    Solitary Solidarity I — Shy Radicals screening

    For the first instalment of the cycle ‘Solitary Solidarity’, curated by Hamja Ahsan, Page Not Found presents a physical screening of the film Shy Radicals.

    Shy Radicals is a portrait of Hamja Ahsan and the story behind his remarkable book and satirical manifesto, which calls for all shy, quiet, and introverted people to unify and overthrow Extrovert-Supremacy.

    In his book Shy Radicals, Hamja Ahsan has not simply created an artwork, he has created a world that blurs the boundaries between creator and creation, between real life and the life of the imagination, between reality and an imagined fiction in which he is a leading character.

    The documentary follows Hamja as he deals with the trauma and despair of his brother’s extradition case, whilst traveling the world inspiring and educating others through creativity and activism.

    Signed to Ridley Scott’s Black Dog Films, director Tom Dream’s expertise lies in collaboration, working closely with artists to create truly original music videos and documentary films.

    Style-nostalgia, nature, and psychology are recurring themes that feature strongly in Tom’s work, with a passion for capturing ongoing stories as they unfold, illuminating the people behind the music and unpicking human dynamics.

    Tom has a background in music and psychology and currently lives in a 1970s location house in Margate.

    Starts at 19:00. Reserve your free ticket here.

🌱📄This Saturday 18 September we are excited to host ‘The Artist’s Novel: The Novel as a Medium in the Visual Arts’, a symposium curated by @david.marotto , with contributions by Yann Chateigné Tytelman, Cally Spooner and Chris Kraus.

❕Physical attendance is fully booked, but plenty of spots are still available for our livestream! Register for free via the link in our bio 💚

🌿📃 Why do artists write novels? What does the artist’s novel do to the visual arts? How should such a novel be experienced? In recent years, there has been a proliferation of visual artists who create novels as part of their wider art projects. They do so in order to address artistic issues by means of novelistic devices, favouring a sort of art predicated on process and subjectivity, introducing notions such as fiction, narrative, and imagination. In this sense, it is possible to speak of a new medium in the visual arts; yet, very little is known about it.

🪴📖Join us for an evening of discussion, performance, and sharing across disciplines during the launch of David Maroto’s The Artist’s Novel: The Novel as a Medium in the Visual Arts (Mousse Publishing, 2020). This two-volume book is the first to explore in depth the subject of the artist’s novel.

☘️📑Accompanying David in the discussion, writer and curator Yann Chateigné Tytelman will examine the different ways contemporary artists have employed the artist’s novel, and its impact on the curatorial and institutional context with which it interacts.

🍂📜Artist Cally Spooner will carry out a reading performance from her new artist’s novel in progress, Dead Time – which will serve as a springboard to discuss notions of fiction and performativity in relation to the artist’s novel.

🍃📓Writer and critic Chris Kraus will engage in conversation with David on the introduction of fictocritical writing practices in contemporary art, and the emergence of hybrid textual strategies where theory and practice, fiction and research, literature and the visual arts, merge.
