The Art Fund, in participation with Picturehouse Cinemas, have invited a series of celebrated artists to select a film which has inspired them and their work, to participate in a Q&A session and to attend a screening of their chosen film.
First to participate is Jake Chapman In Conversation with Adrian Searle as he discusses his film of choice – Sidney Lumet’s The Offence.
Born in Cheltenham in 1966, Jake Chapman graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1990 along with his younger brother Dinos. In 1991, the brothers received critical acclaim for their sculpture, Disasters of War, a reinterpretation of Goya's etchings. Part of the legendary YBA (Young British Artists) faction, the Chapmans’ work has been collected by Charles Saatchi among others, and in 2003 the artists were shortlisted for the Turner Prize.
Adrian Searle has been art critic for The Guardian since 1996.
Sidney Lumet is an American film director with over 50 films to his name and four Academy Award nominations for Best Director including those for 12 Angry Men (1957), Dog Day Afternoon (1975), Network (1976), and The Verdict (1982).
The Offence (1972) stars a post-James Bond Sean Connery, a police detective tormented by the crimes that returned to haunt him.
