One of cinema's most compelling and innovative directors, David Lynch remains a major influence on contemporary art, film and culture. In this landmark event, Tate Modern brings together leading artists, academics and writers from around the world to offer a series of new perspectives on Lynch's films.
Artists and theorists will discuss Lynch's work in a range of theoretical and artistic contexts, including psychoanalysis, philosophy, prosthetics and photography. Speakers will include the composer Angelo Badalamenti, who has collaborated with Lynch on films such as Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, as well as the visual artists Gregory Crewdson, Daria Martin, and Jane and Louise Wilson. There will be contributions from the writers and academics Parveen Adams, Sarah Churchwell, Simon Critchley, Roger Luckhurst, Tom McCarthy, and Jamieson Webster. A specially commissioned video interview with Lynch himself will also be screened, and an accompanying film programme will take place at Tate Modern and the Birkbeck Cinema.
There will be a screening of Blue Velvet, with an introduction by Angelo Badalamenti on Friday 30 October at 18:30 and a screening of Inland Empire on Sunday at 14:00. Tickets can be booked for the symposium and the screenings at a special combined price of £30 (£19 concessions). Please call 020 7887 8888 to book (not available online).
