Florida Flags (from the Sad Tropics series)

2021

This series of 5 flags created by artists Cristina Molina + Jonathan Traviesa, will be raised in rotation and change each week of the exhibition.  Originally exhibited as part of a photo + video installation titled, Sad Tropics, these flag works explore the idea of “utopian escape” and signify the “psychological landscape of paradise.” The exhibition's title was inspired by Claude Levi-Strauss’s book Tristes Tropiques, and was featured in Art in America and BURNAWAY.
