Techno-Intimacy invites the visitor to consider a porous boundary between the digital and physical--or "Away from the Keyboard" (AFK)--realms. By dissolving these barriers, the artists suggest a new form of connection: a connection both at corporeal and communal level, where limitlessness is possible. Curated by Jessica Borusky, UNF Gallery Director and Instructor.

Print +

Opens August 2022

Curated by Printmaking Professor Sheila Goloborotko, Print+ focuses on the importance of showcasing artwork where diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion are and create an essential and fertile ecology. In this gathering, artists coming from various backgrounds and multiple intersectionalities present works of protest and resistance. While some works are tame, others are transgressive—together, this exhibition emphasizes the contrast and abundance of young and mature contemporary voices. Print+ presents a wide variety of printed works that explore a diversity of printing methods. This exhibition includes multiples, fiber, sculpture, video, time-based, and performance.
