Gothic Fictions Artists in Conversation

Join us a conversation with Gothic Fictions exhibiting artists Dylan Hausthor and Rory Mulligan. Hausthor will discuss his project Past the Pond, Setting Fires, takes place in a verdant and isolated New England forest. On the surface this forest appears innocuous, but it holds horrible things in its depths. Rory Mulligan will discuss his new series Sam I Am, which looks at a history of violence in the Hudson River Valley in Upstate New York and draws its influence from dark tales. From the fiction of Washington Irving and John Cheever, to the real life horror of the Son of Sam murders. Curator and Silver Eye Director will share insights into Tereza Zelenkova's series The Essential Solitude.
