AUTOPIA: Road Trips from the Cold War to the Present, at Bakehouse Art Complex, Miami

Opening Reception: Monday, Nov. 28, 2016    7-10 pm

Curated by Elvis Fuentes and Gabriela M. Fernandez

Audrey Love Gallery
Bakehouse Art Complex
561 NW 32nd Street
Miami Florida 33127

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.

Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight, at the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY

Sept 16, 2016–Jan 2, 2017

Whitney Museum of American Art
99 Gansevoort Street
New York, NY 10014

Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight is the first museum exhibition of this groundbreaking artist in New York City in nearly two decades. Focusing on the years 1948 to 1978, the period during which Herrera developed her signature style, the show features more than fifty works, including paintings, three-dimensional works, and works on paper. It begins with the formative period following World War II, when Herrera lived in Paris and experimented with different modes of abstraction before establishing the visual language that she would explore with great nuance for the succeeding five decades. Many of these works have never been displayed before in a museum.

The exhibition, in the Court Gallery of the University’s Ben Shahn Center for the Visual Arts, features Guiller’s sculptures from the “Free Matter,” “Helical,” and “Spiral” series, which reveal the influence of such artistic movements as Constructivism and Minimalism as well as Newtonian and Euclidian principles.

Anthony Goicolea’s “Shadow Projection,” at Monte Clark Gallery, Vancouver, Canada

August 13, 2016 to September 3, 2016

MONTE  CLARK GALLERY
#105, 525 Great Northern Way
Vancouver, BC
Canada
V5T 1E1

In Anthony Goicolea’s new exhibition “Shadow Projection,” the Cuban-American artist continues his investigation of portraiture, identity, beauty, and the grotesque in a series of mixed media works on double-sided frosted mylar film.

Goicolea’s “Shadow Projection Portraits” are presented as videographic images with black bars above and below, the letterbox format referencing the transference of wide format film to standard width video. Rendered as photo-like film stills in graphite and acrylic, the portraits further conflate the mediums of film, photography, and painting.

Borrowing the most visually compelling and striking characteristics from different portrait subjects, Goicolea repeats traditionally beautiful features in duplicate or triplicate until they morph or dissolve into hauntingly abstracted and deformed renderings of engineered faces. Each portrait is an amalgamation of different facial features cobbled together from semi-androgynous men and women, and the series has strong ties to the artist’s early self-portrait work. Traditional portraiture encourages the viewer to hone in on specific characteristics to identify a specific individual, while these portraits rebuke that instinct—it is almost impossible for the eye to rest on any one specific recognizable feature before it dissolves into the next layer of dislocated eyes, nose or mouth.

Emilio Pérez in group show “Nature Pops!”, at Wave Hill, Bronx, NY

July 12 – September 5, 2016

Exhibition Reception: Sunday, July 17, 2‒4:30 PM

Wave Hill
West 249th Street and Independence Avenue (Front Gate)  
Bronx, NY 10471-2899

A half-century after the emergence of Pop art as a revolutionary response to new norms of consumerism, Nature Pops!, Wave Hill’s summer 2016 exhibition, brings together work by artists who calibrate this movement in contemporary terms. Continuing to re-evaluate popular culture, particularly the increasing mediation of our experience by technology, artists question whether we can still have an authentic experience―even in the natural world. Interpreting nature and the environment through a populist lens, Nature Pops! includes recent work that is especially relevant in an age of digital overload and environmental crisis. Presenting the show at Wave Hill, a stunning garden and cultural center located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, adds particular depth and dimension to the discussion.
