"MIGRATING INWARD" OPENING RECEPTION WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5 | 7PM-12AM

Migrating Inwards unites the work of two ArtCenter alumni, Wendy Wischer and Antonia Wright, and two resident artists, Luis Garcia-Nerey and David Zalben. Wischer invokes the viewer to reflect on the sensation of flight as if looking out from above while simultaneously observing inwards. Zalben evokes innocence and freedom with his flock of birds leading the eye into the space. Garcia-Nerey invites viewers to construct themselves within his work while Wright explores different realities existing at the same time. Luis Garcia-Nerey, Wendy Wischer, Antonia Wright and David Zalben OPENING RECEPTION Wednesday, December 5 | 7pm-12am ON VIEW December 5–26, 2012 Project 924 | 924 Lincoln Road, Second Floor, Miami Beach, FL 33139

In 2010, a rousing 15,000 art enthusiasts lined up and streamed through the fair- after a decade long absence. There was a bursting energy in the air and contagious enthusiasm as attendees were stunned by the museum quality art displayed by the 83 exhibiting galleries. In fact, the spectacular opening night generated 3,000 eager visitors, many of whom were the who's who of the northern California art buying community.

COME CHECK US OUT @ THE AFFORDABLE ART FAIR - MYER GALLERY

 

Twelve years ago, Will Ramsay changed the model of the traditional art fair by creating the Affordable Art Fair, where contemporary art is accessible to all. Now in ten locations around the world, with the upcoming L.A. fair being the eleventh, Affordable Art Fair proves that you do not need to be an art expert or a billionaire to have original works of art by living artists in your home or office. With the fair taking place in Amsterdam (spring and fall), Bristol, Brussels, London (spring and fall), Los Angeles, Melbourne, Milan, New York (spring and fall), North London, Singapore, and Sydney, over $270 million worth of art has been sold at the fairs. The success of the brand continues with the estimated millionth visitor to the Affordable Art Fair expected in 2011.

This is the museum’s second Florida Contemporary exhibition. Last year, 46 artists and nearly 70 works from all over the state were chosen by the museum’s curator to be included in this intriguing show. From realism to abstraction (and everything in between), the 2010 version of this exhibition will include recognized photographers, painters and sculptors who have spent a lifetime at their craft together with an exciting array of new artists that visitors can “discover” for themselves. While not a definitive record of currently exhibiting Florida artists, Florida Contemporary will serve as an overview of the innovative images, subject matter, techniques and mediums that characterize the work being created in the state today. FLORIDA CONTEMPORARY 2010 — MAY 15-JUNE 26, 2010 This exhibition is organized by the Naples Museum of Art.

LUIS GARCIA-NEREY @ THE GHETTO BIENNALE PORT-AU-PRINCE HAITI

 

My basic attempt was to construct a shelter-like structure mainly consisting of found objects. The materials were to be gathered in Haiti throughout my stay and were to serve as the structural part of my installation. My work, in general, is loosely based on the theory of Constructionism with an emphasis on Social Construction. The importance of this philosophy lies not in the prior but in the process.For more information please have a look on www.ghettobiennale.com for details of proposal.

BOSQUE III - GILMAN CONTEMPORARY - SUN VALLEY, IDAHO

 

In their third installment of BOSQUE, artists Luis Garcia-Nerey and Anke Schofield, explore questions on the human construct of the forest and its inhabitants. The exhibition travels to The Gilman Contemporary Gallery in Sun Valley, Idaho, were the artists will present a series of collaborative paintings and installations on November 25th, 2010. In past exhibitions the artists’ focal point have not only been a philosophical one but also one that emphasizes on an aesthetic balance that resonates in their current exhibit. The heart of the series embarks on a journey in which the viewer is presented with a narrative but not a conclusion.  In Bosque III, the artists’ perspective on the subject matter allows the audience to preview a familiar environment while challenging them to examine the existence of human and animal Beings. Although the main premise of the exhibit questions the human construct of the forest, it also aims to reveal an infinite source of reference points beset by the tone of the exhibit itself. Whether literal or abstract, Schofield’s and Nerey’s intentions are not to rationalize a specific idea of the forest but rather suggest that the viewer interpret the works on their own without limitations set by concrete definitions.
