Chris MarkerVisionary French filmmaker, photographer, writer and artist Chris Marker (1921-2012) is widely acknowledged as the finest exponent of the essay film. He is best known as the director of over 50 films including Sans soleil (Sunless, 1983), A Grin Without a Cat (1977) and for his most influential work La Jetee (The Pier, 1962), imagining a Paris devastated by nuclear catastrophe and composed almost entirely of black-and-white still photographs, which later informed the narrative of Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys (1995). He was a prescient multi-media maker, exploring the future through both digital art and via his numerous online avatars. This exhibition looks at Marker's prolific career and considers his influence on contemporary British art and artists. Organised in collaboration with Chris Darke and the Centre Pompidou.

 

About Whitechapel Gallery

Designed in a distinctive Arts and Crafts architecture style by Charles Harrison Townsend, the Whitechapel, Britain's first purpose-built arts gallery, is renowned both for the beauty of its light, airy space and for embracing the local community in its work. Founded in 1901, extensive refurbishment saw the gallery, reopened in April 2009, double in size. More about Whitechapel Gallery
