On occasion of the Glasgow Film Festival, for the first time, GoMA presents a cycle of three award-winning contemporary art films from art collector Hugo Brown.

Plot Point (2007) by Nicola Provost uses hidden-camera footage of everyday life around Times Square in New York. Cyprien Gaillard’s Pruitt-Igoe Falls (2009) associates the 2008 demolition of the Sighthill tower block in Glasgow with the destruction of the Pruitt-Igoe housing project in St Louis, Missouri, in 1972. Lucia, Luis and the Wolf (2007/8) is a two-part stop-motion animation from Chile.

Artists: Nicolas Provost, Cyprien Gaillard, Joaquín Cociña, Cristóbal León, Niles Atallah
