Frist Center Curator Mark Scala Breaks Down Fairy Tales, Monsters, and the Genetic Imagination

Posted By on Fri, Mar 16, 2012 at 3:43 PM

We've written a bit on the Frist's exhibit Fairy Tales, Monsters and the Genetic Imagination — a Critic's Pick here, an Installation View (lots of photos!) there — and we've even peeked at what other people are saying about it. (Some people seem to think it's "disgusting.") In this video, Frist curator Mark Scala gives his explanation of how the exhibit came together, and what he thinks the point is of focusing on the grotesque possibilities of hybridized bodies and composite lifeforms.
