ZIC ZERP Gallery is pleased to announce The Archaic Revival, a group exhibition curated by Los Angeles-based artist Dani Tull.
The exhibition features mostly works on paper and smaller works by 35 established and emerging artists from Los Angeles, Portland, and Rotterdam whose works can be considered as manifestations of a burgeoning dialogue from within the collective subconscious of contemporary art. The artists in the exhibition use allegorical code, sacred plant knowledge, magic and an untethered glossolalia, while their works intuit mysticism, alchemy, fetishistic processes, prophecy, and even humor.
The artists of The Archaic Revival call upon their ancestors to find their footing into the future, a future that is undoubtedly becoming stranger and more uncertain. And as humanity ponders the possibility of its own extinction, we find ourselves reaching back through history and mythology to find a greater affinity with our own genesis. --Dani Tull
