“Bonfire” now on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2015, Lisa’s painting Bonfire, 2013-2015 is now on view in gallery 917 in a collection installation entitled Knowledge of the Past Is the Key to the Future. The title of the exhibition is taken from a 1986 painting by Robert Colescott that sets the tone for the group of work on display, which includes several works gifted in honor of last year’s 150th anniversary of the Museum.

USF Institute for Research in Art in the College of The Arts launches its first major virtual exhibition, “Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of the Coronavirus”

Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of the Coronavirus

An Evolving Online Exhibition

Curated by Christan Viveros-Fauné; organized by USFCAM

June 6 – December 12, 2020

The USF Contemporary Art Museum, part of the USF Institute for Research in Art in the College of The Arts, will launch its first major virtual exhibition, Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of the Coronavirus. It humbly engages a select company of international artists to respond to the overwhelming realities of the crisis that has gripped the planet since March 5, the date the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. The exhibition takes full advantage of one of the few outlets artists still have–the Internet– during a public health emergency recently exacerbated by the wanton murder of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis. It aims to mobilize sentiment, thought and activity around art and its enduring possibilities: its role as a conceptual catalyst, its ability to trigger ideas, stories, conversations, emotions, feelings and mental states. Separately and together, each artist contribution provides a picture of a planet in crisis, now further enraged and victimized by violence, but also images of hope and optimism in the face of a global emergency. The exhibition will continue to evolve with the addition of new artists and materials. Life During Wartime: Art in the Age of Coronavirus is supported in part by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Online Opening // Saturday, June 6, 1 -3 pm EDT

featuring participating artists Basil Kincaid, Cristina Lucas, Narsiso Martinez, and Spencer Tunick.

Join online from the exhibition website. (Exhibition website opens 10am EDT; Zoom link will be live at 12:45pm EDT).
