Gary Simmons: Public Enemy

Next date: Apr 12, 2024 - click here for time schedule - English

Gary Simmons: Public Enemy is the first comprehensive career survey of the work of multidisciplinary artist Gary Simmons (b. 1964, New York; lives in Los Angeles). The most in-depth presentation of Simmons’s work to date, the exhibition covers thirty years of the artist’s career, encompassing approximately seventy works.

Show more >>

Since the late 1980s Simmons has played a key role in situating questions of race, class, and gender identity at the center of contemporary art discourse. Notable for his early application of conceptual artistic strategies, Simmons exposes and analyzes histories of racism inscribed in US visual culture. Over the course of his career, Simmons has revealed traces of these histories in the fields of sports, cinema, literature, music, and architecture and urbanism, while drawing heavily on popular genres such as hip-hop, horror, and science fiction. Guided by an internal logic, his approach is cool, analytical, and unflinching in its interrogation of intense historical narratives, yet the results consistently deliver a strong emotional charge.

In this timely exhibition accompanied by a major exhibition catalogue and slate of related programs visitors will gain a holistic understanding of the complex and profoundly moving work of this groundbreaking and influential artist.

Germane Barnes: Ukhamba

Next date: Apr 12, 2024 - click here for time schedule - English

Named after a type of African woven-wood basket, Ukhamba is a ten-foot-tall circular structure with four arched entrances, built of curved wooden elements stacked in horizontal layers. Its construction invites visitors to walk inside and congregate but allows the surrounding plaza and urban landscape to remain visible through the structure. Inspired by Barnes's time working abroad in South Africa, as well as in Miami, Ukhamba not only responds to Miami's sub-tropical climate but also unites architectural elements typical of diasporic communities of African and Caribbean origin. It comprises a pavilion that appears part basket, part traditional breeze wall.

Ukhamba is a space for reflection on our relationship to the built environment, urban design, its histories, and cultural memories. Barnes's pavilion continues the artists' exploration of themes of spatial identity, migration, the cultural influences of the African diaspora, and its contributions to classical architecture. Primarily using materials found in South Florida, the artist has focused on sustainability and has designed a structure in dialogue with the history and natural environment that surrounds it.

Silhouettes: Image and Word in the Harlem Renaissance

Next date: Apr 12, 2024 - click here for time schedule - English

The flourishing of literary, visual, and musical arts between the 1920s and '40s known as the Harlem Renaissance projected a new picture of Black life to the world. Silhouettes: Image and Word in the Harlem Renaissance considers the role of art in this movement, paying special attention to collaboration between artists and writers on illustrated books—works that reached a broad audience with stories and images that challenged demeaning stereotypes and asserted African Americans' capacity for self-determination.

Curated by Christopher Norwood, founder of Hampton Art Lovers, in consultation with Shawn Christian, professor of English at Florida International University, and Wolfsonian staff. Sponsored by Cowles Charitable Trust, Tamara L. Harris Foundation, and Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau Art of Black Miami.

Opening Reception: It's Not That Serious

Saturday, Apr 13, 2024 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

The Contemporary Art Modern Project is delighted to present our Spring exhibition, It’s Not That Serious, a multimedia group exhibition featuring neon artist James Akers, textile artist Kathryn Knudsen, and painter Jason Hackenwerth.

The exhibition will be open to the public in our Miami gallery beginning April 13 and will run through May 31. The gallery will be hosting an opening reception on Saturday, April 13, 2024 from 12–5 PM.

Show more >>

This exhibition includes works from artists James Akers, Kathryn Knudsen, and Jason Hackenwerth, where they take the notion of “it’s not that serious” to task with wit and playful aesthetics. The works in this exhibition are bright, colorful, and labor-intensive; equally approachable and raw.

Delve into the points of contrast between each artist - beneath the surface of each layer in Hackenwerth’s massive canvases, the curves of Aker’s light work, and Knudsen’s delicate fiber pieces - and experience the resounding collective call to both awareness and action. Alignment, like the heart of a big conversation, isn’t always obvious and this is especially true when one chooses to solely consider anything from social issues to fine art at face-value.

Curated by Maria Gabriela Di Giammarco and Gabe Torres.

It's Not That Serious is available for viewing in our North Miami gallery at 791-793 NE 125th St. from April 13 - May 31 2024.

The CAMP Gallery is open Tuesday–Saturday, 12 to 5 PM

For more information, please reach out to email.
