Locust Projects, celebrating its 25th anniversary year in 2023, is featuring two new exhibitions during Miami Art Week including a major installation by Mexican artist Tania Candiani and newly commissioned work by Miami-based artist Cornelius Tulloch marking the first Miami Art Week in the organization’s new home in Little River. Located in an expansive industrial warehouse, with 17-foot high ceilings, an open floor plan, and access to a large enclosed courtyard, the new space is an expanded laboratory for local, national, and international artists to experiment with new media and materials.
The inaugural shows will feature special performances during the Meet the Artists Reception kicking off Miami Art Week on Tuesday, December 5 from 6-9pm at 297 NE 67th Street in Little River. All are welcome. Free on-street parking available.
Locust Projects presents an audiovisual performance and installation by Nicki Duval and Robbie Trocchia at UNTITLED Art Fair that deconstructs competitive boxing and the work of American realist painter George Bellows, breaking down the boundaries between arts and athletics, and challenging gender stereotypes through boxing and queerness. bout was originally performed in July as part of Locust Projects’ LAB MFA residency program, which encourages experimentation that creates a jumping off point for staging performances, convenings, artist activations, or happenings working with the available spaces in our new home. The candidates were selected from more than 50 applicants by UNTITLED Art Fair Artistic Director Omar Lopez Chahoud, past exhibiting artist from the 181 collective, Abby Donovan, and Locust Projects 2022 LAB MFA artists Tara Kesavan and Indranil Choudhury.
Presented by Locust Projects in conjunction with UNTITLED.
