Manifest Gallery’s Regional Showcases are intended to complement the ordinarily very wide geographical makeup of most Manifest exhibits with a closer look at what’s being done in particular places.
For this fifth in the series they opted to produce two exhibits to survey the states of Florida and Michigan (the north/south extremes of Interstate 75) through an open call for works of any kind.
Manifest’s several-member blind jury process reviewed 225 works by 74 artists in Michigan and Florida for this two-exhibit parallel regional survey. Seven works by three artists from Florida were selected for exhibition and will also be featured in the Manifest Exhibition Annual publication (MEA) at the close of the season.
“This work reflects an exploration into the found nature of the original and the endless possibilities of the “do-over. The tedious and meditative aspects involved in constructing these pieces deny the thoughtless, device-based immediacy with which we so often capture the world”.
