Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Today is the 179th anniversary celebrating the birth of the early pioneer of 'moving pictures', John Arthur Roebuck Rudge. Discover more about the 'JAR of Knowledge' (as named by his friends) and how we might make the big 1-8-0 an extra special occasion for him next year in this blog from Brighton & Hove Museums...
The blog is part of RPM’s John Ellerman Foundation-funded project ‘Film Pioneers’, which aims to develop curatorial skills by enabling staff at the museum to research, display and document the city’s Film & Media collections. This includes the Experimental Motion display and a full review of the collection to further explore its international significance and how the museum might enhance its use, as well as ensuring that the collection is fully accessible to the public online. Another strand will enable skills-development and sharing for professionals working with film and media collections across the south east.
Experimental Motion: the art of film innovation will explore Brighton & Hove’s success as a place for experimental film-making, and its significance nationally and internationally.
