The In Between : Book and Body
Thursday, November 8, 2018 6 - 9pm
There will be a curator’s talk with Beth Sheehan
during the opening reception at 8pm
The In Between: Book and Body employs expanded book forms to consider the spaces separating body, experience, and self. Within the work of Golnar Adili, Milcah Bassel, Sue Carrie Drummond, Ingrid Schindall, and Cynthia Nourse Thompson the struggle between cognizance and the physical plays out. This universal understanding of personhood provides an entry point for the viewer to relate their own experiences and decide for themselves how much of humanity is internal, external, or in the space between.
The book forms and prints in this exhibition act as a vehicle to examine these aspects of self within the body. We are guided through notions of memory, loss, desire, and relation to question our human experience. Rather than providing answers, these women provide us with a rich ground on which we are encouraged to ruminate in our own thoughts about the spaces In Between.

SPF South Florida is pleased to announce Pushing the Pull, an exhibition featuring the work of thirty artists whose artistic practice pushes the boundaries of printmaking. Through a series of print-driven works, Pushing the Pull celebrates both the tradition of printmaking and its contemporary applications by showcasing its diversity in execution and evolving potential. Whether working within relief, intaglio, artist books or installation, the selected works echo the recursive and cyclical nature of printmaking; using layer, reduction and transformation as an integral part of the process.
While print has always been rooted in a long history of innovators, contemporary processes turn the tradition on its head, introducing digital approaches and renewing age-old techniques by printing on and with alternative materials and tools. Whether they carve it, scratch it, mask it, transfer it, multiply it or discover it; Pushing the Pull forms a collective perspective that lays claim to the rich vitality of contemporary fine art printmaking.
