The First Annual Detroit .gif Group Show


Go to the .gif site to see images and video from the exhibition.

Detroit starts the year off by presenting the first recurring .gif group exhibition, The First Annual Detroit .gif Group Show. Gif is an abbreviation for Graphics Interchange Format which is a type of file that has been used for static pictures and simple animations since the late 80s.

The exhibition’s starting point is our fascination with the gif’s clear frames and inclusive availability. The First Annual Detroit .gif Group Show is an internet based international exhibition where the invitation to participate has been spread through forums, mailing lists and art schools. In the 2009 edition the chosen gifs come from Sweden, Great Britain, Germany, Denmark, Finland, USA, France and Austria.
