As part of a collaboration with Manchester Art Gallery and their Protest! exhibition, we are delighted to announce a retrospective of one of the most influential figures in contemporary British culture.
A set designer, author, gardener and filmmaker who merged avant-garde practices with a painterly approach to cinema composition and framing, Jarman was also a pivotal and pioneering figure in gay rights activism.
Comprising all of his features as director – and some other delights to reflect his work with key musicians of the day – Jarman at HOME will also feature some special guests and speakers.
