The Whitechapel Gallery is hosting Acme Artists’ Films, a programme of screenings of work made by artist tenants of short-life housing managed by Acme between 1972 and 1982. Acme was pioneering in many ways, and not least for the way it supported artists working with experimental moving images, both through the provision of houses and studios and at the Acme Gallery in Covent Garden (1976-81). The special programme of rarely seen works will showcase titles in their original 16mm format by artists John du Cane, Gill Eatherley, Ron Haselden, Annabel Nicolson, Ken McMullen and William Raban.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A, featuring Jonathan Harvey, co-founder and chief executive of Acme Studios, Ken McMullen and William Raban.
