The Jim Henson Exhibition

Museum of the Moving Image

This dynamic experience explores Jim Henson’s groundbreaking work for film and television and his transformative impact on culture.

Mr. Yellow Sweatshirt

Shot in the Roosevelt Ave/Jackson Heights station, this installation video captures the tide of New Yorkers streaming through an entrance to the subway system in what the filmmakers refer to as a “collective ballet.”

Eva Davidova’s participatory installation playfully incorporates both ancient myth and contemporary reality, highlighting the theme of interdependent responsibility in the wake of ecological disaster.

Dissolution

David Levine’s Dissolution is a jewel-box sculpture that conjures the past and future of the moving image. A 20-minute film played on a loop, it draws on the central conceit of iconic 1980s movies and TV shows such as Tron and Max Headroom: human characters who find themselves dematerialized and confined within the interior worlds of electronic devices.
