TIME + TEMP: Surveying the Shifting Climate of Painting in South Florida

This exhibition presents a survey of dynamic work by a selection of South Florida based artists who embrace and incorporate aspects of painting into their practice. A resurgence of painterly tendencies is currently taking hold among artists on a national even international level. Its growing appeal is also evident within the ever expanding contemporary art community in our region.

On view will be work by over 50 artists who are in different ways investigating and pushing prevailing definitions of painting. Boundaries of form have been expanded through a variety of techniques utilizing a broad range of materials. Some pieces have been created specifically for this exhibit yet are made with media other than traditional pigment-based paint on canvas.

Representation and abstraction continue to be very much at the forefront of this genre. However issues which have dominated painterly themes, such as color, surface, narrative and gesture are finding new expressions in a variety of unconventional and energized styles. Our tropical, lush and organic natural environment intersected by gleaming architectonic towers of light, glass and concrete set the stage for fertile and flowing currents of invention which are reflected in this diverse array of works.

Special event: Place in Time, a lively and candid forum where a selection of participating artists from this exhibition will discuss their personal backgrounds and how aspects of one’s heritage and environment informs one’s practice in ways relating to issues of ethnicity, spiritual and religious practices, gender, formal aesthetics, etc. – Date TBD

In conjunction with TIME + TEMP, The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood will unveil a newly painted site-specific mural by artist Francesco LoCastro in the Leonard and Sally Robbins Sculpture Garden.
