Orlando Museum of Art Florida Prize in Contemporary Art


June 21 - September 7, 2014

The Orlando Museum of Art presents the inaugural exhibition of the Orlando Museum of Art Florida Prize in Contemporary Art. The invitational exhibition features 10 of the most progressive and exciting artists working in the State today. The award and invitational exhibition recognizes the achievement and potential of these artists and encourages their continued innovation and creation of new work. With this initiative, the Orlando Museum of Art underscores its commitment to support talented emerging and mid-career artists, while celebrating the vibrant cultural life of Florida.

The artists selected for the exhibition this year are:

Agustina Woodgate, conceptual and process-oriented work
Juan Travieso, painting
Jillian Mayer, video, internet and interactive installation
Ezra Johnson, painting and video animation
Sinisa Kukec, sculpture and installation
Brookhart Jonquil, sculpture and installation
Christopher Harris, film and video installation
Vanessa Diaz, sculpture and immersive installation
Elisabeth Condon, painting
Sarah Max Beck, post-consumer plastic tapestry.

These artists work in a wide array of artistic practices, often combining media and materials in inventive ways. Many are creating work from reclaimed materials and imagery appropriated from historic and popular culture. The diversity of the work seen in the Florida Prize in Contemporary Art reflects the dynamic and challenging nature of art today.

This exhibition was made possible through the support of Anonymous Donors, the Chesley G. Magruder Foundation, CNL Charitable Foundation, the Martin Andersen-Gracia Andersen Foundation, Rita and Jeffrey Adler Foundation, Williams Family Foundation, State of Florida, Division of Cultural Affairs, United Arts of Central Florida, the Ambassadors, Audrey and Pat Knipe, Council of 101, Dolores and Bruce Douglas and Massey Services.
