LOWE ART MUSEUM: DUANE MICHALS - THE PORTRAITIST
Through September 25th
"Duane Michals: The Portraitist" presents the first comprehensive overview of photographic portraits by one of the medium’s most influential artists. Best known as a pioneer who broke away from established traditions of documentary photography in the 1960s, Michals is widely recognized both for the balance he strikes between imposing his style on a subject and allowing his sitters to express themselves, as well as for the sequences he assembles to convey personal visual narratives, often adding handwritten messages and poems on the photographic print surface.

POMPANO BEACH ARTS: MEMORIES AND MYTHS BY ALEJANDRA ABAD
Through September 30th
This solo exhibition is a collection of animated works that relate to folklore, myth, national idealism, and the loss of identity in hopes of gaining a new hybrid identity. “In reflecting on my own experiences of memory, place, land, and home, these works also connect to our relationship with ecology and environmental futures. I use organic materials, sculptural elements, collage, and printmaking techniques to create animations that represent transformation and cycles of impermanence. My content has historic roots in anticolonial movements that are tied to international surrealism and magical realism, particularly from South America and the Caribbean.”-Alejandra Abad.
