DANIEL GONZALEZ | Pimp Art History Mar 13 - Apr 3, 2010
What happens when art history is experienced and soaked in everyday life? Grandma’s jewelry hanging on an old painting becomes a votive offering for style, an intimate ritual of embellishment and appropriation in a healthy familiarity with art history. Pimp Art History is a maquillage of ideas, concepts that take shape through the historic practices of handicraft.
Sewn sequins and images enriched with style by adding rhinestones and bijoux, are glam representations of intense moments and desires where the classic and the contemporary live together in the groomed, adorned and embellished artwork's body.
THE SHOW MUST GO ON
