Save event

As an artist film-maker, Le Grice places the central focus on the material properties and effects of technologies themselves, placing the role of the audience to the foreground. Dr Kayla Parker, Lecturer in Media Arts and convener of the Moving Image Arts (MIA) research group at Plymouth University, explores the legacy of Le Grice’s dynamic practice, which continually transforms itself as he reworks the past to reimagine possible futures.

'Voices' Season - Original Voices

Peninsula Arts looks to support new and undiscovered cultural voices, as well as bringing those internationally renowned voices to the region and this is explored in this season’s programme.

Born in Plymouth, Malcolm Le Grice pioneered new ways of presenting moving image as multi-screen projection and installation in the 1960s. He is recognised as being one of Britain’s most innovative and experimental film-makers.
