London Community Video Archive (LCVA)
FRIDAY 19 MAY, 8pm
Part of ROOM 6.2
A programme of community video screenings in collaboration with London Community Video Archive (LCVA), which was set up to preserve and share videos made by community groups in London between 1969 and 1985.
When they were first produced and screened the videos made a major difference to many communities, highlighting injustices and untold stories on issues ranging from housing, race, gender, ageing, local activism, sex and sexuality, as well focusing on specific areas of London. This rich heritage is now under threat of disappearing, both because of the physical decay and disintegration of half-inch reel-to reel-tape, and the ageing memories of the original ‘Community Video’ practitioners.

ROOM 6.2, April-September
hARTslane is excited to launch its second ROOM 6.0. Our mission for ROOM 6.2 is to offer a platform for the voice and vision of individual female artists. We want to provide opportunities to artists who raise awareness of the role of women in the visual arts and promote public involvement and support. Responding to the Guerrilla Girls' display at the Tate Modern, exposing sexual and racial discrimination in the art world, we question the tradition of awarding power to masculinity to the exclusion of others. The title of our programme mirrors Maya Angelou’s poem “Phenomenal Woman” and is an invitation to celebrate and nurture femininity.
ROOM 6.0 was launched in September 2016, a new socially engaging art exhibiton platform open to submissions with a rolling deadline. ROOM 6.0 focuses on a relevant contemporary issue every 6 months and provides a forum for exploration and cultural engagement on current affairs. Submissions are welcome from artists and curators alike. The specific topic can be addressed through collaborative and site specific projects, exhibitions, workshops, talks and screenings. The programme welcomes proposals from UK based as well as international art practicioners.
