In our ongoing effort to present unique and challenging art experiences to the public, Aggregate Space Gallery is proud to launch this celebration of non-commercial and experimental animation. Animation, as a subset within video art, is unique in its versatility as a communicative form and its ability to place viewers inside adjacent realities. It is a medium without rules or restrictions, and its content can address ideas as simple or as complex as the animator intends.
The exhibition will culminate in an award ceremony on September 4th hosted by artist, animator, and Congratulations Pine Tree co-host, Kate Rhoades. We will be screening the top two films from each category, as well as a viewer’s choice award from each category. Viewer’s Choice categories will be rated by visitors to the gallery and our special screenings, so come by and judge these films by August 31st! The Roxie event will also include a film by each of our exhibition jurors: Zeina Barakeh, Laneya Billingsley, Ryan D Lewis, and Sarah Paulsen.
