The Rough Cut + Louise Shelley

The Rough Cut is a free event for new work and work-in-progress by artists working with the moving image. For artists, it’s a useful way to share and get feedback on your work in a supportive environment. For everyone else, it’s a chance to see interesting new films.

Each session is moderated by a guest curator or artist, who also gives an introduction to their own practice. The moderator for February 2019 was Louise Shelley, but regrettably the event was cancelled. We hope to welcome Louise to a future edition of The Rough Cut.

About the moderator

Louise Shelley is the Cubitt Curatorial Fellow for 2018/19 where she will develop a 15-month public programme working from the structure of Cubitt as an artist-run co-operative. She is interested in how the gallery in this context can develop collective ways for working, pedagogy and presentation. Previous to Cubitt she was the Collaborative Projects Curator at The Showroom, London from 2010 to 2018 where she ran Communal Knowledge. Communal Knowledge was a series of collaborative projects with local and international artists to propose and activate approaches to critical engagement with The Showroom’s social and cultural surroundings. Louise is also a member of the Cinenova Working Group, a non-profit, volunteer run feminist film distributor.
