Lis Rhodes: Dissident Lines at Nottingham Contemporary, 25 May to 1 September 2019. Lis Rhodes is a pioneer of experimental filmmaking and a major figure in the history of artists working with film in Britain. Enabled by the Freelands Award 2017, Dissident Lines is Rhodes’ first-ever survey, and will span almost 50 years of work. This is the first time that Nottingham Contemporary has ever dedicated all of its galleries to a retrospective. The exhibition will span Rhodes’ entire career, from iconic pieces such as Dresden Dynamo (1971) and Light Music (1975-77) to a specially commissioned new work.
