New work by Nicholas Aloisio-Shearer
23rd February – 13th March, 2022
TCB is pleased to announce ‘Reject Modernity, Embrace Tradition II: I Have Been In This Place Before’ an exhibition by Nicholas Aloisio-Shearer.
‘Reject Modernity, Embrace Tradition II: I Have Been In This Place Before’ has been summoned by the libidinal energy of the internet and the memetic erotics of its images and folklore. In the quest to uncover the affective connections between Western art history and regressive, networked cultures, this exhibition presents tapestries full of anachronisms. Incels, Infowars and biblical allegories come together in this apocalyptic convergence of the computational logic of image production, dispersion and desire.

Both TCB and the artist would like to acknowledge the people of the Kulin Nations as the traditional custodians of the land on which they live and work, recognising the Wurundjeri and Bunurong peoples’ enduring connection to land, waters and community. They pay their respects to Elders past, present and future.
