There were dozens of them – a generation, near enough – working as ‘inbetweeners’ and cleaners-up, doing thumb-nailing or little animation tests, getting to know particular characters and ending up as animators, compositors. That’s where it all starts […] So why was I the only one in the Hawley Arms not wearing a Roger Rabbit UK crew jacket?
PEER in partnership with Animate Projects has commissioned four new moving image works to be back-projected through PEER’s gallery windows and viewed from Hoxton Street, from 3pm to 8pm Wednesday to Saturday, until 8 March 2014.
‘Animate Me’ is published as a free, A5 one-fold pamphlet, typeset by the brilliant Joe Ewart, and will be available in the gallery throughout the exhibition.
On Saturday 1 March at 4pm I am chairing a panel discussion with artists Savinder Bual, Karolina Glusiec and Margaret Salmon. This will take place at the gallery, and is free, but booking is essential. Click here to reserve your place.
