SPECIAL FILM STUDY GROUP SCREENING : BAD TIMING (1980)
Nov 19, 2014 7:00pm - 9:45pm
The film was directed by Nicolas Roeg and is set amid the decaying elegance of cold-war Vienna. It sees psychoanalyst Dr. Alex Linden (Art Garfunkel) become mired in an erotically charged affair with the elusive Milena Flaherty (Theresa Russell). When their all-consuming passion takes a life-threatening turn, Inspector Netusil (Harvey Keitel) is assigned to piece together the sordid details.
The film has been selected and will be introduced by David Austen, artist and co-curator of The Nakeds, Drawing Room's current exhibition. He will discuss the reasoning behind his selection and how he sees the film relate to themes and works in The Nakeds.

DANIEL GUZMÁN : CHROMOSOME DAMAGE
Dec 13, 2014 - Feb 21, 2015
An exhibition of 30 drawings by Daniel Guzmán, his first solo exhibition in a public gallery in the UK. Guzmán’s oeuvre is steeped in the context of Mexican and pre-Hispanic imagery. This new series reference the imagery and iconography of Aztec deities, goddesses and earth mothers. Each drawing represents a single voluptuous female figure baring teeth and pop out eyes, who goes through mystic and troubling transformations, growing extended limbs, multiple breasts and hands; feet become tree trunks and snakes coil round them.
Guzmán (b.1964) was born in Mexico City where he lives and works. He has exhibited internationally, with recent solo exhibitions at Museo de Arte de Zapopan, Mexico, Museo de Arte Contempor.neo de Oaxaca Mexico and New Museum, New York.
