Lemme walk across the room, the large-scale installation by New York-based artist Eric N. Mack (b. 1987) that premiered at the Brooklyn Museum in 2019, is being reimagined for NSU Art Museum’s grand second-floor gallery. Comprised of textile-based works, hung, mounted and draped in conversation with the museum’s architecture, Mack’s installation expands the boundaries of painting, sculpture, and fashion, dynamically reflecting and framing the rich visual experiences of the everyday as it also acknowledges the history of abstract (expressionist) painting.
Eric N. Mack: Lemme walk across the room is organized by NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale based on an exhibition originally presented by the Brooklyn Museum. The Brooklyn Museum presentation was curated by Ashley James, former Assistant Curator, Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum (currently Associate Curator, Contemporary Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum).
