Frankenstein’s Birthday Party @ Hosfelt

Justin Manley, Squarecylinder, July 20, 2018

Frankenstein’s Birthday Party, showing at Hosfelt Gallery through August 11, celebrates the 200-year anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s novel. The subject matter is heavy, and its combination of fantastical grotesques with artifacts of real-life atrocity requires fortitude and a morbid curiosity.  Determined visitors are rewarded with a show of first-rate artworks assembled with inspired curatorial vision.
