DESCRIPTION

Let It End Like This asks the question, "What will they say about you when you're gone? What would you say about yourself?" and will feature obituaries created by a unique blend of over 40 people. The exhibition, curated by Todd Zuniga (Opium Magazine, Literary Death Match) asks participants to examine who they are, what they are doing, and how they will be—and want to be—remembered. Will they mock themselves, shoot for the moon, and showcase a list of regrets, failures, and successes? The act of creating one's own obituary may be immediately depressing—and a bit scary, but also exhilarating.

Let It End Like This will feature new work from creative individuals from a variety of disciplines, including writers (from New Yorker's 20 Under 40 pick Dinaw Mengestu and Orchid Thief scribe Susan Orlean), artists (Olaf Bruening, Jonathon Keats), humorists (Rick Meyerowitz, Alan Zweibel), musicians (Moby), designers, filmmakers, mothers, and way, way more.
