Autopia explores the ubiquitous presence of the automobile in contemporary culture. “Autopia” combines the words auto and Utopia to highlight the importance that the car industry played as one of the paramount symbols of progress in the 20th Century. What is its place in contemporary culture? Does car culture remain central to our ideal of progress? In this exhibition, the legacy of automobiles is being reviewed and reassessed through the work of artists from three continents.

The exhibition is divided in four thematic groups, dealing with the central role of cars in the American High/Way of Life, the USA-USSR fight for consumers’ hearts and minds during the Cold War, the impact of automobiles in the natural realm, and the ways in which it has affected human lives, rewriting maps through commerce and migration, and changing urban centers like Miami.

Participating artists include:
Jairo Alfonso, Adrián Balseca, Yael Bartana, César Beltrán, Timothy Buwalda, Carlos Luis DeMedeiros, Rigoberto Díaz Martínez, Daniel Evans, Luis Gispert, Pablo Helguera, Alex Heria, Marisa Jahn, Ernesto Kunde, Volodymyr Kuznetsov, Carlos Marcial, Frank E.

Carlos Alfonzo: Clay Works and Painted Ceramics at PAMM, Miami

Nov. 5, 2015 – April 24, 2016

Pérez Art Museum Miami 
1103 Biscayne Blvd.,  
Miami, FL 33132 
 

Carlos Alfonzo’s prolific works in clay and painted ceramics are inextricably connected to the formal evolution of his large paintings and sculptures. In a productive decade, he painted myriad molded ceramic wares with great verve and skill. At the same time, in immense physical efforts, he personally made and glazed all the tiles for his two iconic public murals in South Florida: Ceremony of the Tropics (at the Santa Clara Metrorail station) and Brainstorm (at the FIU campus). The exhibition presents his works with clay and ceramics in the context of contemporaneous paintings, drawings and other small-scale works.

JUAN-SI GONZALEZ, ALTERATIONS: MENTAL MODEL SERIES, 2009/2015, at Art@Work Gallery, Miami

Opening reception: Saturday, Nov. 28  7pm- 10pm

Art@Work Gallery
1245 SW 87 Ave.
Miami, FL 33174
 

The photographs in this series register sudden glitches or gaps in transmission in the unrelenting traffic of media images. They are of television advertisements during those intervals in which the signal is interrupted and the emitted image breaks up, fragmenting until nearly disintegrating. What remains is a trail of digital data, a wake of drifting fragments and vestiges of images that retain some trace of that which has already precipitously disappeared. In these photographs, I try to capture and document the digital trail left behind by an image in movement, its ephemeral trajectory from the recognizable to the abstract. From the visual detritus emerge new signifiers that evoke other subjectivities, other discourses, and other more static and contemplative temporalities. On being severed and extracted from their referents, the images are deactivated and emptied of their content and original purpose. In their estrangement, they engender new forms, a new visual syntax created with the intention of disrupting the intended order of representation and mechanisms of persuasion.

GORY: Notes for a Retrospective, at Aluna Art Foundation, Miami

From November 21, 2015 to January 16, 2016

Opening Reception: November 21, 7:00pm

Curated by Aluna Curatorial Collective (Adriana Herrera y Willy Castellanos)

Aluna Art Foundation
1393 S.W. 1st. Street
Miami Fl. 33135

The notion that Art History is a theoretical and iconographic narrative where its construction – and deconstruction – can and should pass, given by the tension amongst the diverse modes of hegemony that captures its account, was vital for the conception of the exhibition by “Rogelio López Marín, “Gory”: Notes for a Retrospective”. As such, Aluna Curatorial Collective (Adriana Herrera y Willy Castellanos) makes a merited lengthy homage, to one of the pioneers of contemporary art in Cuba, owner of a vision that is as much personal as irreducible, and whose decisive contribution to art and photography – in the island and in the continent -, deserves to be re-dimensioned.

“Metallic”, a solo exhibition of works by Jorge Enrique at Waltman Ortega Fine Art, Miami

November 14 – December 16, 2015

Opening: November 14, 3-7 p.m

 

Waltman Ortega Fine Art
 2233 N.W. 2nd Avenue,
Miami, FL 33127 

In the most recent works by Jorge Enrique, the idea of beauty is at the center of the artist’s practice. While Enrique’s artwork of the last two decades communicated the irony that minimalist and abstract works could actually represent the deconstruction of an unforgiving cacophonous urban environment, and the gritty “truth” of graffitied texts and images could not be trusted, beauty in Enrique’s work has always been present.

Drawn to the intellectual spareness of abstraction and conceptualism, Enrique nevertheless uses a wide range of media – drawing, painting, silkscreen, monoprints, layered lifted images, sculpture and installation. And Enrique’s practice is very much concerned with materials shaping wood, sheet metal, paper, paint, epoxy, and resin into complex objects that undermine the ordinariness of their materials. These works are deliberate palimpsests – artworks whose history can be seen through the eroded exposure of under layers, visible by erasing, abrading, scraping and layering. The complex physicality of Enrique’s surfaces recalls ideas of age, decay, re-use, hidden images, and layers of meaning.
