Stephen Romano Gallery presents “NOCTEM DIABOLI” (Devil’s Night), a one night exhibition event at The Living Gallery Outpost at 246 East 4th Street NYC October 30 from 7pm to midnight.
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 my 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, and Green – Wood Cemetry’s NIGHTFALL and Morbid Anatomy at Green-Wood Cemetery. The collection is known for the works of esoterica, the art which is generally understood as embracing themes of the paranormal, magic and witchcraft.
