For the past forty-two years, The Hubley Studio has been designing, directing, and producing some of American cinema's finest independent animated films. Beginning in mid-December, The Museum of Modern Art will host a major two-part exhibition devoted to the animation created by The Hubley Studio, founded in 1955 by John and Faith Hubley.
The Hubley Studio: A Home for Animation, a gallery exhibition of original materials from the studio's animated films (including: concept art, animation drawings, storyboards, background paintings, and layouts), begins on December 19, 1997, and ends February 1, 1998.
From January 16 to February 1, 1998, the Museum will present The Art of the Hubleys, a major retrospective featuring more than fifty films made by Faith, by John and Faith, and by their daughter Emily. Among the highlights of the series will be seven Academy Award-nominated films, three of which (Moonbird, 1960; The Hole, 1963; and Tijuana Brass Double Feature, 1966) won Oscars, as well as new works by Faith and Emily Hubley. This complete retrospective, which spans the years 1956 to 1997, is the most comprehensive program mounted thus far in the United States.
