Nesbit's most recent show, entitled FLOOD, was installed in an off-site temporary exhibition space in Omaha, Nebraska, continuing the artist's trajectory of installing works outside of a traditional museum setting.  The exhibition seeks to create a discussion between art and industrial architecture, using a historical part of Omaha, the downtown Standard Oil Building, and transforming its space to re-imagine how pieces of art can be shown.

Flood is antithetical to the contemporary landmark museum that requires overarching budgets to produce something new.  FLOOD utilizes the existing urban fabric as an alternative to create a museum out of the infrastructure that already exists, a museum that becomes interdependent through partnerships with local industry and small businesses.  This is the museum of the 21st century.
