Exhibition: Bomba


Paulo do Prado

Opening Friday 7th April 6-8pm
Exhibition runs Friday 7th – Saturday 22nd April 2017

AirSpace Projects, 10 Junction Street, Marrickville

Bomba literally translates from the Spanish to bomb or blast. It is a loaded word with multiple meanings and associations.

Inspired by Afro-Latin music, art and culture the artworks are made from a mix of humble materials: fabric samples, cloth remnants, paint and paper. The use of collage on fabric and paper relates to the traditions of ‘making do’ and the bringing together of seemingly disparate, unrelated and disjointed elements assembled together to create something new and cohesive.

In Afro-Uruguayan culture there are still strong links to superstition and the merging of Christian and West African religious beliefs. Lines become blurred and slippages occur between religion, magic, art, music, dance, ritual and ceremony.

The show is a celebration of cultural collisions and explosions, resistance and survival.

In conjunction with the exhibition there are several workshops available in both Afro-Latin dance and fabric collage.  Click here for full details and booking.
