On View : Biological Futurism

Virtual Exhibition & Tour

The City of Pembroke Pines and the Frank Art Gallery are pleased to present Biological Futurism, which is on display virtually from November 5, 2020 through January 30, 2020.

Through a 360° interactive tour, guests can venture into an immersive world inspired by scientific illustration and the adaptive capabilities of nature. Biological Futurism highlights the work of artists Judith Berk King, Georgeta Fondos, Lisa Haque, Andy Lomas, Lisa McCutcheon and Gretchen Scharnagl. This virtual exhibition is a curatorial collaboration with South Florida-based art and technology organization, Interactive Initiative.

Challenging the divide between art and science, Biological Futurism explores topics of hybridization, environmental biology and cellular interaction through art. Evoking memories of curio cabinets within archetypal science museums, The Frank reinvents itself as a vast display case brimming with scientific specimens – all of which are imagined, reconstructed, or transformed. Freed from the boundaries of the canvas, biological organisms dance across gallery walls and escape the constraints of time and place.

In celebration of 'Biological Futurism,' The Frank is hosting free virtual art workshops, lectures, tutorials and storybook readings. Please visit The Frank's virtual classroom here to access this free art education content!

This classical atelier is led by its founder, David Chang, a classically-trained artist, professor and chair of the department. Since its inception, many of FIU’s most talented students and alumni have become a part of this unique and competitive experience at the university, establishing it as a leader of visual art in higher education. It remains the first of its kind at a public university in the nation.
