Phantasmania examines a distinct undercurrent in today’s artistic consciousness that is a response to today’s pervasive climate of war, globalization, and rise of mediated information and experience. Displaying a proclivity toward escapism and a return to materiality (both of which share conceptual and aesthetic strategies rooted in Romanticism, Dada, and Surrealism), the exhibiting artists revert to interior worlds by creating narrative works influenced by fairy tales, dreams, mythologies, and personal and collective memories.
