Miami in Transition
April 28 – October 29, 2006
This exhibition features local artists whose work has been informed either directly or indirectly by Miami’s ongoing metamorphosis.
Selected by MAM curators, the new works range from focused responses to construction/demolition to more general “psychogeographic” meditations on art and life amid an environment in flux.
Miami in Transition is the first MAM exhibition dedicated entirely to Miami artists since the highly successful, year long New Work series in 2001.
Artists in the exhibition:
Xavier Cortada's work Absence of Place can also be seen in conjunction with the Miami Herald. Readers of the paper have been invited to share their own memories on a special website dedicated to the project: Absence of Place: Views from Readers.
The exhibition is organized by Miami Art Museum and curated by Assistant Director for Special Projects/Curator Lorie Mertes and Curatorial Research Assistant René Morales. The exhibition is supported by MAM’s Annual Exhibition Fund.
