Carola Bravo: Between Absence and Presence
Thursday, Mar 16, 2023
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Opening March 16, part of the New Monuments artist open call.
Join us in Collins Park during Culture Crawl on Thursday March 16 from 6 – 9 PM as we unveil Carola Bravo: Between Absence and Presence, winner of The Bass’ New Monuments artist open call, a project established in 2020 with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through the museum’s Knight Art Commissions Program.
Venezuelan American artist, architect and cultural activist Carola Bravo challenges the traditional commemoration and use of public monuments by asking “what reflects impermanence better than recognizing invisibility and absence?” With Between Absence and Presence, the artist highlights society’s inverted values, reflecting the viewers’ gaze back towards themselves. The spectator becomes viewer and performer, sparking questions about our participation in how monuments legitimize and assign value to persons, places and moments.
Museum members enjoy complimentary wine by Dry Farm Wines during this opening event. Not yet a member? Join, today!
