The Neo-Victorians: Contemporary Artists Revive Gilded-Age Glamour — An Exhibition

The Neo-Victorians: Contemporary Artists Revive Gilded-Age Glamour, is an exhibition that explores a resurgence of interest over the last decade in ornamental lushness, with works of art that conceal pointed social commentary beneath seductive surface techniques. More than 20 contemporary artists whose work is inspired by the aesthetics of the 19th century have shaped, molded, and transformed these ideas to reflect today’s concerns, commenting on gender roles and societal tensions under the guise of the overt beauty. The Neo-Victorians will encourage audiences both familiar and unfamiliar with the Gilded Age to look at the growing group of contemporary artists imbued with a “Victorian aesthetic,” and to recognize how visual influences of the past continue to shape art in the present day.
