New Industry

This survey of the industrial aesthetic blurs the lines between fine art, mechanical design and fabrication and challenges traditional art making materials and techniques. New Industry presents the work of 5 South Florida artists: Nestor Arenas, Yves Gabriel, Kx2, Devora Perez, Norman Silva, Layne Hinton and Chris Foster. These artists employ a minimalist tendency while engaging the viewer with work grounded in industrialization, gentrification, and/or the notion of change through industrial materials. Oftentimes, in urban environments, the viewer is met with a combination of aesthetics and materials. New Industry seeks to contextualize this industrial aesthetic as an artistic result of urbanization.

Florida Is...

The exhibition portrayed an evolving body of two-dimensional works that depict the natural beauty of Florida. With a focus on community engagement, artist Xavier Cortada asked Floridians to define their state by its unique flora and fauna, rather than the things we build to displace it.

Through delicate drawings, vibrant monoprints and colorful larger-than-life projections, this exhibition educated viewers of all ages on the importance of Florida’s wildlife ecosystems and encouraged environmental stewardship.

Dynamic renderings of a new framework for sustainable urban design and architecture in South Florida are presented by the ADaPT Team, comprised of partners from Florida Atlantic University, Brooks + Scarpa, University of Southern California, and University of Kansas. Displayed in our Third Space and throughout the gallery were artworks by Artists With Autism, a nonprofit group that promotes entrepreneurial opportunities for artists on the autism spectrum.

Perceptual Tracking: A Color Space

The exhibit was focused around a collaborative installation by Leah Brown, Christian Feneck and Peter Symons. On entering the space, viewers will experience a visual immersion of color and form interacting with custom, color shifting light that gives the sensation of movement, while concealing and revealing as it shifts through the spectrum. This color-space combines narrative-driven sculptural elements with color-field painting and atmospheric lighting. This creates four distinct views of a visually confusing scene that combines elements of the organic and inorganic, the "real" and the perceived, predator and prey.

Contemporary artists Henning Haupt, Donna Haynes, Bonney Goldstein, Virginia Fifield and Jen Clay have created pieces exhibited in the front gallery around the overarching theme of perception.

Perceptual Tracking opened on January 11th, 2018 and closed March 11th, 2018.
