      The Animation Show of Shows - OPENING RECEPTION

      Montserrat College of Art Galleries invites you to view the upcoming exhibition, The Animation Show of Shows: Twenty Years and Counting. The exhibition is a celebration of the legacy of this long-running animation collection, curated by ACME Filmworks founder, Ron Diamond.

      Since 1998, Diamond envisioned the annual Animation Show of Shows as a way to showcase the year’s best shorts, selected from festivals around the world, to students and industry professionals alike. In addition to the numerous institutions, Diamond has presented the collection at major studios such as DreamWorks, Pixar, Disney and many others throughout the world.

      Over the twenty-years, works from his curation have boasted 11s Academy Award® winners, as well as 40 nominees, and have won major prizes at Cannes, Annecy, Zagreb, Ottawa, and Berlin. The techniques range from hand-drawn, paint on glass and stop-motion, to the latest computer-generated imagery, with its ability to conjure entire worlds with astonishing verisimilitude. Together these films capture, in the words of Andrew Stanton, director of Finding Nemo, “all the wit, cleverness, integrity, warmth and humor that humanity is capable of,” and have a universal appeal that makes them ideal for sharing with family and friends.”

      Montserrat is proud to be exhibiting The 19th Annual Animation Show of Shows featuring a wide diversity of directors, artists, and themes, including:

      Quentin Baillieux (France) · Lia Bertels (Belgium) · Pete Docter (USA) ·
