A Cowboys Rite of Passage will be a performance exhibition which will seek to create a humorous catharsis for the viewer. Adhering to the tradition of the bard, this exhibition will reference elements of collective experience intertwined with cowboy culture.

In the latter part of the seventeenth century the idea of the ‘bard’ came to mean an epic author, singer or narrator. The bard’s stories would often satirise society, acting as a social cleanser and as kind of relief for the general public.
