ITS A DRAW
The Brooklyn Academy of Musics Electric Picture Show brings to light a wealth of overlooked truths: that Claymation isnt just for Christmas specials (Golden Luckys Looking Thru the B-Sides), that Banananimation is a legitimate, although hard to pronounce, art form (Molly Schwartzs Things That Smell Like Things That Arent OK), and that even the terrible pains of pregnancy can be rendered adorable as a cartoon (Signe Baumanes Birth). The collection of 13 animated shorts highlights a wide variety of the boroughs emerging multimedia talent. Dont miss James Blagdens hilariously illustrated true account of the Pittsburgh pitcher who threw a no-hitter while high on acid—Dock Ellis & the LSD No No—or the equally trippy homemade music videos for Animal Collective, Yeasayer, and the Bravery.
