The 2018 Florida Biennial features 68 works by 30 artists who were selected by juror Sarah Fritchey from entries submitted to the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood. The exhibition opened on Friday, Sept. 14 with the announcement of awards for the Juror’s Pick, Edison Peñafiel, and Honorable Mention, Lisa Rockford.
This ninth edition of the Center’s Juried Biennial received applications from 291 artists living in 85 cities throughout Florida. In all, juror Sarah Fritchey reviewed 2,050 works from artists working in any media. The 2018 Florida Biennial focuses on exploring multicultural identities, discussing ecological issues, and imagining a robust cultural climate for Florida within the global economy.
The Hours Collective in conjunction with the Fritz Gallery in West Palm Beach presents FLAT, a video-based exhibition that ranges from traditional narrative to moving image installation. Each artist in the exhibition presents work that harnesses the avant-garde spirit of new media. Video art emerged as a legitimate medium in the 1960’s and has been popularized by available high and low technologies. As television and video have become the most widespread means of communication, artists have challenged, embraced, and repurposed the functions and forms of moving images. While some videos consider the invasive nature of the transmitted moving image in society’s psyche, others explore the medium’s potential to capture temporal, surreal imagery other artistic media cannot. FLAT is concerned with both the confines and capacities of new media; in the flatness of the walls, a depth is excavated, creating the capacity for experience and transportation.
The Fritz Gallery is pleased to present IN SIGHT, an exhibition featuring Michael Dillow and Jason LeVan. Dillow and LeVan both share a preoccupation with modes of perception. Through a phenomenological inquiry into objects, space and place, the artists’ in this exhibition exploit our perception of the ordinary.
Open from June 16 - July 14, 2018
What does the world look like and how do people see themselves within it? How are memory and identity manifested in those perspectives? How does the constancy of change and the current state of flux influence this connection? This national juried exhibition brings together photographic works from artists who are concerned with humanity's complex relationship to place.
