City Projects commissions and produces Artists’ Moving Image projects with artists which respond critically to their social and political context. We provide a supportive space for artists and work with them from the early stages of a project, to develop a proposal, raise funds and to produce the work. We are currently working with Lucy Parker on the film Blacklist, looking at blacklisting in the construction industry, and on a research project with Dan Ward critically examining the current conditions for production of Artists’ Moving Image.

Recent projects include The Empty Plan by Anja Kirschner & David Panos, which looks at theory and practice in the work of Bertolt Brecht; Tenant by Grace Schwindt, which examines modes of interpretation through carefully choreographed movement studies; and Fulll Firearms by Emily Wardill, a melodrama based on the story of Sarah Winchester, which touches on themes of displacement and storytelling.

Projects have been made in partnership with Film London, Serpentine Gallery, Collective Gallery (Edinburgh), Badischer Kunstverein (Karlsruhe, Germany), Filmhuset (Norway); Focal Point Gallery (Southend); Staatsgalerie (Stuttgart), Kunsthall Oslo and MuHKA (Antwerp) and shown widely at major galleries and museums. The organisation aims to remain small and independent, working with partners on a project-by-project basis.

City Projects was formed in 2003, and is run by a management committee of Fani Arampatzidou, Laura Gannon, Kate Parker, Jenny Richards and Louise Shelley.
