HARD-BOILED WONDERLAND AND THE END OF THE WORLD
January 8 - February 2, 2013
Curated by Gregg Louis
Niki De Saint Phalle & Jean Tinguely
Nohra Haime Gallery is pleased to present Hard- Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, a group exhibition curated by Gregg Louis, running from January 8th through February 2nd, 2013. An opening reception will be held on Tuesday, January 8th from 6 to 8pm.
Drawing its title from a novel by Haruki Murakami, the exhibition explores a wide range of concepts including dreams, spirituality, and the unconscious mind. Featuring works by more than 15 emerging and internationally renowned artists, the collected works twist and turn through a surreal landscape of dualities: internal and external, conscious and unconscious, spiritual and physical. When these dynamic forces intersect the result is a vaguely familiar dream-like world.
Hard-boiled Wonderland is a familiar journey through a strange place, much like the one Murakami described back in 1985.
DATES: January 8 - February 2, 2013
OPENING RECEPTION: Tuesday, January 8 from 6 to 8 p.m.
