About Town – Video art in Southside

Thursday 13 – Sunday 16 November 2014, 4-10pm, free

Ikon, in partnership with Hippodrome Plus, presents an exhibition of international video art in the Southside district, showcasing a wide variety of free night-screenings by artists from the UK and abroad, in unusual urban spaces. Artists include Adel Abdessemed Roy Arden, Kevin Atherton, Oliver Beer, Marjolijn Dijkman, Dean Kelland, Vladimir Logutov, Kelly Mark, Heather and Ivan Morison, Grace Ndiritu, Junebum Park, Cornelia Parker, Perry Roberts, Santiago Sierra, Beat Streuli, Gillian Wearing and Yang Zhenzhong

Over four November evenings these free night-screenings will feature a selection of films from Ikon’s exhibition programme, shown alongside new commissions inspired by their locations. Each work explores everyday city life and reflects on how we shape and are shaped by our surroundings whilst also expanding our understanding of video art.

About Town will take you to industrial locations and intimate interiors; vast displays of urban life in empty car parks and unexpected installations in the Hippodrome’s staircases – take this chance to explore Southside with your friends and family,
all for free.
