The Silver and the Cross by Harun Farocki and Amnesialand by Stefanos Tsivopoulos
The Penzance Convention
Extraction : Projection
April 27 – 28
Framing The Penzance Convention and deepening exploration of the theme, The Exchange will present an exhibition of projected image work in the weeks leading up to the Convention, with support from LUMA Foundation. This exhibition is part of an eight-week programme of educational activities and artist-led events and discussions organised by The Exchange around the theme of extraction. The season opens on 27 and 28 April with films by Harun Farocki and Stefanos Tsivopoulos. Running concurrently, The Exchange will present archive footage compiled by Awen Productions from South West Film and Television Archive relating to Cornwall’s extractive industries – mining, fishing and farming. Abigail Reynolds has designed a transformation of The Exchange, drawing on the tradition of the artist’s cinema and of low cost alternative art spaces. This space will host the Extraction: Projection exhibition and will also accommodate The Penzance Convention.
The Exchange, Penzance, 10am – 5pm
