In his ongoing research project “The Forever Museum Archive”  (2011-Present), Onyedika Chuke uses objects to index histories related to public dissonance, international politics, and culture at large. FMA: The Untitled_Circa 2000 is an expansion of this project, featuring casts of the winged feet of Hermes, the Greek god of transitions. In dialogue with natural elements, icons of the ancient world transform meaning and tone, opening new avenues of vision.

The annual EAF Exhibition is a cornerstone of Socrates Sculpture Park’s robust visual arts programming, widely acclaimed for the ambition, breadth, and innovation of selected contemporary works. A singular opportunity for rising artists to experiment with ambitious, large-scale public art, EAF provides young artists with an open studio, monetary support, and institutional guidance.Diverse in subject, materials, and approach, each site-specific work will address social, ecological, or political issues that are pertinent to the past, present, and future of the park as it celebrates its 30th anniversary year.
