Exhibition in Valencia and prize at the 25th Cinema Jove International Film Festival in Valencia, Spain.

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

The Vicerectorado de Cultura, Universitat Politecnica de Valencia, Spain is hosting a major retrospective exhibition of Joanna’s films, drawings and Artwork entitled ‘Joanna Quinn: Arte Vs. Animación’, which was originally curated and exhibited at the National Media Museum in Bradford in October 2009 under the title ‘Drawings that Move – the Art of Joanna Quinn’.
It’s on from 13.5.2010 – 12.7.2010.

The show is beautifully put together and is accompanied by an extensive catalogue.

The exhibition is in conjunction with the 25th Cinema Jove International Film festival (19.6.10 – 26.6.10) which this year is giving Joanna a retrospective and a prestigious award – ‘La Luna de Valencia’ (the Moon of the City of Valencia). Previous recipients of the award have included the internationally acclaimed film directors Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Stephen Frears (The Queen, My Beautiful Launderette), Richard Lester (Superman 2 & 3, Help!), veteran cult horror master Roger Corman and animation heroes like Alexandre Petrov, Caroline Leaf, and Piotr Dumala.

Joanna is extremely honoured and chuffed – as you might imagine!!
