Bride of Monster is a small-group exhibition featuring wild and woolly new interpretations of female monsters from film, folklore, and mythology.
Creativity Explored 2 Studio Manager E. Francis Kohler curated this exhibition, which he hopes will provoke thought about the historical relationship between representations of monsters and people with disabilities. Bride of Monster is a long-coming third installment of the 2003 exhibition, Monster, and two years later, Revenge of Monster. “It’s been 12 years, and I thought it might be kind of fun to revisit monsters and disability – this time, complicating the theme by adding the layer of women, another group that has been historically oppressed."
With works ranging from a series of repurposed mannequin heads to bold, graphic renderings of yōkai from Japanese folklore, Bride of Monster is a must-see this October.
Featured artists include Christina Marie Fong, Thomas Pringle, Yukari Sakura, Gerald Wiggins, and Richard Wright.
