Rachel Louise Brown’s approach to photography is original and astonishing. She’ll share her way of viewing the world as a stage on Wednesday afternoon, and share a new show through April 28.
An artist-in-residence at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, England-born Brown decided to focus on the oft-advertised image of Florida as the land of escapism, entertainment and thrills, a symbol of the American Dream. Exploring local attractions alone and after hours, including the Palm Beach Zoo, Mar-a-Lago, Fright Nights at the South Florida Fairground and The Breakers, and juxtaposing portraits of young ballerinas, gymnasts and marching bands who are trained to entertain, she has produced a personal and intentionally objective view of these familiar landmarks in her solo exhibition, SIMULATIONS.
Free Artist’s lecture, 4-6 p.m., April 11th.
SIMULATIONS shows through April 28 at the Museum of the Palm Beach Photographic Center. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Closed on some holidays, call for schedule. (561) 253-2600.
