Eleven in Motion: Abstract Expressions in Animation

Anyone interested in experimental and artistic animated short films is welcome to attend a free screening for the film 'Eleven in Motion.' Taking inspiration from the local Painters Eleven Movement of the 50s, 11 commissioned animation directors have created some unique pieces ranging from 2 to 5 minutes based on the artwork of the original Painters Eleven Group. You can learn more here.

Other events will also be taking place, so for anyone interested in taking advantage of this, details are below:
