Jeff Keen is the one the great figures of the British avant-garde. Through his long career as a film-maker, his work has revealed a wild spirit of anarchic play and a fascination with surrealism and popular culture. A year-long exploration of the Brighton-based film-maker will take place in the city in 2011/12. To launch the project, a day of presentations, screenings and discussion on Keen’s work and its curation led by Frank Gray (Cinecity and Screen Archive South East) with Stella Starr (Jeff Keen’s daughter), William Fowler (Curator, Artists’ Moving Image, BFI) and curators Jenny Lund and Suzie Plumb of Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
