Hands On: The Illusion of Movement
March 8, 2014
6 – 8 PM
New York City gallery Pocket Utopia is pleased to present an evening of animated short films by 13 contemporary artists from around the world curated by Bara Jichova.
Featuring works by: Susan Allbert, Martha Colburn, Erin Dunn, Dustin Grella, Amy Jenkins, Kirsten Lepore, Paulius Nosokas, Allison Schulnik, Jeffrey Scher, Pavel Švec, Matěj Smetana, Richard Tuohy and Theodore Ushev.
All of these shorts celebrate both traditional animation and hands-on filmmaking. The techniques vary, ranging from hand-drawn, claymation, stop motion and cutout animation to cel animation process and rotoscoping technique.
Rather than having a traditional narrative structure, these films challenge audiences to find broader and more creative interpretations.
