NEW DISPLAY: Exhibition for unique Northwood-born filmmaker opened

 Published on: 29th November 2019   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

A fascinating retrospective exhibition of a Northwood-born filmmaker offers a unique look at his life and works.

The exhibition PROTEST!, which is currently at Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) in Dublin, is a tribute to late British cult artist and filmmaker, Derek Jarman.

Jarman is best known for his 1993 film, Blue; an art film exploring his own experiences with AIDS, which he died from in 1994.

The artist and activist was born in Northwood in 1942 and studied at King’s College and the Slade School of Fine Art.

IMMA and Thames and Hudson will also publish a major new monograph on Jarman to accompany the retrospective, covering Jarman’s artistic development as well as reflecting on his life and legacy.

The book will feature contributions from Seán Kissane, Curator, IMMA; Sir Norman Rosenthal; Jonny Bruce, gardener and journalist; Professor Robert Mills, University of London; Jon Savage, music critic and writer; Michael Charlesworth, an authority on landscape and the history of gardens and author of the book Derek Jarman, Critical Lives, and writers Olivia Laing and Philip Hoare.

The exhibition is open in Dublin until February 23, 2020, and will then open in Manchester Art Gallery from April 2, 2020 to August 31, 2020.
