Daniel Gonçalves #148 ink on paper 2017

The exhibition will be a curated installation which blends works by established and emerging contemporary artists, historical and vernacular images, folk art painting and sculpture, acclaimed visionary and outsider artists, vintage photography and works by anonymous or unknown artists all addressing themes of animism, witchcraft, shamanism, voodoo, magic and demonology, celebrating the themes of the evening preceding ALL HALLOW’S EVE .

The vernacular works in the exhibition are culled from a collection in Brooklyn New York which has also shared selections in the past year with the esteemed Reina Sophia Museum in Madrid, The MET Museum in New York, The American Folk Art Museum in New York and Gagosian Gallery. The collection is known as one of the most engaging for the works of esoterica, the art which is generally understood as embracing themes of the paranormal, magic and witchcraft.
