Walkers: Hollywood Afterlives in Art and Artifact

No contributor

“Walkers: Hollywood Afterlives in Art and Artifact” is a a new exhibition exploring cinematic nostalgia that opened at Museum of the Moving Image over the weekend. Through a mixture of film, photography, drawing, sculpture, and print, curator Robert M. Rubin set out to bring together a collection of works that represent iconic moments in Hollywood. Viewers are taken through a carefully curated trip, with sections titled “Thrift Shop: I Found it at the Movies” and “A Plague of Locusts” to further signify art’s connection to cinema. The title, “Walkers,” is a nod to The Walking Dead, referring to how these iconic images have lived and will continue to live on, not just in our minds, but through art. A set design for the Bates Motel neon sign from Psycho, a costume sketch for “Bunny #2” from Apocalypse Now, prints by Richard Mosse and a script for Heart of Darkness are some of the treasures that can be found in this exciting exhibition. “The visual icons and behavioral conventions of celluloid cinema circulate permanently in our unconscious even as the technologies that spawned them yield to the digital. Nowhere is this more evident than in contemporary art,” said Rubin.
