Twixt Two Worlds is presented in association
with Brighton Photo Biennial (BPB14)

BPB14 runs 4 October – 2 November 2014

Inspired by the Barnes Brothers’ collection of early cinema apparatus and ephemera at the Hove Museum, Twixt Two Worlds takes the technique of double exposure and the visual effect of superimposition as starting points to explore the transition between still and moving image across photography, magic lantern slides and cinema. Objects such as early cine cameras (c.1900) and magic lanterns (c.1850) will sit alongside moving image works by contemporary artists like Douglas Gordon, Saskia Olde Wolbers and Jane & Louise Wilson.

Curated by Gaia Tedone, Curatorial Fellow, Contemporary Art Society in partnership with Royal Pavilion & Museums, Brighton & Hove and Whitechapel Gallery.
