Fans of all kinds of animation can be excited for the return of the most extensive animation exhibition ever mounted, “Watch Me Move: The Animation Show”! Previously held in the Detroit Institute of Art this past October, this exhibition will reopen on June 6th at the Frist Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and will pay tribute to the relatively new art form of animation in an even bigger way! The exhibit will once again cover over 120 years worth of animation history, featuring famous animated pieces from companies like Disney, Pixar, Studio Ghibli, and others, as well as a wide variety of lesser-known and independent animations from all over the world, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and more! The exhibit originally debuted at the Barbican Centre in London, and Nashville is its newest stop on its international tour.

The show itself will be separated into six thematic groups: Apparitions, Fables and Fragments, Structures, Characters, Superhumans, and Modern Visions. Each of these segments will cover a specific point of animation history or genre, showing off a huge spectrum of animations and influences from across the century. There will even be feature-length screenings of some popular animated films, including “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, “Spirited Away”, “Ghost in the Shell”, “Heavy Traffic”, and many more. The exhibit will be open until September 1st, so fans should definitely check it out when it opens to the public this summer!
