(online programming in partnership with the lexi cinema, kensal rise)

In these troubling times we need to unite and support each other, which is how we came to create Visual Tonic- a selected series of video art that Cole Projects is curating in partnership with Lexi Cinema in Kensal Rise. The goal of this initiative is “keep the lights on” at the Lexi - an indie cinema staffed by volunteers, who run loads of great community projects and have been forced to close their doors.
We have been busy sourcing some really exciting video art- some familiar, some yet to be discovered. The selected works will be included in the Lexi's e-newsletter and on the cinema website, alongside the free-to-view "Virtual Lexi" programme being put together by the cinema team. If you believe you have the cure (or a mindblowing video piece) that you want to put forward, please drop the link in an email and we will look into it. We are always on the hunt.
