Roseberry Road Studios, the newest exhibition space in Bath, is to host a major retrospective in October featuring past and new works from one of the UK's foremost video artists compiled over 50 years of continuous practice in the moving image.
Terry Flaxton has been a leading light in British video art for almost two decades and assembled an impressive body of work combining highly personal, poetic video art with powerful, polemical documentary.
His work has been exhibited all over the world, with five runs at the Cathedral of St John the Divine in New York, each of which attracted 1.2 million visitors.
A winner of major international awards, Flaxton’s career has seen him work as cinematographer to numerous celebrities such as Madonna, Van Morrison, Grace Jones and Queen Latifa, and win writing and directing commissions from the BBC and Channel 4.
The upcoming retrospective at Bath’s Roseberry Road Studios is structured to take place as a journey upwards through several floors of the city’s latest exhibition and events space which opened in May and is located on Roseberry Road.
During the six-week run, Terry Flaxton will also be premiering a major new work, ‘Mexico: Landscapes of the Art’.
A limited number of free tickets for the launch event, which will take place from 6-11pm on 6 October, are available through Eventbrite at https://bit.ly/44AXvIU
The exhibition will then be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 7 October and 29 October, from 11am until 5pm.
Roseberry Road Studios seeks to provide inspiring creative spaces for arts and media practice, supporting innovative and critical practice across visual arts, performance, dance and film.
Terry Flaxton is a lifetime Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, and a lifetime Royal West of England Academician.
