America Series

Book Signing with Florence Montmare

Hero Image for America Series

About the event

Join us in the museum lobby for an evening book signing of Florence Montmare: America Series with Vienna-born, Swedish/Greek/American artist Florence Montmare.

The first monograph by Montmare showcases images made in 2021–22 while traveling across the United States from east to west (and back). Using an electric vehicle as a mobile studio, her 7000-mile roundtrip odyssey took her through nearly 30 states, on iconic roads such as Route 66 through the Midwest and I-10 across Texas and the South.

Montmare encountered individuals from all walks of life, often at her frequent charging stops, and took the opportunity to ask people about their relationship with nature, and hopes and dreams for the future. As a woman and immigrant, Montmare focused on female, minority, Native American, and LGBTQ perspectives and voices. The result is an unflinching, deeply personal yet universal portrayal of a transforming nation as the climate crisis alters the landscape.

Stop by the lobby from 5–7 PM to pick up your signed copy of Florence Montmare: America Series!

This event is presented with support from the Consulate General of Sweden in New York.
