Globe City

What happens when you take a Hollywood narrative, deconstruct it and reconstruct the deconstruction? ‘Artists vs. Hollywood’ was an exhibition of film works that highlighted the relationship between contemporary artists, moving image practise and mainstream cinema. Featuring a selection of works from six international artists, the exhibition broke down narrative, representation and stardom in order to interrogate one of the most powerful industries in the world.

Featuring: Candice Breitz, Stuart Croft, Stan Douglas, Steven Eastwood, Matthias Müller & Christoph Girardet
Curated by: Joanna Callaghan (UK) Lubi Thomas (Australia)
