Past Exhibitions

Edward Muybridge and Harold Edgerton
Selected works (reproductions)

The display features reproductions from original images by two pioneers of motion picture Eadweard J. Muybridge (1830-1904) and Harold E. Edgerton (1903-1990). Both men were innovators in a field of photography, and more specifically the moving image as it pertains to the main exhibition. These inventions changed the course of the film evolution for generations to come.


Loop: connecting to the beginning
January 22 – February 16, 2018

The theoretical framework for this project focuses on animation and the looping sequence through a variety of art forms. Featured artists include Eric Dyer, Juan Fontanive, Laura Heit, Ondrej Janek, and Anna Vasof.  Their works explore a wide range of media and technical approaches that demonstrates high- and low-tech versions of the moving image. These contemporary works are juxtaposed with photographs by Harold E. Edgerton and Eadweard J. Muybridge to provide historical context for this study of motion.
