Opening Reception:

DEATH…IT’S OUT THERE turns to contemporary artists to explore the ways in which our culture looks at this inevitable phenomenon. Video and photography combine to present an omnibus of the chillingly bizarre, the transcendent and the unforgiving landscape of death. Through themes such as violence, loss, popular culture, nihilism, ritual and the afterlife, nine artists touch upon our culture’s renewed interest in death.

With DEATH…IT’S OUT THERE curator Ulysses Castellanos proudly proclaims: “I die, therefore I am.”

DEATH…IT’S OUT THERE is part of Ulysses Castellanos’ I SEE A DARKNESS curatorial residency.

The I SEE A DARKNESS residency is made possible with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
