Current Exhibitions

Hot Couture: Florida Jews on the Fashion Scene, 1800s to Today

EVIL: A Matter of Intent On view April 19, 2017 – October 1, 2017

Evil is not a cosmic accident. It does not just happen. Natural disasters happen. Disease, drought, accidents and epidemics happen. Evil is not a concept, rather it is a deliberate action or inaction. It is defined as a selfish act or behavior with the intent to benefit one’s self or one’s interests, irrespective of harm to others and without responsibility or remorse. The human capacity for evil, from biblical antiquity to present day is constant. The artists included in this exhibition address with clarity and passion the many faces of inhumanity, using an international visual language to challenge the concepts of heroes and villains. Reflecting diverse backgrounds, nationalities, faiths and mediums, the artists in this exhibition engage us in their search for understanding. Their art is a forum for remembering, expressing outrage and exerting a call to action. As they depict acts of evil intent on their consequences, these artists challenge us to reflect on our own responsibility today.
