David Castillo Gallery | Sanford Biggers’ Quadri ed Angeli,

Sanford Biggers’ Quadri ed Angeli, the artist’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition is focused on new quilt paintings and sculptural quilts.


A multi-disciplinary artist, Biggers’ antique quilts feature in his practice as a lexicon of layered histories and symbols that examine the history of the United States and its legacy of enslavement and social inequity as well as sacred geometry, sampling and Buddhist Thangkas. The artist approaches these quilts as a collaborator with their original makers, reconfiguring materials to be cut, recombined, painted or collaged into repeating visual references. His quilt works are imbued with a mixture of recognizable imagery of constellation patterns or tree root systems alongside subtle silhouettes, symbols and gestures that could serve as navigation markers or imply (dis)embodied entities.  Afro-futurism inflects these works with motifs of survival and transcendence. To this end, Biggers frames his exploration of these histories through the idea that “Harriet Tubman was an astronaut” for her role in leading enslaved peoples from “the south to the north by navigating the stars.”

Finnish artists Pekka Niittyvirta and Timo Aho have installed lines of light on and around FB Art Dept's South Beach activation space as a visual warning of the long-term effects of climate change on the landscape. San Francisco-based artists Hughen/Starkweather have created research-based abstract artworks that reference past and future climate-related events, and the respective practices of Miami-based artists Thom Wheeler Castillo, Xavier Cortada, and Misael Soto address the global climate crisis through participatory activations, installations, and performances.
