Project Description

To celebrate the completion of the British Council Film Collection, an exhibition exploring the Collection ran at the British Council’s London headquarters off Trafalgar Square from 4 August – 24 September 2014.

TIME/IMAGE curated and installed the exhibition—View From Here—within a tight timeframe. We planned the exhibition, provided the written content and visual media, produced printed and digital display materials (including archive document facsimiles and ebooks), installed lighting and audio, and set up audio-visual displays along with interactive exhibits.

Our Lead Consultant, Sarah, who is knowledgable regarding the Collection, also ran weekly tours for the general public.

A competition was run conjunction with this exhibition, inviting the public and schoolchildren to remix and reuse the freely-available archive footage. TIME/IMAGE implemented the online submission system for this competition and provided a video guide for competitors.
