Asile Flottant
Rirkrit Tiravanija
Tiravanija resurrects Le Corbusier's famous floating barge from Paris in a monumental installation fabricated in Thailand and reassembled piece by piece for the exhibition.  Asile Flottant was a floating asylum providing temporary overnight shelter for vagrants wandering the streets of Paris. Tiravanija's boat serves as a pavilion presenting t-shirts with political slogans and text designed by the artist as well as t-shirts that the artist has collected from his travels across the globe. Visitors to the gallery are able to embark the pavilion, which at 100 feet long is a half scale re-creation of the original, and experience the rehabilitation project from the perspective of the homeless who sought shelter by leaving terra firma.

Her groundbreaking work inspired new generation of photographers from Cindy Sherman to those who shoot swimsuit models outdoors for Sports Illustrated.

Clyde Butcher
From mountain waterfalls to lush green jungles, from grassy swamps to sandy beaches Butcher's photographs reveal the seductive beauty, subtle grandeur and majesty of America's landscape and now Cuba's untouched heritage. Butcher's photographs seem larger than life, like the artist himself, and compel us to step into the places he depicts. His unique talent is that he sees and feels vistas that sing the spirit of place.Oxbow Bend by Clyde ButcherClyde Butcher, Oxbow Bend, 2011, Silver Gelatin Photograph, 36 x 60
