TYLER HILDEBRAND: THE RETIREMENT PARTY
David Lusk Gallery Memphis / 97 Tillman , Memphis , TN July 5, 2017 - July 29, 2017
Tyler Hildebrand returns to DLG Memphis this spring for The Retirement Party, his third solo show. In his graphic, large-scale mixed media works, Hildebrand addresses the gross abundance of commodification, repetition, and convenience in today’s society.
Hildebrand’s sectioned, rough, and brightly colored mixed media pieces incorporate adaptations of celebrities, cartoon collages, and sketches of daily rituals that weave together a story that is crude and seemingly ridiculous -- not unlike the average American’s.
