Part of BAMart

Curated by Paddle8 and powered by Tumblr, Moving the Still celebrates the GIF as an artistic medium. Originally presented at last year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, this unique festival came to fruition when Chief Council member Johnny Misheff gathered prominent figures from various creative industries to curate the GIFS. Members of the Selection Council include Michael Stipe, Ryan Trecartin, RoseLee Goldberg, Rodarte, Nicola Formichetti, Richard Phillips, James Frey, and Vinoodh Matadin & Inez van Lamsweerde.

For the presentation on the BAM sign (located at the corner of Flatbush and Lafayette Avenues), BAMart has made its own selection, which includes several GIFs made by members of the Selection Council themselves.
