you are here forever...... is a group exhibition for Carol Jazzar´s unique exhibition space in Miami. Set in an iconic 1950’s converted garage as well as in her private home and garden, this exhibition, curated by Omar Lopez-Chahoud, will present a fresh look at the work of ten international artists, most of them based in NYC.
Within the last ten years, Miami has received increasing attention as a winter hub for international art fairs and become more cosmopolitan with an influx of Latin American and European newcomers. Disputes over the boundaries of recent urban developments, for example, continue to be heated topics.
Four of the ten invited artists will be in residence at Carol Jazzar’s space to produce new work in response to Miami's history and these urban developments, affording us the opportunity to explore the process from conceptualization to realization that are site specific to Miami.
In addition, six other artists have been selected by the curator to exhibit works ranging from video, drawings, paintings to sculptures.
Omar Lopez-Chahoud earned his MFA from Yale University School of Art in New Haven, CT. As an independent curator, his most recent exhibitions include: "NY/Prague6," at Futura Contemporary Art Center, Prague, Czech Republic; co-curated "Lush Life," which spanned nine galleries in New York, NY: Salon 94, Invisible Exports, Lehmann Maupin, Eleven Rivington, On Stellar Rays, Y gallery, Scaramouche, Sue Scott Gallery, and Collette Blanchard Gallery; and "The Pipe and the Flow," at Espacio Minimo in Madrid, Spain. He has written essays for several publications including the catalogues for Dynasty (2006) and Rewind/Re-Cast/Review (2005). Lopez-Chahoud has participated in curatorial panel discussions at Artists' Space, Art in General, MOMA PS1, and The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, and was a guest critic at Art Omi in 2007.
