Presented in partnership with ArtCenter/South Florida

On View October 12 – December 17, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION Thursday October 12  | 6pm-9pm

Born in Quebec, Miami-based artist and ArtCenter Alumna Veronique Cote works in textile, photography, drawing and painting to create sketches of America from the point of view of a foreigner.

The works presented in this exhibition are inspired by myths, fairy tales and iconic movies. Together they form a series of distorted happy endings that use popular characters in an ironic way in order to talk about societies of consumption and exclusion. Grouped around 3 large paintings, Here My Pretties, Killjoy Swirl, and Willy Nilly, these works speak to America’s ability to be wondrous, beautiful, scary and ridiculous all at the same time.

The opening reception will feature a film screening of King Kong (1933).
