Kenneth Anger at Sprueth Magers
Astarte (Anaïs Nin) - Kenneth Anger

Astarte (Anaïs Nin) - Kenneth Anger

Dates: 19th February – 27th March | Location: Sprueth Magers, London

Sprüth Magers London is exhibiting ‘Invocation of My Demon Brother’, the work by the legendary filmmaker and artist Kenneth Anger, in his first solo show in London for five years. Making films continuously since the late 1940s and considered a countercultural icon, Kenneth Anger is widely acclaimed as a pioneering and influential force in avant-garde cinema. His groundbreaking body of work has inspired cineastes, filmmakers and artists alike. Many channels of contemporary visual culture, from queer iconography to MTV, similarly owe a debt to his art.

The exhibition will feature his seminal 1969 film Invocation of My Demon Brother. This work, a hypnotic montage of jarringly edited images, shifting intense colours and symbols with a repetitive synthesised soundtrack by Mick Jagger, is typical of Anger’s sinister and subversive aesthetic. There is also an opportunity to purchase signed film stills.

Entry is free. For further information, visit Sprueth Magers
