Shannon Ebner: A Public Character

Institute of Contemporary Art Miami – ICA

08 Oct 201517 Jan 2016

Shannon EbnerA Public Character marks the first major museum presentation of the artist’s work comprising photography, sculpture, installation and video. The exhibition includes a comprehensive presentation of photographs from Ebner’s ongoing series “Black Box Collision A,” which isolates and documents the letter “A” from the vestiges of sign, advertisement, message, and other modes of visual communication.

In response to the context of the Miami Design District, the exhibition highlights the artist’s efforts to use her photography as an “anemic ad campaign,” and also features artist books, sculpture, and a new video about the advertisements. As the first museum exhibition to survey Ebner’s “Black Box Collision A” series, ICA Miami’s presentation demonstrates the artist’s efforts to build a catalogue of images, and to locate them at the intersection of the poetic, graphic, and photographic.
