Islington Exhibits Film Screening – MAKE YOUR OWN DAMN ART




  • Friday 5th July 2013. 7pm – 9pm.

Special event as part of Islington Exhibits

MAKE YOUR OWN DAMN ART

Followed by a Q&A session with artist Bob and Roberta Smith and director John Rogers.

UK 2012 Dir. John Rogers. 75 min. (Cert12)

This is a documentary about the artist Bob & Roberta Smith, in reality one person called Patrick Brill, who has become renowned for his humorous, opinionated, polemical art works. He occupies a unique position in the art world as an outsider who is a Trustee of the Tate Gallery and an artist whose work is found in The Guardian and major galleries but also in small, unheralded spaces. What distinguishes Bob from the mainstream contemporary art world is his commitment to the idea that art is a vital part of democracy, and that art itself must be democratic. The film follows Bob over three years, providing a unique insight into one of Britain’s most important artists at work, reflecting on art and the role it plays in society today.
