TAMUCC Assistant Professor of Sculpture, Leticia R. Bajuyo and fellow Land Report Collective artist Jason Brown, Associate Professor at University of Tennessee, Knoxville were selected for a two-person exhibition at Jacksonville University at the Alexander Brest Art Gallery in Jacksonville, Florida.
Exhibition Dates: February 6-28, 2020
Opening Reception and Gallery Talk: Thursday, February 6, 5-7pm
Titled Exurb, this exhibition focuses on the subject of landscape in which Bajuyo and Brown extend their investigations beyond formal aesthetic elements to include questions of historical context, politics of ownership, and environmental impact.
Leticia Bajuyo transforms suburban stereotypes into symbols and visual markers that delight and at the same time spur a critical stance as she crafts an irony inflected dystopian vision of the suburban fantasy.
Jason Brown creates artwork that engages viewers in a conversation about the environmental cost of energy extraction from the earth as it relates to wants and needs in a consumer culture.
In addition to exhibiting their individual artworks, in response to the Jacksonville area, Bajuyo and Brown created collaborative, site-sensitive installations to facilitate a conversation about landscape in suburban/exurban developments.
