Existential Slapstick: An Interview with HALFLIFERS

Gallery 400's current exhibition, I THINK WE'RE READY TO GO TO THE NEXT SEQUENCE: THE LEGACY OF HALFLIFERS, will be on view through June 22. Curatorial Assistant Karen Greenwalt recently got the opportunity to speak with Torsten Zenas Burns and Anthony Discenza, the collaborative team that makes up HALFLIFERS. In the resulting interview, Greenwalt learned what HALFLIFERS is, what inspires Burns and Discenza, what underscores the collaborative's interest in speculative fiction and zombies, and much more.
Karen Greenwalt is currently a PhD student in the art history program at UIC and a Curatorial Assistant at Gallery 400.
