Contemporary Artists Revive Gilded Age Glamor
February 10, 2018 Ė May 13, 2018
The Neo-Victorians presents more than a dozen contemporary artists who, looking back to Victorian antecedents, revel in elaborate construction and detail in design and decoration to create art of overwhelming visual appeal. They share a love of craft and detail from the past,
as they shape, mold, and transform what they create to reflect social concerns, often marrying surface appeal to comments on race, gender roles, and societal strife ó comments to be discovered beneath the lush and fantastical.
