The Lost Boys at Z Gallery Arts
International Collaboration Project Artists Francisco Diaz + Deb Young
Diaz and Young start The Lost Boys project as a story where growing up is a subversive act of life. The Lost Boys series is a metaphorical look at collectivism and individualism as social and cultural syndromes. The fact is that the fundamental social conflict of Western culture today is an issue of individualism vs. collectivism. With photographic manipulation, Diaz and Young explore the visual language, reviewing evidence of childhood and adolescent gatherings in a group that behaves as a system that shares attitudes, beliefs, norms, roles, and values.
Exhibition on view at Z Gallery Arts March 16 - April 30. Opening reception: March 16, 6pm – 8pm.
