Williamson Art Gallery: Hitchcock’s Trilogy from Davy and Kristin McGuire

1 October – Sunday 1 November 2015

The Hitchcock Trilogy will be on display in the Williamson Art Gallery for a few weeks before the special event ‘Perfect?‘ for Museums at Night on 30 October 2015 and the unveiling of the new site specific work.

The last weekend in October will be the only opportunity to see both the commissioned installation for the Williamson/Museums at Night and the three works on loan celebrating Alfred Hitchcock’s films.

The Hitchcock Trilogy is a variation on 3 iconic Hitchcock films sets made from paper, animated through light and video mapping.

The series features 3 intricate paper models inspired by Rear Window and The Birds, and the McGuire’s award winning animated paper installation Psycho – Homage to Hitchcock.

The competition was part of the Museums at Night festival in Friday 30 – Saturday 31 October 2015, the recent Light Night in Liverpool is the spring offering in the scheme. The bi-annual UK-wide festival attracts visitors into museums, galleries and heritage sites by throwing their doors open after hours and putting on special evening events. Co-ordinated by non-profit cultural publishing organisation Culture24, Museums at Night is an opportunity for the cultural and heritage sector to come together around a single, simple campaign that is attractive to venues, audiences and the media.
