“STARE: The Pleasures of the Intensely Familiar and the Strangely Unexpected”

It’s a deficiency of the English language that there’s no single word for “morbid curiosity,” the compulsion that makes humans slow down their cars as they pass accident scenes. It’s the pleasure of the intensely familiar and the strangely unexpected that is the fodder for “STARE,” a collaboration between artists and photographers from the U.S., France, Germany, and Africa who aim for “the singular moment when we cannot look away and we must continue looking.” So, appropriately enough, one of the works is a portrait of Michael Jackson.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 22. Continues through March 13, 2010
