RESIST & PLAY // Screening and discussion with Rhea Storr
24 JAN 6-8PM
FREE + OPEN TO ALL
To coincide with her Fungus Press poster commission, Turf will be screening Rhea’s Storr’s latest film, ‘A Protest, A Celebration, A Mixed Message‘ (2018). This will be followed by a discussion with the artist about the film, her recent Fungus Press posters, and her broader practice.
The research undertaken during the production of ‘A Protest, A Celebration, A Mixed Message‘ was also the initial point of departure for Storr’s Fungus Press posters.
This event is free to attend and open to all but booking is recommended, as spaces are limited.
