The Spring 2019 edition of InsideART focuses on the USFCAM exhibition The Visible Turn: Contemporary Artists Confront Political Invisibility.

The four international artists in The Visible Turn: Contemporary Artists Confront Political Invisibility, Karolina Sobecka, Bosco Sodi, Tavares Strachan, and Jorge Tacla, created installations in response to the phenomenon of cultural concealment. They combined the presentation of objects and performances inside an exhibition venue with artist-directed activities that engaged and supported communities in the Tampa Bay area affected by political or social invisibility. Together, the works refer to people and ideas that have crucially been omitted from today’s social, political, economic, and cultural processes. According to Duchamp’s logic, invisibility is impotence. What is powerful is to be seen. Curated by Christian Viveros-Fauné; organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum. The Stanton Storer Embrace the Arts Foundation is the major supporter of The Visible Turn: Contemporary Artists Confront Political Invisibility. Bosco Sodi, MURO is sponsored by The Gobioff Foundation and USF World. The opening night artist conversation is made possible by the generous support of Dr. Allen Root in honor of his late wife Janet G. Root. Film on the Lawn presented by CAM Club.
