FSU Art Professor Lilian Garcia-Roig is to be featured in Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, an exhibition which offers thematically linked exhibitions and programs during a four-month-long, region-wide exploration of Latin American and Latino Art in dialogue with Los Angeles. The exhibition proposes an “archipelagic model”— which defines the Caribbean from the perspective of its archipelago of islands, as distinct from the continental experience — to study issues around race, history, the legacy of colonialism, and the environment.
Garcia-Roig will exhibit her work as part of the Landscape Ecologies exhibit, which considers the Caribbean as a region of shared ecosystems and habitats. She will feature alongside Angel Otero, Edouard Duval-Carrié, Deborah Jack, Sofia Maldonado, Blue Curry, David Gumbs, Natusha Croes, Christopher Cozier, Nicole Awai, Allora & Calzadilla, Tony Capellán, Frances Gallardo, Glenda Salazar Leyva, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, Ricardo de Armas, Vladimir Cybil Charlier, Lynn Parotti, Charles Juhasz-Alvarado, Guerra de la Paz, Marc Latamie, and Joiri Minaya.
The exhibition will be featured at MOLAA from September 16, 2017 through January 2018, and then it will travel to the Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University in New York City for the summer of 2018. It will show at the Patricia & Philip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University in Miami during the fall of 2018, the Portland Museum of Art in Maine for spring 2019 and the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington, Delaware during the summer of 2019.
