One Out of One Thousand is the result of Cristina Anglada’s visiting curator residency at ArtCenter in partnership with Acción Cultural Española. The title refers to the thousand potential exhibitions after her curatorial research process during her residency. This One is the final possibility. The exhibition is built around works by Miami-based resident and alumni artists of ArtCenter/South Florida and Fountainhead Studios.

The works in the exhibition share a modus operandi characterized by the process of construction and assembly derived from the compilation of objects, fragments and discarded materials. The artist acts as a cross between the flâneaur and the archaeologist and develops artistic creations that function like experimentations of the new reality to which they fit into and respond to. The found fragments are incorporated with their own time and memory—beginning with a new history and a new existence, projecting towards another future to explore.

In His Own Likeness primarily reaffirms existence, which in its diversity and complexity, is equally divine. Although, it does present us, in a somewhat provocative manner, an assortment of images of eroticized men alluding, rather than to God, to His gender—the masculinity attributed to Him—and as a result, to the power associated with the male gender. Thus, the exhibition addresses the way in which masculinity unfolds, expresses itself, and even loses all meaning: sex.

A Su imagen y semejanza es en primer lugar una reafirmación de la existencia, que en toda su diversidad y complejidad es divina. Aunque tendenciosamente nos lleva hacia un espectro de imágenes de hombres erotizados que, más que a Dios, aluden a Su género—a la masculinidad desde la cual ha sido entendido—y  por consecuencia, al poder asociado con el género masculino. Esta exposición transita por la manera más cotidiana en que la masculinidad se desarrolla, se expresa y hasta pierde su sentido: el sexo.

Windows @ Walgreens | 100 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Hisae Ikenaga works with everyday objects that she alters to present different meanings and uses to said objects. In Invisible Solid: Miami, Ikenaga presents four installations developed during her Visiting Artist residency at ArtCenter/South Florida in partnership with Acción Cultural Española. These installations are an amalgamation of her more formal sculptures where she recontextualizes domestic objects as non-functional works of art and her site-specific installation work with found objects. Irony and absurdity are key elements of Ikenaga’s works.

In MacArthur Causeway, Ikenaga assembled found objects that washed up from Biscayne Bay under the MacArthur Causeway. In Sun Bathing and The Last Glass of Wine, she speaks to the opulence and tourism found in South Beach as well as kitsch often present in both by staging absurd scenes. In With a Noose Around Your Neck, Ikenaga presents a combination of large sourced and found objects that present a juxtaposition of the rough and the delicate. Set in ArtCenter’s Windows @ Walgreens, an exhibition venue attached to a well-recognized store, the installation questions both consumerism and what the viewer perceives as art.

Hisae Ikenaga
Mexico, 1977 | Lives and works in Madrid, Spain

Half-Mexican and half-Japanese, Hisae Ikenaga, presents processed industrial made objects to create contradictions in their functions. She has a constant will of transformation to point out the processes in the materials. In some of her works, she proposes the use of  “global objects,” objects purchased in international chain stores, to manipulate, arrange their parts in different ways and create new opinions about everyday life circumstances. The instruction manuals of these objects are also used to open new windows to see transformations on paper. Ikenaga studied Fine Arts in Mexico City and completed postgraduate studies in Kyoto, Barcelona and Madrid. She has exhibited works in Cuba, Germany, Japan, México, Spain, UK, France and US, among others.
