Meet the artist and join Locust Projects in celebrating the opening of Kitchen with a View! Refreshments provided by our friends at Concrete Beach Brewery.
Locust Projects is proud to present Kitchen with a View, a site-specific video installation by Argentinian-born, Mexico City-based artist Carolina Fusilier. This newly commissioned installation for the Project Room is Fusilier’s first solo exhibition in Miami. Filmed during a month-long residency at Locust Projects, the video reflects on the dystopic possibility of a Miami where the human presence has disappeared overtaken by the proliferation of luxury real estate development. Supported in part by The Jumex Foundation.
Meet the artist and join Locust Projects in celebrating the opening of The Language Must Not Sweat! Refreshments provided by our friends at Concrete Beach Brewery.
Locust Projects is proud to present The Language Must Not Sweat, by artist and filmmaker Shikeith. The Language Must Not Sweat, a five-channel video installation titled after an expression Toni Morrison used in a 1981 interview, mines what puddles at the core of the public and subconscious lives of black men. This immersive-installation ponders the symbolic moisture of blackness at the intersections of queerness and masculinity.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Shikeith (b. 1989, Philadelphia, PA) received his BA from The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA for Integrative Art (2010) and his MFA in Sculpture from The Yale School of Art, New Haven, CT (2018). His work attempts an assemblage of personal truths and wonder that focuses on the metamorphoses of Black men, especially within a society that denies these men their erotic and reconciliatory potential and capital. It is the interior he considers—his own, as well as, other Black men or masculine people through emphasizing portraiture, sculpture, and filmmaking to examine the fantastic as it relates and complicates personal autobiography and self-making.
