Opening Reception: Between the legible and the opaque: Approaches to an ideal in place

Please join us for the Opening Reception for Between the legible and the opaque: Approaches to an ideal in place curated by Adler Guerrier

The exhibition proposes works of various media that incorporate abstraction as both a formal and conceptual framework to render perceptions of place. The use of abstraction facilitates readings of the process inherent in their making. This process involves elements that reference diverse notions of place – its color, materiality, use of language, and instantaneity as landscape. The summation of these notions, a conversation between the work as a whole and its constituent parts, contributes to varying degrees of legibility and evocativeness. The participating artists include Irina Dakhnovskaia-Lawton, Juan Matos, Nicole Maynard-Sahar, Tana Oshima, and Alice Quaresma.

Adler Guerrier (born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; lives and works in Miami, FL) is best known for works in photography, drawing, and printmaking that explore the poetics and politics of place. Guerrier received a BFA from New World School of the Arts/University of Florida. His recent exhibitions include Coffee, Rhum, Sugar, & Gold: A Postcolonial Paradox (Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco), curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah and Dexter Wimberly, La Construcción de lo Posible, XIII Havana Biennial (Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Wifredo Lam, Havana), and Lines of Fracture (David Castillo Gallery, Miami). Guerrier is a resident artist at the Bakehouse Art Complex and a board member of Oolite Arts and Locust Projects.

On View: October 11, 2019–March 31, 2020

A curator-led tour of the exhibition will happen during our annual Baker’s Brunch on December 5, 9am–12pm.

Public Opening: Archeology of Memory: The site and sound of ceramics

Archeology of Memory: The site and sound of ceramics, curated by Morel Doucet

Archeology of Memory: The site and sound of ceramics, examines the history and use of materials in their raw form, examined through the lens of material culture and utilitarian tradition. The exhibition explores the transcendental nature of the medium, bringing together artists who work with ceramics, glass, and cement in both traditional and experimental allegory to challenge the notions of perception and the psychology of texture, color, and form. The works function within the cross lexicon of said elements and consider scale, both intimate or grand. Archeology of Memory features works by Xavier Cortada, Sharon Norwood, and Troy Simmons, among others, and invites viewers to walk through the synaptic workings of each artist’s mind to visually witness the manifestations of their inner thoughts and aspirations.

Morel Doucet (born in Pilate, Haiti; lives and works in Miami, FL) is a multidisciplinary artist and arts educator whose work explores the cultural disparity of self-realization, assimilation, and transnational identity. Doucet received a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Ceramics. Doucet’s work has been featured and reviewed in numerous publications including Hyperallergic and The Miami Herald. His most recent exhibitions include More Than That: Diversity within Diversity (Flaten Art Museum, Northfield, MN) curated by Roberto Lugo and Building Bridges II: The Politics of Love, Identity, and Race, XIII Havana Biennial (Galería Carmen Montilla, Havana), curated by Myrtis Bedolla. Doucet is a resident artist at the Bakehouse Art Complex and the Curriculum and Tour Coordinator at the Institute of Contemporary - Miami.

On View: November 9, 2019–March 31, 2020

The Portfolio Review Series / 3rd Edition: The Bakehouse Art Complex

The Coral Gables Museum’s Portfolio Review Series is a platform to meet local artists and discuss their ideas and projects. For each edition, 8 to 10 artists are invited to the Museum to share their portfolios, sketchbooks, catalogues, ephemera and other materials in the context of a pop-up exhibition of their work at the Museum’s Community Meeting Room. They will engage in conversations about their working processes and references, past and future projects, dreams, and other topics that go beyond what is typically seen in the gallery. This is an excellent opportunity to network and encourage other collaborations between presenters and attendees!
