Those of you looking for some post-work culture, look no farther. One of the must-see exhibitions this spring is Masters & Pelavin's new group show, Legend Tripping. Expect a thrilling variety of media—installation, mixed media, painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, collage—and a number of international artists.
Legend Tripping, also known as ostension, is actually an adolescent practice (containing elements of a rite of passage) in which a usually furtive nocturnal pilgrimage is made to a site that is alleged to have been the scene of some tragic, horrific, and possibly supernatural event or haunting. The legend trippers violate the tabooed site for the specific purpose of flirting with that danger.
Legend Tripping is on view from April 18 through June 1, 2013.
