SUPERSTITIONS

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Historically, superstitions are cultivated to explain and control the unknown. Odd behaviors to dictate a favorable fate and good fortune are passed down from generation to generation. Trust in magic, chance and the supernatural keep these practices alive and permanently seeded in our subconscious.

This July, artists Dianne Hoffman and Shane Izykowski present a duo show at Art Attack SF featuring 13 new works, each based on culturally diverse urban or folk customs that surround the prophecy of luck. Dianne’s uncanny depictions using assembled found objects are complimented by Shane’s unsettling narration of realistic characters in beautifully executed oil paintings. The exhibit will include interactive elements for viewers to physically engage with, playfully testing their own superstitious beliefs.

Today mythology and omens are overshadowed by technology and science. Yet few people can deny the practice of a favorite superstition. Join us for an experience of credulous reverence to Superstitions.
