Screenings

In collaboration with Gallery Alma Zevi, the Teatrino presents on Thursday 31 May a talk with artist John Smith and, on Friday 1 June, the screening of a selection of his works created between 1972 and 2015.
John Smith's complex work draws on both Conceptual Art and Structural Film. These influences collide with his profound interest in narrative and the spoken word.
