About the concept:
The End Is Nigh explores the theme of death across history and culture. Through five sections dedicated to Allegories, Characters of Death, Wearables and Artifacts, Tombs and Memorials, and Omens and Science, we investigate the various ways death has inspired folklore and legend, shaped how we think of the afterlife, and how those left behind commemorate, memorialize, and assist those we've lost. This fully illustrated book includes an image from each of the 190+ participating artists along with information about their theme or concept. With over 120 pages of compelling, beautiful glimpses of the underworld, the afterlife, the deities and demons, and global perspectives on death, readers will enjoy the many facets of one of the most universal, yet mysterious parts of our world.
This book was produced in coordination with The End is Nigh exhibition at Light Grey Art Lab's Minneapolis gallery space, on display through the end of November 2021.
