Event Description

See movement and time unfold in a new exhibition at Hove Museum. The Moving Image contrasts how movement is shown in both photography and art.

Eadweard Muybridge was a 19th century photographer who was the first to develop photographic sequences of moving objects. Placing studies in his famous series Animal Locomotion alongside paintings, engravings and drawings selected from Brighton & Hove Museums’ Fine Art Collection, reveals how artists can represent movement even within a static image.

Muybridge’s studies – including cats, horses and elephants – show his understanding of motion as an event taking place in a sequence of phases. Traditionally in fine art, however, movement is communicated through a single significant moment. The Moving Image illustrates the many ways in which we can ‘see’ movement and time unfold.

Free admission - designed with children in mind.
Open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm, Sunday 2-5pm
Closed Monday (including public holidays)
