This exhibition presents over one hundred flipbooks made by contemporary artists throughout Europe and North America.
Devised four years ago by artist Andrew Jeffrey Wright, a member of Space 1026 in Philadelphia, as a film festival without the film, each of the flipbooks have been submitted into one of four categories: Live Action, Animation, Experimental, and Documentary. As in traditional film festivals The International Flipbook Festival will be awarding prizes in each category at the opening reception.
The International Flipbook Festival has toured to Reg Vardy Gallery in Sunderland UK and to Space 1026 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It will travel next to Western Front Gallery in Vancouver, Canada.
There will also be a closing party/Valentines Day “Double Organ” Extravaganza on February 11th. Bands playing organs, Mudboy from Providence, RI and Kocho-bi-Sexual from Detroit, MI will be in attendance and hopefully we’ll also be graced with Peter Fuller (also from Providence) and his amazingly artful Espresso making machine.
