Sven A. Kirsten invites You to contemplate:

THE CONTEMPORARY IDOL –
PRIMITIVE ART IN THE MODERN HABITAT



This exhibition pays homage to the enduring relationship between primitivism and modernism in the 20th Century. Not only was the inception of modern art inspired by the tribal arts, but beginning in the 50s, it became en vogue to juxtapose modernist environs with “primitive” carvings and wallhangings. One could even speak of a form of “anti-modernism”, the need to balance the antiseptic, clean lines of modern design with objects from the other end of the art spectrum, thus forming a Yin and Yang of esthetics.



I am happy to announce that this exhibit will open in conjunction with a solo show of new works by Bosko!



It will be a smashing opening for Modernism Week in Palm Springs!

Any participating artists, please feel free to post advance glimpses of your work for the show here.

Fantastic, one more reason to leave early and get my snaps of Bombay Beach and Salton City and environs done so I can get into the Springs in time for this!

Sounds like an amazing show !!

But those high-brow modernists... Are they afraid to use the "T" word ??

No, but to call this show a "Tiki" show would be limiting in this case: In my prompts for the artists I included African and abstract modern examples. Yes, this show will have a lot Oceanic art-inspired pieces in it, but the theme is more general mid-century modern "primitive art" than purely Polynesian pop Tiki.
