The term 'cultural hegemony' has often been employed to describe the assimilation into, or displacement by, one system of cultural reference by another.

About

The term 'cultural hegemony' has often been employed to describe the assimilation into, or displacement by, one system of cultural reference by another. From antiquity to the present day, a more concerted observation reveals less an agonistic process of competing narratives and mythologies but rather a layering of symbol systems which synthesizes through a process of interaction and dialogue. Abstracted Mythologies aims to replicate this process of transcultural synthesis through staging a similar dialogue of multiple cultural perspectives through the medium of visual art, exploring not only the interactions between foundational systems of reference but also highlighting comparative modes of visual transposition, ranging from the non-objective to allusive figuration. 

Engaging artists active throughout Europe and beyond, the initial exhibition will take place at the 5th Base Gallery, Whitechapel, London in Autumn 2016 with planned follow-on exhibitions in Copenhagen, Athens, and New York. Following the initial exhibition in London, follow-on iterations will potentially be under the sponsorship of the European Arts Research Network (EARN).

The exhibition will include the following artists:

Michael Delacruz (US)

Maria Glyka (GR)

Steffen Levring (DK)

Janne Malmros (DK)
Sarah McNulty (US)

Robert Phillips (UK)

Pippa Ridley (UK)
Vassilis Vlastaras (GR)
