Carnival, Jazz, Rave & Kinks is the North American premiere of four film works by UK artist and filmmaker Dick Jewell. The selection of films reflects the artist’s personal interest in people and movement with a focus on music, dance and club culture. Hundreds of hours of Super 8 and video footage shot in iconic London venues histories a culture of ever-changing motion. Street parties, techno raves, jazz dancers, drag balls and cabaret club scenes intimately converge in the presentation of Notting Hill Carnival 83-86 (1986), The Jazz Room(1987), Rave + Breaks (1992) and Kinky Gerlinky (2002). The opening reception for Carnival, Jazz, Rave & Kinks will feature a performance by DJ Juan Love (John Cardiel).
