Exploring Dread & Delight

Led by Associate Curator Theresa Bembnister

Once upon a time, in a gallery not-so-far away, a curator led a tour of an exhibition bringing together the work of artists using classical fairy tales to address the complexities of contemporary life. She explained how some artists embraced the tales’ promises of transformation and happy endings while others plumbed the stories’ more troubling elements—poverty, addiction and the exploitations of power.
