British artist and living legend Andrew Logan, loved the world over by celebrities and misfits alike, takes us under his glittering wing and inside his outrageous, anarchic and spectacular costume pageant: The Alternative Miss World. As the Show's master of ceremonies and ringmaster, Logan is the high priest of an esteemed congregation. He describes the Show as his most important artwork; a fabulous living sculpture that spans forty years of arts and culture.
Combining observational footage, extensive archive material and exuberant animation, Jes Benstock’s fittingly outrageous documentary charts the mounting of the 2009 Show, interwoven with its history, the rise, fall and rediscovery, of both the event and the artist at its centre.
Join us in person at Bonington Lecture Theatre for the screening or watch from home via our online stream.
This free event accompanies Bonington Gallery's current exhibition Andrew Logan: The Joy of Sculpture, which runs until 11 December 2021.
