Can Art Stop a Bullet: William Kelly’s Big Picture

— Thursday 30th July 2020

Exhibition Announcement and Film Screening

Later this year the gallery will present an exhibition of works by William Kelly, many of which will relate to those seen in the 2019 documentary "Can Art Stop a Bullet: William Kelly's Big Picture"

We'd like to share with you the opportunity to watch the film online.

Directed by Mark Street and produced by Fiona Cochrane, the feature length documentary was filmed across five continents and features interviews with artists, activists, philosophers and writers including Martin Sheen, A.C. Grayling, Ian McLean and Sasha Grishin.  It tells the story behind many of the works in the artist's 2016 commission for the State Library of Victoria - a 3-storey-high banner exhibited in the LaTrobe Reading Room - and, in doing so, reveals the artist’s long career in art and activism. 

The film will be live streamed at 5pm on Thursday 30th July at 5pm AEST, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers at approximately 6:30pm.
Access to the live stream costs USD$7.99
