Billingham's early video piece 'Tony Smoking Backwards', 4min, 1999 was exhibited in the group show - 'Moving Portraits', De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea, 2011 curated by Jane Won in association with David Curtis at the British Artists’ Film and Video Study Collection. David Curtis wrote 'A History of Artists’ Film and Video in Britain 1897-2004' (BFI Publising) and curated A Century of Artists’ Film in Britain at Tate Britain in 2003. The 'Moving Portraits exhibition explored the past 60 years of portraits in moving image by significant international artists practising in the field of film and video technology. By using this technology, artists have expanded the language and notion of the portrait genre. The works in this exhibition were all experimental of their time and included well-known sitters and subjects as well as more personal portraits of friends and family. Besides Billingham, the other artists in the show were Jordan Baseman, Candice Breitz, Duncan Campbell, Willie Doherty, Tracey Emin, Carl Freeman, Gilbert & George, Peter Gidal, Robert Mapplethorpe, Rebecca Marshall, Stuart Marshall, Julian Opie, Sarah Pucill, Marty St James and Anne Wilson, Georgina Starr, Guy Sherwin, Margaret Tait, Fiona Tan, Gillian Wearing, Andy Warhol, William Wegman and Sam Taylor-Wood.
