The annual Exposed Exhibition and Fundraiser connects emerging artists with collectors through an exhibition of 98 donated artworks that are won by ticket buyers during an exciting closing-night draw. Exposed addresses the needs of artists to be supported, collected, and contextualized at every stage in their careers.
As an annual installation dedicated to Pleasurable, Lush, Utilitarian, Subjects of Humanity, PLUSH is a tactile mindscape. Textiles are inherently connected to the domestic environment. In the U.S., fiber art has often been mislabeled as craft or “women’s work,” however, in many countries, textile production is considered men’s labor.
For the past ten years, artists Annie Blazejack and Geddes Levenson have been collaborating through painting and fiber by way of Boston and New York. Together they experiment with painting as a way to conjure up impossible places, working in a directly responsive manner. Their world of painting and fiber is infinitely malleable, and they manipulate their painted environment, open portals, and merge with the South Florida landscape. The duo will install an immersive cosmic tent in the rectangular half of the Relational Room in relation to a series of paintings.
Both playfully and minimally, Suzan Shutan constructs immersive pompom installations as layers of abstract symmetry. Constructed from hundreds of repurposed and various sized pompoms and wire, the installation invites touching and activates movement related to patterns in nature (such as birds in flight).
