Thank you to everyone who joined us last Saturday for a talk by Orit Gat, who is a writer on contemporary art and digital culture and contributing editor of The White Review. Images are from the event, by Sam Nightingale. 

Please join us on Thursday 27 July, 7pm for a screening of Portrait of Jason (Shirley Clarke, 1967) presented in association with MUBI. Jason Holliday was a brilliant figure from the New York underground, rumoured to have sat for a Warhol screen test, which has since been lost. Clarke’s film, shot on 16mm black and white film, is composed of non-linear takes, in which Holliday, prompted by the director, recounts and performs episodes of his life for the camera. In conjunction with Thompson’s exhibition, autoportrait, MUBI are offering Chisenhale Gallery audiences a free month subscription to their online cinema.
