Moving Portraits explores the past sixty years of portraits in moving image by significant international artists practising in the field of film and video technology. By using this technology, the artist has expanded the language and notion of the portrait genre. The works in this exhibition are all experimental of their time and include well-known sitters and subjects as well as more personal portraits of friends and family. Moving Portraits is curated by Jane Won at the De La Warr Pavilion in association with David Curtis at the British Artists’ Film and Video Study Collection.
