Institution Walker Art Center

The Walker Art Center's exhibition Midnight Party explores a wide range of artworks that are highly subjective and open to interpretation.

Artists have many reasons for creating a work of art. Sometimes artists make artworks inspired by the physical world around them, and other creations come from their imagination and things that can't be seen.

The artists represented in this show found their inspiration in the subconscious corners of their mind.  Many of the artworks in Midnight Party are surreal, and appear as if they came from a dream. The people, places, and events shown may be very different than real life.
