Pioneers of early cinema are shown alongside leading contemporary artists in a new display at the Whitechapel Gallery.

wixt Two Worlds is drawn from the collections of Contemporary Art Society member museums across the south of England and is part of the Whitechapel Gallery’s programme opening up public and private collections for everyone.

The exhibition- which t akes its title from a book about the famous 19th century medium William Eglinton - maps the pivotal moment in cinema history when still photography evolved into moving images.
Inspired by John and William Barnes’ collection of early moving image apparatus held in Hove Museum, this shift is explored through objects, photographs and film.

Highlights of the Contemporary Art Society exhibition include magic lanterns and slides from the late 19th century, films and photographs by pioneers such as Wi l liam Friese - Greene , Ead weard Muybridge and Albert Smith.
