This show is all about the human head. From abstract to baroque, comical to menacing, these representations, created by a wide variety of artists, offer fresh insight into the symbolic power of the ole’ noggin.
The title of this show refers to the wariness that we expect children to harbor for unfamiliar faces, a notion that says more about our vulnerabilities as adults than it says about the perils of childhood. And in an era when we, as a people, are struggling to recognize who we are, paired with an unprecedented time of imperative physical distance that can easily determine life or death, Stranger Danger shows us just how vulnerable we’ve become.
