South Florida Cultural Consortium

2017 Visual and Media Artist

Award Exhibition


Dual Frequency envisions artist initiatives that steer

creative culture in support of their communities. Many

participating artists curate, organize, perform, and

teach as extensions of their individual practices. This

zinealog explores in flux studio tables, promo images,

and proposals in an overarching stream-of-conscious

narrative. I declare that a zinealog is a hybrid zine

catalog, a small publication devoted to unconventional

subject matter and a survey of supplemental studio

material. The 14 South Florida Consortium fellows

are gracious with their time and will receive awards

of either $15,000 or $7,500 in 2017.

The South Florida Cultural Consortium is the largest

government-sponsored grant program for artists

living in Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe,

and Palm Beach counties. It provides significant

support to individuals who contribute to the cultural

fabric of a vibrantly expanding arts community with

no strings attached.

- Laura Marsh, Curator of Exhibitions,

Art and Culture Center/Hollywood

“It is exciting how this year’s SFCC artists highlight

a diverse range of collaborative practices, from IRL,

to Obsolete Media Miami, to Tile Blush, to Exile

Books, and Wild Beast Collective. When artists form

structures – whether bookshops, artist-run galleries,

archives or production agencies – it demonstrates

an effort to make a larger impact with their work

and create a sense of community. It’s generative.

While this is not a phenomenon isolated to South

Florida, this development nevertheless signals a

coalescing effort to create autonomy and agency

among our region’s artists.”

- Amanda Sanfilippo, Curator + Artist Manager,

Art in Public Places, Miami-Dade County Department

of Cultural Affairs

Gouveia often begins with imagery inspired by the natural landscape of South Florida,

which she then manipulates through the experimental digital printing process. The final

We are delighted and honored to present Dual Frequency,

The South Florida Cultural Consortium 2017 Visual and

Media Artist Award Exhibition. Curated by Art and

Culture Center/Hollywood’s Laura Marsh, the exhibition

features 14 artists who applied from five counties --

Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin and Monroe

counties.

Each year, more than 300 artists who live and work

throughout the five county region submit their applications

for consideration. Submissions are grouped by county.

A regional panel of visual and media art experts from

South Florida convene to provide an initial review of

the submissions. These recommendations are forwarded

to a national panel who is given the responsibility of

recommending the final recipients. Merit is determined

based on individual accomplishments as evidenced by

the work submitted for review, with the highest premium

placed on coherent bodies of work. The national panel’s

recommendations are reviewed and ratified by the South

Florida Cultural Consortium.

We congratulate this year’s winners and thank all of the

South Florida Cultural Consortium members who support

our region’s visual and media artists.

The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood provides a venue

for the arts through its gallery exhibitions, artist lectures

and workshops in its renovated 1924-circa Mediterranean

revival home as well as offering education programs and

performances. The Center, which is celebrating its 42-year

anniversary, is the third oldest arts nonprofit in Broward

County and is one of just eight organizations, out of more

than 800 art and cultural entities in Broward County,

to be designated a Major Cultural Institution by the

Broward County Commission.

Please enjoy this exhibition and zinealog, which celebrates

the works of these award-winning artists.
