In one in­stal­la­tion by artists Gisela Motta and Le­an­dro Lima, the Sao Paulo, Brazil, cou­ple built a home­made bomb (non­work­ing) from alu­minum soda cans, red pack­ag­ing tape, cig­a­rette car­tons and laun­dry-de­ter­gent bot­tles. Oc­tavio Abún­dez’s “Nat­u­raleza Muerta” de­picts a book­shelf bear­ing imag­i­nary fu­ture book ti­tles (“2042-2048 Euro­pean Civil War,” “Peak Oil”). Other works in the show, cu­rated by ArtCen­ter’s for­mer artis­tic di­rec­tor Su­san Cara­ballo, are from South Florida artists An­to­nia Wright, Donna Con­lon and Jonathan Harker, and tackle themes of racism, po­lice bru­tal­ity, ter­ror­ism and pol­lu­tion.
