Magic Lantern - Camden Art Centre

Magic Lantern

From January to March 2009 artist Alex Schady and residents of the Lithos Road Estate produced a new animated film. Schady has a dynamic approach to mixed-media, he re-imagines past traditions in new ways and creates acts of social cohesion.

Schady produced our annual winter festival In with the New in partnership with Animate Projects, showing original and creative animation films from Animate’s archives along with workshops demonstrating magic. Animate Projects explore the relationship between contemporary art and animation for broadcast, gallery, cinema and online exhibitions.
