Nightmare City: Unwelcome - A Blacklight Poster Exhibit

 

 

Co-presented by The Woodshed Horror Company and Cinespia.

 

CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE “UNWELCOME” STORE, WHERE YOU CAN PURCHASE LIMITED EDITION SILKSCREEN PRINTS OF ALL THE WORKS FROM THE EXHIBIT!

 

A horror-themed blacklight poster exhibit curated by Sammy Harkham.  Gallery Hours (October 12th – October 31st): 8pm-2am.

 

As part of Nightmare City, Cinefamily is opening its hidden and forbidden upstairs office to the public, as we launch a new gallery space exclusively for the festival.  We proudly present UNWELCOME: an examination and reappraisal of that radiant popular artform once relegated to smoke-filled suburban basements — now brought into the glorious black-light of day, with works imbued with neon blood, fluorescent frights, and ultraviolet ultraviolence.  Guest curator Sammy Harkham, renowned comic artist and creator of Kramer’s Ergot, has selected 10 leading contemporary illustrative artists and invited them to examine the theme of horror in this vibrant medium.

 

Plus, in the main theatre we’ll have:
- 7:30pm-8:30pm: Active Listening session by Daniel Noah
- 8:30pm-9:30pm: “The Nite Owl” — a special mix of horror-themed experimental, animated and psychedelic programming from Cinefamily’s own band of basement dwellers.
- 10:00pm: A special moody Moog performance by Hans Fjellestad.  

 

Artists include:
Will Sweeney
Ben Jones
Robert Beatty
Tara Sinn
Michael DeForge
Jim Krewson
Shary Boyle
Karn Piana
Jordan Crane
Arik Roper
