On Wednesday Tumblr and Paddle8 will open “Moving the Still,” an exhibition of animated GIFs selected by a star-studded committee — James Frey, Michael Stipe, Nicola Formichetti, Richard Phillips, Inez & Vinoodh, Rodarte, RoseLee Goldberg, and Ryan Trecartin — at a 35,000-square-foot warehouse near Wynwood.
The show, which includes moving digital images by Jim Drain, Aarong Young, Adam Dugas, Alex Da Corte, threeASFOUR, and more, will be on view December 5-8, coinciding with Art Basel Miami Beach and its satellite fairs.
The exhibition will be on view at 318 NW 23rd Street (the warehouse entrance is on NW 2nd Avenue) from noon-7pm, with a reception and party scheduled for 8pm-midnight on Friday, December 7. Works included were picked by the selection committee from hundreds submitted via an open call — including the above gem by Patrick Burnell — which can be browsed on the “Moving the Still” Tumblr site.
