Director Darren Aronofsky's Art Exhibit 'Fountains of the Deep: Visions of Noah and the Flood' Opens in New York City
Published: March 7, 2014 - 4:02pm
Noah is an adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood.
Subject to divine visions foretelling the end of the world, Noah attempts to tell his people to cease their mistreatment of the earth in order to be saved. No one listens to his warnings, and Noah and his family are cast out to fend for themselves in the wilderness. Noah approaches a race of giant six-armed angels known as the Watchers to rally them to his cause.
Darren Aronofsky has put together a new art exhibit titled 'Fountains of the Deep: Visions of Noah and the Flood' that features work created by acclaimed artists Ugo Rondinone, Sue Williams, Karen Kilimnik, Mike Nelson Nan Goldin, Jim Lee, Jim Woodring, Simon Bisley and Faile spotlighting the famous biblical story and the director's upcoming film. The exhibit opened last night and will run through March 29th at 462 West Broadway in New York City's Soho neighborhood.
