Thank you to everyone who made it out this past weekend to celebrate the opening reception of the MIDNIGHT Exhibition! We had an incredible Halloween weekend talking about all of the creepy, haunting, mysterious, and bizarre themes that run through our subconscious!
The MIDNIGHT exhibition includes new work by 80 creatives from around the globe. This brave group of artists have depicted some of the most memorable scenarios from their dreams are are opening it up to the audience for interpretations, theories, and deciphering these cryptic signs from our dreams! The exhibition is on display through November 19th.
At the opening reception, we asked gusts and artists to try and decode some of the dreams. We received tons of submissions with wild guesses, historical references, and comments about similar experiences. Throughout the month of November, we will be sharing the dream interpretations and opening it up to the global community -- share your thoughts and help the artist understand images of the sleeping brain!
Artist's MIDNIGHT images encompass some well-known dream themes such as loosing teeth, flying, or falling, as well as lurking figures, severed limbs, unending stairwells, and secret forests. You can check out each piece from the exhibition on the MIDNIGHT online gallery here.
Each artists has provided some context for their images. Illustrator, Gino Pambiachi wrote, "I woke next to a dark lake. There was snow falling on my face and dusting the cold rocky ground around me. The lake began glowing as a great light from above descended slowly. The moon crashed into the lake, full of arrows, and I could feel it's warm glow against my face. A second crash hit the lake moments later and a great bird stood with its wings stretched. The bird just stood there, watching the moon."
