Gasworks introduces Nights In, a series of silent, moving image presentations. This first instalment of three one-night-only exhibitions presents work by artists selected from open submission. At a time when broadcast-quality, stereo blasting, DVD producing, video technology reaches the high street at accessible prices, artists continue to make silent films. This selection of works for Nights In will highlight the economic use of the medium by artists who, in making uncomplicated films, eschew any unnecessary use of sound.
