Folk Horror - Curated by Indigo Rawson-Smith

Folk Horror is a group exhibition curated by Indigo Rawson-Smith. This show is an ode to the Folk Horror film genre, and a celebration of the old world lore, beliefs, characters and creatures which inspire it.

Opening reception: Saturday, May 27th, 6 - 9pm. Drinks will be provided by our friends at Jetty Road Brewery and Malocchio.

This exhibition will run from May 28th - June 18th and will coincide with Erika Sanada & Calvin Ma's Hand in Hand, Nom Kinnear King's The Yarrows and Robert Duxbury's Waves of Lament
