Event Description

Opening exactly a century after the first Muybridge exhibition at Kingston Museum, this exhibition focuses on some of the rarest surviving objects within the museum’s collection: Muybridge’s beautiful hand-painted glass Zoöpraxiscope discs. The museum owns 68 of the 71 known Zoöpraxiscope discs worldwide - a stunning collection never before exhibited as the focus of a major exhibition, much of which will be displayed here for the first time since production by Muybridge himself.

Informed by true photographic sequences, Muybridge’s Zoöpraxiscope discs straddle the disciplinary boundaries between photography, animation and film and were designed to confirm the validity of Muybridge's moving image work.
