UK's only annual Tribal Art Exhibition


Tribal Perspectives, London's only exhibition to focus on works of art from rapidly diminishing tribal cultures, opens to the public for five days from 28th September to 1st October 2011 at the neighboring Galleries 27 and 28 Cork Street, Mayfair, London, W1S 3NG. This well-established group show has an international following, and was first launched in 2007. Tribal Perspectives features eight leading galleries from around the globe, each a specialist in the art and cultural artefacts of peoples from Africa to Oceania. This multi-cultural event offers an unique selling exhibition of precious objects, combined with lectures by leading authorities. Tribal Perspectives seeks to offer an insight in to and an understanding of the rituals and historic customs of tribal peoples, many of whose way of life is rapidly coming under threat, if not already subsumed in to a homogenized world of ‘development'. Tribal influences are never far from mainstream fashion and contemporary art. Artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Braque and Modigliani were inspired by these cultures, whilst today they are appreciated and their artefacts collected by the likes of David Attenborough, the designer John Rocha and the well-travelled TV presenter and author Griff Rhys Jones. Exhibitors at Tribal Perspectives will include: ”¢ JOE de BUCK (Belgium) - Tribal art ”¢ BRYAN REEVES (UK) - African tribal art ”¢ OWEN HARGREAVES (UK — African tribal art ”¢ CHARLES VERNON-HUNT BOOKS (UK) - Art books ”¢ CHRIS BOYLAN (Australia) - Tribal art from PNG and Oceanic ”¢ ADAM PROUT (UK) - Tribal art and objects from around the world ”¢ LOUIS NIERIJNCK (Holland)- Asian, Oceanic and African tribal art ”¢ CLIVE LOVELESS (UK) - Abstract tribal artefacts from Africa and Oceania Tribal Perspectives is supported by Tribal Arts Magazine and HALI the specialist textile magazine.
