Angela Ricci Lucchi (1942–2018)

Next Wednesday Italian artist Yervant Gianikian returns to Tate Modern to present the UK premiere of Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi: Angela's Diaries.

This touching film explores the diaries of his wife and artistic collaborator Angela Ricci Lucchi, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Frieze describes: 'Drawing, sketching, diary-keeping of every day of work or travel – in the USA, Sarajevo, Vienna, Turkey, Armenia, Jerusalem, Paris, Moscow, and many others places – reading piles of books and studying the context of the material they unearthed was Angela’s role, although it's impossible to establish borders within Gianikian and Ricci Lucchi’s practice. As their friend, the film critic Morando Morandini, wrote: "They do everything together, with two pairs of hands – from the conception of the project to the selection of materials, from mise-en-scène to editing, from music to post-synchronization. Those who know them well might hazard a conjecture or hypothesis. Between the two, Yervant is East and Angela is West. He is Platonic, she is Aristotelian. He is the eye, she is the ear."'

Remembering the avant-garde filmmaker whose work, with her partner Yervant Gianikian, demonstrated an active and precious form of resistance

This series marks the first museum gathering of a cloud of artist-filmmakers whose works have shifted the field of artists’ cinema over the last decade. Its programme of screenings and discussions explores both the films themselves; the various ways the artists' practices intertwine; the exhibition contexts of the film festival, biennial and museum; as well as the institutions, programmers and writers who have helped cultivate various forms of dialogue and exchange amongst these artists and their peers.

We hope to see you then!
