LAUNCH EVENT - PureScreen DVD *02

Castlefield Gallery (Manchester, UK) is pleased to present the launch of PureScreen DVD *02, a programme of recent artist film and video work. Curated by Sophia Crilly from the PureScreen 2006/07 screening programmes, the DVD will launch in London on Wed 19 Mar 08 at the ROXY.

PureScreen is Castlefield Gallery’s regular screening event for artist film and video. Since its inception, in March 2003, the programme has provided a platform for outstanding recent work and supported new and established practitioners and curators. It operates an annual, international open call for submissions for new works, and also produces PureScreen: Film & Video Artists Information Pack, compiling international resources with the intention of assisting artists and curators whose practice involves the production and exhibition of moving image work.

PureScreen is supported by Arts Council England, and from each new season of screenings a DVD compilation is produced, which tours internationally, in order to support and promote the practice of the artists PureScreen has worked with.

The films selected for inclusion on PureScreen DVD *02 represent the highlights and a cross-section of the diversity of works from the 2006/07 season of screening programmes. It features recent work by UK and internationally based artists: Jordan Baseman, Dave Griffiths, Alexander Heim, Hamish Dunbar & Jack Holden, Jim Hollands, Esther Johnson, Lisa Keiko Kirton, Rob Kennedy, Jeremy Newman, Alex Pearl, Erica Scourti, Josh Weinstein, and Marilyn Whittle.
