FILM SCREENING: LIVING ORGANISM: Women Artists of the North East Library

Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle 30 August 2018 

Kate Liston, Holly Argent and Tess Denman Cleaver


As part of the exhibition Women Artists of the North East Library at Workplace Foundation curated by Holly Argent, this screening situates Newcastle-based artist Kate Liston’s film ‘Treatment’ alongside a selection of work influential to her practice, including a live performance of ‘Mutualism’ by Tess Denman-Cleaver, written around Liston’s film.


In dialogue with Liston’s ‘Film for EBM’, Ella Bergmann-Michel’s ‘Wo Wohnen Alte Leute’, (Where the Old People Live, 1931) observes a working day in an old people’s home in Weimar Germany. Modernist architecture moves in tandem with its inhabitants and becomes a social being—a ‘living organism’.


A discussion with Kate Liston, Tess Denman-Cleaver and Holly Argent will follow.

Women Artists of the North East Library, curated by Holly Argent, runs at Workplace Foundation, Gateshead from 22 June – 9 September.
