Coffee with a Curator - Dread and Delight: Fairy Tales in an Anxious World
Coffee with a Curator: Dread and Delight
Grab a cup of coffee and chat about the upcoming exhibition Dread & Delight: Fairy Tales in an Anxious World with Associate Curator Theresa Bembnister. Dread & Delight brings together the work of contemporary artists who use classical fairy tales to address the complexities of our lives today. While some embrace the stories’ promises of transformation and happy endings, others plumb the tales’ more troubling elements—poverty, addiction and exploitations of power.
Dread & Delight: Fairy Tales in an Anxious World is organized by the Weatherspoon Art Museum at The University of North Carolina, Greensboro and curated by Dr. Emily Stamey.
