Street Level Photoworks present La Nuit de L'Instant
La Nuit de l’Instant is a collaboration between Street Level Photoworks and Centre Photographique Marseille and is a projection-based event celebrating the still and the moving image in joyful and compelling ways. The works will mark Glasgow’s links with its twin-town of Marseille with new works by Camille Fallet, Valentine Vermeil and Kotryna Ula Kiliulyte produced from exchange residencies between the two cities, alongside works by Marie Chéné and Didier Nadeau, Sylvia Donis, Flavie Pintanel, Valérie Horwicz and Lisa Lucciardi.
Projection works by artists in Northern European countries from Street Level’s current and forthcoming partnerships will also be shown – from Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia and Finland. The works will be showcased across four different locations concentrated around Street Level – Brittania Panopticon, Gallery 103, Avant Garde Function Room and Street Level’s studio.
Full programme details will be shared in due course. Programmed as part of Glasgow International 2018 ‘Across the City’.
Part of the ongoing Twinning between Glasgow and Marseille, supported by
Glasgow City Council and La Ville de Marseille, l’Institut Français and MP 2018 season ‘Quel Amour’.
