Artists’ Film International is a collaborative project featuring film, video and animation from around the world. During 2020 (and early 2021), works responding to the theme of language will unfold across all 20 partner organisations.
Crawford Art Gallery announces its collaboration, for the second year running, with Artists’ Film International (AFI) Established by the Whitechapel Gallery, London in 2008, AFI includes 20 global partners and brings together recent moving image works by artists nominated by each venue, which are presented over the course of a year in each of the 20 institutions.
For 2021, the theme of the AFI programme is ‘care’ and for this year’s participation Crawford Art Gallery has invited Irish artist Clare Langan to present her powerful and timely film Flight from the City (2015) which will be screened in September (Part Two of the programme).
While Crawford Art Gallery looks forward to showing the films later in the year in the gallery’s dedicated screening room – for now – under Level 5 Covid Restrictions the films will be screened in a four-weekly cycle online.
