Natalie Frank at the Drawing Center
Natalie Frank's new show, The Brothers Grimm, opens at the Drawing Center on Friday. The grotesque and underlying sexuality of fairy tales has been purged out of literature by the corporations of the childhood industry. Frank reinvigorates narrative by delving deep into these fairy tales and capture what she calls the parallel poles of longing and desire but also disgust and fascination that constitute humanity.
