Melissa's Pick
ArtList_2

Rising from the stewy hotbed of Miami's ever-endangered swamps, gentrified neighborhoods, and fetishized (and often sordid) past comes a voice and aesthetic unique to South Florida. Mere Façade, curated by gallerist Anthony Spinello, brings together the work of 20 emerging and established Miami-based artists and cultural producers whose multimedia work blurs the boundaries between art and life. Coping with the trauma of rapid development and environmental politics, themes of absence, uncertainty, loss, and nostalgia emerge through a fresh palette of tropical hues and modernist forms.This exhibition includes new, old, and revisited works by some excellent Miami artists: Kevin Arrow, Eddie Arroyo, Zack Balber, Franky Cruz, Cara Despain, Nicole Doran, Mauricio Gonzalez, Sinisa Kukec, Angel Garcia, Justin H. Long, Michael Loveland, Nice’n Easy, Jessy Nite, Oliver Sanchez, Tom Scicluna, Serge Toussaint, Agustina Woodgate, Antonia Wright, and Bunny Yeager. As we coast through the wet doldrums of summer toward yet another unavoidable international art supernova, Mere Façade is a breezy reminder that Miami’s own are the ones truly elevating this city.
