Virginia Overton at the MOCA North Miami

VIRGINIA OVERTON
Opening Reception: April 17, 2014
On view: April 18 – July 6, 2014

MOCA’s presentation of work by sculptor and installation artist Virginia Overton will encompass new and site-specific works that directly confront the exhibition space and its surrounding materials, which she sources for these pieces. These repurposed obsolete and ordinary objects often embody a heightened awareness of weight, gravity, and suspension. Overton (b. 1971) works from the tradition of post-Minimalism, creating powerful, poetic situations from simple constructions and materials.
