‘Hollywood Afterlives in Art and Artifact’ (Through Sunday, April 10)

    Date: 11/07/2015 - 04/10/2016

    Time: All Day

    Location: Museum of the Moving Image (36-01 35th Ave., Queens)

    Price: Included with museum admission, free Friday evenings

    The reimagining and recycling of Hollywood movie iconography in contemporary art, and the way that movies live on in our personal and cultural memories, are explored in the exhibition Walkers: Hollywood Afterlives in Art and Artifact, opening on November 7, 2015 at the Museum of the Moving Image. Organized by independent curator and scholar Robert M. Rubin, the exhibition includes 120 works of 40 artists and directors that dissect, appropriate, and
    redefine some of the past century’s most iconic films through photography, drawing,
    sculpture, print, and video. They are joined by a selection of rare film ephemera repositioned
    as artworks ranging from costume designs for Rosemary’s Baby to the
    complete original key book stills from The 39 Steps. With a nod to the “walkers,” or
    zombies, from the TV series The Walking Dead, the exhibition’s title references the
    lingering power of film detritus on the imagination of the living.
