Bitter Sweet // screening event in association with Lux

Free, booking required via Eventbrite
Please note this screening is not suitable for people under the age of 18.
Bitter sweet is the first lung event of 2016, a new series of collaborative events between CGP London and lux.
This programme of film and video works drawn from the lux collection presents an alternative to saccharine valentine’s romance. Considering the other side of love, sex and relationships, the works in the programme focus on obsession, desire, fantasy and dependence.
CGP London and Lux are excited to announce Lung, a new year-long partnership presenting a series of events across both CGP London sites in the heart of Southwark Park.
Since the 18th Century, the parks and green spaces of london have often been referred to as the ‘lungs of london’, providing physical and psychological breathing space for the inhabitants of a rapidly developing city.
Lung will provide a new regular space for the presentation and discussion of moving image and performance-based work throughout CGP London’s 2016 programme, in an informal, familiar environment, shifting as the seasons do.

in 2016, our programme will include the first london solo exhibition (across both venues in collaboration with Matt’s gGallery, London) by Graham Fagen since 2002, a new installation commission by Paul Carter and Lesions in the Landscape by Shona Illingworth (across both venues, commissioned by FACT, Liverpool). In addition to the core funding from Arts Council England and Southwark Council, we rely on financial support from trusts, foundations and individuals to present an ambitious programme of exhibitions, screening, events and learning activities.
