Abstracted Mythologies is the first in a series of exhibitions to be held in London, Copenhagen, Athens and New York exploring the visual dialogue between alternative forms of cultural narrative. Curated by Michael Delacruz

About

ABSTRACT MYTHOLOGIES - Transposing Cultural Memory into the Visual Present.

The term 'cultural hegemony' has often been used to describe the assimilation into, or displacement by, one system of cultural reference by another. From antiquity to the present day, closer observation reveals less a contest of competing narratives and mythologies than a layering of symbol systems 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 differing 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 Winter 2016 with planned follow-on exhibitions in Copenhagen, Athens, and New York.
