Horton Gallery Signs Filmmaker Martha Colburn

To christen his gallery’s new Lower East Side location, Horton Gallery‘s Sean Horton has signed filmmaker and animator Martha Colburn to his roster, presenting a solo show of the artist’s work on September 28. The exhibition, “Camera, lights, charge, Pop!”, is a 90-minute retrospective of Colburn’s work from the mid-1990s to the present, consisting of elaborate stop-motion animation, found footage, Polaroids and collages.

Colburn may be better known to some for her work in the music industry — as a a member of the band The Dramatics and video producer for Deerhoof and They Might Be Giants. In 2005, she contributed animation to the film “The Devil and Daniel Johnston.”

The show at Horton Gallery brings together some 30 films, the most the artist has shown at one time.
