Darkness Descends: Norwegian Art Now delves into the uniquely Norwegian style of neo-romanticism in contemporary art. The exhibition will bring together a multi-generational group of visual, performance, sound, and video artists to explore a fascination with darkness that is inspired by mythology and a close relationship to nature. Curated by Christina Vassallo, the exhibition will take place during The Armory Show, March 5 – 8, 2009. Darkness Descends is the fourth installment in a series of MAS*H shows produced by Cottelston Advisors to coincide with major art fairs.
