Big Listening, Deep Cypress. Somewhere deep in the Greater Everglades, where the evidence of life abounds, susurrant pathways of joy await us. Join Rev. Houston R. Cypress (Otter Clan) for a deep listening ramble through diverse plant communities of the Big Cypress National Preserve, starting from the Oasis Visitor Center. Share your insights with the circle. Embrace new relatives. Bring shoes to get muddy, your own water, light snacks, and a hat.
Meet at Locust Projects where a bus will depart promptly at 9am and return around 2pm. Or join us in Big Cypress at 10am at the Oasis Visitor Center.
Blending digital and manual making processes, robotic elements, and a series of water pumps, the massive, improvised fountain at the center of Lewis Colburn’s A Fountain for a Dark Future alludes to disruptive events on the human horizon such as sea level rise, automation, and the rise of authoritarianism.
A new immersive installation that underscores the reality that life-sustaining natural resources will become scarce across the globe, as humans both drive, and are impacted by, climate change, droughts, population growth, development and pollution. Here in South Florida, home to one of the most productive purifying aquifer systems in the world, the work weighs the value of gold and extractive capitalism against clean water and fertile soil.
During her residency at Locust Projects, Johnson will transform the Mobile Studio into a physical space to inform, heal, and offer counter-narratives that commemorate Black women and girls and celebrates their role in the community; a place where they can feel seen, apart from the world that continues to silence them and deem them invisible. In the words of poet Nayyirah Waheed, “All the women in me are tired”. An offering to Black women, Remnants responds to this collective experience by providing a place for all of these women in us to rest, normalize vulnerability, and dismantle the myth of the Black Superwoman while also reconnecting with and honoring our mothers, our mothers’ mothers and their mamas too.
Loni Johnson's residency at Locust Projects transforms the Mobile Studio into a physical space to inform, heal, and offer counter-narratives that commemorate Black women and girls and celebrates their role in the community. As part of her current exhibition, Johnson invites you to bring meaningful objects--such as photographs, memorabilia, crystals, jewelry, and more--and build small altars as offerings to your ancestors. Participants will be guided to contemplate how we claim, navigate, and hold space; how ancestral and historical memory informs where, when, and how we occupy spaces; and how we carry and honor our ancestors in the spaces we move through. The altars will be unified into a larger piece and installed as a collaborative work.
Current shows on view through February 5, Wed-Sat | 11am-5pm
