MAC Fine Art will open a new exhibition called Sidetracked on Saturday, October 18th during Art Fallout 2014. The exhibition will feature several FIU students, alumni, and faculty.
Below is a statement by the gallery about Sidetracked:
Sidetracked is a group show curated by Rochi Llaneza in which the work of the artists is either the result of being sidetracked or sidetracking intentionally to accomplish an objective.
[We] came upon this statement from Sir Ken Robinson that sets the tone for this exhibition: “Divergent thinking…is an essential capacity for creativity. It’s the ability to see lots of possible answers to a question, lots of possible ways to interpret a question, to think laterally, to think not just in linear or convergent ways, to see multiple answers, not one.”
The exhibit includes works by
Aaron Arroyave (FIU Medical student)
Eddie Arroyo (FIU BFA ’01)
Gary Fonseca (FIU BFA ’07)
Julie Friel (FIU MFA ’99)
Bryan Hiveley (Past Instructor, FIU Art + Art History Department)
Gretchen Scharnagl (Full-Time Instructor of Art + Art History Department and the Honors College)
Yomarie Silva-O’Neal (FIU MFA ’05)
Daniel Elijah Novem (Daniel Fernandez, FIU BFA ’08)
Sidetracked will open on Saturday, October 18th, 2014 at 5PM at MAC Fine Art: 833 NE 4th Lane, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304. Free and open to the public.
There will also be a musical performance by Daniel Elijah Novem (Daniel Fernandez, FIU BFA ’08).
