Last Rites Gallery in New York recently opened its sixth annual exhibition, “The 13th Hour,” a huge group show that celebrates everything that viewers have come to love about Last Rites. Owner and founder Paul Booth is known for his penchant for art that makes the flesh crawl, and “The 13th Hour,” which, not coincidentally, opened the weekend before Halloween, does dark surrealism with finely-tuned subtlety. The show features a wide range of works that range from Pop-y to macabre, with artists like Tom Bagshaw, Chris Mars, David Stoupakis, Redd Walitzki and Yosuke Ueno. The show will be on view through December 7. Take a look at some opening night photos from “The 13th Hour” courtesy of Paola Duran.
