13 Possible Futures, Amy Sillman at Thomas Dane

Down the street at Thomas Dane's second gallery, Sillman shows 288 stills from her recent iPad animation 13 Possible Futures: Cartoon for a Painting.

The animation takes up where the painting leaves off, the layer of the painting that you see is the beginning of the animation and therefore the animation is a new future. It is of importance to me that people understand the animation as a set of proposals for the future of the painting, as well as a way to reveal its past. Amy Sillman
