ANIMATE OPEN: Parts & Labour

The Parts & Labour exhibition sets out to celebrate, subvert and confound our expectations of what animation is, bringing together different artistic approaches that connect through their exploration of the concept of animation as craft. It features 21 cutting edge animated films selected from an international open call that attracted 198 entries. The works are grouped under three headings: Industry, Manufacture and Material.

The artists are: Kristian Andrews, Jane Cheadle, Sophie Clements, James Duesing, Richard Fenwick, Guillaume Martial, Vicky Smith, Catherine Anyango, Jake Fried, Jonathan Gillie, Michaela Grill, Rui Hu, Wednesday Kim, Peter Millard, Edwin Rostron, Steven Subotnick, Sebastian Buerkner, Kent Lambert, David Theobald, Sean Vicary, Alan Warburton


Animate Projects is an internationally renowned strategy agency working out of Derby and London that supports and champions experiments in animation. For the next seven months, Animate will be working in partnership with QUAD on projects including the forthcoming exhibitions Parts & Labour: Noriko Okaku and Silent Signal, and during this time, they will be partly resident in QUAD’s offices.
