Vernacular Cultures and Contemporary Art from Australia, India and the Philippines
Curated as part of La Trobe University’s 2011 Festival of Ideas, this exhibition features contemporary artists whose work incorporates expressions of indigenous and/or locally specific popular cultures. Examining diverse practices that engage themes including surf culture, tattoo designs, informal architectural and colloquial language, the exhibition asks how contemporary artists remobolise vernacular cultures to interrogate and mediate the cultural ethics of globalisation.
