Central Saint Martins has been crucial to artists’ moving image culture in the UK since the 1960s. Temporalities (20 February - 24 March) is an exhibition drawing on the rich history of fine art moving image at the college and projecting that practice into the future with Correspondence a series of newly commissioned responses by current students to historical student film and video work. 


Throughout the exhibition there will be a series of lunchtime talks which will examine the past, present and future implications of fine art moving image at Central Saint Martins and beyond. These talks are free and open to all, view the schedule below to find out more.

Feminist Circles at St Martin’s
Wednesday 14 March, 6.30pm | Lecture Theatre E003
Founded in 1979 Circles was the first women artists' film and video distribution organisation in Britain. It emerged from the increasingly politicised cultural climate of the late 1970s, in which the Women’s Movement played an influential part, and it provided an essential role in the promotion and distribution of exclusively women filmmakers, supporting filmmaking which varied from political and social document to more experimental modes of practice. During the 1980s, St Martin’s became an important site for the development of the relationship between Feminism and artists’ moving image practice, which is reflected in the representation of many teachers’ and students’ works in the Circles catalogue. Screening curated by Charlotte Procter (Archivist, Cinenova Distribution).

Just Images
Friday 16 March, 6.30pm | Lecture Theatre E003
This is Now: Film and Video After Punk celebrates the diversity of independent moving image production from the UK in the 1980s, a unique moment when cheap new technologies enabled new voices to be heard. A new aesthetic developed that would shape the look of film, television, fashion and music for many years to come. In Just Images the moral, political and symbolic integrity of the image itself is interrogated and overturned in these richly textured films. Includes work by Cerith Wyn Evans and Isaac Julian, some made while studying at St Martin’s. Screening curated by William Fowler.
