The exhibition focuses on his practice during the decade of the 1970s, highlighting Espinoza&acute;s significance within the Latin American avant-garde of that period. Currently living in Florida, Espinoza is known for his nonfigurative, humorous and irreverent manipulations of grid forms, that he began developing in the late-1960s. These works were produced as a reaction to the dominant tendencies of geometric abstraction and Kinetic art in Venezuela during these decades. <em>Unruly Supports (1970 &ndash; 1980) </em>traces these seminal works, which include his large <em>Impenetrable </em>(1972)&mdash;an installation that subverted the modernist cannon, challenged Kinetic art, and engaged post-minimalist strategies&mdash;and explores Espinoza&rsquo;s active involvement in the evolution of abstraction during the post-war period. The title of the exhibition refers to the countless experiments Espinoza made to produce his emblematic black grid supports, as he folded, stretched, and cut to this geometric form, contaminating this iconic symbol of modern art.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">"Eugenio Espinoza: Unruly Supports (1970 &ndash; 1980)" is curated by Jes&uacute;s Fuenmayor.</p> Tue, 06 Jan 2015 16:05:28 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list Group Show - Museum of Contemporary Art - North Miami (MOCA NOMI) - March 21st 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left">This group exhibition builds on the work:&nbsp;<em>Temporary Autonomous Zones (TAZ)</em>&nbsp;by Hakim Bey (Peter Lamborn Wilson). The project is curated by Richard Haden.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left">TAZ &ldquo;alludes to creating temporary spaces that elude formal structures of control&hellip;thus creating the foundation for authenticity and spontaneity&rdquo;. Richard Haden proposes to articulate the exhibition through TAZ and the ways in which it has to do with recreating an &ldquo;intentional community&rdquo; (IC) which relates to how past communities purposefully organized in various forms as collectives, to succeed as small villages or townships, guilds, radical groups,&nbsp;<em>et cetera</em>, that eventually gave way to controlling socio-economic structures, which eventually led to the loss of authentic empowerment.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left">Richard Haden / Curator<br /> Cristy Almaida / Assistant Curator</p> Mon, 02 Feb 2015 15:29:59 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list - Armory Art Center WPB - March 27th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Exhibition of work by Armory students in all media.

Among the most important European avant-garde groups of the 20th century, the Surrealists explored the unconscious mind and creative expressions that were tied to the irrational. They were also, as revealed by Lutker&rsquo;s research, prone to physical, public fights incited by intellectual arguments and personal slights. Lutker has identified seven fights that she is investigating through sculptural installations. She has realized two of these projects: the first one in three parts, including gallery presentations in Los Angeles and Zurich as well as a performance at Performa 13 in New York, and one as part of the 2014 Whitney Biennial.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For P&eacute;rez Art Museum Miami, Lutker will realize the third work in her series. Her installation will respond to the architecture of PAMM&rsquo;s unique auditorium space. In addition to her newly commissioned artwork for the project gallery, Lutker will debut a performative lecture focused on the Surrealist fight she has been researching.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> Tue, 06 Jan 2015 16:07:54 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list
