February 28 - May 2, 2020
Paris-based artist Raphaël Barontini uses photographic imagery on textiles to create installations that conjure spectacle, celebration and ritual. From large-scale colorful banners and flags to items of customized clothing, his vibrant printed fabric work combines pattern and portraiture that is both eye-catching and alluring. His juxtaposition of seductive surfaces – – playful fringe and tassels against silky drapery and soft leather – – creates a dynamic gallery environment that suggests performance and improvisation. Caribbean Fantasia runs February 28 – May 2, 2020 at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts and will open with a cowboy parade and reception for the artist on Friday, February 28th, from 6-8 p.m. Raphaël Barontini will give an artist talk in TCU’s Moudy North building, room 224, on Wednesday, February 26th, from 1-2pm.
