The word "animation" stems from the Latin "animātiōn", a stem of "animātiō", meaning "a bestowing of life". Animation touched people of different ages and making animation is an art that creates lives.
As a new art form, the animation was born in 1892 and developed rapidly in the last century. There are so many classic figures that were created during the development and most of their influence and vigorousness never faded as time goes by. There is no doubt that animation has become one of the most important forms of entertainment and art nowadays.
In this exhibition, audiences can enjoy the manuscripts and celluloid of a large arrange of classic animations as well as the new-age animations made by the latest technology. The classic animations include Chinese traditional animations which are represented by Shanghai Animation Film Studio, European and American Classic animations which are represented by Disney and the Japanese classic animations represented by Ghibli. On the other hand, the new-age animations are composed of interactive animations and VR games made by Pinta Studios, AHA ENTERTAINMENT and SHAREFUN STUDIO. By reviewing the precious manuscripts and celluloid of classic animations and feeling the new visual impact of the new-age animations, we will discuss and explore the development track and future direction of Chinese and foreign animation art together.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to our partners, supporting institutions and all the staff who contribute to the exhibition, seminars, and related activities.
