Gorey & the Bard

March 2016 through Spring Semester

(From the Exhibit Introduction)

Edward Gorey (1925-2000) is an artist and author "whose name increasingly serves as a shorthand for a postmodern twist on the gothic that crosses irony, high camp, and black comedy" (Dery). In 2010, the University of Hawai'i Art Gallery and the UH Manoa Library collaborated on an exhibit based on the John Carollo-Edward Gorey Collection at the UHM Library. Six years later, to coincide with the O'ahu visit of the first folio edition of William Shakespeare's works, we're revisiting the collection to explore the intersections of Edward Gorey and the Bard.

Although only a tiny fraction of the over 1,800 items in the John Carollo-Edward Gorey Collection, the pieces on display here serve as a fascinating entry point into many facets of Gorey's work and influence.
