Coinciding with the exhibition Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World, this screening explores how modernist art and design is referenced and re-emerges in contemporary moving image practice. A rare screening of Gregory Markopoulos’s 16mm film portrait of Barbara Hepworth, Moment (1970), is followed by video works by artists Shana Moulton and Lucy Stein, Pauline Beaudemont, Ursula Mayer, Elizabeth Price, Maria Taniguchi and Mark Leckey.

Jarman Award winner Ursula Mayer and visual artist Lucy Stein will be joined by lecturer and curator Dr Lucy Reynolds and Tate Britain’s Assistant Curator Inga Fraser to discuss how subsequent generations of artists occupy and appropriate territories of high modernism.
