Full text not available from this repository.


This output, a group exhibition, was curated by David Curtis, as an Illuminations production for Tate Britain (the project was supported by the AHRC Centre for British Film & Television Studies, University of the Arts, London and the British Film Institute). Dye was selected in recognition of his role as an experimental user of film in Britain during the 1970s. In the past decade, Dye’s work in this area has attracted renewed curatorial attention. ‘A Century of Artists’ Film in Britain’ places Dye’s work in the context of an ambitious survey of work by 130 artists, which aims to reveal the full range, variety and originality of this history, from films made in the 1890s, to work realised at the start of the twenty-first century. Dye has used the reconstruction of early media works to develop a series of masters and doctoral level workshops that provide new contexts for visual arts research. The emphasis is on the contrasting situation for experimental media in the 70s and the age of digital technology. Dye’s current research involves a reconsideration of the notion of early- and late-career works, particularly in relation to new forms of gallery viewing. Dye’s media arts experience provided supervisory support for a doctoral project by Macmorran entitled: ‘Interactive and Digital Installation Works: new modes of reception and expression’ (completed 2007). Dye’s work in a Century of Artists’ Film in Britain was included in the British Artists Film and Video Study Collection at University of the Arts, London (Central St Martins College of Art). The same work was also included in On General Release (2002), a series of screenings at Norwich Gallery, John Hansard Gallery, George Rodger Gallery (Kent Institute of Art and Design). This tour was funded by Arts Council England.
