Artist Talk: Sri Prabha in Conversation with Margery Gordon and Dr. Jorge Perez-Gallego

Sri Prabha will illuminate the multifaceted ideas and influences that inspired Outpost in a discussion with art critic Margery Gordon and Dr. Jorge Perez-Gallego, an astronomer and designer at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science. Their exchange will consider how artworks and exhibitions can use innovative design and technology to explore how humans relate to the natural world.
Sri Prabha lives in Hollywood and works at a studio in FAT Village, Fort Lauderdale. He was raised in India by a family of doctors and engineers who sparked an interest in science that deepened with the masters’ degree in psychology he pursued after studying at the Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.

As founder and director of Arts Encounters, she organizes cultural tours throughout South Florida as well as public programs, exhibitions and group travel for arts organizations, institutions and businesses.
