The opening reception will be held Wednesday, November 30 from 7 to 10pm, and the exhibition will remain on view through December 23, 2011.
December 1 through 6 the Cinefamily, along with co-presenters Cartoon Brew and Animation Block Party, is inaugurating Animation Breakdown, their new, recurring home for original and groundbreaking animation, with a five-day festival celebrating the greatest in mind-expanding international animated works, old and new, shorts and features. The show at Synchronicity kicks off this festival by hosting an exhibition showing work from artists whose originality and breadth of vision encapsulate the scope of the new brand’s mission to bring exciting and widely divergent animated art to audiences. This exhibition is co-curated with Alex McDonald, head programmer of Animation Breakdown, to reflect an ideal range of the types of boldly unique artists that the program has dedicated itself to showcasing. This amazing group of artists are coming together to show their work that expands beyond the screen. Some pieces you will recognize as derived from their moving images and some will showcase the artists’ alternate side to their animation work.
