Abstract or Description:

This was the first retrospective screening in London of the MAC International 2014 art prize winning Northern Irish artist-filmmaker Mairéad McClean. McClean’s films selected for this programme addressed the colliding fallibility of both government policy and personal memory, and the impact of this tension on family life and childhood in 1950s and 1970s Northern Ireland.

The event was supported by Arts Council England as part of the Whitechapel Gallery symposium & screening series titled Object! On the Documentary as Art. The screening was followed by a conversation with Irish art critic and 2013 Turner Prize judge Declan Long.

Selected by Minou Norouzi.
