The exhibit is exhibit co-hosted by @davinciartalliance to celebrate the anniversary of our film program's rebirth as @LightboxFilmCenter. From the perspective of traditionally static media (painting, printmaking, photography, and the like), the representation of movement has challenged artists throughout history.
