Events Announcement for Henry Moore Institute

The Henry Moore Institute’s United Enemies film screenings , Wednesdays 1, 8 and 15 February 2012, 6pm, at Leeds Art Gallery Lecture Theatre

As part of our current exhibition United Enemies: The Problem of Sculpture in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s, the Henry Moore Institute presents three film screenings. United Enemies examines the problem of sculpture in the 1960s and 1970s, presenting work by over fifty artists made in a period when the very idea of sculpture was radically contested.

Each screening highlights the three key provocations that organise this exhibition: ‘Manual Thinking’, ‘Standing’ and ‘Groundwork’, presenting rarely screened films made by artists in the exhibition alongside radical and influential work produced by British experimental filmmakers of the period. The series features live expanded cinema works performed in person by David Dye and Malcolm Le Grice and the guest attendance of Sebastian Boyle of The Boyle Family.
