Schmidt Center Gallery Public Space: Installation(s) by Selected Artist(s), Late Fall - May, 2018

Opening: Thursday, February 1, 2018

The 2018 edition of southXeast: contemporary southeastern art is the fifth edition of the only regularly occurring curated exhibition in Florida that presents a selection of innovative art made by artists living in the southeast. Devoid of thematic ballast, the exhibition has the simple aim that our students and other audiences might benefit by seeing high quality artwork not commonly or ever seen in South Florida and/or Miami, a growing international center of contemporary art activity. The exhibition also seeks to present a diversity of approaches to contemporary art making while also representing specific studio art disciplines that are taught in FAU’s Department of Visual Arts and Art History.
