O Cinema @ Wynwood | 90 NW 29th St, Miami, FL 33127

Portable Editions Vol. 1: Art Locavore exhibits the process of the work of artistic team Juana Meneses and Leila A. Leder Kremer, known as Remarkable Projects, in collaboration with artist/architect Louisa Van Leer. The exhibition portrays the conception, investigation and prototyping of the nomadic installation that will be on view at ArtCenter/South Florida and different locations throughout Art Basel in Miami Beach. The final installation utilizes the humble work bike, which is used all over the world by small enterprising businesses to move goods on a local/community level. It embodies the DIY / locavore ethos of the project to collaborate with local artists and to work with reusable materials.

ON VIEW  November 30, 2013 – January 19, 2014
CLOSING RECEPTION  January 15, 2014 | 6-10pm

Project 924 | 924 Lincoln Road, Second Floor, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Experiments in Geometry features the work of two ArtCenter resident artists, Xabier Basterra and Laz Ojalde and four alumni Rosemarie Chiarlone, Peter Hammar, Regina Jestrow and Alex Trimino. The work of these six artists explores the notions of space, shape and time.

Viewers are invited to enter the 924 building by walking through Xabier Basterra’s visually engaging installation, experiencing it at close range and, in doing so, blurring the boundaries between object and subject. Basterra’s installation guides visitors to the second floor’s exhibition space, Project 924.

There, Hammar and Trimino comment on life in a subtle and somewhat comical way. The impossible is made possible in a suspended act of time and motion.  Chiarlone also makes the impossible, possible by presenting dancing poems in her video works.

In the main exhibition space, Jestrow and Ojalde present individual works that experiment with geometry, in both space and form. Jestrow translates the movement of color and design, combining ideas from the traditional art of quilting and contemporary art into her own geometric, organic, three-dimensional work. Ojalde combines function and innovation in the everyday object bringing together elements of industrial design and contemporary art.

ArtCenter/South Florida’s Project 924 is dedicated to experimentation and innovation in exhibitions, performances and site-specific installations.

Portable Editions Vol. 1 is a curated, movable installation and exhibition space that showcases limited editions and one-of-a-kind artworks by ArtCenter/South Florida resident artists and alumni. This project creates an exhibition space outside the traditional gallery model and actively engages questions about art and commerce from a conceptual, informal, paired down, and portable space. Architect and artist Louisa Van Leer has designed the mobile installation, an initiative of Remarkable Projects, an artistic collaboration between Juana Meneses and Leila A. Leder Kremer.
