Andrew Au: Exhibition at Manifest Gallery

"Monsters, Real or Imagined"

Like the gods of ancient religions, monsters embody cultural standards, distilled into extremes. Across ages they traipse the landscape, paralleling humanity's progress, morphing, submerging, and reappearing, revealed from within a disguise oft-made by man. Whether real or imagined, metaphorical or literal, monsters have shaped civilization, steered us to where we are now, and exist in our as yet to be determined future. How do monsters appear in the art of today? What role does art play in forming, taming, or even releasing monsters into the world? What can artists tell us about the monsters that came before, are here now, and are yet to come?

This exhibit has no defined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental. Feel free to email us here if you have any questions about submitting work to this exhibit.
