Hugh Lane Gallery presents four programmes of films to be screened in Gallery 18 to accompany the exhibition Andy Warhol Three Times Out.

Film Screening: Queer Punk Female Visions from the 1980s and 1990s.

Saturday 7 October, 1pm

The works presented are by a group of women, who emerged out of St Martin’s school of art in the 1980s including Anne Robinson with Wildtrax, Sarah Turner, Ruth Novaczek, Helena Goldwater and Sandra Lahire. These lo-fi, intense and emotionally charged films have great relevance to today in the ways in which they take charge of their own representation as queer women as well as their concern with the effects of nuclear power, anorexia and relationships.  Presented by Rachel Garfield, with a post-screening Q+A.

Free, advance booking required via Eventbrite.

The next programme in this series is Notes on Marie Menken (2017, 97 minutes), on Saturday 11 November at 1pm.
