Stop and Go Rides Again
October 8 November 5, 2011
The Stop & Go program, screening internationally since 2008, showcases animations that use stop-motion techniques to explore visual language, tell stories and make social commentaries. Stop & Go Rides Again features a new series of stop-motion animations by 25 contemporary visual artists and filmmakers from around the world. In addition to showing the Stop & Go animation program, this show featured site-specific large-scale works and performances by Bay Area Stop & Go Rides Again artists Kathy Aoki, Paz de la Calzada, Mel Prest, and Andy Vogt. The animations were curated by Sarah Klein, an artist, educator, and curator whose own practice includes animation, and the exhibition was curated by Mel Prest, an artist and educator who made her first animation for Stop & Go in 2008.
