Art in Motion

A Deeper Look at the Animated Figure and Its Presence in Contemporary Works



A Space for Dialogue 69


Temporary Exhibitions, Lobby


This installation asks why animation has been excluded from the Western definition of fine art as "art forms developed mainly for aesthetics" through the juxtaposition of seven different pieces from the Walt Disney animated feature film Pinocchio and three contemporary works of art that feature animation.

A Space for Dialogue, founded with support from the Class of 1948, is made possible with generous endowments from the Class of 1967, Bonnie and Richard Reiss Jr., Class of 1966, and Pamela J. Joyner, Class of 1979.
