EVENTS & EXHIBITIONS
Locust Projects | Mette Tommerup Performance: Liminal
new outdoor performance by Miami-based artist Mette Tommerup in conjunction with her large-scale installation, Made by Dusk. Viewed from the rear parking lot of Locust Projects, the performance includes a video projection and an activation of the artists’ monumental canvases from the roof of the building. On the ground are a grid of dry ice cubes, creating a hazy fog through sublimation that captures the light, enveloping viewers in a warm, golden glow.
“Visitors can make a symbolic offering to the Nordic Goddess Freya at dusk and contemplate their inner wishes and desires”. - Mette Tommerup
Visitors will be able to participate in the performance by pouring honey onto the blocks of dry ice, instantly freezing the honey and creating a dreamy, aerial cityscape.
Tuesday, December 1, from 6-8pm with appointments available for activations every 30 minutes
Liminal is free and open to the public on a socially-distanced basis, maximum capacity of 25 guests at a time. Masks are required. Walk-ins welcome based on capacity

Spinello Projects | Reginald O’Neal’s AT THE FEET OF MOUNTAINS.
The show, consisting of a suite of small to large-scale oil paintings painted between 2018-2020, is influenced by personal experiences, as well as the lives of people around him. With a journalistic lens and classical approach, Reginald paints intimate fragments of his life. Paintings range from a landscape painting of the public housing project in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood, where he has lived his entire life, to a quiet still-life of his beloved grandmother’s glasses, to a series of works based on a life changing incident that touches on the generational repetition of domestic violence in his family. Reginald explains, “My desire is to embrace the unappreciated, defaced and misrepresented, as well as illustrate the true beauty within my community.

Primary Projects | Wade Tullier
Storytelling, the social and cultural activity of sharing stories, is an oral form of language, predating the written word, associated with the practices and values essential to developing one's identity.
Much in how our ancestors pass down anecdotes to shape the community's morals and educate younger generations, Tullier's practice mimics these verbal processes. The repetition he puts forth develops into the physical myth, adding a multitude of layers to the dominant stories surrounding Tullier's work.
"I make sculptures that depict animals, figures, phenomena, and everyday objects. They are always recognizable but become elusive as I continue to reinterpret each piece. In this way, my sculptures act as characters in oral history: they transform as they are retold. While these objects remain familiar and are easily identifiable, the combinations of works remain ambiguous. They echo the layered, nonlinear structure of memory as it is excavated through storytelling."

Emerson Dorsch | Frances Trombly:
All This Time
Three works, each framing fabrics made with madder (red), indigo (blue), and weld (yellow) respectively, hang with the presence and scale of history paintings on the south, west, and north walls. Each corresponds in its dimensions to an old master painting. The fabric’s placement echoes its two-dimensional representation in a particular Baroque painting’s composition. For her new series, Trombly observed that vividly tinted and artfully draped fabrics which played a crucial role in Western art history were made by individuals who remain unknown.
Fabrics’ folds and implied motion simultaneously buttressed structural integrity and signaled increasing artistic virtuosity from Ancient Greek sculpture to sculptures in the Baroque period, all the way to Neoclassical sculpture in the 19th century. Rendering fabrics’ textures and colors became an obsession for Renaissance and Baroque painters like Lavinia Fontana, Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, and Artemisia Gentileschi because the ability to do so well was a point of competition between artists. Rendering details that indicated luxury was as important to patrons of art then as it is now.

Tile Blush | GeoVanna González & Jonathan González | UNRESOLVED
Throughout 2020, many of us have been forced to restructure our domestic spaces into work/living realms. And we have had to adapt not just our physical space, but our mental space too. Our sleep cycles, our time management, our leisure periods – all have been confined, all have been reprogrammed. The boundaries between work and leisure, between labor and rest, between public and private, are more compromised than ever.
Gonzalez & Gonzalez’s UNRESOLVED collection explores how design and art are complicit in that reprogramming, and how they can act as tools of resistance. The ur-object of each piece in the collection is a tool of creative labor.
The collection makes visible the ways in which tools and programs (from pencils to screens, chairs to software) are used to firmly resolve and repose us, to sit us down, to tie us to capitalist function.

Nina Johnson | Rochelle Feinstein: Fredonia!
An exhibition of new and recent paintings by Rochelle Feinstein, opening on November 20th and remaining on view through January 9th. Feinstein is a legendary painter, whose work and ideas about abstraction have influenced generations of artists. Over the past four decades, she has deflated the dogmas of modernism with humor and verve, liberally borrowing from different schools of painting, as well as other mediums, including drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video, and installation. Though it takes myriad forms, her singular project always centers painting within culture at large.
Fredonia! refers to a fictional utopia, a 19th-century name for the United States that never took off, and a failed country in the 1933 Marx Brothers film Duck Soup. The exhibition features several recent bodies of work which reflect upon this time of turmoil, anxiety, and gallows humor. Feinstein uses the motif of the rainbow—a visual trope and cultural artifact first explored while in residence at the American Academy in Rome—to present works rich in color and connotation.

Resting occurs when action ceases, in order for action to continue resting must take place.
In ´Resting Behavior, a group of local Miami artists explores a different approach to minimalism through their own medium, guided by the nature of less is more. Consequently, creating more to be perceived.
While Mininmalism is based on the concept that work is meant to be simply as it is in a space of their own, each piece in the show has its own conversation with the audience. Presenting even plat work in a three dimensional space.

ICA Miami | Lyle Ashton Harris: Ektachrome Archive
“Ektachrome Archive,” a seminal body of work by New York-based artist Lyle Ashton Harris.
Comprising thirty-six documentary photographs and fifteen journals dating from the early 1990s, the installation chronicles the emergence of a new generation of Black cultural producers and scholars in the wake of the Black Arts Movement and the conservative turn of the 1980s, and amid a continuing AIDS epidemic. Among the figures prominent in these documents are late filmmaker Marlon Riggs, curator Thelma Golden, activist scholars bell hooks and Michele Wallace, and artists Glenn Ligon, Gary Simmons, and Carrie Mae Weems.
The archive documents critical events that initiated the emergence of radical thinking and artistic work in Black studies and Black cultural production in the mid-1990s, such as the Black Popular Culture and Black Nations/Queer Nations? conferences. It also presents institutional and academic spaces that hosted significant Black artists, such as the Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, which Harris attended in 1992.
