Animation Breakdown: Study Day at Tate Modern

Starr Auditorium, Tate Modern
Bankside, London, SE1

£15.00, £10.00 concessions, booking recommended

'Animation is above all the art of the in-between, of the interval, of the beholder, of the mental movement, the stream of consciousness, the free flow of associations. It is the art of reading between the lines. It is not about the art that is on the image, but about the art that emerges between the images.'
Edwin Carels in The Animate Book

A day of films, presentations and discussion on artists’ animation, looking at the relationships between drawing, moving image, and the influence of digital technologies. With an emphasis on practice, and the artist’s perspective, the day will embrace an eclectic range of approaches, and ask how digital and hybrid technologies are influencing artists and their work.
