Federico Uribe (Colombian, b. 1962) creates magical creatures and playful installations from everyday objects. For the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, he will install a large-scale site-specific environment in the museum’s rotunda.

Jaume Plensa (Spanish, b. 1955) produces large-scale sculptures and installations that use language, history, literature and psychology to draw attention to the barriers that separate and divide humanity. In Talking Continents, Plensa used stainless steel to create a floating archipelago of 19 cloud-like shapes.
The Brooks has invited French artist Julien de Casabianca to enliven Memphis with his Outings Project. This next installation in the Brooks Outside series brings paintings from museum walls onto the streets, creating an opportunity to discover, appreciate, and understand artwork in a new way.
