Cooper Gallery: Digital Exhibition

The Cooper Gallery Exhibition: A Space In-Between has been postponed but many of the materials, videos and resources are up on the gallery’s website.

Including everything from reading, listening and screening material, over at their page you can find:

  • Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema
    A film in which Mulvey reads sections of her text to camera, interspersed with clips from the Hollywood movies that inspired her analysis, and fragments of her original text.
  • Frida Kahlo and Tina Modotti
    In 1982, Mulvey and Wollen curated an exhibition of Frida Kahlo and Tina Modotti’s work at the Whitechapel Gallery. This hugely influential exhibition provided the subject for Mulvey and Wollen’s documentary Frida Kahlo and Tina Modotti (1983), which offers a powerful assessment of both artists’ lives and work.
  • GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES (remix remixed)
    A digital re-edit of an iconic film fragment focusing on the performance and gesture of Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe, made by Laura Mulvey. The short video examines representational power, the significance of the performed gesture and the temporal effects of deferred meaning.

Have a look at Cooper Gallery’s website and across their social media channels to keep up with all the amazing resources being shared!
