TROPICAL CONTEMPORARY PRESENTS: TEENYBOPPER
A Teenybopper is a young girl who follows Pop Music to distract herself from the dullness of school and authority. For artists making work, following art idols is our own way to distract ourselves from the numbing and sometimes overwhelming world we attempt to survive in. The coming of age journey from teenagedom to adulthood is one we’re told ends at successful adultness. The implication of adultness as being emotionally and socially more stable is a fantasy for most.
This show encompasses a threshold moment an evolution from amateur to professional. The work in this show reflects that change, but acknowledges the apathy and anxiety that accompanies the shifting sands of artistic adulthood.
Tropical Contemporary in partnership with Eugene Contemporary Art is ecstatic to announce Teenybopper, a group show featuring eight Eugene-based artists. The exhibition is the first for Tropical Contemporary with the help of Eugene Contemporary Art. This show will present a diverse range of video, painting, drawing, and sculpture.
