LoCo Film Festival: Movie 43 UK Premiere / Thursday 24th January 2013

TIME AND PLACE

Party 10pm / Screening Midnight

@ Ritzy Picturehouse,
Brixton Oval, SW2 1JG

Tickets £10 here, and at the box office

The second LoCo London Comedy Film Festival follows their 2012 smashing debut with the UK premiere of the biggest, boldest, ballsiest Hollywood comedy of the year, featuring Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Emma Stone, Richard Gere, Kate Winslet and more. This all-star, gleefully offensive sketch comedy was co-created by Peter Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary), with directors including Brett Ratner, Elizabeth Banks and Griffin Dunne, so we don’t recommend you bring your grandmother. Unless she’s very, very dirty. Join LoCo in the upstairs bar from 10pm for a pre-premiere party, followed by the screening (90mins) at midnight.

A Bigger Splash Exhibition @ Tate Modern / until Monday 1st April 2013

TIME AND PLACE

10am-6pm Sunday – Thursday
Last admission: 5.15pm

10am-10pm Friday – Saturday
Last admission: 9.15pm

@ Tate Modern
Bankside, SE1 9TG

Tickets £10, concessions available

This exhibition will take a new look at the dynamic relationship between performance and painting since 1950. Contrasting key paintings by Jackson Pollock and David Hockney, the exhibition considers two different approaches to the idea of the canvas as an arena in which to act: one gestural, the other one theatrical. The paintings of the Vienna Actionists or the Shooting Pictures of Niki de St Phalle will be re-presented within the performance context that they were made, and juxtaposed with works by artists such as Cindy Sherman or Jack Smith that used the face and body as a surface, often using make-up in work dealing with gender role-play. The exhibition proposes a new way of looking at the work of a number of younger artists whose approach to painting is energised by these diverse historical sources, drawing upon action painting, drag and the idea of the stage set.

On Monday 28th January / 6.45pm-7.45pm, self-defining Queer artist Tim “Timberlina,” will be constructing a performance tour of the exhibition, centred around exploring the exhibition for broader sensibilities and notions of Queer past and present. Tickets are £10 / £7 concessions, and include a free glass of wine.

NBCQ: Everyday plus Q&A Shirley Henderson @ Renoir Cinema / Monday 21st January 2013

TIME AND PLACE:

Screening: 18.30

@ Renoir Cinema

The Brunswick, London WC1N 1AW

Entry: £12

www.curzoncinemas.com

Everyday tells the story of Ian ( John Simm) who is sent to prison for drug smuggling and the impact his incarceration has on his family. In order to reflect the passing of time, Michael Winterbottom made the film over the same length of time as Ian’s sentence – five years. The result is both innovative and, as has come to be expected of this singular filmmaker, an involving and emotionally engaging drama.
