Here’s a special opportunity to see some of the best examples of the rich, innovative, and beautiful worlds of animation that lie beyond the realm of “cartoons.”
The parallel strains of commercial and experimental animation have always had a Cain and Abel relationship: often contentious, occasionally deadly, but always interdependent and keenly aware of what the other is doing. Although they may work of the margins of the industry, experimental animators often have access to images, ideas, and techniques unavailable to those in the commercial animation mainstream.
Works shown include examples of abstract, drawn-on-film, cutout collage, pinscreen, stop motion, computer graphics, and other unclassifiable animation styles. Featured Animators range from renowned pioneers (Norman McLaren, Len Lye, Harry Smith) to the most acclaimed figures working today (Robert Breer, Lewis Klahr) to radical new voices (Don Hertzfeldt, Martha Colburn, Chris Landreth).
