Room with a View: Modern and Tribal Art Side by Side

Tribal art seems poles apart from modern or contemporary art. One looks decidedly earthly, the other highly abstract. One evinces a palpable spiritual energy, the other a secular vibe. One evokes deep primal feelings, the other seldom does. Yet, when placed side by side, modern and tribal art not only can co-exist, it achieves a pleasing aesthetic harmony that is hard to explain. See it for yourself in today’s short video showcasing modern art alongside African, Oceanic and the North West Coast art. The contemporary works are by Korean artist, Sung Hee Cho whose art explores the essence of her identity through the complex relationship between colors and texture. The video is brought to you by Tambaran Gallery in New York (established 1979).
