Crisp-Ellert Museum Art Exhibit: New Sincerity 2.0
Tuesday, Jan. 18 to Thursday, Feb. 24, 2022 at Crisp-Ellert Art Museum
Stop by the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum on Flagler College's campus to view a special exhibit, New Sincerity 2.0, showcasing the work of Jillian Mayer.
A Miami-based artist and filmmaker, Jillian Mayer’s latest sculptures use materials such as glass, metal and other industrial materials. She builds on previous bodies of work that explore themes such as our relationship to technology and the digital world, environmental collapse and prepper subcultures.
Mayer is well known for tongue-in-cheek works that explore the complicated nature of our relationship to technology. She often uses humor harnessed with sincerity to address monumental issues.
Mayer’s Slumpies are a series of sculptures that position themselves as functional objects used to support our bodies as we interface with the digital world, i.e., scroll on our phones and take selfies. Frequently using unpretentious, sincere, industrial materials such as epoxy resin, foam, fiberglass, plastic and metal, the Slumpies’ awkward, ostensible lack of design stand in contrast to technology’s sleek forms, and comedically implicates our collective role in a slick, pervasive marketing culture.
The artist expands these ideas even further, both conceptually and materially through new sculptures, and a body of abstract work made from kiln-worked fused glass that will be included in New Sincerity 2.0.
Jillian Mayer has held solo exhibitions including Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha, Nebraska (2019), Kunst Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark (2019), University of Buffalo Art Museum, Buffalo NY (2018), Tufts University, Boston, MA (2018); Postmasters Gallery, New York, NY (2018); Pérez Art Museum, Miami, FL (2016); LAXART, Los Angeles, CA (2016); Utah Museum of Fine Art, Salt Lake City, UT (2014); and David Castillo Gallery, Miami, FL (2011 & 2016).
