Myth, Magic & Lore @ Bash Contemporary: Featuring Copycat Violence

“Myth must be kept alive. The people who can keep it alive are the artists of one kind or another.” – Joseph Campbell

On February 14, 2015, Bash Contemporary proudly presents Myth, Magic & Lore, a group exhibition sure to leave viewers in a state of enchantment. Piquing the imagination with a new collection of artwork, this highly anticipated event celebrates the distinctive styles and visual perspectives of artists from across the globe. From the historical ruins of legendary creatures to the modern notions of super heroes, the creative potential is endless.  Exploring the universal appeal of fable, tradition, and the mystical consequences between good and evil, each artist delves into their imaginative depths, conjuring a night of unadulterated magic.

Among this outstanding group of participating artists, Bash Contemporary presents the incomparable works of Copycat Violence, a worldwide independent artist collective working together to “redefine the exquisite and encourage the extraordinary”.
