Artist in Residence: Aaron T Shephan

Meet Loews Miami Beach Hotel Art Collective Artist in Residence, Aaron T Stephan.

Aaron presents a wry look at the world around him – focusing on the complex web of information carried by everyday materials and objects. His recent work explores the role of public monuments, the impact of their history on public discourse and the possibility to reposition them for a new future.

Aaron was a Marguerite Zorach fellow at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, a Louise Bourgeois fellow at Yaddo, an artist in residence in the Arts/Industry Program at Kohler, and participated in the 2023 Digital Stone Residency in Gramolazza, IT. He graduated with an MFA from Maine College of Art in 2002.

His work has been featured at venues across the US including Locust Projects, DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Samson Projects, The Portland Museum of Art, John Michael Kohler Art Center, California Center for the Arts, Farnsworth Art Museum, Weitz Center at Carlton College, Institute of Contemporary Art at MECA, DUMBO Center for the Arts, amongst others.

Installation by Aaron T Stephan

Structures of Revolution

December 5 - 10
Aluminum, 6 x 6 x 12ft, 2021
Palm Court

Structures of Revolution merges three famous monuments: Tatlin’s Tower, Eifel Tower and the interior structure of the Statue of Liberty. The history of these structures is intensely interrelated as is their vision. Together they tell a story of revolution, industry, power, and collective identity.

This impactful piece by Stephan borrows iconic formal components from these three works to expose their shared history, as well as their shared ideals for revolution. Together, they form a dynamic intertwining whole that encompasses a swirling century of ideals.
