The ICA Artists’ Film Biennial 2016 is a five-day celebration of artists’ film and moving image, which takes place from May 25–29, 2016. The Biennial, now in its second edition offers audiences the opportunity to see some of the best new film and rarely seen works by emerging and established artists, and to engage directly with curators and industry practitioners from all over the world.

Themes of social and political identity permeate the content and subjects explored by the biennial participants. These themes underpin moving image’s relevance in 2016 and emphasise its role as a discursive tool, pushing discussions beyond the walls of the auditorium and into the everyday.    

The 2016 programme includes:

Ambitious profile screenings, presenting comprehensive bodies of work by American artist Ellen Cantor (1961–2013) and Norwegian artist Lars Laumann (b.1975).    

Artist-selected screenings presented by Ahmet ÖğütCharlotte ProdgerMartine Syms and Ming Wong

Curator-selected screenings chosen by Saim Demircan, freelance curator and writer based in Berlin, Hanne Mugaas, director and curator of Kunsthall Stavanger in Norway, and collective Radclyffe Hall, a group of artists committed to exploring culture, aesthetics and learning through the lens of contemporary feminism. 

A programme selected from an artist-filmmaker open call relating to the theme "Outside," and "Always Already Yes," selected from an international curatorial open call

As well as the main biennial programme, events exploring the relationship between the artist, production, distribution, collection, and exhibition of artists’ moving image. Key practitioners from Film and Video Umbrella; The Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN); frieze; HOME; LUX; Soda Film + Art will come together in a series of presentations and seminar discussions aimed at industry professionals.    

The Biennial’s comprehensive series of screenings and talks extends the ICA Artists’ Film Club, our programme of artists’ film, which profiles and debates the best international artists’ moving image. The Artists’ Film Club platforms emerging and established artist filmmakers here in London, and at partner venues across the UK via the ICA’s Artists' Moving Image Network.

The Artists’ Film Biennial 2016 is co-ordinated by Steven Cairns, ICA Associate Curator of Artists’ Film and Moving Image.
