Thursday 13th September 8pm. FILM CLUB: MAKE YOUR OWN DAMN ART, w/ Bob & Roberta Smith, with director John Rogers Q&A, part of SCALA BEYOND and a chance to bring your own damn art to exhibit at Sugar House Studios on the night.
Bob & Roberta Smith invites you to bring along Your Own Damn Art to the screening creating a pop-up Leytonstone Centre for Contemporary Art in Stratford for one night only. Bring your paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and other art works to add to the infamous LCCA.
Delighted to announce that Make Your Own Damn Art will be screening in London’s Portobello Film Festival on Tuesday 4th September alongside a fantastic programme of art themed films including a rare film of a young David Hockney.
“Filmed over three years and premiered at last week’s East London Film Festival, a new film about Bob and Roberta Smith offers a fascinating insight into the life of the artist.” Read the rest of the article here
“The central message conveyed by Bob and his art is that yes, we should definitely be making our own art. He does cite the apparently inspiration and effort free art from the Hoxton basement dwellers as one main reason for getting out the watercolours; Bob makes it very clear that he thinks the art world struggles under the snobbery and domination of the rich.”
