THE WORLD IS NOT ENDING, YOUR WORLD IS ENDING (2011)

THE WORLD IS NOT ENDING, YOUR WORLD IS ENDING (2011) is an exhibition that I curated at galleryHOMELAND, March 2011, in Portland, OR. The exhibition featured works by a group of artists whose recent practices had been addressing eschatological themes directly or indirectly, sincerely or ironically.

Curatorial statement:

Amidst a massive financial collapse, global political unrest and dwindling natural resources, this exhibition explores eschatological theories and iconography through a variety of visual media. A common obsession in contemporary culture, speculations regarding the Apocalypse or End Times provides the participating artists fodder for satire, sensationalism, propaganda and product.
