WHEN : 1st June, 6:00 – 8:00pm
WHERE : POP Gallery12 Ipswich Road Woolloongabba, Brisbane
In a fast moving world we are distanced from our immediate experiences and objectify the present as a thing to be re-constructed. Today’s nowstalgic culture of self-promotion, “update” value and the digitization of all aspects of everyday life is alternately embraced, rejected and commented upon by artists. The intervention of nowstalgic values and practices on our perception of the world manifests itself in works from pixelated aesthetics through to strange hybridisations and poignant self-portraits. Artists mourn the present as already past and question the glossy façade of consumerism and popular culture.
