Hosted by UTA artist space, the art exhibition explores over a decade of functional art from 24 artists from Carpenters Workshop Gallery’s program, creating a dialogue between space, time, and contemporary archaeology. Based on the concept of archeofuturism, which focuses on excavating forms of the past in order to shape future narratives of design, ‘Dark Fantasy’ guides the viewer through a whimsical world of the fantastic and the obscure.
