Flowers

"Youth is leading the revolution. Since the murder of George Floyd, the resurgence of street activism from Black Lives Matter to Stop Asian Hate, Free Palestine, and advocacy for trans, immigrant, and sex workers' rights has filled the streets of New York City. Black queer and Black trans voices have come to the forefront of the fight. Their photographs make up most of this portfolio-portraits of people I have met at marches and rallies as well as actions that center and uplift marginalized communities. I started thinking of these young activists as flowers, full of beauty and life at the dawn of a new era." Stas Ginzburg

Collecting Somewhere

Galloway is known for her large, tiled photo-based print installations, but for her 2022 solo exhibition at The South Gallery, she will create an intimate space that will reflect a combination of her studio and her home, allowing the public to explore and engage with her studio practice. The works exhibited will include in-process quilt squares, large prints of wheat-pasted landscapes, collections of meaningful postcards, and small drawings of empty signage. The open floor space of the gallery will be furnished with a collection of thrift store chairs and the artist will be in residence at the gallery twice a week during the exhibition on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Glam Camp

From January 31 to February 25, The South Campus Gallery hosted a new art exhibition entitled GLAM CAMP by Enrique Cirino. Cirino is a South Florida mixed media artist who is originally from Venezuela. His unique artworks entertain viewers by combining vivid colors and textures, showcasing personal memories, storylines, and narratives of love, loss, and excess. Mainly influenced by the extravagance of the Baroque and Rococo periods in Art History, Cirino also uses selected found imagery from his collection of magazines that range from as far back as the 1950s to the present day. Through the medium of collage combined with acrylic and spray paint and any recycled surfaces, he can salvage, Cirino creates a renewed Pop/ Urban feel in each of his pieces. Often his works have elaborate frames which are painted or collaged upon, making them integral to canvases and stories. His work not only reveals his absolute love and dedication to the aesthetic style of Camp, but he also feels his art encourages viewers to consider what their own views of beauty are; "It is important to me that my art makes you think, encourages you to develop a point of view, but also makes you feel a little bit uncomfortable," says Cirino.
