Explore the processes and ethics of restoring artists’ films with an expert panel.
Taking as its case study Malcolm Le Grice’s seminal 1972 expanded film Threshold (which is currently in the process of being restored for preservation by the BFI National Archive), this panel discussion will explore the processes and ethics of restoring artists’ films, how decisions are shaped by a work’s material elements and the intentions of the artist, its production history, past and future exhibitions, and the working practices of the archive. With Malcolm Le Grice, William Fowler (Curator of Artists’ Moving Image, BFI National Film Archive), Kieron Webb (Film Conservation Manager, BFI National Film Archive). Chaired by Charlotte Procter (Collections Manager, LUX).
