In Conversation: Cécile B. Evans

Jarman Award shortlisted artist Cécile B. Evans examines the value of emotions in contemporary societies, and their rebellion as they come into contact with the power structures that directly impact our daily lives.

Her videos, which combine live action and digital animation, use narrative to negotiate the possibility of many diverse realities within a common space. Join the artist and Towner Curator Noelle Collins for a discussion around her current work and practice.

The talk will be followed by a screening of all six shortlisted films (110 minutes).
