Animation Premiere at The National Gallery of Art

Premiere screening of Sharon Louden's animation,

one evening only:
Sunday, March 27th at 5:00pm
National Gallery of ArtEast Wing Auditorium
401 Constitution Avenue, NW
Washington, DC

free general admission -- open to the public

Along with three older animations, Carrier will be shown as part of a program entitled,
Cine'-Concert: Art in Motion!:

Music and animation synchronize and harmonize in 15 playful abstract shorts by classic and contemporary animators. From Viking Eggeling's 1924 Symphonie diagonale, to Jules Engel's 1968 Silence, to New York artist Sharon Louden's digital creations Footprints, Hedge, The Bridge, and the premiere of Carrier -- all the works presented are "whimsical, drawn-in-space creations that come alive and create their own narratives," as artist Louden describes her own work. Her animations will be accompanied by live piano and percussion compositions by Andrew Simpson (piano) and Barry Dove (percussion). The older classic works feature their own original scores, intersections of visual and musical forms. (Approximately 100 minutes)

A conversation between Margaret Parsons, Curator of Film at the National Gallery of Art, Andrew Simpson, Resident Film Accompanist for the National Gallery of Art, Brian Clyne of Brian Clyne Studio, and artist Sharon Louden will follow immediately.
