"The Noah story belongs to all of us - every religion, every culture, every citizen of planet Earth. Now it is your turn: the story is yours to envision." At a gallery in SoHo on a cold March night in New York, Darren Aronofsky debuted a grand collection of art created by his friends and colleagues inspired by the Book of Genesis and the Story of Noah. This event celebrated the opening of the "Noah Art Show", organized in promotion for Aronofsky's latest movie, Noah, in theaters at the end of this month. The show is officially titled "Fountains of the Deep: Visions of Noah and the Flood" and we've previewed it already, but with the opening tonight we were invited to take a look inside this spectacular gallery of stunning, one-of-a-kind art.
The Fountains of the Deep art show opens at 462 West Broadway (Google Maps) on Friday, March 7th, 2014 and run for a few weeks, coinciding with the theatrical release of Noah on March 28th later that month. The gallery, spanning two entire floors, features work "in painting, in drawing, in photography, in sculpture" and in video, with little peep holes showing some awesome finished footage from the film. Artists include Ugo Rondinone, Sue Williams, Karen Kilimnik, Mike Nelson, Nan Goldin, Jim Lee, Robert Liefeld, Jim Woodring, Simon Bisley, graffiti duo Faile, James Jean, Ward Shelley, Simon Bisley, and many others.
We were invited to the early gallery preview opening tonight and wanted to present a quick first look inside the magnificent Noah Art Show. Included below are some photos as well as a sample of some of the art on display. It's also worth reading Aronofsky's introduction to the show and his take on Noah's story - see here.
