Remembering A True Cinema Original
Ray Harryhausen was one of the greats of 20th century cinema and a new exhibition, Ray Harryhausen: Titan Of Cinema, has just opened at the National Galleries Of Scotland in Edinburgh…
Modern Two is now a place of fantastical feature film magic as we reopen our doors with a blockbuster exhibition. Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema is open now at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern Two).
The exhibition is not only a celebration of Ray Harryhausen’s films, but also a delve into the incredible archive of models, drawings, storyboards, posters, photographs, scripts, behind-the-scenes footage (and even Ray’s Oscar and Bafta Lifetime Achievement Awards!) he collated from his decades working in movies. We explore the incredible stop motion animation techniques he pioneered, the iconic creatures he brought to life and the films that made his name like Jason and the Argonautsand Clash of the Titans. We also trace his subsequent influence on everyone from George Lucas and Sir Peter Jackson to Aardman Animations and Guillermo del Toro. It is an accessible, immersive, interactive experience for art lovers and film fans alike.
