The Dunes presents Dystopia, featuring new works by Washington, D.C. based artists Dana Ellyn & Matt Sesow, who will be giving an artist talk at the "Take your Soma Happy Hour" this Saturday from 4:00pm - 6:00pm. From the invite: "Dystopia" is a two-person exhibition featuring recent paintings by DC artist couple Dana Ellyn and Matt Sesow. For "Dystopia" Ellyn and Sesow selected and created new works inspired by classic Dystopian novels, movies, and themes. Additionally, the couple has pulled from news and commentary sources such as Democracy Now, Russia Television, Al Jazeera, Alex Jones, and CSPAN. Some of the paintings are a re-imagining of a degraded and totalitarian future, while others offer a social commentary on current events. According to Ellyn and Sesow, the Dystopian future conjured within so much of classic literature turned out to be an accurate prediction of current events, politics, and perceived individual freedoms.
