21st July - 26th September
Venue: The Public
This summer The Public arts centre in West Bromwich has a host of film-related goodies on offer in their gallery spaces, including new work by legendary video artist Bill Viola, an exhibition devoted to Samantha Moore's animated documentary An Eyeful of Sound, and interactive gizmo Cyclo-Mation. 7 Inch Cinema are pitching in with two rolling programmes, both of which are free to watch.
The Public will be running animation workshops throughout the summer, and to give you some inspiration we’ve gathered together an hour’s worth of the finest animated shorts from around the world. This programme is particularly suitable for younger viewers, and includes:
Paraphernalia (dir: John Williams)
The tale of a boy and his robot.
Komaneko (dir: Tsuneo Goda)
The trials and tribulations of a filmmaking cat.
The Happy Duckling (dir: Gili Dolev)
Charming short in the style of a pop-up book.
Cherry on the Cake (dir: Hyebin Lee)
An incredible shrinking girl.
Western Spaghetti (dir: Pes)
How to cook using post-its and pin-cushions.
The Colour Box programme will be running every day in the gallery, and lasts an hour in total. For more information on learning activities at the Public visit their website.
