    Kitsch and Kulture Transition in South Florida Culture 1960-1990

    Kitsch and Kulture explores three decades of work by four exceptional artists that have left an indelible visual account of South Florida’s Kitsch Kulture of the 60-90’s era . The exhibition, co-curated by Rolando Chang Barrero and Sandra Schulman, opens with a reception on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 7 PM and continues through August 30th, 2017.

    While Odd Nerdrum’s manifesto on September 24, 1998 contextualized the Kitsch movement by declaring himself a “kitsch painter,” the diatribe between low and high art is still contentious at best. Although Kitsch art hassince become recognized as a style and movement in the arts, it is still largely considered low-brow among many intellectuals — seen primarily through a sentimental pane of melancholia created by the non-traditional artist. Ironically South Florida, which is currently at the top of the international fine art scene for quite some time now, has served as the bulwark of kitsch art and its accompanying culture for more than 25 years.
