Part 1: Edgelands
Wednesday 21 October, 7.00 - 9.00pm
Venue: Camden Arts Centre, Arkwright Road, London, NW3 6DG

Camden Arts Centre and LUX present a three-part screening programme which expands on Ben Rivers’ exhibition Earth Needs More Magicians and his artist-curated exhibition Edgelands

The first part of this series takes Edgelands as its starting point, looking at Rivers’ interest in the borders of society, both physical spaces – neglected peripheries of the city and abstractly, where individuals have withdrawn from mainstream culture.
