Emi­ly Floyd: Far Rainbow

Hei­de Muse­um of Mod­ern Art

This exhi­bi­tion cat­a­logue accom­pa­nied the 2014 sur­vey exhi­bi­tion Emi­ly Floyd: Far Rainbow

Fea­tur­ing essays by Sue Cramer and Amelia Barikin on the utopi­an ideals and sci­ence fic­tion at the heart of Floy­d’s prac­tice, this beau­ti­ful illus­trat­ed cat­a­logue includes six­teen pages of instal­la­tion pho­tog­ra­phy and a com­plete list of works.

Described by direc­tor and CEO of Hei­de Muse­um of Mod­ern Art as a dynam­ic com­bi­na­tion of intel­lec­tu­al pur­suit and inno­v­a­tive sculp­tur­al play’. Floyd’s prac­tice draws on a mul­ti­tude of dis­ci­plines such as typog­ra­phy, lit­er­a­ture, edu­ca­tion and polit­i­cal his­to­ries. Far Rain­bow (2014) was a sur­vey exhi­bi­tion that explored the last 10 years of Floyd’s artis­tic career, look­ing at influ­ences drawn from her ideals of utopi­an community.
