AAC at Avenue 50: Hellmouth

Hellmouth, organized by Leonard Greco

October 14 – November 4, 2017

Opening October 14, 7 – 10 pm, during NELA Second Saturday.

“Many a morning I awaken with a fiery knot in the pit of my stomach. It frequently feels we are living in dire times and I know many share my dread. That being the case I’ve invited a few friends to jump right into the Hellmouth and showcase works that explore the depths of existential angst. The results are poignant, beautifully charged and frequently quite amusing. Please join us on October 14th 2017 as we skewer the Hellmouth.

The artists I’ve invited are:
Jodi Bonassi
Jeanie Frias
Jeff Iorillo
Tom Lasley
Randi Matushevitz
Dakota Noot
Dania Strong
…and yours truly.

Upon receiving the submissions I’ve been struck with how the artists of Hellmouth are poets of the shadows, frequently committed to exploring the dark existential crevices of being. More sensible artists may resist this oracle’s call, but like Orpheus these seekers cannot resist that final backwards glance.”
