LeQuiVive Gallery & guest curator Max Kauffman present Neu Folk Revival, a group show exploring notions of traditional art making. The title refers to a new movement working in these confines; or rather a cross section of artists from different realms that make work that speaks to this tradition. By celebrating these techniques, it is hoped that new appreciation for work done by hand, done for the simple act of creation is looked at in line with great artists spanning back to the dawn of civilization. At its core, it is visual storytelling, done by the everyday man, the craftsmen, the self-taught, and the sometimes obsessive. Neu Folk Revival expands the vision and subtle story of LeQuiVive as we combine the folky illustrations, the train hopping moniker, writers of street art, & graffito in order to explore our current society through the view of the new Americana.
