bling-bling

69 - Printemps / été 2010

Theme:
Excess, exuberance, cheap knockoffs, and kitsch have literally invaded pop culture. Symptomatic of the trend, the term bling-bling seems especially suited for dealing with these artistic productions. First connected with hip-hop, the term has been taken up either to describe some conspicuous behaviour on the art scene, or to qualify works that employ overstated, flashy materials. The approach to bling-bling taken in this issue then, while offering an analysis of its particular aesthetics, affords varied reflections on different so-called “bling-bling” attitudes in contemporary society.

Including the portfolios of Miguel Luciano, Agus Suwage and Dominique Sirois.
