Guadian recommends the Watch Me Move: The Animation Show at the Barbican Art Gallery, London, until 11th September 2011. It looks good, will definitely go if I get the chance.
Animation, when you think about it, is a very strange art. The invention of cinema in the late 19th century made it possible to show apparently moving, lifelike photographs of real people. But it was also used from the very beginning, as Watch Me Move – a summer exhibition of animated films and art at London’s Barbican – reveals, to make drawings and models come to life.
