Summary
The title 'Road Back To Relevance' refers to a slide presentation made by the artist in collaboration with an advertising strategist and designer that, by charting the course of a specific solidarity campaign between Wales and Nicaragua started in the 1980s, questions how pre-'clicktivist' modes of social engagement, activism, and international solidarity can remain relevant today. As Dieter Roelstraete writes in his essay contribution,?The work of Dan Rees touches upon a wide range of topics, subjects, and issues, but one dominant, recurring preoccupation doubtlessly concerns the politics of taste. Taste its cultural corollaries, its political over- and undertones, and most importantly its social sources is one of Rees's preferred problems. And where it is addressed most directly and unapologetically that is to say, in the so-called Artex paintings is exactly where his work becomes most willingly, egregiousl ?problematic.00Exhibition: Nomas Foundation, Rome, Italy (15.03.-10.06.2016).
