NOW ON VIEW:

Molecule Dance by Damián Ortega (Pictured)

Born in Mexico City in 1967, Damián Ortega is a leading Mexican contemporary artist. He first came to widespread attention at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003 with Cosmic Thing, a Volkswagen Beetle perfectly dismantled and suspended from the ceiling, an ironic deconstruction of one of the cult objects of Mexican consumer culture. Since then, with his sense of humor and wit, Ortega has become known for the deconstruction of familiar objects and processes, altering their functions and transforming them into artworks that offer novel experiences and scenarios.Ortega's work always plays with scale, ranging from the molecular to the cosmic, and this Project Atrium installation combines both. Drawing from an intimate recollection of putting his daughter to sleep, with a mobile over the bed, the artist has conceived a suspended rotating double helix. Reminiscent of the human DNA structure, this molecular choreography describes, in the artist's own words, “the passing of time as a continuous, daily movement that goes on for years.”

Doug Eng: Structure of Nature | Nature of Structure

Structure of Nature | Nature of Structure is a retrospective of the work of Jacksonville artist Doug Eng. Through his art and advocacy, Eng highlights the need to preserve our endangered wetlands and forests in Northeast Florida.

Left Side Right Side

Left Side Right Side considers the genre of portraiture and its articulation in contemporary art. Taking its title from the late Joan Jonas' early exploration of the self-portrait through video (Left Side Right Side, 1972), it relates directly to one of the MOCA collection's thematic directions.

Techno-Intimacy

This UNF Gallery showcases the work of artists Lena Chen, Myra Lilith Day, deSolidState, Edgar Fabian Frias, Michael Neumann, and Tabitha Nikolai. Through the use of digital and internet platforms, these artists attempt to carve out new pathways for knowledge-production, aesthetics, cognition, spirit, and viewership.
