Hansel and Gretel Never Looked Like This!

"Hansel and Gretel: Never Eat a House" is the theme for an exhibit at the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, 340 North Senate Avenue, Indianapolis.

In the classic German fairytale from the Brothers Grimm, a hungry Hansel and Gretel are lured to the witch’s house in hopes of a meal.

Until 10 January, iMOCA will feature fresh interpretations of characters from the fairytale from The New Yorker and by contemporary artists including Roz Chast, Ian Falconer, Ana Juan, Ed Koren and William Wegman from a New York show curated by the Gallery Met at the Metropolitan Opera.

The exhibition is part of collaboration with the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library and the Indianapolis Opera. iMOCA’s portion consists of modern takes on the dark tale.
