DESCRIPTION

DARKNESS DESCENDS: Norwegian Art Now delves into the uniquely Norwegian style of neo-romanticism in contemporary art. The exhibition will bring together a multi-generational group of visual, performance, sound, and video artists to explore a fascination with darkness that is inspired by mythology and a close relationship to nature. Curated by Christina Vassallo, the exhibition will take place during The Armory Show, March 5 - 8, 2009, and it is the fourth installment in a series of M*A*S*H NY shows produced by Cottelston Advisors.

The sound art program of DARKNESS DESCENDS will be presented simultaneously at PULSE New York

Generous support for the exhibition has been provided by the Royal Norwegian Consulate General. Beverages provided by Christiania Vodka.
