The Billboard Project returns to Locust Projects

Posted by Valerie Nahmad

By Locust Projects Locust Projects is pleased to announce its second annual Billboard Project. Argentinean-born, Miami-based artist Agustina Woodgate, has been selected to present site-specific artwork for billboards and bus shelters surrounding Miami’s Design District and Miami Beach in November and December 2011. A reception for the artist will be held at Locust Projects on Thursday, December 1, 7-10pm.

Conceived specifically for Locust Projects, 11:11 is the latest from a series of displaced landscapes that create surreal inversions of exterior and interior spaces.

Woodgate creates art that fosters interpersonal dialogue, from which meaning collectively emerges. Through a broad range of disciplines—including sculpture, installation, performance and collaboration—the artist’s work focuses on the relationship between individuals and their environment, and explores layers of physical and psychological space.

The Billboard Project is made possible with major support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Locust Projects’ exhibitions and programming are made possible with the support from: The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; Galt & Skye Mikesell; Hannibal Cox Jr. Foundation; Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, the Cultural Affairs Council, the Mayor, and the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners.
