DUETS 2.0 is paired with highly-acclaimed artistic platform and curatorial team Tax Collection’s exhibition New Pop -- a pop culture-inspired exhibit showcasing visual artists whose work often portrays sociopolitical undertones through mixed mediums, playful techniques, and vibrant colors.

Tax Collection hopes to analyze today’s emerging style of pop culture is affected by instant access to information and an endless supply of imagery available on the internet. The carefully-curated list of artists in New Pop seeks to showcase the interaction between contemporary pop iconography, ranging from celebrities to viral trends, and are on the forefront of exploring how the new millennial generation interacts and comments on social and political trends.
