News Ghibli To Be Represented in Barbican Animation Exhibition
Studio Ghibli will be among the studios represented in a forthcoming animation exhibition at London's Barbican Centre. Entitled Watch Me Move: The Animation Show, the event will run from June 15 to September 11.
From the Barbican site:
WATCH ME MOVE is the most extensive exhibition ever mounted to present the full range of animated imagery produced in the last 150 years. Bringing together industry pioneers, independent film-makers and artists, the exhibition will feature iconic clips alongside lesser-known masterpieces which together demonstrate the full intellectual and emotive power of the medium. Taking the viewer behind the dream-world of the finished film, the exhibition also includes puppets, stage sets, background paintings, wire-frame visualisations, cel and background images. Large-scale installations will bring the world of animation into the physical space of the viewer.
Artists, film-makers and studios whose work is represented include: Aardman, Walt Disney, Studio Ghibli, Fleischer Studios, Eadward Muybridge, Lumière Brothers, Stan Brakhage, Len Lye, Francis Alys, William Kentridge, Christian Boltanski and Kara Walker.
