Locust Projects Announces 3 New Exhibitions & More In June 2021

 


ANNOUNCING THREE NEW EXHIBITIONS

MEET THE ARTISTS RECEPTION
THURSDAY, JUNE 10 | 6-8PM
Reception supported by RotariUSA
On view through August 7 | Wed-Sat | 11am-5pm
MAIN GALLERY
TAL AMITAI-LAVI & TAL FRANK: Homeline

Homeline is composed of domestic elements created out of unexpectedly weightless materials, including light and nylon strings: a window, a projected carpet, and a slowly flowing curtain creating reflections, inversions, illusions, and space disruptions and an illusionistic, dreamlike environment. Viewers are confronted by their perception and senses, entering a world whose foundations are fragile, in which life-sized architectural structures have lost their functionality and expected physicality. LEARN MORE.

PROJECT ROOM
Juan Ledesma: Rhythm of Speech
Ledesma’s first solo presentation, Rhythm of Speech, draws connections between diverse musical traditions and collective lived experiences by exploring the musical potential of spoken accents. Although accents are commonly considered linguistic indicators of nationality, cultural upbringing, or socio-economic background, Ledesma aims to reframe language as a collective repository of sounds that can be used towards creative musical compositions. LEARN MORE.
MOBILE STUDIO
LAB MFA: Victoria Ravelo: Hidden in Plain View
The seventh edition of the LAB MFA summer exhibition program features Victoria Ravelo, recent MFA graduate from the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University.

Ravelo will be in residence through June 30th, during which time she will transform the storefront Mobile Studio into a working laboratory in which she will create sugar sculptures daily making references the ties of the local community to the Caribbean and the impact the sugar industry has had on the Caribbean as well as its historical significance and influence globally. LEARN MORE.

ArtServe Call to Artists: Superficial Impressions

ArtServe’s Superficial Impressions exhibition aims to recognize and reward visionary artists using photographic processes and images. In the era of the selfie and the infinite social media scroll, they’re searching for photographs born out of creative passion and sensitivity: the result of a need to express one’s feelings through the image; the creator’s unique view of one’s surrounding reality. The organization seeks to find and promote contemporary works from established and emerging South Florida photographers with a true passion for creativity. 

ArtServe strives to be a platform that allows the photographer to communicate with the world and share their vision, to communicate an idea, a message, or an emotion – capturing what the artist sees, not what the camera sees. Deadline: June 13, 2021

Criteria:
Photographers can enter up to 5 images in any variety of artistic styles: Architecture, Creative, Motion, Landscape, Lifestyle, Natural World & Wildlife, Portraiture, Object, Street Photography, and Travel.

All processes, capture techniques, and approaches to image construction are welcomed: film, digital, phone, b/w, color, collage/montage, and alternative processes.
All persons must be the sole copyright owner and creator of the photographs and have the right to enter the photographs in this competition.

This Call for Artists is open to South Florida artists and photographers regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, military status, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical ability.
