Still from Pedagogue
The pioneer video work of the late Stuart Marshall, who died of Aids in 1993, is being shown at the Tate Modern as part of the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Marshall's work was included in The Video Show, the first ever video exhibition at the Tate Gallery in 1976. He was an educator, writer, composer, and independent film and video maker. In 1976 with Tamara Krikorian, Steven Partridge, David Hall and others, he established London Video Arts, an artist-run workshop, distribution and promotion agency. His work focuses on the historical and political construction of homosexual identity as a deviant, outsider category, positioning the homosexual as the catch-all bogeyman of societal fears and conformist pressure. The first programme is tonight at 6:30 pm and will includes Pedagogue (1988, made in partnership with Neil Bartlett, who will introduce the film) and the next one is next Tuesday (11/4) at the same time and will include The Streets of... (date unknown) and The Love Show (1980).
At the Starr Auditorium, Tate Modern.
