Outpost is a site specific installation inspired by space, biology, and exploration. An otherworldly campsite is presented bathed in video and natural sounds. 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.
Reception begins at 6:30 pm, talk begins at 7 pm.

Frimaire is the Color of Adolescent Sunset
March 15 - May 19, 2019
Frimaire is the Color of Adolescent Sunset is a series of site-specific installations by local and national artists and educators who explore discoveries between experimentation and academic practice with lighting, sets, sculpture, and
performance. Jane Cassidy, Laura Gomez Bustamante, Peter Symons, and Justin Long are contributing artists.
June 7 - August 18, 2019
When inanimate objects reflect cultural concerns, historical narratives, and playful humor, it becomes clear that artists project their impressions of history into figurative works to better understand contemporary society. The sculptures, puppets, and installations in Personify engage new audiences and ask for participation. Art-making activities will be available for gallery visitors and tour groups in an immersive installation by Jim Hammond, marionettes will be on view and engaged with for the opening of Pablo Cano’s work, and an installation about the life and inventions of Nikola Tesla by Jeanne Jaffe will hang delicately from the Immersive Gallery ceiling.
