Animated Exeter: Tal Rosner and Karen Alexander, in conversation
Saturday 15 February
With much regret this event has had to be cancelled. Animated Exeter continues to 22 February 2014.
Tal Rosner, BAFTA-winning artist and filmmaker, is the lead artist on Animated Exeter’s feature event, LIGHTSTREAM , taking place on Exeter’s Fore Street on 14 and 15 February from 7pm to 9pm. He will talk with Karen Alexander, senior tutor in the Royal College of Art’s Curating Contemporary Art course, about this project and his work in the field of contemporary video art.
Tal Rosner is BAFTA-winning artist and filmmaker. His work on multi-disciplinary collaborations, from orchestral music and contemporary dance to television graphics, has been described as ‘most astounding’ (The Times) ‘ingenious’ (Variety) and ‘heralding a new genre’ (The New Yorker). With a unique style of digital craftsmanship, he stands out at the forefront of international moving image practice, both on screen and on stage.
Karen Alexander is currently a senior tutor in the Royal College of Art’s Curating Contemporary Art department with responsibility for the work-based pathway (Inspire). Prior to that she worked as a film curator and freelance consultant on film exhibition and distribution. She has contributed to several books on film including British Cinema of the 90s (1997), Women and Film: Sight & Sound Reader (1999), and If Looks Could Kill (2008). From 1998 until 2006 she worked at the British Film Institute, with responsibility for the strategic marketing of BFI Distribution and Archive cinema releases.
