Date and Location

University of Miami Associate Professor of Sculpture Billie Grace Lynn is known for creating meticulous, thought-provoking projects and interventions that address some of contemporary culture’s most pressing issues head-on. Her latest work is no exception: featuring Lynn’s sculptural interpretation of a 26-foot tall hoodie (the garment stereotypically associated with black male youth in America) and an 18-foot mirrored, kinetic obelisk (modeled on the iconic Washington Monument), this interactive, inter-disciplinary project invites viewers to reflect on identity politics, civic engagement, civil discourse, and democracy’s precarious fragility. It equally pays homage to Abraham Lincoln’s famous speech of 1858 (delivered after he was selected by the Illinois Republican Party to run for US Senate) in which he—referencing the Gospel as well as war-torn America’s lived reality —proclaimed, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Visions of Place: Complex Geographies in Contemporary Israeli Art Visions of Place offers a unique lens through which to view and better understand the complexities of Israel. Geography, in all its many manifestations – physical, personal, religious, political, historical, and economic- among others – is an inescapable part of Israeli life, psyche, and art. The exhibition includes approximately fifty works, including photographs, videos, installations, paintings, sculptures, and mixed media, by thirty-four contemporary artists who explore contending views of history and identity, questioning relationships to, and conflicts over, place.
