If you’re in Edinburgh this weekend, make sure to attend the opening of The Joyful Bewilderment Part Deux at Analogue Books. Here are the details:
7-9pm, Saturday — March 28, 2009
Analogue Books 102 West Bow Edinburgh EH1 2H
Here’s a description of the exhibition by The Joyful Bewilderment:
“The Joyful Bewilderment is an international group exhibition showcasing the outpourings of a group of like minded image-makers. This exhibition can be seen as an expression of these artists compulsion to create. Fundamentally, the artists in the show all share an essential motivation to explore the possibilities of enhancing everyday life by making magic from the mundane.”
“[I]n various ways, the works offer a subconscious social commentary on the uncertainty of the times we are all living in. Specifically, what comes to the fore are common concerns and a positive interest with dipping into the past and championing seemingly long-forgotten notions such as thriftyness and a delight in the ordinary everyday detritus of life in order to counteract the context of a world today brimming with unwanted junk and jumble that has been manufactured for the transitory ‘now’.”
Super excited to check out the show! Thanks for the tip, Common Folk!
