The enigmatic, London-based filmmakers are the focus of this exhibition and its accompanying screening series. Featuring more than 300 works including handcrafted marionettes, sets, drawings, installations, animated and live-action films, commercials and music videos, the labyrinthine gallery takes you through the Quays’ evolution from budding artists and commercial illustrators to filmmakers specializing in surrealistic hand-manipulated animation.
