'For Your Pleasure' TikTok Art Exhibition

BY ellen.gif & mck3nz | 13-Aug-2020
Presenting For Your Pleasure, a new media art exhibition exclusive to the TikTok platform. 13.08.2020-31.08.2020. TikTok is a place where people dance around their kitchens, play pranks on their families, connect with their friends, laugh, cry and sing. Surprising, heartwarming and almost always funny, TikTok takes note of where you linger, what you ‘like’ and feeds you quick hits of dopamine just ‘for you’. The twelve artists in For Your Pleasure use sound, video, performance, dance, collage and pop culture to celebrate the connectivity, intimacy and relatability of 2020’s most downloaded app. In a nod to TikTok’s ‘For You Page’, For Your Pleasure gives you art you didn’t know you needed, from the comfort of your smartphone.

In a year that has gone from one extreme to the next, the artists in For Your Pleasure explore why TikTok has taken the world by storm. With the US election now looming, we are once again witnessing a presidential race tangled up in modern day propaganda, dangerous echo chambers, fake news and metadata. Never before has the world been so simultaneously aware of current events and so quick to unite individuals against a common enemy like the one million TikTokers who trolled Trump’s Tulsa rally by buying tickets and not showing up. If there’s a cause you want to get behind- you can be sure to find your people on TikTok, but, who’s afraid of the algorithm?
