EVEN COWBOYS GET THE BLUES focuses on the melancholic characteristics found within the narrative of the cowboy. The exhibition challenges the desire to maintain an individual mythology and singularity in relation to contemporary social networks, and poeticizes relationships between the romantic fictions and realities of the modern-day rhinestone cowboy.
