ARTISTS’ FILM AND VIDEO AT ITS BEST – THE JARMAN AWARD 2012 SHORTLISTED ARTISTS SCREENING AT DUKE OF YORK’S CINEMA
A programme of short film works by the ten artists shortlisted for this year’s prestigious Jarman Award: Brad Butler & Karen Mirza; Aura Satz; Ben Rivers; Benedict Drew; James Richards; Shezad Dawood; Nathaniel Mellors; Matt Stokes; Marcus Coates and Jon Thomson & Alison Craighead. This Jarman Award Tour celebrates the rich and eclectic array of work emerging in recent years, offering a comprehensive survey of the work and practice of UK based film and video artists.
The Film London Jarman Award is an annual prize inspired by one of Britain’s most innovative, esteemed and controversial artists of the late 20th century, Derek Jarman. Celebrating the spirit of experimentation, imagination and inspiration in the work of UK artist film-makers, The Jarman Award recognises individual artist film-makers whose risk-taking work resists boundaries and conventional definition.
The winner of the annual prize, which is presented by Film London in partnership with Channel 4 and the Whitechapel Gallery, receives a £10,000 cash prize as well as a broadcast commission for Channel 4’s Random Acts strand.
The winner of the Jarman Award for 2012 will be announced at a special event on 5 November at London’s Whitechapel Gallery.
