National YoungArts Foundation Studio 2144 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, Florida, USA
ICEBERG'S TONGUE is a group exhibition hosted by James Weingrod, the current National YoungArts Foundation artist-in-residence in Visual Arts, at the YoungArts Foundation in Miami. The exhibition will run from 7 December through 21 December, with an opening reception on 6 December to coincide with Art Basel 2014.
ICEBERG'S TONGUE gathers artists who, in their work and practice, speak to nomadic existence. The artists in the exhibition approach provisionality, impermanence and movement from different perspectives, ranging from astronomical constellations, to transcultural mythology, to big data. The works, in painting, video, sculpture, and mixed media, chart myriad instances of transient objects, artifacts, and gestures.
The aesthetic of passage and circulation is matched by the sprawling, circuitous architecture of the NE 2nd Avenue studio building, itself a temporary camp for nomadic artists who travel to participate in the YoungArts residency program. In Iceberg’s Tongue, transient objects converge, momentarily “popping up” in a transient space, only to disassemble and disperse in a few weeks’ time.
Organized by James Weingrod and Baris Gokturk, the exhibition includes works by artists Emmy Catedral, Katherine Behar, Sarada Rauch, JD Fernandez, Claudia Pena Salinas, Caroline Burghardt, Baris Gokturk, and Becky Brown.
ICEBERG'S TONGUE is free and will be open to the public 7 – 21 December 2014, from 9 AM - 6 PM. The YoungArts Foundation Studio is located at 2144 NE 2nd Avenue in Miami.
ICEBERG'S TONGUE will appear concurrently in the space with a second exhibition, “Sunk”, organized by General Practice’s Carlos Rigau.
