In association with Maeve Brennan’s exhibition, we have a programme of related events including a conversation between the artist and Erika Balsom, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies and Liberal Arts at King’s College London, on Tuesday 4 April, 7pm. A screening of Maeve Brennan’s new film The Drift will take place at 6pm, ahead of the event. This event is free to attend but booking is recommended. To reserve a place, please visit our Eventbrite page here. For more information on all of the events, please click here.     

To accompany her exhibition, Maeve Brennan has produced a new limited edition artwork. Untitled (Scrap Yard Zaytoun, Britel) is a film-still taken from Brennan’s new film, The Drift. Depicting a bird’s eye view of a scrap yard floor in the Beqaa Valley, Lebanon, the film-still reveals a layering of used car parts trodden into the red earth. For more information about the edition, please visit our online shop.

Ayo Akingbade’s film, Tower XYZ (2016)which was produced as part of our Stop Play Record programme last year, has been shortlisted for the International Competition and the Children’s and Youth Film Competition at International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. Applications for the 2017-18 Stop Play Record programme continue until 17 April. Selected from an annual open call, Chisenhale Gallery will work with two young filmmakers to conceive and produce two new short films between 90 seconds and 3 minutes long.
