Inspired by the collection of Susan Hancock, this exhibition reflects the interests of an international group of artists over the past ten years, taking as its theme, fairy tales, and it's contemporary expression, fantasy.

The Never Ending Story: Fairytale, Fantasy, Obsession focuses on the singular trait that can be identified in a vast majority of contemporary art produced in the U.S., Europe, and Asia over the past decade, which is a renewed interest in narrative and the depiction of recognizable objects to tell a story. The exhibit draws on the Surrealist tradition, but also equally important, on popular cultural traditions, including book illustrations and comics, showcasing contemporary artists who create works that are accessible and familiar, yet at the same time, gothic and out-of-the-ordinary.

The Never Ending Story's curator, Laura Hoptman, is Senior Curator of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, NY.

Royal/T Cafe says, "We are expecting a large volume of people so i would get here promptly at 6 pm to be sure. we won't be turning anyone away at the door, but if we are over capacity, there may be a short wait due to fire safety codes."

DISCLAIMER: As you know, we here at the Social Detective Agency like to live dangerously. As a result, sometimes things don't always go as expected at these events. So if something should go wrong, give the venue a bad rating. But give the event 5 stars! :-)
