Queens Nails

The Modern Monster, group show,
curated by Jeanne Gerrity.
Works by five artists that express the same sense of violence and foreboding that fuels horror films. The works in the exhibition either project back filmic monsters through a critical lens, or they explore the mysterious, and often ominous, suggestion of an internal aggressor. The works somberly portend doom, but they do so with humor and compelling insights on the current state of humanity.

"Terminal Jest", curated by Stamatina Gregory and Michael Hall
Media, PA
Mar 30 - Apr 27, 2011
The arists in Terminal Jest "exploit the slippages between horror and laughter, between vulnerability and megalomania. Their work operates as a critique of contemporary culture through mimesis, skewering and subverting a range of paradigms: the machinations of geopolitics, the twisted hierarchies of the art market, the simultaneous connection and alienation of social media, and the ideologies perpetuated through popular culture, from Hollywood to B-movie horror."
