Lost Symbols brings together the work of contemporary artists who investigate, dissect, appropriate, and translate mystic occult ritual, alchemy, mythology, and symbolism. The artists represented have each uniquely contributed their own individual interpretations of the theme through a diversity of mediums and artistic methodologies including, but not limited to: film, painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, performance, and sound-in site-specific installations. Programs include screenings and live performances involving ontology, fantasma, and phatasmagoria. Sound programs reference ritual, phenomenology, and transcendence.
Our aim for the exhibit, is to bring attention to the use of this specific symbolism in contemporary art and semiotics, and to bridge the more subdued pockets of history.
