Rip Current: An Exhibition by Michael Loveland and Serge Toussaint

BFI

11 Sep 201531 Oct 2015

A rip current is formed when water coming ashore is channeled back to sea through a narrow passage, taking all within its path. A rip current can also refer to today’s world topics and current events that flood our news feeds and headlines daily.

Michael Loveland has been working with the concept of “levels of communication” for many years, from hand painted local shop signs to corporate billboard ad campaigns. The delivery of media content is the core of Loveland’s art practice.

Serge Toussaint is best known for his hand painted murals and store signs found all over Miami, mostly in the Little Haiti neighborhood. His use of imagery, color and style is instantly recognizable and has made Serge a local legend

This exhibition has been a long time in the making: Loveland has wanted to collaborate with Serge since first seeing his murals 13 years ago. The exhibition “Rip Current” will be the first time these two artists will be collaborating. They will be creating a body of work that will consist of large billboard vinyls and painted collages, as well as sculptures.

Rip Current will also feature a Weird Miami bus tour with Toussaint and Loveland, a panel discussion of the artists’ work as well as a workshop led by Toussaint.
