Lis Rhodes exhibits visually and politically pioneering films alongside work by three Glasgow-based contemporary artists who share her commitment to radical practice.
In the most significant exhibition of her work in Scotland to date, Lis Rhodes presents three films – Pictures on Pink Paper (1982), Dissonance and Disturbance (2012) and Ambiguous Journeys (2018) – which have all been acquired by The Hunterian via the Freelands Art Fund Acquisition award. Rhodes's earliest work on display is seminal within feminist filmmaking due to its exploitation of gendered systems of value and power. Her two later films critique key geopolitical issues, ranging from state policing, protest movements, migration and the global impact of neoliberalism.
Alongside Rhodes’s films will be presentations by Anne-Marie Copestake, Francis McKee and Iman Tajik, three contemporary artists living and working in Glasgow, who are similarly dedicated to a radical politics of filmmaking.
