The Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida celebrates creativity, discovery and inquiry through its newest exhibition “Divergent Convergence” opening March 31. Offered as part of the University of Florida’s campus-wide, year-long celebration of invention and creativity, the exhibition investigates how various artists discover and question the past, reinterpret the present, and imagine the future. “Divergent Convergence: The Arts of Creativity, Discovery & Inquiry” will be on view from March 31 through July 21, 2019.
The exhibition explores the work of more than 55 artists from 18 countries, including their divergent and convergent thinking processes behind the production of the works of art. The wide range of media—from ceramics, light sculpture and film, to paintings, prints and drawings—allows for the convergence of diverse voices and ideas.
The Harn will provide multiple ways for visitors to interact with the art on view. These opportunities include viewing performances and participating in activities developed by the Gator VR (Virtual Reality) Club, UF Professor Dr. Elif Akçalı, and the Harn “Creatives-in-Residence”—Choreographer-in-Residence, Composer-in-Residence, and Poet-in-Residence. These programs, developed through a collaboration of museum educators and curatorial staff, with University of Florida faculty and students, provide new artistic experiences for both the creators and viewers.
Admission is free. Hours are T-F: 11 am – 5 pm; Sat: 10 am – 5 pm; Sun: 1 – 5 pm. The Harn is closed on Mondays.
