From Beneath the Veil: Dark Art & Craft Show
From Beneath the Veil: Dark Art & Craft Show
The show, “From Beneath the Veil,” is inspired by the Spiritualism movement of the mid 19th and early 20th centuries. Spiritualism believed in the possibility of communing with the spirits of the dead by means of a living medium. A controversial movement, there are those who believe it was a total money-making parse, and many others who believed that these (mostly) women involved possessed ethereal capabilities to lift the veil. Spiritualism itself also empowered a lot of Victorian-era women, who otherwise would have had no money or sources of power of their very own outside of the men in their lives. This show will feature the work of those who do not identify as cis-men, a means of giving more space to other gender demographics in a predominantly male-dominated realm.
