Locust Projects is a not-for-profit exhibition space founded by three Miami artists in order to provide contemporary visual artists the freedom to experiment with new ideas and methods without the limitations of conventional exhibition spaces.
2013 marks Locust Projects' 15th Anniversary as an experimental exhibition space with a mission to serve artists and the community. To mark this milestone we will inaugurate Locust Talks, a new lecture series that brings visiting curators and directors from innovative institutions across the country and internationally. Each art professional will give a public lecture at our gallery space in Miami’s Design District, followed by individual studio visits with local artists. Curators and directors from diverse institutions across the country will talk about topics impacting artists and their communities, fostering a rigorous critical dialogue and deepening Miami’s connection to the contemporary art world.
The program launches on Thursday, January 17 with Anne Pasternak, President and Artistic Director, Creative Time, New York. The second lecture will take place on April 18 with Lauri Firstenberg, Director and Chief Curator of LAXART. Fairfax Dorn, Executive Director, Ballroom Marfa, Marfa, Texas, will lecture in September–October 2013. Locust Talks will continue through 2015 with major support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
