Fred ButlerTRAVELING MAC FRED ON A Q-TIP FOR A TRIBE CALLED GUESS
From the prismatic mind of artist/designer Fred Butler comes a unique exhibition full of fantastical belief and spirituality.
This February, KK Outlet will be transformed into a futuristic temple where Fred Butler will unveil abstract shrines inspired by a utopian future full of peace and void of war. Incorporating new work, archive pieces from previous collections and photography by Walter Hugo & Zoniel, each shrine will pay tribute to imaginary prophets who brought about peace, love, and the power of collective energy.
The spectator will be invited to choose their own journey through the space, feeling the warmth and synergy of colour, object, fashion and art all through the gaze of Fred Butler. Alongside the shapes and hues of the shrines, the exhibition will feature scents, Flower arrangements by The Flower Appreciation Society, Altars designed by Install Archive and a sound mix created by DJ Todd Hart turning the exhibition into a truly sensory experience.
The exhibition will feature a body of artwork and one off pieces from Fred’s archive available for sale to collectors.
