Which Hitch?

As part of ARTIST ROOMS: Johan Grimonprez Caithness Horizons Museum will be hosting a film night featuring a double bill of Alfred Hitchcock classics. To be honest, there are too many good ones to choose from. You can help us by suggesting your favourite Hitchcock film that you would like to see on the big screen in our AV room. Refreshments will be provided.

Let us know which Hitch you would like to see via e-mail: info@caithnesshorizons.co.uk or drop us a line on our social media. 

About the artist

Johan Grimonprez (b. 1962) is interested in ideas of identity in filmmaking, blending documentary and fictional accounts of events. He first came to prominence in 1997 when his complex montage of archival news broadcasts, movie clips and amateur film footage dial H-I-S-T-0-R-Y (which is also part of the ARTIST ROOMS collection) took the art world by storm.

About ARTIST ROOMS

The ARTIST ROOMS collection is shared with museums and galleries across the UK. 40 million people have visited ARTIST ROOMS exhibitions and 600,000 young people have taken part in creative learning projects in their hometowns.

The collection is jointly owned by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate and was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008 with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Governments. The current programme of ARTIST ROOMS across the UK is a partnership until spring 2019 with Ferens Art Gallery, supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council, Art Fund and the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.

This is the second time Caithness Horizons has shown work from the ARTIST ROOMS collection and also the second time that Alfred Hitchcock’s presence has been felt at the museum following the 2014 ARTIST ROOMS: Douglas Gordon exhibition, which explored similar themes.
