Locust Projects  | Trenton Doyle Hancock: I Made a Mound City in Miami Dade County

The heroic adventures of Torpedo Boy and his battles in the Moundverse continue at Locust Projects this fall with a new site-specific installation by Houston-based artist Trenton Doyle Hancock. This is Hancock’s first large scale solo exhibition since opening his major survey, Mind of the Mound: Critical Mass, at MASS MoCA in March 2019. The exhibition will open with a public opening on Sunday, November 17 from 1-3pm.

Hancock tells the story of the Mounds (gentle hybrid plant-like creatures) protected by Torpedo Boy, and their enemies, the Vegans (mutants who consume tofu and spill Mound blood every chance they get). These narratives--told through paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, video and installation--explore good and evil, authority, race, class, moral relativism, politics and religion, as well as making unapologetic nods to comic books, illustrations, animations, horror films, and toys.

Primary Projects  |  Self-preservation (with or without applause)

group exhibition organized by A.G. featuring works by Theodora Allen, Christopher Culver, A.G., Victoria Fu, Beatriz Olabarrieta, Tony Matelli, John Riepenhoff, Torbjørn Rødland, Amanda Ross-Ho, Ed Ruscha, and Sara VanDerBeek. The works in the exhibition, spanning painting, photography, sculpture, video, and neon, function much like self-aware vessels encapsulating portraits of the anxieties related to acknowledgment, self-care, validation, time, defense and, collectively, self-preservation.

As part of the exhibition, A.G. writes:

I heard a rumor when I was young that Walt Disney had his head cryogenically frozen. At the time I thought it was odd and egotistical, and quite presumptuous. As an adult, it makes sense. The "magic" that Walt fabricated, and is still being fabricated by the Disney conglomerate today, was, indeed, fabricated. What that implies is that the magic one feels was willed by another's desire to will it. There is a grand shadow that looms, mischievously tormenting, much like Peter Pan's own shadow, transcendent of its ability to be categorized as either benevolent or malevolent. Much like Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, and Walt himself, mortality, time, and maintenance are ever paramount, no matter how much pixie dust we use in our skincare regimen.

Opens: Monday December 2, 2019 at 5 PM

Nina Johnson  |  Nevine Mahmoud: Bella donna

Bella donna, an exhibition of new sculptural works by Nevine Mahmoud, opening on November 9th with a public reception (7-9pm), and remaining on view until January 4th. Taking place in the downstairs gallery and courtyard, the intimate exhibition is centered around a major outdoor sculpture: a 300-pound cherry made of hand-polished Portuguese marble. Topped with a 10 foot-tall stem springing into the sky, the gleaming fruit holds court like an impossible detail of a Renaissance still life.

Tile Blush | Deon Rubi 13

13 (thirteen) is the natural number following 12 and preceding 14. Strikingly folkloric aspects of the number 13 have been noted in various cultures around the world: one theory is that this is due to the cultures employing lunar-solar calendars (there are approximately 12.41 lunations per solar year, and hence 12 "true months" plus a smaller and often portentous, thirteenth month)

Robert Fontaine Gallery | Anthony Lister | Woke up on fire

Woke Up on Fire,  an exhibition of 15 large scale paintings explore the artist’s ongoing interest and romance with the Myths and the cultural significance of Super Heroes.  In Lister’s newest body of work,  the artist captures the human connection, and our collective fascination with Heroes and Villains; good and evil, and the power they hold metaphorically.  Comprised of bold gestures, drips, smears, and comic book colors the painted subjects float on stark white backgrounds as if to be idealized like historical figures hanging in the halls of powerful institutions.   The canvases include a type of iconography, relating to each mythologized figure. The words and poetic language compositionally float on the  canvas,  giving the viewer a raw glimpse into the artist’s thinking, and creative process of working and reworking, mapping the painting,  shaping the identity and developing the narrative. These verbal markers are like that of a surgeon’s notations on human skin, or a mad scientist whose thoughts of an idea run unstoppable across a chalk board as a stream of thinking toward an ultimate place of clarity and resolve.

The exhibit will be on view November 28 through December 8.

​The opening reception will be held Wednesday, December 4 from 7p.m. to 10 p.m.

Rubell Family Collection | Art of Past 50 Years

Presenting Unparalleled Journey through Contemporary Art of Past 50 Years 

 

The Rubell Museum announced that its new campus will open on December 4, 2019 with a museum-wide installation of works that chronicle key artists, moments, and movements in vital arts centers over the past 50 years, from the East Village to Beijing, Los Angeles to Leipzig, and São Paulo to Tokyo. The inaugural exhibition encompasses more than 300 works by 100 artists, providing one of the most far-ranging museum exhibitions of contemporary art ever presented. Drawn entirely from their expansive collection of over 7,200 works by more than 1,000 artists, the exhibition features defining and seminal works by artists whom the Rubells championed as they were first emerging (often becoming the first collectors to acquire their work) and those who had been overlooked. The new Rubell Museum is located in the Allapattah neighborhood of Miami, less than a mile from its original home in Wynwood. The new space is closer to downtown and readily accessible via public transportation. 

Opening Wednesday December 4, 2019

Teresita Fernández: Elemental offers visitors an unparalleled opportunity to experience numerous works by one of the nation’s leading contemporary artists. The exhibition tells the story of a creator who, through her practice, reflects and challenges perceptions of the natural world and the U.S. social order, and asks viewers to contemplate their roles with those spaces. The retrospective will introduce visitors to the artist’s large-scale sculptures, installations, and mixed media works that merge formal and conceptual aspects of her practice through the use of natural materials and the historic genre of landscape to reinterpret relationships between nature, history, and identity.

The Bass  |  HAEGUE YANG: IN THE CONE OF UNCERTAINTY

In the Cone of Uncertainty foregrounds Haegue Yang’s (b. 1971, Seoul) consistent curiosity about the world and tireless experimentation with materializing the complexity of identities in flux. Living between Seoul and Berlin, Yang employs industrially produced quotidian items, digital processes, and labor-intensive craft techniques. She mobilizes and enmeshes complex, often personal, histories and realities vis-à-vis sensual and immersive works by interweaving narrative with form. Often evoking performative, sonic and atmospheric perceptions with heat, wind and chiming bells, Yang’s environments appear familiar, yet engender bewildering experiences of time and place.

The exhibition presents a selection of Yang’s oeuvre spanning the last decade – including window blind installations, anthropomorphic sculptures, light sculptures, and mural-like graphic wallpaper – taking its title from an expression of the South Florida vernacular, that describes the predicted path of hurricanes. Alluding to our eagerness and desperation to track the unstable and ever-evolving future, this exhibition addresses current anxieties about climate change, overpopulation and resource scarcity. Framing this discourse within a broader consideration of movement, displacement and migration, the exhibition contextualizes contemporary concerns through a trans-historical and philosophical meditation of the self.

MOCA | CECILIA VICUÑA: ABOUT TO HAPPEN

In celebration of Miami Art Week 2019, the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) will present the first major U.S. solo exhibition of influential Chilean-born artist Cecilia Vicuña. “About to Happen” traces Vicuña’s career-long commitment to exploring discarded and displaced materials, peoples, and landscapes in a time of global climate change,

“Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen” is comprised of Vicuña’s multidisciplinary work in performance, sculpture, drawing, video, text, and site-specific installations created over 40 years. Reframing dematerialization as both a formal consequence of 1960s conceptualism and radical climate change, the exhibition examines a process that shapes public memory and responsibility. Operating fluidly between concept and craft, text and textile, Vicuña’s practice merges dissimilar disciplines and communities with shared relationships to land and sea, and to the economic and environmental disparities of the 21st century.

November 26, 2019 – March 29, 2020

Public Reception with the artist: Thursday, December 5, 8-11pm

Saturday, December 7: Cecilia Vicuña performance, followed by a conversation with the artist and co-curators Andrea Andersson The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts at the CAC, and Julia Bryan-Wilson, Professor, University of California, Berkeley
