‘Art is dead… yeah it’s all messed up.’
Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated is a mass collaborative artistic re-envisioning of George A. Romero’s 1968 cult classic, Night of the Living Dead.
International artists and animators were invited to select scenes from the film and reinvent them through their artwork.

BIOS AND QUOTES
NOTLD:R Organizer/ Curator Mike Schneider bio and quote:
Organizer/ Curator, Mike Schneider, finds himself at the crossroads between fine arts and mass media. Shown and cataloged as a 2D, 3D and Video artist, Schneider is not bound to any specific medium or process. With a background including education, curation, fabrication, animation, production, and human research, his work has been described as, ‘thinking of abstracts and searching for their edges.’ Stylistically, his approach to art is noted as being in the neoflux style (art through networking) and over the years has had well over 250,000 people participate in the creation of his projects.
Ever questioning the white box, Schneider has turned from the curation of space to the curation of time. Taking existing public domain content and reconstituting them as gallery space: every scene becomes a wall to hang work on, the audio functions as the space’s ambiance, and the original media serves as the conceptual theme which holds the projects together as shows through the very diverse works by the international artists involved.
Artist Statement: ‘If it were easy, everyone would do it. If everyone would do it, it would be easy.’
In response to NOTLD:R, Schneider says: ‘I’ve curated galleries before… Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated was my first museum.’
This project features the works of hundreds of artists from around the world.
