The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU is launching its spring programming with three impactful and groundbreaking exhibitions focused on the environment, the obsession with technology and an examination of the concept of community.

Transitional Nature: Hudson River School Paintings from the David and Laura Grey Collection (on view from Jan. 25 - May 17, 2020) features 29 paintings from the New York collection of David and Laura Grey and includes masterpieces by Albert Bierstadt, Robert S. Duncanson, Asher B. Durand, and George Inness. Paintings of beautiful nature landscapes aside, the paintings allow for a deep dive into topics which are still very relevant today, including the preservation of nature.

Liu Shiyuan: Opaque Pollination (on view from Jan. 25 – Apr. 12, 2020), is this artist’s first solo exhibition at a museum in the United States. Liu’s quirky videos, collaged photography, and mixed media will make visitors giggle in wonderment or might beckon them to think about awkward human interactions as a result of our collective obsession with technology and social media. Many of the pieces are stripped of their original context—the artist takes odd and unusual stock photos of objects and brilliantly composes a visual symphony that inspires thought and emotion.
Terence Price II: Never Ending Gardens (on view from Feb. 6 – Apr. 26, 2020) presents 21 photographs and two videos that create a visual story about Miami’s predominately black community, Carol City. Growing up in this neighborhood, Price navigated the hard times, economic change and neglect that the area, now called Miami Gardens, experienced. He taught himself photography, studying works by other artists, and began to create work that contemplates the idea of community. Price captures intimate relationships formed among family, friends, and neighbors as his photography bears witness to change in his community and documents how individual lives are affected by economic shifts. The exhibition’s title refers to his enduring bond with the community and its residents, who raised him and shaped his perspective.
