Inevitable Continuum. 10-Year Anniversary Exhibition of Locust Projects. November 8 - December 31, 2008
Celebrating a decade as Miami’s landmark alternative artspace, Locust Projects opens its 10-year anniversary exhibition, “Inevitable Continuum,” on Saturday, November 8, 2008 with an opening reception from 7-11pm.
Exploring beyond the confines of a conventional retrospective, Executive Director Claire Breukel and artist Gene Moreno have curated an exhibition that captures the organization’s forward-looking philosophy and commitment to giving contemporary artists freedom to experiment.
Looking back at 10 years of exhibitions in the Wynwood artspace, Breukel and Moreno have invited one alumnus from each year to choose his favorite, most-promising artist now. The result is a dynamic mix of new work from a diverse lineup of emerging national and international talent.
Participating artists are Chris Buening, selected by Tatiana Garmendia (shown at Locust Projects in 1999); Mariana Palma, selected by Albano Afonso (2000); Ivan Reyes-Garcia, selected by Gregory Green (2001); Seamus Harahan, selected by Phil Collins (2002); Ronald Cornelissen, selected by Beatriz Monteavaro (2003); Paul Cherwick, selected by Jon Pylypchuk (2004); Jaime Gili, selected by Eugenio Espinoza (2005); K8 Hardy, selected by Laura Parnes (2006); Nikos Arvanitis, selected by Magnus Arnason (2007); and Justin Hansch, selected by Graham Hudson (2008).
“Inevitable Continuum” will represent a cross-section of innovative sculpture, drawing, painting, installation, digital media and mural projects - many site-specific - for which Locust Projects is renowned. The exhibition runs from November 8 - December 31, 2008. Locust Projects will also host a reception on December 6th from 7-11pm in conjunction with the Wynwood Art Walk during Art Basel Miami Beach.
