Step Right UP!
Step Right UP! A carnival inspired exhibition will have guests feeling like a kid again. E11even 2 is excited to announce its next exhibit to open on July 21st from 5-9pm featuring over 40 artists. Guest curator Leslie Edwards Humez, had this to say:
“Exhibiting artists were invited to create new work for this exhibit that leaned toward the nostalgic or surreal and drew heavily on their childhood memories: that magical time when things loomed larger, brighter, and more colorful. Where the element of surprise provoked involuntary shivers, amusement parks rocked, and carnival kisses cost a buck.
In STEP RIGHT UP, there will be work with a sunlit perspective that highlights fun foods, midway wheels-of-chance, thrill rides, blue-ribbon competitions and more. Or (thanks to Cher) the work may sneak a peek at the edgy side of the traveling show with its gypsies, tramps and thieves who beckon us with crooked fingers into that unsettling neon space where flim-flam rules and fortune-tellers, floozies and freaks hide behind midnight faces.”
