From Keijsers Koning:
“Keijsers Koning is pleased to present “A Path Less Traveled” a joint exhibition of two Dallas galleries: Joel Cooner Gallery and Keijsers Koning. On view will be historical ethnographic works in combination with contemporary art.
Both galleries have a unique sensibility and esthetic approach creating the opportunity for the viewer to experience art that may be “a path less travelled.” Inspired by the outlier exhibition “Primitivism,” initiated by Andre Breton, and revisited many times there-after, respective gallery owners Joel and Bart’s ferocity for objects, established a shared conversation through these art works.
The unique ensemble of Oceanographic, African, and South-East Asian objects, strike a discourse with the contemporary to reveal a visceral drive in the act of making. Beyond all the formal discourse, theories, histories there lies a timeless human drive that ignites the act of making to express and in turn relate. Joel and Bart, two unique voices in Dallas, are excited to share this unique experience.
The contemporary artists, who are featured in the exhibition are; Jon Ashcraft, Rush Baker IV, Brent Birnbaum, Jimi Dams, Jeff Grant, Tamara Johnson, Kris Pierce, and Natalie Westbrook.
The historical objects presented will range from South Pacific, Oceanographic, African to Latin America.
The Joel Cooner Gallery specializes in important Tribal, Asian, Oceanic, Pre-Columbian and Ancient artworks. They cater to the discerning collector and search the world for pieces with cultural significance and a distinctive presence.
Keijsers Koning is an international, contemporary art gallery presenting emerging and established artists. With the gallery’s program we like to push the boundaries and create a space that allows for unconventional ideas to be expressed, explored, and enjoyed.
