Iván Navarro: Fluorescent Light Sculptures
November 17, 2012 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum premieres two new exhibitions that open tonight with a reception. Iván Navarro: Fluorescent Light Sculptures and Reflections Across Time: Seminole Portraits. Chilean-born Navarro’s exhibit feature three floor sculptures, fourteen wall sculptures, and three videos that illuminate the thematic directions of his multilayered practice. The Nowhere Man series, shown here in its entirety for the first time in a museum in the U.S., engages and transforms the iconic pictograms originally created for the 1972 Olympics. Three videos on view illustrate the artist’s conceptual and formal reach. Curated by Julia P. Herzberg. Reflections Across Time: Seminole Portraits exhibition merges Native American portraiture with Native American ethnographic materials. Over 150 years of portraits of Seminole leaders and tribal members by George Catlin, Edward Curtis and other noted nineteenth and twentieth-century artists are featured. The artwork of prominent Seminole artists will illustrate the pride and vision of their heritage as a reflection of historical images and how their significance is transformed for the present. Curated by Annette B. Fromm.
