John DeFaro: Trawler
Feb. 11 – Mar. 11, 2012
Opening Reception: Fri., Feb. 10, 6 - 9 pm
“Trawler” is the name given to a boat or vessel used for trawling. John DeFaro’s site specific installation will combine activism and environmental concerns with visual art as a communicator. Within the installation, writings relating to materials of the project will address fisherman’s and ghost nets, and the environmental impacts of farming the seas as metaphor. DeFaro is originally from the Hamptons in New York and has lived for several years in South Florida.
