Within our global village of media connections, hybrids are everywhere: from the boundary-crossing blend of meticulously hyper-realistic paintings with broad gestural brush strokes, geometric figures built up from soft and sinuous lines, gothic images infused with street art influences, contemporary fashion inspired by vintage, and viral internet mash-ups of hip-hop or rock sampling classic soul, to masculine balancing feminine, west meeting east, and north encountering south. Todays hybrid art forms draw on the tenets of Dada-ism and the Punk DIY cut-and-paste aesthetic, rejecting divisions between artistic mediums and combining painting, sculpture, collage, photomontage, photography, poetry, typography, dance, music, and cinema for enhanced creative tension. Crossing is a rich examination of successful merging, sampling, and mixing of genres and styles that are often diverse, eclectic, or contradictory, and features a stellar collection of work by artists such as Usugro, Stefan Sagmeister, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Jeff Soto, Mel Kadel, Bruno 9LI, James Jean, Mike Giant, Steven Harrington, Herakut, and Shepard Faireyeach vividly expressing their unique identity in new ways.
