LUX and Catalyst Arts present Looking Aside, a screening programme curated by Catalyst Arts and Seamus Harahan on the occasion of his BL CK B X exhibition: shiney wet stones.

The programme of works have been chosen for their inventive image-making and action-making, creating transformative pathways through a marked sense of attention and generosity towards their material – a description not unlike Seamus’ work itself.  The work has been selected from a varied pool of emerging practitioners connected to Catalyst, Seamus and Belfast. With work by Jamie BuckleyAideen DoranKathryn ElkinLaura McMorrow and Kate Murphy.
