Justin Long's "Bow Movement" at Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, Sept. 7
A whale of a boat.
Justin H. Long is an artist of the true white man Miami sort. To call someone a cracker is just plain rude, so we'll just call him Old Florida. Long has always infused his work with a sense of humor and playfulness, sometimes to the point of impish distraction. Through different mediums, he manages to be subversive and accessible at the same time, and often takes on themes related to South Florida. Long does all of that and more with his upcoming exhibition Bow Movement.
Say it out loud. Bow Movement.
"It's exciting working with him because he provides a unique experience," says fellow artist and Art and Culture Center employee Misael Soto. He believes Long sees "the entire exhibition as an artwork unto itself. As opposed to work hanging on the wall. To him, the mood, the lighting, the text panels, all of the imagery you get even before you come in the door is all part of an experience." The experience of a bow movement.
Justin H. Long: Bow Movement. Opening takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 7. The show is open through Oct. 21.
