Johnny Marr narrated video wins Hayward Gallery’s Ed Ruscha Film Challenge

To celebrate our current exhibition, Ed Ruscha: Fifty Years of Painting, Hayward Gallery held an open competition challenging film-makers to produce the best 30-second video about the exhibition, conveying the spirit and look of the artist’s ground-breaking work.

We are delighted to announce that Fiona Skinner’s film, featuring words and music from former Smiths’ guitarist Johnny Marr, is the winner of the Ed Ruscha Film Challenge, judged by artists Louise Wilson and Jeremy Deller alongside Hayward Gallery Director Ralph Rugoff. Along with top prizes of a Canon HDV Camcorder and a handy pocket-sized Flip Ultra camcorder, the winning entry will also be shown at Hayward Gallery.

Watch the winning video embedded below and see the best of the runners up at the exhibition microsite.
