(2017 alum) Daniel Handal'Final Girls and Other Work will be shown at ClampArt Gallery in NYC, October 29 - December 19, 2020. ClampArt Gallery is located at 247 West 29th Street, NYC. A reception will be held on Thursday, October 29th, 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm 

According to Handal, "Horror movies reflect the social anxieties of our time and are directly linked to cultural preoccupations such as religious, social and technological developments. With Final Girls, I focus on a slice of culture that played a role in the zeitgeist of the time that I’ve come of age: horror movies from the 70s and 80s. The project is an exploration into popular culture and uses color to infuse it with new meaning and interpretation. At the heart of it, the series is about the tenacity of the human spirit and our ability to confront tough obstacles. Each Final Girl symbolizes our own battles and inspires us to believe, that no matter how difficult, we are able to overcome great challenges." 

Established in 2000, ClampArt is located in the Flower District in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. ClampArt represents a wide range of emerging and mid-career artists of all media with a specialization in photography. In addition, the gallery carries a large selection of modern and contemporary paintings, prints, and photographs from the early 20th century to the present.


Congratulations Daniel!
