Pixar: 25 Years of Animation. CaixaForum Madrid

Madrid, 20 March 2014

The art challenges the technology. Technology inspires the art.” That is how John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer at Pixar Animation Studios, sums up the spirit of the US company that marked a turning-point in the film world with its innovations in computer animation.

This is a medium that is at once extraordinarily liberating and extraordinarily challenging, since everything, down to the smallest detail, must be created from nothing. Pixar: 25 Years of Animation casts its spotlight on the challenges posed by computer animation, based on some of the most memorable films created by the studio. Taking three key elements in the creation of animated films ?the characters, the stories and the worlds that are created? the exhibition reveals the entire production process, from initial idea to the creation of worlds full of sounds, textures, music and light.

Pixar: 25 Years of Animation traces the company’s most outstanding technical and artistic achievements since its first shorts in the 1980s, whilst also enabling visitors to discover more about the production process behind the first 12 Pixar feature films through 402 pieces, including drawings, “colorscripts”, models, videos and installations.

Pixar: 25 Years of Animation. Place: CaixaForum Madrid (Paseo del Prado, 36). Dates: From 21 March to 22 June 2014.
