Additional Information (Publicly available):

The Video Art pioneer David Hall (1937–2014) who passed away in October 2014 was a crucial figure in British art of the post war period. His work across sculpture, film, video and installations pioneered new areas of practice and played a crucial role in the first chapter of video art in the UK. An impassioned teacher and influential advocate for video art, Hall was the co-organiser of The Video Show 1975, the first major international show of artists’ video in the UK. He was also co-founder of London Video Arts (now LUX) and a member of the Artist Placement Group and founded the first time based media course at Maidstone College of Art in 1972. His works has been exhibited and collected internationally. Hall was as adept working on his Television Interruptions for broadcasters from the BBC to MTV as he was presenting his work at the world’s leading museums and exhibitions, from Documenta to the Centre Pompidou.

This evening will reflect on the rich legacy of Hall’s work with screenings of selected works and presentations from many collaborators and colleagues. Guest speakers Steven Ball, Anna Ridley, Stephen Partridge and the event will be chaired by Catherine Elwes.
