Prime Time – Grundy Art Gallery, UK, 01 April – 03 June 2017
Prime Time is the title of both a new film commission and the first major solo exhibition in a public gallery by the artist Rob Crosse. His latest film Prime Time (2017) will be shown for the first time in the exhibition and has been commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella (FVU) with Grundy Art Gallery. Alongside the presentation of his work, Crosse has selected works from the Grundy’s collection to display in an adjoining room. This ias intended to act as a prelude to his work and to draw out threads from the films that relate to themes and concerns found within the gallery’s collection, and vice-versa. The exhibition coincides with the fiftieth anniversary of the de-criminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales and celebrates the LGBTQ community who live in, work and visit the resort of Blackpool.
