Andrew Edlin Gallery is proud to present "We Shall Make America Wonder", a group exhibition featuring the art of Joe Coleman, Felipe Jesus Consalvos, Henry Darger and Duke Riley.

These four visionaries are each eminent cartographers of latent lands, where the unimaginable is fully imagined and otherness is not only recognizable but relatable. Their worlds apart are built up with a richness 

of minutiae, an internal logic that allows the irrational to ring true.

For some of these artists God is in the details, for others it is likely the devil. Collectively, we can see them as embroiderers of some quilt-like map of all the madness, superstition, faith, desire and dread festering within the American psyche.
