The FIU Art + Art History Project Room in Bakehouse Art Complex there will be an opening of the artist residency titled “Machines” which includes 3 second year MFA candidates in studio practice.

The artists are Javi Cuarezma, Michael Gray, and Sterling Rook. They have worked collaboratively to develop a theme throughout the residency related to the idea of destruction as a form of creation using various different mediums. Gray is incorporating the action of shooting bullets through a canvas, Rook is experimenting with paint and makeshift bombs, and Javi is exploring movement and connection through the use of thread and an entire installation room.
