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.
