Dead Eden presents painting, sculpture, and video by fourteen artists, many from Europe who have never exhibited in the United States previously.

Eden is a mythical place, a utopia lost, an idea of nature corrupted by human fallibility. The exhibition Dead Eden examines sex, death, and violence against the conception of the edenic state, questioning whether it ever existed or if, in fact, nature contains a worm corrupting it from inside. At a time of political instability, rising fascism and the debasement of the natural world, Thanatos and Eros loom darkly.
