Moving The Still: A GIF Festival

October 19, 2012

As we are finalizing our plans for the 2012 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach, we came across something we will not be missing this year. Tumblr has announced, "Moving the Still: A GIF Festival," curated by online art market Paddle 8. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the GIF, and it has come a long way from tricking out your MySpace page and dancing babies. "Moving the Still" marks new light for the GIF as it rightfully takes it's place within the digital arts. "Moving the Still" is hosting what they are calling "the first ever large-scale, open call for original animated GIFs," and submissions are open to all and will be published continuously from through November 7th, concluding with a live exhibition at Miami Art Week in December. –Brent DCVII Gentile
