KINGSTON ART 2018: MY MUYBRIDGE
04 MAY - 07 JULY 2018
Kingston Museum is proud to once again display the work of professional artists of Kingston, who are members of ASC Kingston, Fusion Art, KAOS and KINC. This year’s theme is My Muybridge, focussing on the Museum’s photographic collection of world renowned Kingston-born photographer and inventor Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904). Muybridge pioneered movement studies and motion picture projection and his work continues to have an immense, wide-ranging influence on modern culture. Kingston Art 2018: My Muybridge contemporary art exhibition showcases selected artists’
responses to Kingston Museum’s Muybridge Collection and to the life and works of pioneering photographer Eadweard Muybridge using different media.
The works of 24 Kingston-based professional artists have been selected by a panel of judges. An additional 6 artists have also been invited to showcase their works. Many of these inspiring artworks will be available to buy. Three prizes, the Judge’s 1st and 2nd Choices and the Public Choice, will be awarded to the artworks which gain the most votes from the judges and public. Exciting art workshops and activities for children, families and adults will be hosted at the Museum throughout the exhibition.
This exhibition is generously sponsored by CassArt Kingston.
