February: Video Space

Maya Deren

Maya Deren

Admission free / Running throughout normal opening hours


This February we’re screening an international programme of films by a selection of rare and iconic artists, which explore some of the themes and ideas in our current exhibition Daria Martin: Sensorium Tests.


Artists include: Yvonne Rainer, Maya Deren and Fernand Léger.


Yvonne Rainer is an American dancer, choreographer and filmmaker, whose work in these disciplines is frequently challenging and experimental. 


Maya Deren was an American avant-garde filmmaker and film theorist of the 1940s and 1950s.


Joseph Léger was a French painter, sculptor, and filmmaker. In his early works he created a personal form of Cubism which he gradually modified into a more figurative, populist style. His boldly simplified treatment of modern subject matter has caused him to be regarded as a forerunner of Pop Art.

What is Video Space?
