James G. Mundie featured in "Side Show" at Yale School of Art


The Yale School of Art’s 32 Edgewood Gallery presents Side Show, an exhibition about the intersection of fine art and the historical American popular entertainment world of the side show – in which the bodily display of the abnormal, human or animal, would be the focus of the event. Issues of race, ethnicity, gender and disability will be considered.  

Curated by Lisa Kereszi, the exhibition will be on view from January 13 through March 20, 2015.  A series of interesting events are planned around the show, including: performances by Ricky Jay, American Horror Story's Mat Fraser and Julie Atlas Muz, and Coney Island Island Sideshows by the Seashore; a panel discussion featuring Dick Zigun, Todd Robbins and Jennifer Miller; lectures by artists and others such as James Taylor of Shocked and Amazed; and workshops.
