Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016

With a title referring to the sci-fi writer H.P. Lovecraft, this immersive display looks at how artists have challenged the conventions of cinema. Moving-image techniques – from hand-painted film to digital technologies – are considered in works by artists as varied as Joseph Cornell, Ian Cheng and Lynn Hershman Leeson. Find out more.
