Beginning Sunday October 6th and running through January 5th, 2014, the Detroit Instutite of Arts (DIA) will exhibit Watch Me Move: The Animation Show. This is a must-see art show and film festival for all who appreciate animation, its varied forms and its rich history.

The installation is one of the most extensive animation shows ever mounted, coming to Detroit directly from the Barbican Centre in London (who originally curated it). The DIA has added an extensive film program (curated by historian Steve Stanchfield) and invited guests (including yours truly). The exhibit features original animation art representing both iconic pieces and lesser-known discoveries from over the last 100 years. It covers animation's great inventors, innovators and artists, from Georges Melies and Chuck Jones up through Tim Burton, as well work from animation studios such as Walt Disney, Aardman, Studio Ghibli and Pixar.

The films and lectures include (film programs are planned to run multiple times, see schedule for all dates and times):
