Humble Arts Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of Things Are Strange, curated by Jon Feinstein. The group exhibition, which opens on Election Day, presents work by eighteen photographers whose images explores the peculiar, idiosyncratic and often absurd elements of the contemporary world, using them as a metaphor for the current state of social and political affairs. The work includes a range of subjects, from the bizarre phenomena of Emiliano Granado’s documentary pictures of ghost hunters and Cara Phillips’ transformation of plastic surgery machines into terrifying robots to Eric Percher’s exploration of the alienation of late night finance workers and Amy Stein’s images of stranded American travelers. Each photographer, by varying degrees, alludes to a world that is gradually falling apart at the seams.
