DISCO DILETTANTE 

The Hold Artspace, Brisbane, QLD, 26-29 March 2014

The Disco Dilettante delights in the superficial nature of all things seductive, shiny and fantastic. This exhibition of recent work considers the elements that make up the glamourous, excessive popular culture of the 70s. The work explores how materials that use the illusionistic qualities of light, as well as certain designs and bright colours from that era, can echo experiences of the discothèque.
