2017 marks 25 years since the death of Angela Carter, one of the greatest and most original writers of the twentieth century. To commemorate this event, we are holding an Angela Carter Festival in Bristol, including performances, films and an art exhibition at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol called Strange Worlds: The Vision of Angela Carter from 10 December to 19 March 2017.
In response to her extraordinarily visual imagination, this show will exhibit the work of artists who inspired her and also the work of contemporary artists whose art work parallels her writing, including some newly commissioned work.
There will be a symposium at the art gallery and at the Arnolfini, an international arts centre in Bristol on 9-10 January 2017 called Fireworks: The Visual Imagination of Angela Carter. The keynote is Christopher Frayling and speakers include some of the world’s leading experts on Angela Carter from around the world, including Australia, USA, Japan and Europe.
We are inviting filmmakers to create up to 90-second film or moving image works inspired by any aspect of Angela Carter’s work which will be shown during the symposium.
