V21 Artspace is excited to present the Anim18 VR gallery, a newly commissioned animated experience, celebrating British Animation, curated by QUAD and supported by Film Hub Wales and Chapter (Cardiff) working with the BFI Film Audience Network. Visitors can explore 2D animated works celebrating British Animation.

The final work will be available to view in the QUAD resource area from November 2018, as well as at participating venues around the country.
The exhibition represents all four of the Anim18 key strands of Politics and Persuasion, Young at Heart, Breaking Boundaries and Connections and will display newly commissioned work through Anim18, as well as existing animations from the British animation history.
Featuring Artists: Anushka Kishani Naanayakkara, Ian Gouldstone, Jessica Ashman, Kate Sullivan, Leeds Animation Workshop, Leo Crane, Noriko Okaku, Osbert Parker, Pixelheads (National Videogame Museum), Ruth Coggins, Samantha Moore, Seeing Sound, plus the Anim18 AnimJam winner.
Anim18 is a UK-wide celebration of British animation, taking place from April to November 2018. Led by Film Hub Wales and Chapter (Cardiff) working with the BFI Film Audience Network and project partners, Anim18 will showcase the best of British talent – past, present and future – through a programme of screenings, activities and events across the UK.
Anim18 has brought together a newly developed network of industry expertise, exhibition partners, and community-focused organisations to generate renewed interest in British animation, bring classic titles back into the spotlight, celebrate British talent in new releases, and unveil brand new commissions.
