June 4 – August 4, 2012
USF Contemporary Art Museum
In Residence brings together the work of four Miami-based artists — Felecia Chizuko Carlisle, Naomi Fisher, Christy Gast, and Samantha Salzinger — who focus artistic inquiries on the contested space between the natural and the built environment. For decades, Miami has been the site of tremendous speculative real estate development, but it is also the southern edge of the famed Florida Everglades, a unique geography and the focus of a vast reclamation project. These artists fold the world around them into complex examinations of the history of art and an evolving understanding of landscape. In Residence is curated by Jane Simon, USFCAM Curator, and organized by the USF Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa.
