So this saturday The Dallas Contemporary will be putting on their 2013 Phenomenon event and from what I can tell it’s going to be Dzine_immigrants_Emigrantsone heck of a good time. Described as “a fabulous, souped-up House Party celebrating the artist’s excessive and exuberant Kustom Kulture aesthetic.” (via)  DZINE, the artist whose Kustom Kulture aesthetic they refer to, is a self taught mixed media artist based out of Chicago. His work explores Kustom Kulture and its relationship to art, subcultures and the museum in an effort to re-conceptualize these diverse elements.

“The artist uses the sculptural and artistic form of lowriding as a platform to explore his emotional relationship with culture and beauty. DZINE’s work addresses these issues through a lens of spirituality, beauty, desire, faith, folklore and identity.” (via)

In celebration of DZINE’s artistic exploration and his method thereof,  Phenomenon 2013 will be hosting an over-the-top lowrider display  with musical guest, world renowned DJ Derrick Carter.

So to sum it up, if you come out to the Dallas Contemporary this Saturday not only will get the chance to see the DZINE’s exhibit in its entirety,  you will get an eye full of beautiful cars performing incredible tricks along with some top notch house music to move your feet to. Like I said, it sounds like a heck of a good time.
