PSFK recently attended Mighty Tanakas opening reception for an exhibition titled Hybridism: Where Raw Meets Refined. The show took place at their new Dumbo Gallery in Brooklyn, and spotlighted a growing creative movement which blends street and fine art.
Alex Emmart, the curator and owner of Mighty Tanaka, has articulated Hybridism as a reaction to the “Everything that can be done, has been done” mentality. It can be considered a collage of ideas, as artists communities borrow and highlight techniques and theories from around the world, while always reflecting their own perceptions, ideas, and desires.
