Ed Webb-Ingall is a writer and filmmaker.
I recently completed a practice-based PhD at Royal Holloway University, where I carried out the first in-depth study of the history and practice of community video in the UK. I currently run the public programme for the London Community Video Archive, at Goldsmiths College, University of London. My research and film practice have resulted in opportunities to present, exhibit and publish my work nationally and internationally. In 2012, I spent a year working on Move:Together a film and dance project at South London Gallery. In 2013, at the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival I presented the video project ReFramed Youth, this same year, I co-edited Derek Jarman’s Sketchbooks (Thames & Hudson). In 2014, on a British Council Residency in LA, I made a new video project with Echo Park Film Centre. In 2015, I was LUX writer in residence and exhibited the People Make Videos project at The Showroom Gallery. In 2016, I co-curated the Artist Moving Image Festival, Tramway, Glasgow, published an article for the Liverpool Biennial journal and began a new commission for Studio Voltaire, London. In 2017, I published an article on early video art in the UK for MIRAJ and a chapter on 1970s Community Video in Other Cinemas: Politics, Culture and Experimental Film in the 1970s (IB Tauris), edited by Laura Mulvey and Sue Clayton. In 2017/2018 I presented iterations of my video project about Section 28, We Have Rather Been Invaded, at Ryerson, Toronto and Common Guild, Glasgow as well as part of a national touring program called Staying Out:2018, funded by the Arts Council. I have been commissioned by Invisible Dust to make a film with Scottish island communities, touring 10 Scottish venues in the highlands and Islands, including DCA, Dundee, throughout 2018/19. In 2018, I have co-programmed a series of screenings at the ICA pairing videos by contemporary artists with archival films. I have also had an exhibition at Focal Point Gallery, which was reveiwed for Frieze. In autumn 2018, I will return to South London Gallery to carry out a new commission called The Archive is Political.
