Tuesday, Mar. 19th - Saturday, May. 11th
FREE; From: 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM Saturday: 1-5PM

Jillian Mayer’s practice continually explores how technology affects our lives, bodies and identities through investigating the blurred lines between our physical and online worlds in regards to dependency and value. While growing up in Florida, one of the sea level states that stands to face global warming head on, Mayer has been inundated with a lifetime of hurricane seasons and alerts. In this exhibition, Mayer continues her exploration into survivalist and prepper subculture tendencies that stem from her personal experience as well as a general more global experience of environmental disaster.

Wednesday, Mar. 20th - Sunday, Mar. 31st
FREE; From: 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM Sunday: 1-5PM

Visit the gallery for the Cages / Logging exhibit – which composes two parallel narratives that explore the processes by which nature becomes a material space charged with intellectual emotion. From the exploration that compels us to search for the natural sources that will provide us with our building materials, to the actual manufacturing of the skin that protects us from that same environment, Cages / Logging offers a unique vision of the privilege and responsibility that we have in the design of our spaces.
