This exhibition at the Wolfsonian-FIU, brings to question the notion of speed and its overall relationship with our daily lives. The show addresses this issue within a series of six galleries: Measure, Efficiency, Construction, Circulation and Transit, Mind and Body, and Pace.
Dark gray and light gray stripes create a rhythm throughout, controlling the tempo of people while moving through the museum by means of varying scales, intensities, and directions. Mirrors along gallery walls create ethereal and infinite spaces that allow for meditative moments. The overall design reinforces ideas inherent in the exhibition: the perception of speed, movement, and time.
Enhancing the pieces on exhibit while integrating them seamlessly into the show, the richly textured, racy, and distinctive installation design allows the museum visitor to experience the essence of speed.
Co-designed with Richard Miltner, Wolfsonian Exhibition Designer.
“Gonzalez has always worked closely with artists, and has designed a number of acclaimed exhibition installations. His work compels rather than competes, and that is an important quality when architecture meets art.”
