Event preview

THE FOUNDLING Museum has two film events in the coming weeks:

Found Films – in the Museum’s beautiful Picture Gallery on Thursday, July 14, 2016, doors open at 6pm for 6.30pm start. Tickets: £5.

The museum is presenting a programme of films curated by Cornelia Parker, featuring artists included in the current exhibition Found.

Found is a major exhibition featuring over sixty outstanding artists from a range of creative disciplines who have been invited to respond to the theme of ‘found’. The show includes a number of audiovisual works with short films from Michael Craig Martin, Christian Marclay, Laure Prouvost and John Smith.

Sunday Shorts – Sunday, August 7 at 2pm. Free with Museum admission.

Sunday film screening returns with two short films focussing on found objects, inspired by the current exhibition Found.

Albert Larimosse’s Oscar-winning 1956 film The Red Balloon (Cert U, French with subtitles) follows the adventures of a young boy who one day finds a stray red balloon with a mind of its own.

In The Way Things Go (1987) artists Fischli/Weiss document a series of chain reactions as everyday objects crash, scrape, slide or fly into one another with devastating and dramatic effect.
