Exciting news that the Barbican has an upcoming exhibition which traces the history of animation over the past 150 years. The Animation Show brings together contemporary artists, cut-out, collage, puppet, clay and stop-motion animators, auteur filmmakers and exponents of experimental film alongside commercial studios such as Walt Disney, Hanna-Barbera, Aardman, and Pixar. This exhibition explores the relationship between animation and film and offers insight into animation as a cultural and socio-political phenomenon. Looks like a definite visit for this summer.
