On Thursday 5th May at Squires Cinema, Northumbria University, The Women Artists of The North East Library presents an evening of short video works from pioneering video artist, Tamara Krikorian. 

Krikorian, who actually lectured at Northumbria when it was the former Polytechnic in the seventies, was a co-founder of London Video Arts and, as well as being involved in a number of high profile exhibitions, organised the first video art conference in Britain  – Video: Towards Defining an Aesthetic at the Third Eye Centre, Glasgow in 1976.

During the Women Artists of North East Library’s residency at Northumbria University, Holly  Argent has been researching the work, context and influence of Tamara Krikorian. The event will bring together Krikorian’s work alongside fellow lecturer Stuart Marshall and other regional and national contemporaries who were preoccupied with the medium of television and  questioned the power of mass media.  

Doors are at 5:30pm (films shown 6-8pm) and entry is free, although booking is required.
