The Faculty Show is an annual FIU exhibition of the Art & Art History Department, this year featuring Tori Arpad-Cotta’s long, lovely portage, and R.F. Buckley's Reflections on Water.
The FIU Faculty Show features two outstanding artists from the Art & Art History Department, Tori Arpad-Cotta and R.F. Buckley. Arpad-Cotta’s exhibition, long, lovely portage, continues her attention to place and practice, with an installation of projected video, hand-bound books and cast Egyptian paste in which presence and absence mingle. The rhythms of South Florida waterways and substance of its sand and soil provide the locale for a meditation on the space between things. Buckley describes his exhibition, Reflection on Water, as being about aluminum and light;light and its refraction and interaction with aluminum. “My attempt with aluminum is to present a touchstone to access a few of our stored memories and experiences with water. The most recent iteration attempts to recall reflected light off of water, the movement of water and the fluidity of its changing states.”
The FIU College of Architecture + The Arts, The Wolfsonian-FIU and the Frost Art Museum will also be highlighting what each has planned for the upcoming year in the Fall Arts Preview during this Target Wednesday After Hours.
