Memento mori @ 2 Rivington
January 19, 2019 | 6 – 9 pm
Memento mori (Latin: “remember death”) is the theory and practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.
Our group exhibit will showcase the work of dozens of prominent artist’s personal explorations of this theme. Award-winning artists include Marshall Arisman, George Pratt, Leslie Cober-Gentry, Katherine Streeter, Jason Limon, Gary Taxali, Anthony Freda, Victor Stabin, Noah Scalin, Kevin Champeny, Zoltron, and Chris Buzelli.
Skull imagery looms large throughout art history, from the Aztecs to Damien Hirst. This show will present a unique and exciting collection. We see this theme as an affirmation of life, and not a celebration of death.
