Halloween is coming early to Corey Helford Gallery. In honor of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, over 100 artists will debut never-before-seen works paying homage to the iconic monster in a group show of the same name. For two centuries, the story of Frankenstein has enthralled people all over the world, with the creature incarnating in every medium from classic cinema to comic books, plays, toys and more. In paintings, sculptures and screen prints, artists from around the world will exhibit their unique takes on the iconic monster, whose story is often equated to the creative process itself.

“In 1818, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was published. Now 200 years later and after dozens of incarnations, we are still celebrating a novel that makes us ponder about life, science, love, and death,” explains curator Chogrin. “It is the quintessential story of creator and creation, which is why I think many artists and scientists are immediately attracted to it.”

Chogrin’s call for artists has attracted no shortage of responses from all over the globe.

“As an artist I can relate to both the creature and his creation,” says Chogrin. “Specifically, Frankenstein's monster, as artists tend to be misunderstood creatures as well. Frankenstein is a world-wide pop-culture icon, which is another reason why I was so excited in putting this show together at Corey Helford Gallery. One of things I love the most in putting together these massive group shows is to see how artists from around the world interpret a specific subject matter… and with Frankenstein it is no different. All in all, it is with great pleasure to pay tribute to the most (and my favorite) sympathetic and misunderstood monster of all time, thanks to the amazing heart and mind of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.”

Frankenstein will open Saturday, September 8 with an opening reception from 7pm - 11pm. The reception is open to the public and the exhibit will be on view through October 13. The space is open Tuesday - Saturday, 12pm - 6pm. Corey Helford Gallery is located at 571 S. Anderson St. Los Angeles, CA 90033.
