Decadence and Decay. From May 10th through Jun 7th, 2008.Albertini Arts, located at 190 NW 36 Street in Wynwood, is opening the group exhibition Decadence and Decay curated by resident artist Kris Steffner. Included in the show are works by Eric Sparhawk Edwards, Fernando 'El' Ganas, Joseph Fischer, Kris Steffner, Laurie Vaughn, Melissa Markowitz, Mike Frick and Tony Rosca.
The show features various works that incorporate the human skeleton as subject. Hidden but intrinsic to all living beings, the revealed skeleton has long been a subject of fascination often used as inspiration in art, literature and philosophy. Pieces in the show range from classical to contemporary. While some focus on anatomy, others take a more humorous tone by poking fun at our ongoing and understandably invested interest in our own beauty and mortality.
