Upload.gif: Celebration of Animated GIFs | SF

Upload.gif is an exhibition and event series that celebrates the Animated GIF organized by New Hive and the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts.

Spanning 26 years, GIFs are now one of the oldest image formats on the web. An in-between medium that is lighter than a video and heavier than a photo, animated GIFs occupy a unique position as a fundamental part of the Internet, web art and pop culture.
