Screenings
Part of the series In Real Life: Film & Video

Artists’ Film International

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays, SEP 13–OCT 15, 2016

Films will run from noon–4 p.m.

Initiated by the Whitechapel Gallery, London, in 2008, Artists’ Film International is a collaboration between 16 international museums. Every year, each institution proposes one film, video, or animation on a common theme for screening in all the partner venues over the course of the year. This fall the Hammer screens seven films from the 2015 and 2016 collections, which, respectively, examined crisis and technology. The Hammer will add to the video selection in 2017.
