TestBed 1 at Beaconsfield
Artists: Michael Curran in collaboration with Lucy Gunning, Anthony Gross, Lilli Hartmann, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Dafna Talmor, Joseph Walsh
Live film production crossing performance, installation and the act of making art. Beaconsfield produces six new commissions, co-curated with Dafna Talmor and Joe Walsh.
In the time of YouTube, video cameras and home-editing suites, the creative process has become more democratic, enabling people en masse to become not only viewers but ‘creators’. TestBed 1 responds to popular practice by commissioning artists working with the moving image to use these readily available modes of production.
From March until late July commissioned artists will work in the galleries in a series of residencies. The public is invited to witness our galleries turn laboratories, turn performance and production sites. An accompanying FlatScreen programme of artists films and linked material will also show on site throughout the period.
On-Site Residency Dates:
Pil and Galia Kollectiv – 9 May
Joseph Walsh 20 April – 30 May
Lilli Hartmann 27 April – 4 June
Dafna Talmor 22 June – 18 July
