Martha Friedman: Pore featuring collaborative performances with Silas Riener

Locust Projects is pleased to present Pore, an exhibition of new work by Brooklyn-based artist Martha Friedman. For her first major show in Miami, Friedman has created four vividly colored sheets of rubber – made by pouring around 1000lbs of the material onto Locust Projects’ floor – that have been rigged to cascade from the rafters. Each site-specific sculpture has a costume attached and is colored to reference one of the four humors, the theory of which formed the basis of Western medicine for over two thousand years.

Project Room: Beatriz Monteavaro: Nochebuena

Locust Projects is pleased to present Nochebuena, a new immersive installation by Cuban-born, Miami-based artist Beatriz Monteavaro. The exhibition is centered around memories of family gatherings in the artist’s childhood home, with a focus on the celebrations surrounding Nochebuena (Cuban Christmas Eve). Monteavaro’s work is influenced by the English Punk Rock music scene, science fiction and horror movies, and the fantasy environments of Disney Theme Parks. She has adapted and transformed some of her existing paintings, drawings and sculpture for this installation, which are presented in combination with new sculptural pieces, seasonal decorations, and special lighting.
