Film Screening + Director Q&A: The Colour of Dreams at Leeds Art Gallery, Leeds 5 February 2022 Entrance is free — Visit now

Programmed to coincide with the exhibition Eileen Agar: Angel of Anarchy (29 January – 7 May) and supported by Leeds Art Fund, Leeds Art Gallery present a free, special screening of BAFTA award winning, Emmy-nominated writer-director Susanna White’s The Colour of Dreams this February.

White, who has worked in British television, as well as on US dramas such as BillionsThe Deuce and Boardwalk Empire, will be in attendance to answer questions following the screening of her new short film, made with British-Argentinian artist Eileen Agar in her final years.

The Colour of Dreams promises fascinating insight into Agar’s working life, watching as she recounts her life story, from her struggles to be accepted as an artist rather than a muse, to her place as a leading figure in the British Surrealist movement, who brought her ‘colour of dreams’ to everything she saw.

Presented alongside the gallery’s exhibition, the film provides added context to the work on display, and allows audiences a direct link to the avant-garde pioneer.
