Edge of Frame Programs an Experimental Weekend (09th December – 11th December 2016)
09 December – 11 December 2016

London (Whitechapel Gallery, Close-Up Cinema)

The Edge of Frame Weekend is an expansive programme of screenings and discussion, celebrating the vibrant field of experimental animation, taking place at Whitechapel Gallery and Close-Up Cinema in London, 9th – 11th December 2016.

From bold personal visions to intricate and visually stunning formal experiments, the programme mixes contemporary animation by British and international artists with classic and rarely seen historical works, and a guest-curated programme from Chicago’s Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation.

The Weekend begins with a seminar at Whitechapel Gallery featuring artists, curators and writers, addressing the position of experimental animation practice today, in relation to mainstream animation, visual arts, histories and institutions.

The Edge of Frame Weekend is curated by Edge of Frame and Animate Projects – the UK’s foremost champions of innovative animation practice. It is supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation, Royal College of Art, and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The event takes place during the Whitechapel’s William Kentridge exhibition, and is part of the London International Animation Festival.
