2. The Museum of the Moving Image Gets GIFs

Up in Astoria, the Museum of the Moving Image has been showing some of the more innovative programming of all things internet. Earlier this year, they brought a retrospective of JODI. Now, on a smaller scale, Assistant Curator of Digital Media Jason Eppink has organized a screening of 35 GIFs about a 2011 meme, you know, the one where everyone doctored images of a soccer player mysteriously tumbling during in-game play. This exhibition doesn’t pretend to be art, but it shows a lot of creativity and it’s in a museum. That’s pretty rare.

On view through September 23, 2012 at the Museum of the Moving Image, located at 36-01 35 Avenue
Astoria, NY.
