XOXO, SAFETY NET / DIS × TOSHIKI

13 DEC - 5 JAN

OIL BY BIJUTUTECHO / PARCO SHIBUYA

RECEPTION: 13 DEC 2019 / 6-9pm

The artwork and bag collection presented in XOXO, SAFETY NET correlate with a trilogy of Public Service announcement videos by DIS produced 10 years after the 2008 global financial crisis, drawing on the missed opportunity for economic revolution. DIS contemplates the future of money, income inequality, and the uncertain economic prospects of Millennials in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis through the use of pop-culture characters from entertainment media: the Night King from HBO’s Game of Thrones, the cast of the long-running teen TV show Gossip Girl, and a set of sporting events superfans doused in head-to-toe glitter.  

 

New York-based collective DIS creates work across a wide range of formats as they forecast and respond to cultural, economic, and aesthetic trends. Composed of Lauren Boyle, Solomon Chase, Marco Roso, and David Toro, DIS was founded in 2010 as a subversive online magazine. In early 2018, it transitioned into dis.art (http://dis.art), a video-streaming “edutainment” platform. dis.art stands out starkly in a media landscape muddled by pundits, fake news, and sound bites — presenting complex, rigorously researched subjects within scenarios informed by pop culture and an irreverent sense of humor.
