Xavier Cortada, recipient of a 2006-2007 National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers fellowship, traveled to Antarctica to implement a series of projects and installations. While there, the Miami artist created “Antarctic Ice Paintings” using glacier ice, sea ice, and sediment samples provided to him by scientists working in Antarctica.  “Global Coastlines,” a series of comprised of all of the artist’s Antarctic works on paper which had not yet been titled (and had never been shown) will be premiered and named at Pinecrest Gardens.  One is titled “Antarctica,”  another will be titled “Pinecrest.”  The remaining sixty works will be titled for another 60 global communities threatened by sea level rise. The exhibition is part of a broader participatory art project aimed at engaging residents in a conversation about the future of their properties.  

The exhibition will also serve to launch the Underwater HOA participatory public art project the artist is implementing with the Village of Pinecrest to engage their 6,000 households in addressing sea lever rise.  Learn more at www.underwaterHOA.com
