Inventorium - the Brothers Quay...

Also in Brighton, for another week, the chance to catch the Quay Brothers triple-value show at the University of Brighton, part of the excellent Cine City film festival (though the festival itself is done..).

There's a Polish film poster show, including posters from the Quays' own collection and the University's archive. There's their first installation made specifically for gallery - Eurydice - She, so beloved - a film projection and 'optical box' - made with Opera North and commissioned by Capture - dark and brooding.

And...the fabulous Dormitorium - about 17 wunderkabinets that allow us, literally, a peek into the worlds that they've created. They are everything you'd imagine an exhibition of Quay Brothers cabinets should be, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't go see them...  Fantastic!

They've also snuck in a showreel of some of their commercial work - including a sequence from Julie Taymor's Frida, as well as, unexpectedly, adverts for Skips and Dulux Wood, which are, really, very good indeed.

Their Animate film, The Phantom Museum, is here.
