Description
Appropriating equally from the political aesthetics of southernness and the formalist movements of Op Art, Minimalism, and Fluxus performance. REDNECKOGNIZE surveys the boundaries of regional identity and questions the limits of visual pleasure through the playful misuse of cultural context. From large format paintings to animated .gifs, HIXX employs a range of media to disrupt class-based values and deconstruct place-based essentialism, blurring the traditional strictures of urban cosmopolitan and rural culture by forcing the two into an uneasy dialogue.

In conjunction with REDNECKOGNIZE, HIXX will present a live performance, The FLUXUS Family Band, at the opening reception. One part Hee Haw style variety show and one part Fluxus event scores with acts featuring diverse members of the Austin creative community, the performance will incorporate line dancing, puppetry and live cinema, musical appearances, spoken work and audience participation as a means to caricature and critique the redneck as entertainment. Using the Fluxus intermedia approach to performance, coupled with the non sequitur superstructure of Hee Haw, The FLUXUS Family Band disarms the idioms and ideologies of both the contemporary artworld and the South.
