Other People’s Stuff. From Mar 18th through Apr 7th, 2010.
Artists in the exhibition “Other People’s Stuff”, curated by Harumi Abe, the Fine Arts Gallery Director, derived their inspiration through found personal belongings, objects that originally they or their relatives owned and some other items that belonged to strangers. Coming from the starting point of “What happens to the stuff after the owner has moved on?” each artist answered the question in different ways through the respective media chosen. This exhibit features works of artists Duane Brant, Jules Lusson, Hugo Moro, Abner Nolan and Kerry Philips. This show will include site-specific sculpture installation, drawing, photography installation, collage and ongoing performance.
Duane Brant will present his “Saw Organ”, an interactive acoustical sound machine. Brant was born in Montana. After graduating in the University of Wyoming, he taught in the public school system for 20 years. He now teaches at Barry University and works in Hollywood, FL.
Jules Lusson is part of a family that has a long history in Florida, and her work is inspired by the natural world that surrounds her. She will display works from “The Miami Series” created with old images by famed Miami photographer Carl Walden and her drawings.
