Curators Leo Kuelbs and Sandra Ratkovic present “Digital Fairy Tales: Album Two,” the second set of visual + sound pieces inspired by old German tales collected by Xavier von Schönwerth in the early 19th century.
This presentation of weird and wonderful tales will bring ancient archetypal contexts and references into the 21st century. By creating this bridge through time, “Digital Fairy Tales” will reveal and enliven commonalities of the collective subconscious covering the 150-year period in question and beyond.
Also, through the use of digital media, notions of storytelling are allowed to evolve, just as they have throughout history. “Digital Fairy Tales” is yet another new way to tell some of the oldest stories.
After a successful presentation of Album One in October of 2016, The Made in NY Media Center by IFP is proud to partner with the Leo Kuelbs Collection to debut Album Two in our digital media arts gallery.
In addition to free wine and beer at the opening, we will also host a panel with co-curator Leo Kuelbs and the artists featured in the show at 7:30p.
Featuring new work by: Keegan Luttrell + Justin King, Daniela Kostova + Anna Leevia, Daniela Imhoff, Kristian Pedersen + Elke Brauweiler, Anton Marini & Danielle Ezzo, Boris Kralj + Matresanch, Michael McGuirk + Alex Hamadey
