Adler Guerrier: Out to Lunch
Feb. 27 – May 23, 2010
Opening Reception: Fri., Feb. 26, 6-9 pm
Haitian-born, Miami-based contemporary artist Adler Guerrier will create a new site-specific exhibition in the Center’s main gallery that will explore the effects of geography, politics, and history on Hollywood, Florida, and nearby environs. Guerrier’s multi-dimensional exhibition will employ a variety of media, including photography, drawings, sculpture, and video, to express a “psycho-geographic” narrative of a distinctive cityscape that includes an urban center, quiet neighborhoods, and a lively beachfront. Guerrier finds inspiration in the simple act of walking city streets, which he describes as a “political and poetic act.”
A self-described “urban wanderer,” he writes in his exhibition proposal, “My thoughts on the city of Hollywood, Florida, are mainly about movement, driving around the city’s circles, walking on U.S. 1 and downtown, and also of being at ease…”
Through his own simple interactions in our diverse city, Guerrier will create a multi-media exhibition that will provide a timely and perhaps even timeless document of a specific moment in our local history. He will also include collaborative elements to this exhibition by inviting a small number of other artists whose contributions will be integrated into the installation as a whole. The exhibition will also feature a gallery discussion with the artist, giving the public the opportunity to learn more about Guerrier’s working process.
