“Moving Images” Collection Focuses on Powerful Imagery

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

Images are powerful. And we see countless images every day. Some are moments in time captured centuries ago—or perhaps just seconds ago. Whether through photos, newsreels, animation, film, TV, paintings, or even selfies, we collect countless images every day in our memories—and on our phones—discriminately and indiscriminately.

But all images are created with the intent to communicate, and each of us views an image with eyes informed by the lives we’ve lived.

MOVING IMAGES is a collection of experiences focused on the complementary power of image-making and image-viewing. With a roving lens pointed at the historical and the contemporary, these incredible artists and creators have created powerful images for us to witness, contemplate, enjoy, and discuss.
