Selina Román: A Liminal State

Selina Román: A Liminal State

April 29 – September 23, 2018 • CHANGING EXHIBITION GALLERIES

Seductive and mysterious, the characters in Selina Román’s photographs offer an intimate, yet unsettling glimpse into a transient world full of the colors and glittering textures of vintage Florida. Selina Román: A Liminal State explores the quickly vanishing glamour of old Florida and the temporary feeling of the artist’s native state. Román’s voyeuristic approach allows her models to experiment with props and costumes, who are often transformed into faceless alter egos. Featuring her Florida motel room series, Please Disturb, the exhibition includes some of Román’s props to immerse the visitor in her experiences and photographs from a collaboration she did with members of the LRMA community in July 2017.

The Museum Project

April 29 – September 23, 2018 • CHANGING EXHIBITION GALLERIES

The Museum Project was established in 2012 by a distinguished group of American artists to express their gratitude for the institutional support of photography as an art form by donating their work to museums throughout the country. After spending several months culling through more than 400 images, the LRMA curatorial staff selected fifty-four photographs from nine artists for donation to the museum’s contemporary photography collection. This selection reflects a multitude of contemporary perspectives, diverse styles, concepts and photographic processes. Participating artists, such as Darryl Curran, pioneered experimental techniques while others are known for their unique style, including Bonnie Schiffman’s celebrity portraits featured on Saturday Night Live and in Rolling Stone magazine.

Elemental: Fine Crafts from the Collection

October 8, 2017 – September 15, 2019 • PERMANENT COLLECTION GALLERY

A new installation of sculptural works from the permanent collection based on the classical elements of the ancient Chinese tradition: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. These elements were used for describing interactions and relationships between phenomena. The interrelationship of these classical elements is explored through contemporary fine craft mediums including jewelry, decorative arts, sculpture, ceramics, textiles and paper. An amalgam of ancient raw materials and modern ingenuity, artists stretch the boundaries of earth’s elements in metal, wood, clay, stone, glass and other natural media.
