Weird World is an exhibition of artists’ books, photography and drawings exploring anthropological portraiture through an artistic lens, with an emphasis on the unseen, the occult, the weird, the wild, and the subversive. These artists present rare observational studies of various subcultures, ranging from punks and teenage ravers, members of the Westboro Baptist Church, to minority tribes of the Yunnan Province in China. These portraits provide an intimate yet omnipresent view of these seemingly exclusive unapproachable communities in their “natural habitats.” Reporting through an artist’s eye offers more than photojournalism, allowing their creativity to guide their observations, incorporate digital manipulation, and present their findings in unique sculptural formats.

Coinciding with this exhibition we are hosting open-call for the exhibition zine. The artists in exhibition will curate a selection of photographs, drawings and text to be published in a full-color publication alongside their own artwork, to be released at a closing party for the exhibition. For more information...

Weird World  is the twelfth in a series of group exhibitions dedicated to providing self-publishing artists, who generally share their work through printed matter and other ephemeral media, with a platform for exhibition, experimentation and exploration outside of the printed format. Curated by Aimee Lusty.
