William Mortensen | INVISIBLE HOUSE | DARK MOFO

An INVISIBLE HOUSE event, curated by Brendan Walls for Dark Mofo 2018. Presented by Dark Mofo, Salamanca Arts Centre, and Stephen Romano Gallery.

Grotesque and visionary photographic creations from William Mortensen, the man Ansel Adams once called ‘the Antichrist’.

Loaned to us by the Stephen Romano Gallery, these thirty works have never been exhibited before.

Presented by Stephen Romano Gallery (New York). This is an exhibition of 30 photographic works by William Mortensen to be exhibited in a purpose-built temporary gallery within the Long Gallery at Salamanca Arts Centre.

Mortensen is a controversial figure in 20th century photography. His pictorialist style of manipulating photographs to produce romanticist painting-like effects earned him criticism from photographers of the modern realist movement, in particular, Ansel Adams. However, Mortensen’s visionary work has finally received the recognition it deserves with a recent series of extensive retrospectives. The collection provided by the Stephen Romano Gallery has never been seen before and is a world exclusive.

EXHIBITION DATES:
Thursday 14 – Monday 25 June 2018

OFFICIAL OPENING EVENT: 
Thursday 14 June 2018, 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Exhibition to be opened by Stephen J King

Stephen J King is a leading authority on the British mystic, magician, poet and philosopher, Aleister Crowley.  He regularly lectures internationally on Crowley’s system of “Magick,” initiatic Orders, and revealed religious tradition of Thelema.  Stephen is presently editing Crowley’s last book, Magick Without Tears, for the Crowley estate.  Under his religious name “Shiva,” Stephen is the Australian National Grand Master General ad vitam of the fraternal Thelemic Order, Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO), once led by Crowley.  A member of OTO for 30 years, he has been collaborating, co-creating and generally getting up to mystical mischief and mayhem with Australian artist-magician Barry William Hale for about the same length of time.
