From now through January 7, 2013, New York’s Museum of Modern Art is presenting a retrospective of the work of identical twins, Stephen and Timothy Quay, also known as the Quay Brothers.
The prolific duo’s claim to fame is their use of stop-motion puppet animation featuring foreboding dolls and machinery in surreal episodes, influenced by the likes of Joseph Cornell, Hieronymous Bosch, and Salvador Dali. Set up as a two-story maze, the MoMA installation includes hours upon hours of the brothers’ films, videos, commercials, and documentaries, along with displays featuring their original puppets and props.
Love them or not, it’s always good for Home Projectionists to have a storehouse of clips on hand to round out an evening’s experience.
Remember: Halloween is coming up….
