Artist Talk: Eric Bainbridge in conversation with Keith Wilson

Artist Talk - Eric Bainbridge in conversation with Keith Wilson

20 September 2011


Artist Talk, North Member Programme

Circa Screen
The Place, Athenaeum Street
Sunderland, SR1 1QX

Over the past 35 years, Eric Bainbridge has created an extensive body of work and become best known for his sculptures and collages, which have been exhibited internationally, including at Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis (1986), The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1989), Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2003) and recently in Modern British Sculpture at the Royal Academy, London (2010)

Bainbridge’s video works remain a relatively unconsidered aspect of practice, although he first began using video to document objects and incidents in the studio nearly twenty years ago, at a time when his entire way of working was changing dramatically. The exhibition Video Show brings together a number of these works and is the first time they have been shown as stand-alone projections, presented in a cinematic context. Video Show is also the first exhibition at CIRCA Screen, a new space dedicated to presenting the works of artists working across film, video and the moving image.

Join us for the Private View and In Conversation event, and hear Bainbridge discuss his video works in the context of his of broader practice with Keith Wilson, artist and co-curator of Modern British Sculpture..

This event is part of a series of events programmed by the Contemporary Art Society in the North East. Membership costs £50 per year / £25 for students.
