Event Type: Art Exhibitions
Age Group(s): Adult (18 yrs.+)
Date: 11/12/2016 - 4/1/2017
 A Utopian Jungle of His Own focuses on artist Gustavo Novoa’s time in Miami during his 40‑year artistic career. Novoa believes the ultimate goal of his art is ecological in nature, and aims at improving our awareness toward the animals he portrays. By infusing them with a soul, by having them imitate us and gently mock us, it might—perhaps—tame the predator within and turn us into the safekeepers that we should be. From the exhibition one will see that Novoa is a keen observer of modern society, its fixations and even its obsessions. Novoa translates what he sees by creating vignettes of expressive and exuberant jungles with curious animals that gaze out at the viewers, always questioning the viewer, society and humanity in general.
