The paintings shown were produced in dialogue with the expressive, gestural often naive-like qualities that are a relished quality of childhood. New York City-based artist and Yale MFA graduate Nate&nbsp;Heiges will exhibit a recent body of large works on paper inspired by language. Heiges&rsquo; series&nbsp;explores memory and nostalgia and repression in its layering and texture. His work is included in the permanent collection of The Drawing Center, New York; this will be his first exhibition in Miami.</p> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:39:34 +0000 Stevens Dossou-Yovo, Jorge Enrique, Toma Jankowski, Jerome Lagarrigue - Waltman Ortega Fine Art - Miami - June 11th - July 5th Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:34:42 +0000 Beki Basch, Laura Hughes - Locust Projects - July 9th - July 30th <p class="date-alt" style="text-align: justify;">Opening reception: Saturday, July 9, 7:30pm</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Locust Projects is pleased to present <em>Colorado</em>, a new project by this year&rsquo;s LAB MFA artists, Beki Basch and Laura Hughes, who have been selected to develop and produce their project <em>Colorado</em> in LP 03. This is the second year that Locust Projects has held a national open call for the LAB MFA program and we are thrilled to have received proposals from students attending a broad range of schools across the United States.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Basch and Hughes have produced an exhibition consisting of imagery relating to cars and the American landscape. Friends of ten years standing, who studied together at MICA and previously shared a studio space, <em>Colorado</em> is the first project on which the two artists have collaborated. Titled for the approximate geographical halfway point between Basch&rsquo;s home in Baltimore, Maryland on the east coast, and Hughes in Eugene, Oregon on the west coast, <em>Colorado</em> is a sculptural interpretation of the experience of taking a cross-country roadtrip.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Drawing on the imagery of vinyl seats, bumper stickers, motor racing, and the detritus of long car journeys &ndash; such as the coins and candy wrappers which are often excavated from between the car seats on subsequent rides &ndash; the installation is intended to elicit familiar personal and cultural memories of taking a long roadtrip. The car&rsquo;s interior becomes a world within a wider world, and time seems to pass in a new and different way. Small objects arranged around the space offer a sense of the intimacy of the car&rsquo;s interior. The wider installation acts as a landscape, with large-scale sculptural pieces dominating the space like mountains. Found objects &ndash; many of which have been collected from Miami&rsquo;s roadsides &ndash; can be seen embedded in some of the resin objects, including one of two sculptures that take the form of an winner&rsquo;s podium. These two podiums have been conceived as commemorative portraits of Mich&egrave;le Mouton, the woman who won the Pike&rsquo;s Peak Hill Climb in 1985, an annual race that is unofficially known as &ldquo;The Race to the Clouds&rdquo;.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>ABOUT BEKI BASCH </strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Beki Basch (b. 1987, South Brunswick, New Jersey) received her BFA from MICA in 2009 and is currently an MFA candidate at The University of Maryland. Her mainly project based practice explores ideas of history, relationships, and interconnectivity. Basch has exhibited in Baltimore, where she resides, and will open a new solo show in the city later this year. She has also shown her work in Ireland.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>ABOUT LAURA HUGHES </strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Laura Hughes (b. 1987, Buffalo, New York) is an MFA candidate at the University of Oregon. She received her BFA from MICA in 2009. Hughes makes objects, drawings, and texts, which she sees as components to be assembled, arranged, and re&shy;arranged. Hughes is particularly interested in how we make connections with places. She has exhibited her work in Eugene, Oregon; Baltimore, Maryland; and Richmond, Virginia.</p> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:28:27 +0000 - Locust Projects - July 9th - July 30th <p class="date-alt" style="text-align: justify;">Collaborative summer project by south florida high school students <br /> Opening reception: Saturday, July 9, 7:30pm</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Anastasia Anissmova</strong>, Design and Architecture Senior High; <strong>Glysed Barboza</strong>, Miami Arts Charter; <strong>Maya Benedetti</strong>, Design and Architecture Senior High; <strong>Wanda Carreras</strong>, New World School of the Arts; <strong>Daisy Chen</strong>, Design and Architecture Senior High; <strong>Gabriel Chez</strong>, Design and Architecture Senior High; <strong>Jonathan Cohen</strong>, Dr. Michael M.

This year, 23 South Florida high school students selected from an open call will have the opportunity to create a collaborative exhibition at Locust Projects in Miami&rsquo;s Design District.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Under the direction of Miami-based contemporary visual artists Monica Lopez de Victoria (of the TM Sisters) and Francesco Lo Castro, students are given the opportunity to create a collaborative exhibition at Locust Projects and manage all aspects of the show&rsquo;s production during a three-week summer intensive. Students also visit art institutions on guided field trips and interact with invited members of the local art community at Locust Projects.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The <em>LAB</em> program extends Locust Projects&rsquo; longstanding commitment to experimentation and innovation in artistic practice to the next generation of South Florida artists. <em>LAB</em> promotes contemporary art and project-based learning as a means to encourage creativity, critical analysis, and problem solving, while also helping participants to develop their communication skills. This unique initiative allows young artists to learn the practical aspects and experience the excitement of creating a public exhibition in collaboration with their peers.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The <em>LAB</em> exhibition project culminates with an opening reception where students&rsquo; parents, teachers, and friends are invited to celebrate and mingle with Miami&rsquo;s art community.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">LAB is funded by the Alvah H. and Wyline P. Chapman Foundation, The Cowles Charitable Trust, and The Children&rsquo;s Trust.

For centuries, social conditions have placed women and the roles associated with the feminine character, in the house.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Using technology and sculpture as environments, <em>RPM Project</em> focuses on creating monumental narratives from traditionally feminine rituals. In this four-part exhibition, they will create metaphorical realities that address classic dilemmas for women and push the boundaries in today&rsquo;s feminine culture.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Through video, sound and sculpture, RPM&rsquo;s installations serve as pathways in an imaginary house, creating multi-sensory experiences that lead you through a labyrinth within a woman&rsquo;s psyche.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">RPM is made up of Rhonda Mitrani, Patricia Schnall Gutierrez and Marina Font.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:09:26 +0000 Szilárd Cseke - Boca Raton Museum of Art - October 18th - January 8th, 2017 <p style="text-align: justify;">To bring our suite of Hungarian exhibitions up to the present, the Boca Museum&rsquo;s Curator of Contemporary Art, Kathy Goncharov, will work with Szil&aacute;rd Cseke, the Hungarian representative to the 2015 Venice Biennale, as he constructs an entirely new site-specific installation.

He began his career by making a name for himself through charismatic performances where he "channeled" the 2,000-year-old spirit of a shaman named Carlos in front of live audiences and through media broadcasts that have been viewed by millions of people around the world. These performances were the subject of a video work presented in the 2004 Whitney Biennial, and at a solo exhibition at The Kitchen in New York. Alvarez was detained in Krome Detention Center in Miami for identity theft for two months in 2012. During this time he created a series of portraits of his fellow detainees using ballpoint pens and whatever paper he could find. The portraits not only capture the physical being of his sitters, but also their powerful stories.</p> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:57:53 +0000 Mark Creamer, Holly Lerner, Alfred Schepis, Jill Weintraub - Boca Raton Museum of Art - August 17th - September 18th <p style="text-align: justify;">Exhibition of photographs by Mark Creamer, Holly Lerner, Alfred Schepis, and Jill Weintraub (presenters of the Boca Photo talks).</p> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:54:02 +0000
