Nexus Architecture + Connector I
The exhibition was organized by the Contemporary Art Museum, University of South Florida. Lucy Orta's sculpture combines fashion design, architecture and a social agenda. The artist orchestrates events to create literal and metaphoric human connections. Cross disciplinary workshops that involve marginalized, at-risk or underserved community populations are integral to these interventions/events. On the occassion of the exhibition at FAU the University Galleries organized workshops with the artist and produced a public performance engaging children from Palm Beach and Miami Counties.
