Lucy Raven’s art focuses on the marginal spaces in image production – what happens behind the camera or between the frames of a film. With a true aficionado’s eye, she has handpicked a film programme spanning nine decades of cinema, pairing classic shorts and rarities with cult features and animations guaranteed to appeal to those in search of new discoveries as well as the opportunity to enjoy old favourites in this rare gallery setting.

Maria Palacios Cruz is Deputy Director at LUX, London. From 2010 to 2012, she was the director of Courtisane, an annual festival in Ghent, Belgium, where she continues to be involved as an associate programmer. She has curated screenings, events and exhibitions for festivals and institutions including Tate Britain, London; Union Docs, New York; Cinematek, Brussels; Impakt, Utrecht; WIELS, Brussels; M HKA, Antwerp; Centre Pompidou, Paris. Together with Mark Webber, she is the co-founder of The Visible Press, a London-based imprint for books on cinema and writings by filmmakers. She writes regularly on artists' moving image, with recent texts on Laida Lertxundi, Manon de Boer, Jennifer West and Basma Alsharif.
