Remember to React: 60 Years of Collecting is the first comprehensive installation of NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s collection. Presented on the occasion of the institution’s 60th anniversary, this exhibition will occupy the Museum’s more than 28,000 square-feet of galleries and will open to the public in two phases on September 9, 2018 and November 18, 2018. The exhibition will be on view through June 2019.
Representing various periods and developments in the history of art, Remember to React also traces the collection’s growth from its origins to today. The exhibition is curated by NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s Director and Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater and its Sunny Kaufman Senior Curator Barbara Buhler Lynes, Ph.D, with consulting curators.
The exhibition takes its title from a recent acquisition to the collection of conceptual artist Jenny Holzer‘s 1984 Survival Series, a simple plaque embossed with the text “Remember to React.” Both a commentary on contemporary life and call for participation, Holzer uses the word “react”
