Fine Arts event in conjunction with the Rome Film Festival:

On the occasion of the UK ‘Focus’ event of this year’s Rome International Film Festival, The British School at Rome presents a video programme titled Responding to Rome, which will be screened in the BSR Sainsbury Lecture Theatre on Friday, 4 November 2011, at 5:30 and 6:40 PM. The programme, previously unseen in Italy, was part of the exhibition Responding to Rome – British Artists in Rome 1995-2005, curated by Jacopo Benci, held at the Estorick Collection in London in 2006. It includes video works by British artists who have exhibited widely in the UK and internationally: Jordan Baseman, Louise Camrass, Marion Coutts, Dunhill & O’Brien, Mike Marshall, Pat Naldi, Smith/Stewart, Aaron Williamson. The common feature to the works is that they were all shot in Rome.

The programme, lasting 64 minutes, includes the following videos: Jordan Baseman, Daniel (2003); Louise Camrass, Rino Ramazzotti (2002); Marion Coutts, epic (2000); Dunhill & O’Brien, Gates (2003); Mike Marshall, A Place Not Too Far Away (2005); Pat Naldi, High Noon at 12°21’8” (2000); Smith/Stewart, Lovers, Rome (2002); Aaron Williamson, Translation/Translatio (2003).
