Now Open Until January 22, 2023

On Saturday, October 8, stars of the long-running series The Walking Dead visited AMC and Museum of the Moving Image’s (MoMI) major exhibition, ‘Living with The Walking Dead.’

Attendees included Christina Spade, CEO of AMC Networks; Scott Gimple, Chief Content Officer of The Walking Dead Universe; Eleanor Matsuura, Actor (Yumiko); Paola Lazaro, Actor (Juanita “Princess” Sanchez); Lauren Ridloff, Actor (Connie); Michael James Shaw, Actor (Michael Mercer); Becca Keating, MoMI Deputy Director of Development; and Barbara Miller, MoMI Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs.

Living with The Walking Dead addresses the origins, production, fandom, and impact of The Walking Dead, one of the most-watched shows in the history of cable television. Living with The Walking Dead explores the cinematic and literary antecedents of the series, including Robert Kirkman’s comic books, and the unique innovations it has contributed to onscreen depictions of the zombie apocalypse, with its wide-ranging story of survival and diverse cast of characters. The exhibition includes such production material as original costumes and props, concept art, storyboards, scripts, and a wealth of prosthetic makeup used to transform cast members into vividly realized undead walkers, largely using practical effects. 

Living with The Walking Dead has been extended and is now on view until January 22, 2023.
