Open Factory - 18 December

The month-long occupation of the Farringdon Factory culminates in a one day event on 18 December from 
13:00 - midnight. For information on times of screenings and events click here.

To an outsider 20 Farringdon Street appears to be out-of-service. An unregulated and unlit building whose surfaces have lost their gleam; an out-of-date monument to the not-so-distant past. Situated in the City of London, the surrounding architecture is permanently illuminated as the bulk of multinational corporations forms the backdrop to the labours of a workforce that operates into the night. 20 Farringdon Street is a seven-story building that has been stripped back to its skeletal structure. It is a hermetically sealed space formed of a series of cavernous L-shaped rooms which each encompass an entire floor of the building. 

Between the 25 November and 18 December, this empty space operates as the Farringdon Factory; an open studio complex for live events, screenings and installations, performances and talks. 

The Factory Cinema is located on the ground floor and will host a programme of short films made by both resident and invited artist/filmmakers. This curated programme will seek to connect the studio practice upstairs with both visitors and the pedestrians on the street, locating the building itself as a unique site for observation and discussion.

The Factory builds upon research by artists Natasha Cox and Keira Greene, whose collaborative practice engages with the construction of the photographic image and the mechanisms of cinema.

Resident artists include:
Max Atkins, Cilla Berg, Verity Birt, Lucy Clarke, Alex Culshaw, Amy Dickson, Hazel Dowling, Kate Elliott, Stephen Emerson, Sara Hibbert, Elizabeth Homersham, Emily Iremonger, Rebecca James, Benji Jeffrey, Ann-Marie LeQuesne, Genevieve Lutkin, Girolamo Marri, Bella Marrin, Ella McCartney, Emma McGarry, Isobel Mei, Justine Melford-Colegate, Jenny Berger Myhre, Karolina Magnusson Murray, Mette Boel Olesen, Karolina Raczynski, Annette Robinson, Jack Strange, Will Ward, Bea Wilson.
