Tuesday 11 June – Contact Gallery: The Drawing Show – A film by Mike Toll

Mike Toll, former member and a Chairman of Norwich 20 Group, sadly died last year, but he left boxes full of VHS video tapes that record his interviews with artists who took part in solo and group exhibitions at the Contact Gallery, Norwich in the mid 1980-90’s.

Norfolk Contemporary Art Society and Norwich 20 Group plan to transfer these videos to a more usable DVD format. One of the films, Contact Gallery: The Drawing Show is to be shown at a joint event. Thirty years on, this is a chance to relive this Norwich exhibition which includes interviews with many of the artists who took part, some of whom are attending the showing and will take part in a short discussion afterwards.

The film is 73 minutes long, and contains interviews with many of the artists who took part in the exhibition, including Brüer Tidman, Zheni Warner, Emrys Parry, Peter Baldwin, David Woods, Ivy Smith and Mike Chapman.
