Art is traditionally considered a medium that comments, critiques and stimulates (individual or collective actions)
Art comments on societal reflections and individual aspirations, Art critiques lives and institutions, Art stimulates religious contemplation and subtle political action, Art is objectively sought and subjectively consumed.
Upon creation, each individual is put on earth to fulfill a destiny. All are equipped with blessings and for some… natural, innate ability, a gift.
The gift is a rare and exceptional quality that can influence and change society.
Art is the mirror of society and society often mimics art. Art tells a story. Art is debatable. Art is subjective.
Just as nature works harmoniously, each person fits like a jigsaw piece adding a new dimension to the world.
Art is one manifestation of 'The Gift', a gift from The Supreme
The Gift from above, by us, to you...
Masquerade 2000 presents to you The Gift for their 2010 theme, It is a representation of modern art in motion
The sections are as follows;
Pop Art - Pop artists have focused attention upon familiar images of popular culture, such as billboards, comic strips, magazine advertisements and supermarket products.
Optical Art - An impression of movement on the picture surface by means of optical illusion. It is derived from pop art and perceptual abstraction.
Futurism - Futurists loved speed, noise, pollution and cities; they embraced the exciting new world that was then upon them rather than hypocritically enjoying the modern world’s comforts while loudly denouncing the forces that made them possible.
Carnival Art – An expression of freedom, a celebration of culture, it is who we are and what we know. Feathers, Gems, Sequins and Braids. This is OUR movement.
Cultural Artisans (SOLD OUT) and Cyber Angel (stilt walkers) will also make up the composition of the Band.
Overall I think M2K’s 2010 NHC presentation is a good one not great good, ‘safe’ on the road the band will become a different creature, but will it be the 2010 band of the year?
