On view are basic shelters and a symbolic fireplace surrounded by mixed-media works inspired by images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, particle physics, microbiology, and an ongoing collaboration with the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum.
Artist Talk: Sri Prabha in Conversation with Margery Gordon and Dr. Jorge Perez-Gallego
Tuesday, Oct. 21, 6:30 pm
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.
Margery Gordon is a freelance journalist, curator and educator who grew up amid Miami’s burgeoning art community. 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.

Now an exhibition developer at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, he holds a PhD in astronomy and an MFA in design from the University of Florida. Co-founder of the ODDS design studio in Asheville, N.C., Perez-Gallego has worked for NASA and led international research on the evolution of galaxies.

Onajide Shabaka: Floridian Lacunae
September 14 - October 27, 2019
Onajide Shabaka is a South Florida-based artist whose “studio” occupies a metaphorical space of a walk or a hike within the built urban environment. His walking practice takes him by many unkempt edges and along undeveloped or disused lots, habitats that are often overlooked or considered “weed”-infested or “vacant.” His work comprises drawings, watercolors, photographs, video and installation as it weaves plants, people, and history in a poetic, rather than a documentary, manner.
Amalia Caputo: Transferences 2.0
September 14 - October 27, 2019
Amalia Caputo is an artist residing in Miami, originally from Caracas, Venezuela. She is a photo and video-based artist, independent curator and art writer whose work focuses on memory, the archive, feminine identity and the study of photography itself. Amalia Caputo will install Transferences, a project for which she has photo-graphed more than 1,700 personal objects from her collection.
Concerning Similarities and Differences: Drawing on Likeness
Saturday, January 18 - Sunday, March 15, 2020
Though Ivelisse Jimenez, Gustavo Prado and Lidija Slavkovic work with different materials, imagery, structures, processes and forms, their approach to making has more in common than one might at first imagine. In a sense they share a likeness – a family resemblance. They hold in common certain conceptual as well as material characteristics, which they have morphed by their cross-breeding and inbreeding. Consequently, each work partakes of a general economy consisting of the political, cultural and historical appropriation, as well as issues of perception and cognition. By bringing this sampling of their works together, my objective is to generate an environment in which the correspondences and differences between their works unfold to reveal, wherein resides the effort of the artist, the work art does and the role of the viewer.

to ensure we provide you the best experience possible.
To maintain the quality of future performances, we will be purchasing a new microphone system at a
projected cost of about $20,000.
