Showing: Javier Calleja – “Sooner Or Later” @ Bill Brady Gallery

For his debut solo show in the US, Javier Calleja has prepared a series of paintings (some of the biggest canvases he produced to date) as well as a large totemic sculpture featuring a stack of his cartoonish heads. Sooner Or Later is an exhibition from the Spanish artist that was planned for earlier in the year at Bill Brady Gallery in Maimi, but had been postponed until now because of the global pandemic. The scale of the work perhaps is a way to celebrate the win of […]

Recap: Void Project – “Homeless” Art Residency

Back in November, Void Projects organized their second Homeless art residency and group exhibition at artist Axel Void’s home in Miami. Roughly 15 artists from around the world were invited to stay in the house over a period of two weeks to eat, sleep, and create together. The idea of this year’s residency was to explore the concept of “home” from a political, social or personal viewpoint, based on cultural heritage, identity or patriotism. The results of that experimentation transformed this residential home into a very special kind of exhibition. […]

Basel Week Miami ’19 / Recap: Leandro Erlich – “Order Of Importance”

During Art Basel Week Miami, Leandro Erlich continued his impressive run of mind bending sculptural installations with a new one entitled Order Of Importance. Commissioned by the city of Miami Beach, the site specific intervention right next the ocean from the Argentinian artist featured a traffic jam of 66 life-sized sculptures of cars and trucks, a reflection of the current climate crisis. The massive project (Erlich’s largest to date) covers roughly two-thirds the length of a football field, with the partially buried vehicles reminding viewers of the sobering reality of Miami as […]

Interviews: Camille Rose Garcia

Camille Rose Garcia has been recognized as one of the most important figures in the Pop Surrealism and Lowbrow art movements in the last two decades. Simultaneously, she has been somewhat a promotor of Mexican culture-inspired art with her vibrant and energetic works, filled with spiritual and psychedelic imagery.
