As part of a three month long residency (It’s All) Tropical is opening it's doors to it’s very first project Space- the Institute of tropical Art at STCFTHOTS Studios in Leeds. This is supported by Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun, Leeds.
Over these 3 months, Tropical is creating three exhibitions that explore contemporary artists' relationships with 20th century artistic movements and traditional genres. I'm In Love With Rococo is the first of the three shows.
(it’s all) Tropical love the Rococo movement. We love the muted colours, gentle forms, playful use of line, the elegant nudes, grand aesthetics and mythological content. I'm in Love with Rococo will exhibit works that share unconventional similarities with Rococo whilst investigating contemporary art practice through historical context.
