Journey to the Moon
A co-presentation with TIFF Future Projections programme
September 7 – 19, 2010
Note special hours for this exhibition:
Open every day from 12:00 – 5:00 pm.
Gallery TPW is pleased to announce our first collaboration with the Toronto International Film Festival’s Future Projections programme with the Toronto premiere of Journey to the Moon (2003) by acclaimed South African artist William Kentridge. With Journey to the Moon Kentridge pays homage to French director Georges Méliès’ classic Voyage dans la Lune (1902), also on view at the gallery and widely considered cinema’s first science fiction film. Combining live action and stop motion animation, Journey to the Moon in part pictures the creative process as Kentridge performs for the camera, playing the scientist/artist who dreams of worlds afar but ultimately cannot escape.
Journey to the Moon is co-presented by Gallery TPW and Toronto International Film Festival Future Projections programme. TIFF takes place September 9-19, 2010 (http://tiff.net/).
