2022 | DREAMLAND: The Art Pile


The exhibition Dreamland – The Art Pile, invites you to compile a post apocalyptic vision as described by those left to tell the tale. Like a renaissance after dark ages, punk out of the gloom of the seventies, an awakening from the Great Forgetting reminding us that despite our mass centralized, destructive society, we have once also been tribal, a single culture of thousands. It should be a catalyst for a fresh perspective on our place in the world and human history, an offering of culture as an outlet to safely relieve social trauma. We offer our small 9’x15’ gallery as a dreamland woven by your visions of what an art platform should be. This is not a curated show. This is a documentary, hell even a docudrama if you wish to perform.
