Artists’ Gallery Talk at 5pm with a reception to follow until 7pm

As part of the Currents Series, Vanessa Diaz (South Florida) and Tyanna Buie (Detroit, Michigan) were invited to collaborate for the first time on a site-specific installation. Diaz’s found furniture constructions and Buie’s large-scale prints are combined to create fragmented interior spaces for the viewer to explore. Childhood memories and dreams are recalled as the artists reflect on family and architectural spaces.

Sponsored by Gene and Lee Seidler and the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.

The Possibility of an Exit

  • ArtsUp!

Opening Preview January 29, 2016 at 6-9 pm

The Possibility of an Exit is an immersive installation experience, which invites the viewer to consider a precarious and unlikely path of escape through a volatile hanging obstacle course. This site-specific work utilizes salvaged items cleared from buildings before demolition, architectural elements, fencing, discarded tarps, window blinds, lighting fixtures….  altogether spanning across the structural ceiling supports to form a series of connecting pathways.

Florida Prize in Contemporary Art

The Orlando Museum of  Art

'These artists work in a wide array of artistic practices, often combining media and materials in inventive ways. Many are creating work from reclaimed materials and imagery appropriated from historic and popular culture. The diversity of the work seen in the Florida Prize in Contemporary Art reflects the dynamic and challenging nature of art today.'
