      Southern Gothic: Intersections of Art and Literature in the Johnson Collection

       

      From Edgar Allen Poe's haunting tale of The Gold Bug (1843) to Flannery O'Connor's biting short story "Good Country People" (1955), the Southern Gothic literary tradition has exhumed the American South's aberrations, contradictions, and unique sense of dark humor. Drawing exclusively from the Johnson Collection, Southern Gothic examines how nineteenth-and twentieth-century artists borrowed from their literary peers, using a potent visual language to address the tensions between the South's idyllic visions and its historical realities.This exhibition is guest curated by Elizabeth Driscoll Smith, a Ph.D. candidate from the University California, Santa Barbara, and the Johnson Collection's 2019 graduate fellow.
