The work of David Shrigley effortlessly infuses a comedic sensibility into a serious fine art practice. David Shrigley: Brain Activity showcases the diversity of the artist’s work — amateurish, crude drawings, hand-crafted sculptures made of unusual materials, and installations characterized by incongruities of scale — offering insightful and often surreal commentary on the absurdities of life, death and everything in between. Irreverent and mischievous, Shrigley’s art presents the kind of odd scenarios you never come across in real life, but wish you did.
Finally available in a new 35mm print, Celine and Julie Go Boating is a brilliant meditation on the art of cinema and the nature of fantasy.
This magical tale recounts the adventures of Julie, a librarian, and the flamboyant Celine, a magician of sorts and a White Rabbit who leads Julie right through the Looking Glass into a world of her imagination. One of the seminal films of the seventies as well as a key feminist work, it’s regarded by many as New Wave master Jacques Rivette's most accomplished film. (1974, 193 min, 35mm)
