This continued series seeks to provide focus for the work of emerging artist filmmakers with the provision of a platform for the daily screening of moving image in the public realm.‘EYECATCHER’ refers to the motif of the Big Screen as a feature that commands or enhances our attention as we enter Elmer Square. As a permanent outdoor video screen curated by Focal Point Gallery, each series is chosen to reflect the current concerns of the gallery programme.

More information on the programme can be found here.

Upon the successive screening of four ‘EYECATCHER’ series, each participating artist will be considered for a new Big Screen commission in 2018/19, with the opportunity to further develop their practice.

The programme will launch on Saturday 20 January from 6.00 to 8.00pm alongside the launch of 'Other Voices, Other Rooms', Paul Anthony Harford, and 'Caprona', Alexandra Leykauf, at Focal Point Gallery. All welcome.
