Celebrating 20 years of Squeaky Wheel’s Animation Fest, this exhibition takes a look back at films screened in past editions. Begun as an outdoor screening in 2003, the fest celebrates animation in all its forms. Often organized by emerging guest curators, the fest has featured hundreds of classic and cutting edge animated works from Buffalo and across the globe. In anticipation of the 20th edition of the Fest taking place this Fall, Squeaky Wheel presents a retrospective exhibition of the fest, featuring five artists who have screened in prior editions, interspersed with posters, program notes, documentation, and other ephemera from the Fest’s history. The short films exhibited - by Adele Han Li, Ayoka Chenzira, Hannah R.W. Hamalian, Jazmyn Palermo, and Maria Ziaja - include works made by legendary figures and former Squeaky Wheel students, from Buffalo and beyond. They exemplify some of the Animation Fest's promise and possibility: personal visions and experiments; surprising and poignant uses of tools and technologies; and social and political commitment and critique.
