Cafe Morte are curating an exhibition to showcase creative responses to themes of mortality, loss, absence, grief, immortality, transience, endings, transgressions, death, memorial, ritual, mourning and resurrection. The exhibition will run at the same time as a symposium organised by MOTH (a graphic design research group) where invited guest speakers Stephen Cave, Dr Tony Walter and Joe Macleod will be presenting their research in this field.
We hope that the response to the open call will include a wide range of practitioners from different fields and be made up of artists, writers, musicians, architects, performers, film makers and fine artists. The exhibition will form a platform for discussions to take place addressing some of the often tabooed issues of death in creative practice.
