Mulvey, Wollen, and Art With an introduction by Mark Francis

Thursday 12 May

Whitechapel Gallery

‘Join a screening of Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen’s works on artists as part of the Whitechapel Gallery film season Laura Mulvey & Peter Wollen: Beyond the Scorched Earth of Counter-Cinema.

In 1982, Mulvey and Wollen curated an exhibition of Frida Kahlo and Tina Modotti’s work at the Whitechapel Gallery. This hugely influential exhibition, which was the first retrospective of Kahlo’s work outside of Mexico, provided the subject for Mulvey and Wollen’s documentary Frida Kahlo and Tina Modotti (1983), which offers a powerful assessment of both artists’ lives and work.’
