Gillian McIver

Film-maker, Curator, Writer, Lecturer / academic

film maker - video artist - writer | I am trained as film-maker, with a background as a cultural historian. I am particularly interested in work that looks at ideas surrounding place, locality, transcultural experience, and which interrogates received notions of culture and social constructs. | Since 2002 I have been involved in critical writing about a variety of art related subjects. | I produce the critical website SiteSpecificArt.org.uk | In 2011 Nazir Tanbouli and I set up Studio75, a radical artist-run centre in Dalston, East London.and organised the massive site-specific project The King's Land. | The documentary film TAKING OVER THE KING'S LAND, about the project, is out now. http://www.kingslandmural.co.uk | I am currently writing a book about the relationship of cinema and visual art. read full statement
