ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The Pensacola Museum of Art and the T.T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum, University of West Florida Historic Trust invited established, emerging, and nascent artists and photographers to submit to an open call for photographic-moving-image-based work to the lens-based exhibition, DocuFlorida II: Projections and Prints with featured artist, Noelle McCleaf.
DocuFlorida II: Projections and Prints with featured artist, Noelle McCleaf includes open call digital submissions that are projected with photographs by Florida-based photographer, Noelle McCleaf. The exhibition addresses the environment in rural and urban landscapes, and may offer an interpretive lens focused on socio-cultural and socio-spatial conditions of natural and built environments of our larger Southeastern U.S. region, an area deeply informed by river systems, gulf waters, and their associated industries and economic enterprises. By zooming in on a regional level, we hope to share this point of view with global communities at large. Within this photographic-moving-image-based experience, established, emerging, and nascent artists and photographers share space, offering a bright window into their collected stories, imagined futures, and documented realities.
DocuFlorida, began in 2017 as an annual exhibition of projected photographic images focused on the current environment and landscapes of Florida, the Gulf Coast, and the Southeast Region of the U.S. It is intended as a site-specific iteration of Documerica, the photographic documentary project that was sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency in the 1970s.
