SKYWAY 2020A Contemporary Collaboration
May 30 through August 16, 2020
Skyway 2020 is the second iteration of the exhibition celebrating the diversity and talent of artistic practices in the Tampa Bay area. It is also an exercise in collaboration, as it is shared between four institutions: Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the Tampa Museum of Art, and the USF Contemporary Art Museum. Working together, curators from these institutions are proud to provide context for artwork being made in Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, and Sarasota Counties within the past year.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue featuring contributions from each institution, as well as guest juror Claire Tancons, an independent curator and scholar whose practice takes a global focus on the conditions of cultural production. Tancons has curated biennials around the world, including Prospect.1, New Orleans; the 2008 Gwangju Biennial; and the 2019 Sharjah Biennial.
Participating artists will be announced in mid-February.
