The 2011 edition of southXeast: Contemporary Southeastern Art is the third edition of the only regularly occurring curated exhibition in Florida that presents a selection of innovative art made by artists living in the southeast. Devoid of a thematic ballast, the exhibition has the simple aim that our students and other audiences might benefit by seeing high quality artwork not commonly or ever seen in South Florida and/or Miami, a growing international center of contemporary art activity. The exhibition also seeks to present a diversity of approaches to contemporary art making while also representing specific studio art disciplines that are taught in FAU’s Department of Visual Arts and Art History.
Artists in the exhibition include Barb Bondy, Alabama; Hunt Clark, Tennessee; Damond Howard, South Carolina; Scott Ingram, Georgia; Phillip R. Jackson, Mississippi; Clive King, Florida; Carl Knickerbocker, Florida; Christopher Miner, Tennessee; Beatriz Monteavaro, Florida; Stephanie Patton, Louisiana; Mario Petrirena, Georgia; Pandra Williams, Georgia; Kathy Yancey, Georgia.
Guest Curator: Jennifer Inacio with W. Rod Faulds
