An upcoming exhibit at Ringling College’s Sarasota Art Museum explores themes of environmentalism, socioeconomic justice, and more. The exhibit, Chakaia Booker: Surface Pressure, will be on display from July 16-Oct. 29. The solo exhibition will feature select prints, paintings, and sculptures that highlight four themes: connection, accumulation, transformation, and juxtaposition. Recycled tires, her most iconic signature materials, communicate themes of diversity, consumerism, industrialization, and more. “Surface pressure” alludes to the process of making and the physical force the artist exerts to manipulate the materials.
