"Midnight" Opening Reception
For their first annual summer open call. PARADICE PALASE has selected out artists responding to or creating new conversation on utopian and/or dystopian spaces as it relates to urban environments. Works relate to idealistic societies, cultures, other worlds; or relate to the failure, doom, and deterioration of similar spaces.
The title Midnight references the novel "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", where the time "midnight", refers to the time between 11pm-12am (good magic) and 12am-1am (bad magic). This becomes a sort of limbo - it is a mediating point between ideal, good, or positive, and destructive, bad, or negative environments.
