Film Screening - The Leopard

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic Lecture/ Debate/Seminar

18/04/2012

This Burt Lancaster classic tells the story of The Prince of Salina (the Leopard), a noble aristocrat of impeccable integrity, who tries to preserve his family and class amid the tumultuous social upheavals of 1860's Sicily. The film will be screened amidst an exhibition by artist Ken Currie. Curie’s A Gate, A Door and A Window will be exhibited in Bradford for the first time. These three large paintings form the starting point of a wider series titled Immortality. Currie’s enigmatic paintings use a distinct language to convey their own vision of the world, a vision of power, darkness and immortality. Artist Pip Dickens will give an introduction to The Leopard, highlighting the strong influence The Leopard has had on Ken Currie’s work and the links between his paintings.
