ONE-OFF SCREENING INCLUDING Q AND A WITH DAVID BROOKS: JUNE 2O15…
David Brooks took on a very big challenge in writing a film which dealt with the Industrial disaster at the Union Carbide India Limited pesticide plant in Bhopal, India. A gas leak caused the deaths of an estimated 16,000 people. Over 500,000 people were exposed to methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas and other chemicals.
The ensuing paper trail of civil and criminal cases has made documenting the subject a near impossibility. David has only screened the film once in the UK and it has not had a general theatre release. He has however, screened it in Bhopal where, he says, to his in-describable satisfaction, it received an excellent reception…
Look out for further details of this event which will take place during the month of June. Dates TBC..
Politics is hot on the streets in Yarmouth. Mr Milliband came to the town recently to announce his policies and 133 is not shying away from the fray!
Brian Adcock and Iain Green, both professional political satirists and native to Yarmouth and Norwich (Iain now lives in Scotland where he has worked on the Scotsman and Scottish Independent) will be exhibiting latest their offerings.
Prints will also be for sale via the website.
The Great Yarmouth College Art and Design (level 2) exhibition ‘Space’ (9th – 14th March) was a great success for all concerned. There has been talk of holding the end of year show at 133 from the students and staff and we hope this can become a regular feature in 133’s calendar. Most impressive was the level of professionalism and collaborative effort put in by all. Watch this space also for details of one or two commissions which have sprung up from this excellent exhibition. Teamwork at its best and a real pleasure to behold…
These ladies by Peter Chapman have been causing much interest! Peter is, though he doesn’t broadcast it, the uncle of Jake and Dinos Chapman. AKA The Chapman Brothers. An interesting family and a great connection for Yarmouth.
One of the biggest pleasures has been to see the shrieks of absolute joy from children passing by who find them hilarious (probably as they are so UNSUITABLE!).
Essentially, they are ‘Grotesques’ – to apply an art term – referencing body art and piercing and exuding absolute confidence in there own utter gorgeousness. At the very least, we think these girls are emancipated!
They are also some of the most socially networked people in Yarmouth (please share to Gallery133 Facebook page and give proper credit to the artist if you are sharing – thanks). The Chapman Sisters will be on show until March 3rd if you want to come say hello…
