Jeffrey Deitch Gallery Presents Kenny Scharf: Moodz

Next date: Dec 5, 2020 - click here for time schedule - English

Visitors to Jeffrey Deitch's Miami Design District gallery will confront an astonishing sight: one hundred-one of Kenny Scharf's circular paintings of faces. Scharf worked on the project for months, painting several faces a day with intense focus. As Scharf explains it, the characters depicted in his multiple canvases, reflect various aspects of his own personality sometimes reflecting anger and other times reflecting his vibrancy and love of painting. The serial imagery and the iconic quality of Scharf's faces evokes the work of Andy Warhol. The conceptual structure also reflects the heritage of Sol LeWitt.

Scharf likens the multiple colored images on the wall to his early memory seeing the pixels of color on his parents' first color television. His work fuses the vocabulary of Pop Art and Minimalism with the 1960s California TV culture that he experienced as a boy in the San Fernando Valley and as a high school student in Beverly Hills. He characterizes his approach to art as psychedelic conceptualism. Jeffrey Deitch has been presenting public art and gallery projects with Kenny Scharf for many years including the famous mural at the entrance to Wynwood Walls in Miami. Earlier versions of the face painting exhibition were presented by Lio Malca in Ibiza in the summer of 2019 and at Jeffrey Deitch's Los Angeles gallery in the fall of 2020.

MOAD Presents The Body Electric

Next date: Dec 5, 2020 - click here for time schedule - English

The Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) at Miami Dade College (MDC) presents The Body Electric, a major exhibition that looks at our fraught relationship to technology, particularly the increasingly inescapable interface between our bodies and screens. The remarkably varied art in the exhibition examines the last 50 years of artists addressing the way technological mediation has come to dominate our interactions with the world, with each other, and with ourselves.

In an age dominated by digital technology, The Body Electric explores themes of the real and the virtual, the organic and the artificial, moving from the world into the screen and back again. The exhibition presents an intergenerational and international group of 55artists and collectives that have seized upon the screen as a place to rethink the body and identity, with a particular emphasis on questions of gender, sexuality, class, and race. It contextualizes contemporary artists who today engage with digital technology and the influence of the Internet within a broader art historical narrative to reveal shared interests that emerge across generations, despite differing technological means.
