The Hole Art Gallery is presenting a group exhibition that will feature works from Aisling Hamrogue, Andie Dinkin, Brittany Shepherd, and more, curated by Brooke Wise. 

The gallery maintains that this group exhibition delves into the enigmatic realms of the uncanny, the provocative, and fantasy. As stated in the press release, “Inspired by Jeffrey Sconce’s exploration in Haunted Media, viewers are invited to navigate the familiar turned unfamiliar – a chilling breeze on a dark night, stirring primal fears and unsettling perceptions of reality.” The Hole plans to have viewers confront the murky waters of the uncanny valley in all its eerie glory. 

The gallery emphasizes that the exhibit transcends mere discomfort, venturing into the realms of the provocative and the fantastical. Their upcoming exhibit includes Andie Dinkin’s dream-like tables cape that traverses the blissful blur between the real and imagined, while also showcasing TM Davy’s pink Tiny Monster that pulls us further from the confines of reality and towards the paranormal. As stated in the press release, each artwork offers a unique exploration of the human experience.

While navigating through the exhibition, the gallery will showcase works that evoke spine-tingling seduction, provocative contemplation on societal taboos, and fantastical journeys into the unknown. As stated in the press release, this exhibit will be ‘a captivating exploration of the darker recesses of the human psyche as famously explored by Freud.’  The Hole also stated that they will tease internet imagery in Catherine Mulligan’s Influencer paired with Gray Wielebinski’s exploration of gender roles, masculinity and consumer culture, which contextualizes the exhibition’s otherwise ambiguous era. These are just a few of the key pieces that will be showcased by the gallery, as explained in the exhibition press release. 

Brooke Wise, an independent curator based in New York, NY, and Los Angeles, CA, curated this exhibit. As the gallery has mentioned, Wise curates for galleries, spaces, and foundations internationally. She is often recognized for her charitable art ventures and unconventional curatorial projects, and has also collaborated with esteemed institutions such as the Tom of Finland Foundation, Ali Forney Center, and the New York MTA system.
