Since 2012, Agnès Varda Award has intended to encourage trans-boundary creations while being committed to bringing film creation back to its authentic state, and impelling the experimental spirit into the mainstream culture.
The Prize recognises and supports artists working with moving image and celebrates the spirit of experimentation, imagination and innovation in the work of UK-based artist filmmakers. The Jarman Award was launched in 2008, inspired by the visionary British filmmaker Derek Jarman (1942-1994).
The exhibition includes a two-hour film, five monumental sculptures, more than fifty engravings and electroplated copper plates, and an artist-conceived catalogue. The exhibition was on view at the Yale University Art Gallery from March 1 through June 16, 2019.

Also this exhibition will for the first time in Asia present Yang Fudong’s site specific film installation for the SALT ART titled “The Light That I Feel” in the summer of 2014. The film was created during the summer at Sandhornøy together with local actors and dancers.
The exhibition features two bodies of work in which Warhol redefined portraiture: the silent film portraits from the 1960s that he collectively called the Screen Tests, and his portraits of himself and others that he shot on Polaroid film throughout the 1970s and ‘80s.
“Image Script” is the initial feeling of Mang Mang’s works from the curator Jiang Xuetao. After a decade of theatrical performance, Mang Mang had been the protagonist herself of all her works during 2009 to 2014. She acted as different “roles” and finished the special image creation.
