The works will challenge what may be familiar perceptions of our surroundings through unconventional materials. Many of the materials these artists incorporate into their work are often sourced from traditional building materials, found objects and textiles. The exhibition proposes alternative methods of reconsidering our own presence and values.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">On view at the <strong></strong><strong>The Richard Shack Gallery | 800 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, FL 33139</strong></p> Thu, 08 Nov 2012 00:24:34 +0000 W.

This exhibition, done in collaboration with the Snite Museum of the University of Notre Dame, presents graphite drawings from the late 1960s to the 1990s that provide a comprehensive overview of his most recognizable imagery, a visual language instilled with the erotics of desire and vulnerability. His unexpected juxtapositions are the product of years of philosophical and aesthetic exploration that took him from Cuba's <em>vanguardia</em> to the post-war Surrealist circle of Paris and, starting in 1972, the gritty counter culture of downtown New York. This exhibition is the first ever to focus solely on these remarkable drawings.</p> Thu, 10 Jan 2013 18:18:21 +0000 - Art Wynwood International Contemporary Art Fair - February 14th, 2013 - February 18th, 2013 <table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" width="457"> <tbody> <tr class="sttr1"> <td align="left" width="373"><span style="font-size: small; font-family: arial black,avant garde;"><strong>GENERAL ADMISSION:</strong></span></td> <td align="center" valign="bottom" width="104"></td> </tr> <tr class="sttr2"> <td align="left" width="373">Friday, February 15</td> <td align="center" valign="bottom" width="104">12pm - 9pm</td> </tr> <tr class="sttr1"> <td align="left">Saturday, February 16</td> <td align="center" valign="bottom">12pm - 8pm</td> </tr> <tr class="sttr2"> <td align="left">Sunday, February 17</td> <td align="center" valign="bottom">12pm - 7pm</td> </tr> <tr class="sttr1"> <td align="left">Monday, February 18</td> <td align="center" valign="bottom">12pm - 6pm</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <h2>Admission</h2> <table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" width="457"> <tbody> <tr class="sttr2"> <td align="left">One day fair pass</td> <td align="center" valign="bottom">$15</td> </tr> <tr class="sttr2"> <td align="left" width="363">Multi-day fair pass</td> <td align="center" valign="bottom" width="94">$30</td> </tr> <tr class="sttr1"> <td align="left">Students 12-18 years and Seniors</td> <td align="center" valign="bottom">$10</td> </tr> <tr class="sttr2"> <td align="left">Children under 12 years accompanied by adult</td> <td align="center" valign="bottom">Free</td> </tr> <tr class="sttr1"> <td align="left">Groups 10 or more</td> <td align="center" valign="bottom">$10</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <h1 class="title-1">Exhibitors</h1> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">101/exhibit</span> <br /> Miami</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Aldo de Sousa Gallery</span> <br /> Buenos Aires</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Alfredo Ginocchio Gallery</span> <br /> Mexico City</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Art Nouveau Gallery</span> <br /> Miami, Maracaibo</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Arte Berri</span> <br /> Santo Domingo</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Ascaso Gallery</span> <br /> Miami</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Aureus Contemporary</span> <br /> Providence</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Barry Friedman Ltd.</span> <br /> New York</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Beatriz Esguerra Art</span> <br /> Bogota</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Black &amp; White Gallery / Project Space</span> <br /> New York</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">Black Square Gallery</span> <br /> Miami</div> <div class="exhibitor-link"><span class="LinkDealer">C.

Rafael Ferrer's long and prolific career has garnered recognition from arenas as diffused as Surrealism, process art and New Image painting. Astute at locating and engaging the dynamic fountainhead of artistic practice relevant to time and place, in one installation, Ferrer nurtures a powerful tributary of faces rendered on paper bags in crayon, pencil, paint and collage:  an extant, sui generis body of work that the artist has cultivated since 1972. The temptation to localize Ferrer's artworks within schools of thought has created interstitial spaces through which these paper bag pieces freely flow. Lushly evolved since their germinal exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (1972), Ferrer's new installation consists of dozens of paper bag works. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">At a time when object-orientated ontologies and material and spatial turns have interrogated the arts and humanities, Ferrer presents the steadfast complexity of human integrity. Far from a Ptolemaic revivalism, Ferrer's insistence upon drawing reveals an evolving ecology of human and nonhuman; tangible and virtual, organic and technological; practice and theory for which there exists no center. Indeed, Ferrer's works on paper may be understood as gestures rather than images. Deleuze and Guattari acknowledge that, while flesh is "competent in revealing sensation," it is ultimately adept at just that: a revelation, a "thermometer of a becoming." <br /><br /></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Viewing Ferrer's works as embodied gesture acknowledges their radical departure from depiction. Ferrer's dedication to drawing in a jamboree of affective expression and material honesty attempts to close the gap between being and telling and strategizes a reconciliation between the vitality of human experience and the contemporary network culture to which it necessarily signals.  The image becomes the gesture, and Ferrer's nearly sixty years of artistic practice becomes a crucial zeitgeist. In addition to the exhibition's focus on the artist's recent works on paper, Empire's Mirror (2012) is an intense work examining the historical and interpreting the current state of the artist's birthplace, Puerto Rico. The piece is composed of 95 blackboard paintings and incorporates his punditry, which rests on the grandiose insistence that in humor lays truth.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Rafael Ferrer was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and lives and works in Greenport, New York. In 2013, the artist's work will be included in Re-making When Attitudes Become Form, curated by Germano Celant for the Fondazione Prada, at Ca' Corner della Regina, Venice, Italy from May - November, 2013. The 1969 exhibition was originally curated by Harald Szeemann at the Kunsthalle Bern.  Among his museum exhibitions and book releases in 2012 is Rafael Ferrer, a monograph on the artist by Deborah Cullen.  In 2010, Ferrer's survey exhibition Retro/Active opened at El Museo del Barrio, New York which received important reviews in the New York Times by Roberta Smith, The Nation by Barry Schwabsky, and ArtNexus by Luis Camnitzer, among many others.  The artist's work has been included in numerous museum solo exhibitions including the ICA Boston; MCA Chicago; ICA Philadelphia; Whitney Museum of American Art; Philadelphia Museum of Art, and many others.  His work is in the permanent collections of public institutions such as Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; The Baltimore Museum of Art, Baltimore, MD; The Denver Art Museum, Denver, CO; Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, IN; Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg, Germany; Museo de Arte Moderno, Bogota, Colombia; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; The Museum of Modern Art, NY; Museo de Ponce, Ponce, Puerto Rico; Pasadena Museum, Pasadena, CA; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA; Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY, and others. Ferrer participated in important exhibitions of the new wave of conceptual, postminimal, process-oriented and "antiform" art in 1969 including Op Losse Schroeven (Square Pegs in Round Holes) at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and Anti-Illusion: Procedures/Materials at the Whitney Museum of American Art. The following year, Ferrer's work was included in the seminal exhibition Information at the Museum of Modern Art, NY.</p> Thu, 03 Jan 2013 23:52:18 +0000 Tyson Reeder - BFI - January 24th, 2013 - February 24th, 2013 <p style="text-align: justify;">Living in Miami, the idea of painting at the beach perhaps is corrupted by legions of Sunday painters whose work populate doctor's offices and cruise ships with their crude representations of a tourist’s dream. Contemporary Art in Miami often comments on the perpetually-under-construction shifts of this city – and the nature that often threatens to overtake it. Rarely does it examine the beach itself.<br /> <br /> Tyson Reeder is an artist with an expansive practice: with his brother Scott and fellow Milwaukee cohorts he started Club Nutz (a comedy club), the Dark Fair (an art fair in the dark), and the Milwaukee International (an art fair in a Wisconsin bowling alley). He is part of a group actively building community in the Midwest. As a painter, Reeder’s small-scale canvases have a darting energy akin to Impressionism painted on a jet plane. Reeder’s practice is an on-the-go yet in-depth exploration of medium, color, and vision.<br /> <br /> <i>Mr. Reeder creates florid, shimmering vistas without needing much surface area. The small works, like “Green Tree” and “Pink Horizon,” could be fragments of a Bonnard … its pastel palette and palm trees, suggests Polke in Key West. </i><br /> -Karen Rosenberg, NY Times, 2011<br /> <br /> <i>What makes it all work is Mr. Reeder's confidence with color and his concentrated mixings of drawing mediums -- crayon, marker, pencil, watercolor, synthetic paint. If the images sometimes seem childlike, the surfaces are anything but; the best of them are deliberately wrought and beautiful -- and in their own way, deadly serious</i>. <br /> -Roberta Smith, NY Times, 2004<br /> <br /> Coming from cold and windy Chicago, Reeder imagines his perfect art holiday is to get away and paint on the beach. In December 2011 &amp; December 2012, Tyson &amp; Scott Reeder set-up al fresco on the Deauville’s beachfront, sticking canvases in the sand and painting among the NADA Art Fair revelers. Their Beach Painting Club brought artists together to freely observe, frolic &amp; paint. The paintings made during the 2012 event were sold as a Hurricane Sandy Benefit. Artists Spencer Sweeney, Aurel Schmidt, Jim Drain, Jess Fuller, Naomi Fisher (and many more) painted with the Reeders for this cause. BFI co-sponsored the 2012 event with the NADA pool party.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">---</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Tyson Reeder’s expansive practice includes co-directing an art fair with no lights (Dark Fair at the Swiss Institute NY 2008 and Dark Fair Cologne at the Kolnischer Kunstverein 2009), co-directing an art fair in a bowling alley (Milwaukee International Art Fair 2006 &amp; 2007) and hosting Club Nutz (in Milwaukee, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago 2010, and at the Frieze Art Fair, London 2010). As an artist Reeder has had solo shows at Daniel Reich Gallery, NY; Green Gallery, Milwaukee; Jack Hanley Gallery, LA; and has exhibited at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, NY; Kavi Gupta Gallery, Chicago; Canada Gallery, NY; Willy Wonka Gallery, Oslo; David Zwirner Gallery, NY; John Connoly Presents, NY; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Reeder is an artist and a community builder in the Midwest, a kindred spirit to the BFI. We are so excited to host his show!</p> Thu, 31 Jan 2013 22:27:32 +0000 George Luks, William Glackens, John Sloan, Everett Shinn, Guy Pène du Bois, George Bellows - NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale - October 20th, 2012 - February 24th, 2013 <p style="text-align: justify;">The Ashcan painters of early twentieth century America painted the full reality of urban living – blemishes included. George Luks, William Glackens, John Sloan, Everett Shinn, Guy Pène du Bois and George Bellows were leaders of the group and their works are included in this stunning exhibition of paintings and works on paper that will be installed in the Museum’s Glackens Galleries.</p> Thu, 31 Jan 2013 21:50:33 +0000 Mike Kelley - The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum - October 17th, 2012 - February 24th, 2013 <p>Mike Kelley is often acknowledged to be one of the most influential and significant artists of our time. Kelley created highly symbolic, representational and ritualism pieces that vastly transcended all mediums such as film, music, drawings, sculptures, collage and performance. His works frequently dealt with class, youthful rebellion and popular culture and attacked the sanctity of cultural attitudes toward religion, history, education and family.</p> Fri, 22 Feb 2013 14:50:04 +0000
