Kingston-born photography pioneer Eadweard Muybridge will be celebrated at Kingston Museum. The My Muybridge exhibition will run from 4 May to 7 July, showing 24 Kingston artists’ responses to the museum’s collection of Muybridge’s work.
Seoyoung Kim, Curator at Kingston Museum, said:
“This year presents an opportunity to work on the heritage offered by Muybridge's collection owned by the museum and the importance of its presence in Kingston. This is one of the most important collections at the museum."
Muybridge was a pioneer of movement and motion pictures projection and his work continues to have a wide-ranging influence on modern culture today. In 1904 he passed his personal collection to the newly built Kingston Museum. The Muybridge Collection at Kingston Museum is one of four preeminent collections worldwide, with a distinctive local and personal connection to the photographer himself.
Sponsored by CassArt, My Muybridge is free to attend at Kingston Museum on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 5pm, and on Thursdays from 10am to 7pm, from 4 May to 7 July.
