Wynwood Art District, Miami

Seven contemporary art galleries join forces to present one-artist installations and collaborative project spaces, designed to provide an exhibition experience defined by the needs of each artist's work. A special event in the Wynwood District during the art fair week in Miami.

comunicato stampa

Since 2006, Pierogi Gallery, Hales Gallery and Ronald Feldman Fine Arts have presented a special exhibition in the Wynwood District during the art fair week in Miami. Defined by large installations and collaborative curatorial projects, the exhibition has consistently stood out among the multiple fairs taking place at the same time and been hailed for its “room to stretch out, taste and class to spare, and good stuff.”1

This year BravinLee programs, Postmasters, P•P•O•W, and Winkleman galleries will join the original three in a new 24,000-square-foot space in the Wynwood Art District. Called simply SEVEN, this expanded project looks beyond the art fair model to create an alternative platform for presenting and experiencing contemporary art.

Asked why they were expanding the effort this year, Pierogi Gallery’s Joe Amrhein replied, “Why not? We are not challenging the ubiquitous tradition of the 'Art Fair' but think we can improve upon it, especially in Miami with its unique possibilities. If you feel that most people who visit the fairs really want something that allows for a different, more comprehensive interaction, it shouldn’t surprise you that artists and their dealers feel the same way."

P•P•O•W’s Wendy Olsoff added, “"The chance to have our artists’ work in a dialogue with the other artists exhibited without the constraints of a three-sided booth is an interesting experiment, as well as a truly exciting concept.”

With a number of one-artist installations and collaborative project spaces, SEVEN has been conceived to provide an exhibition experience defined by the needs of each artist’s work. In addition, SEVEN’s second floor space will be an open zone for teach-ins, sponsored panel discussions, screenings, and gatherings both intimate and large.

Jennifer Dalton and Willam Powhida are back at it again! Exploring the pecking orders and heirachies of the art world--experienced nowhere as keenly as during the first week of December each year in Miami. This time, Jennifer and William have organized three days of discussions, performances and guaranteed mayhem under the umbrella event titled #rank.

Legendary experimental filmmaker Leslie Thornton debuts a gorgeous series of single-channel videos. Each work pushes past the more rarified "sublime" in nature with a desire to bring to surface what has been suppressed and outcast. The contraries of beauty and ugliness, like good and evil, come together in a renewed meeting and clash of opposites.

The Chadwick's Genretron
The jewel of Chadwick Manor, The Genretron is a panoramic model built by The Chadwicks in the 19th century for the close study of Dutch landscape painting. Viewing from the central oculus, the Chadwicks used the surrounding diorama to immerse themselves in the physical atmosphere of their favorite landscapists—Hobbema, Ruisdael, Van Goyen, Van der Neer, Van Ostade, and many of the lesser shipwreck artists. This kind of immersion was crucial for their eccentric and little-known treatises on landscape aesthetics and genre painting.

As eminent connoisseurs, sea captains, naval engineers and amateur historians, the Chadwicks amassed one of the great collections of nautical figurines, genre paintings and difficult-to-attribute manuscripts in Western culture. The Chadwicks wrote of seventeenth-century Dutch art as the definitive moment in which landscape painting “vomited up the tyrant Christian landlords” who had until then “monopolized space with their tired stories.”

The reconstruction of the Genretron has been painstakingly overseen by the conservator Jimbo Blachly and the literary historian Lytle Shaw, who are also the editors of the Chadwick Family Archive.

New work and a mind-boggling new installation by Shane Hope
"Fresh off the printer" may never quite mean the same thing after you experience the concepts behind Shane Hope's newest installation. In addition to a selection of gorgeous new prints, several in 3D lenticular formats, Shane will be demonstrating his studio's newest tool: a printer that takes images Shane creates on a computer and prints them out in 3D form. Fair enough. But the printer on display is a "child," comprised largely of pieces printed out from its own parent 3D printer, and printing yet another generation of itself, as well as a series of "Grey Goop" wall pieces you just have to see.

New video by Janet Biggs
We're delighted to present a brand new video "Duet" by Janet Biggs, commissioned by the Mint Museum of Art for her current exhibition there titled "VantagePoint IX Janet Biggs: Going to Extremes." In "Duet" Janet focused on NASCAR racing. But as is common with her highly poetic work, rather than focusing exclusively on the drivers, she also shows us the "speed, precision, and agility of the pit crews and reveals their extreme grace under pressure." For more about the exhibition visit the Mint Museum's website here.

New work by Ivin Ballen, Yevgeniy Fiks, Ulrich Gebert, Christopher K. Ho, Mamiko Otsubo, and Andy Yoder.
