The screening of Stuart Marshall, Distinct, 1979 will run continuously in the gallery from 16 – 20 September.
TV Museum: The Mini-Series is a four-part lecture and screening programme created by Maeve Connolly. Structured around various characters, plotlines and situations drawn from Connolly’s forthcoming book TV Museum, the series explores and extends ideas central to her ongoing research on contemporary art and media. Unfolding over a year, the programme will configure these ideas as a parallel narrative, intersecting with TV Museum’s analysis of art and television.
