Rose Street Film Club: this edition curated by Calvin Laing

9pm–11pm

 

Calvin Laing, still from Calvin & Forth

Every Wednesday evening during the festival, we’ll be hosting curated screenings artists' films, accompanied by performances and introductions from the artists involved.

 

For this edition of the Rose Street Film Club, artist Calvin Laing presents new work.

 

Through his highly intriguing works, Laing explores the potential of objects and situations by making interventions into a given environment. Whilst engaged with performance art as a way to preserve the liveliness and immediacy of his ideas, Laing’s films challenge our perceptions of how live performances are altered and re-performed through the act of being filmed. Laing graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2011 and has exhibited in Estonia, Iceland, and Florence. 

 

Free to attend, but booking is essential.
