Kinky Tribal Disco

ArtPipe Events Filed Under:


“Kinky Tribal Disco” flirts with elements of the exotic in the language of contemporary art in order to present a negotiation between the global and the local, the familiar with the new, and the instant with the immutable.

By integrating aesthetic effect with traditional form the exhibition promotes cultural eclecticism - a defining condition of this information age with worldwide economic networks. Hence, the challenge of the exhibit is acknowledging native impressions while not being subsumed by universal standards. Or, the opposite is also problematized: those that stress fundamental ideals immersed in misguided social education turning away from progressive thinking and new material developments. Both are critical considerations pondered in this exhibition as a way of reframing social representation and various expressions of autonomy amidst a world of exuberant change. Therefore, “Kinky Tribal Disco” is a multi-media exhibition that features painting, photography, and installation looking at native expression as a catalyst for innovation and reflection. Eschewing conceptual clichés, the works apply wit in the exploration of self-conscious identity, while stylistic primitivism is brandished as a reflexive foil against formal conventionality. “Kinky Tribal Disco” is an awareness of the essential through unorthodox means.
