+ Also coming March 7 & 8: PURGATORY IV FILM EXHIBITION +
n October 30th through November 1st 2014 in Detroit comes an extraordinary assemblage of artists from across this world to display their most introspective creations at DAMNED – An Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness. From the infamous to the freshest of local and international talent, this prodigious congregation will allow us a glimpse within the diverse shadows of id and ego…of overall mind and encompassing soul guaranteed to intrigue, disturb, inspire or repulse. Rising from within the ashes of the historic institution of Devil’s Night, this is not Halloween-themed art but an immersion within the immeasurable realms of consciousness through an elegant ambiance of live strings and cirque/butoh-inspired performances.
There are 3 nights of DAMNED, each with its own distinct theme for the ambiance and performances that surround the exhibition…”The Darkness” (10/30), “The Enlightenment” (10/31) and “The Masquerade” (11/01). Each night also holds various unique features which include a VIP Preview with Artist Reception, a formal absinthe tasting courtesy of Kübler Blanche Absinthe, an elegant aphrodisiac-inspired dinner, a formal mask-mandatory masquerade ball, a lush Moroccan-inspired VIP mezzanine overlooking the gallery, a gallery store to purchase art, our Devil Girl hostesses and more.
