Experience the SPACE FILM (1970) re-staged in its original location. Capturing the mood of the ‘60s, featuring artists Bridget Riley, Peter Sedgley, Henry Moore and the artist community who set up SPACE at the iconic St. Katharine Dock site in 1968. A hotbed of creativity, a site of experimentation drawing international attention, with seminal happenings, sometimes called the original YBA. The film documents how artists created a new vision among abandoned warehouses, founding an organization that continues to champion artists’ role in the city 50 years on.
Accompanied by new text from Peter Sedgley.
A SPACE project supported by St. Katharine Docks
