Installation of The Other makes some Swoon

January 23, 2016 // by Denise M. Reagan

Installing a new exhibition is always exciting, but preparing to display the work of twenty-three women for The Other: Nurturing a New Ecology in Printmaking created quite a rush for the teams from MOCA Jacksonville and the University of North Florida.

The exhibition, now on display in the UNF Gallery at MOCA, was curated by UNF printmaking professor Sheila Goloborotko and features the work of well-known and emerging artists from around the country, many connected to the Tamarind Institute:

Goloborotko and Jim Draper, coordinator of UNF Galleries, framed many of the works with specific instructions from Tamarind.

One of the most dramatic moments of the installation was the unrolling of Swoon's two works in the exhibition, Braddock Steel and Katherine G. Both are large-scale cutout block prints on Mylar with coffee stain and hand painting that came rolled up in giant tubes.

Goloborotko and Draper will attend the opening reception forThe Other at 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, February 3, during Downtown Art Walk.
