TV MUSEUM PART 3 SCREENING

Dates: 16 Sep - 20 Sep

Show Time: 11.00am - 8.00pm

Tickets: €0.00 (Admission Free)

Part three of a four-part series of lectures and screenings curated by writer, lecturer and researcher Maeve Connolly. This screening of Stuart Marshall, Distinct, 1979 will run continuously throughout the day and will be accompanied by a lecture by Connolly on 17 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.
