The DePaul Humanities Center, with support from the DePaul Animation Program, will be hosting identical twins Stephen and Timothy Quay — a.k.a. The Brothers Quay, the celebrated London-based stop-motion artists and filmmakers — as part of the School of Cinematic & Interactive Media’s visiting artists lecture series this Wednesday, April 16. The Brothers Quay will hit the windy city fresh from a comprehensive retrospective of their work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
The free event, taking place 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. in the DePaul Student Center, will include discussions with the acclaimed filmmakers about their impressive careers, which includes successful shorts like 1986’s Street of Crocodiles as well as feature work like This Dream People Call Human Life (1995). The Quays will screen the “Hopscotch” retrospective from the MoMA exhibit as well as their latest short based on the life of Felisberto Hernandez, and will be presented with the Humanities Laureate Award by the DePaul Humanities Center.
