 A site-specific multimedia installation and our first collaborative exhibition with the Polk Museum of Art at FSC, Sad Tropics will be produced exclusively by New Orleans artists and Florida natives Cristina Molina and Jonathan Traviesa. Inspired by Claude Levi-Strauss’ book title Tristes Tropiques, this exhibition focuses on the psychological landscape of paradise, the topics, and mythology of Florida.  Through photographic murals, videos, and a themed installation at the Polk Museum gift shop, the artists will celebrate and critique the eccentricities of their Floridian inspiration.

This exhibition is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
