66 min

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 – 7:30 PM
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 – 7:30 PM

Spectacle is proud to present HEAD SPACE, a showcase of animated works exploring dimensions both interior and outlying. Featuring an extremely talented and creative group working in a diverse array of styles, the shorts wander through strange and sometimes sketchy landscapes, including alternate-universe appliance stores, the ramblings of Charles Manson, environmental catastrophes in the Dutch style of painting, and a houseplant’s musings. Some, like Sally Cruikshank’s Make Me Psychic, are established classics; others feature newer animators working in looping GIF format, presented away from the small screen’s momentary pleasures to fully appreciate the art that it is. Occasionally gross, often beautiful, and always interesting, HEAD SPACE is a sampler of the thoughts happening inside and out of each frame.

Featuring works by:

Signe Baumane Barbara Benas Lisa Crafts
Sally Cruikshank Penelope Gazin Faye Kahn
Celeste Lai & Peyton Skyler Amy Lockhart Lyla Ribot
Leah Shore Claire van Ryzin Wendy Zhao
