This MoMA gallery exh ibition and accompanying film retrospective will be the first presentation of the Quay Brothers' work in all their fields of creative activity. Intern ationally renowned moving image artists and designers\, the Quay Brothers w ere born outside Philadelphia and have worked from their London studio\, At elier Koninck\, since the late 1970s. For over 30 years\, they have been in the avant-garde of stop-motion puppet animation and live-action movie-maki ng in the Eastern European tradition of filmmakers like Walerian Borowczyk and Jan Svankmajer and the Russian Yuri Norstein\, and have championed a de sign aesthetic influenced by the graphic surrealism of Polish poster artist s of the 1950s and 1960s. Beginning with their student films in 1971\, the Quay Brothers have produced over 45 moving image works\, including two feat ures\, music videos\, dance films\, documentaries\, and signature personal works\, including The Street of Crocodiles (1986)\, the Stille Nacht series (1988–2008)\, Institute Benjamenta (1995)\, and In Absent ia (2000). They have also designed sets and projections for opera\, dra ma\, and concert performances such as Tchaikovsky’s Mazeppa (1991)\, Ionesco’s The Chairs (Tony-nominated design\, 1997)\, Richard Ayre’ s The Cricket Recovers (2005)\, and recent site-specific pieces base d on the work of Bartók and Kafka.
