Alex Prager in Conversation & The Night of the Hunter
18:30 at The Regent Street Cinema, 309 Regent St, London W1B 2UW
Alex Prager’s distinctive works cross the worlds of art, fashion, photography and film, exposing the human melodrama and dark unsettling undercurrents that are threaded through her subject matter. Referencing the aesthetic principals of mid twentieth century Hollywood cinema and fashion photography, as well as such photographers as William Eggleston, Diane Arbus and Cindy Sherman, each of her images is packed with a multitude of emotional layers and narrative possibilities.
For this talk, given on the occasion of her exhibition Silver Lake Drive, Prager is joined in conversation with photographer, critic and art historian Lucy Soutter. Taking place at The Regent Street Cinema it is followed by a screening of Charles Laughton’s 1955 American masterpiece The Night of the Hunter, selected by Alex Prager. Part expressionist horror movie, part luminous fairytale, The Night of the Hunter contains some of the most haunting images in cinema.
