Dream or Nightmare


DREAM OR NIGHTMARE 

DECEMBER 2, 2016 - JANUARY 15, 2017

Dream or Nightmare is a national call for work of any media that explores the joys and terrors that we encounter in a dreamlike-state. The underlying narrative present in dreams can be wonderous or deeply unpleasant. Artworks should consider the tension between delightful and disconcerting. From representational works to those bordering surrealism, this exhibition will survey the dualistic nature of our dreams.

Dream or Nightmare will be on view at (SCENE) Metrospace, an urban gallery in East Lansing, MI from December 2, 2016 through January 15, 2017. The only required criteria is that works must engage either materially or conceptually with the prompt to be interpreted as dreamlike and/or nightmarish.
