A Fountain for a Dark Future

Lewis Colburn: A Fountain for a Dark Future

Blending digital and manual making processes, robotic elements, and a series of water pumps, the massive, improvised fountain at the center of Lewis Colburn’s A Fountain for a Dark Future alludes to disruptive events on the human horizon such as sea level rise, automation, and the rise of authoritarianism.

Reverse Alchemy on the Gold Coast

Jessica Segall: Reverse Alchemy on the Gold Coast

A new immersive installation that underscores the reality that life-sustaining natural resources will become scarce across the globe, as humans both drive, and are impacted by, climate change, droughts, population growth, development and pollution. Here in South Florida, home to one of the most productive purifying aquifer systems in the world, the work weighs the value of gold and extractive capitalism against clean water and fertile soil.

Loni Johnson: Remnants

During her residency at Locust Projects, Johnson will transform the Mobile Studio into a physical space to inform, heal, and offer counter-narratives that commemorate Black women and girls and celebrates their role in the community; a place where they can feel seen, apart from the world that continues to silence them and deem them invisible. In the words of poet Nayyirah Waheed, “All the women in me are tired”. An offering to Black women, Remnants responds to this collective experience by providing a place for all of these women in us to rest, normalize vulnerability, and dismantle the myth of the Black Superwoman while also reconnecting with and honoring our mothers, our mothers’ mothers and their mamas too.

Common Field 2021 Convening | Mother Artist: 3 Perspectives on Caring for Ourselves & Each Other

Common Field 2021 Convening | Mother Artist: 3 Perspectives on Caring for Ourselves & Each Other

Virtual Panel with Loni Johnson, Coralina Rodriguez Meyer, and Arsimmer McCoy



This summer, Locust Projects launched a series called Care, offering space and resources to artists who work at the intersection of self-, interpersonal, and community care. Some of these artists are mothers, with parenting experiences that inform their creative practices. Arsimmer McCoy is a collaborative storyteller with deep roots in her Miami Gardens (formerly Carol City) community. Loni Johnson creates healing spaces for Black women, investigating how she claims space and how our ancestral memory informs the ways we move through space. And Coralina Rodriguez Meyer translates structural violence into heirlooms to restore civic agency.

In Mother Artist, these women will discuss their art practices, their commitments to caregiving, and how integrating care into cultural work can lead us all towards a more nourishing, tender, and sustainable future. The artists will engage session participants through passionate and compassionate discussion, experience-based skill sharing, and artist-created participatory activities.

This session is open to all. Artist parents are welcomed and encouraged to attend with their children.

Field Companion

Matthew Suib, Nadia Hironaka: Field Companion

Philadelphia-based artists Nadia Hironaka and Matthew Suib, known for their fantastical moving images and alternate realities, have created a new immersive film installation for Locust Projects. Field Companion, set in a microcosmic forest, is based loosely on the pine barrens that dot Southern New Jersey near their home. The exhibition opens to the public with a reception on Saturday, November 20, 2021 and is on view through February 5, 2022 Wednesdays-Saturdays from 11am-5pm. Admission is free.

Like many, the duo found refuge and solace throughout the COVID-19 pandemic hiking and foraging in these remote, natural landscapes. As America's social fabric frayed deeply over recent years, they considered forest ecosystems in terms of symbiotic and collaborative relationships that sustain coexistence and community.

The Depths

Group Exhibition: The Depths

Locust Projects presents The Depths, the fourth in a series of guest curated video exhibitions in Locust Projects’ Screening Room that launched in fall 2019. Guest curated by filmmaker and video artist, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, the exhibition features works by Isabelle Carbonell, Miguel Hilari, Los Ingrávidos, Sofía Gallisá Muriente and Sindhu Thirumalaisamy.  

"Toxic Lake, Salt On Film, Moon Goddess Through Violence, through desert cactus, a mine and the photographs of those who labored them. This series unfolds through relations of material and sensorial experience, they arise from an inseparability of what we think of as "place" from historical events or the deep time of geology from a multi-perspectival experimental film language." - Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, guest curator

A landscape longed for: the garden as disturbance

Group Exhibition: A landscape longed for: the garden as disturbance

Guest curated by Adler Guerrier and Laura Novoa featuring Andrea Bowers, Sandi Haber Fifield, David Hartt, Jim Hodges, Ebony G. Patterson, and Onajide Shabaka and newly commissioned works by Ema Ri and Cristina Lei Rodriguez.

A landscape longed for: the garden as disturbance explores the motif of the garden as used by artists in its relation to the cultivation and expression of beauty and knowledge. The works in the exhibition function around images and objects connected to and derived from the study of plants, prompting a reimagining and reinterpretation of the garden as a site for the lyrical arrangement of forms.

And so with ends comes beginnings

Antonia Wright: And so with ends comes beginnings


Lummus Park
1130 Ocean Dr
Miami Beach, FL 33139

Locust Projects presents And so with ends comes beginnings, a video by Miami-based artist Antonia Wright that will be presented at UNTITLED ART FAIR viewable on a floating video screen on November 29, from 4-6pm at Lummus Park Beach.

Shot when the Miami-based artist was 9 months pregnant, the video of a disappearing pregnant belly in a silver sea, reflects the dualities of ecstasy and anxiety of living in a paradise with ground-zero sea-level rise. A visual metaphor for simultaneous creation and destruction — And so with ends comes beginnings is an emblem of fecundity in times of erasure of the natural order and man’s impact on Mother Earth. This project was supported in part through Locust Projects WaveMaker grants. 

Welcome to Miami's incubator of new art and ideas.



Current shows on view through February 5, Wed-Sat | 11am-5pm
