Saturday, December 7, 9am-12 pm - Between Walls by Juan López VIP Breakfast Reception (by invitation only)
In partnership with Acción Cultural Española and Bass Museum of Art. On view through January 12, 2014
Juan López’s work explores the aesthetic possibilities of the urban environment, playing with spaces, mixing video projections and installations, designing complex iconic buildings and changing the perception of the architecture. In Between Walls, he introduces the pedestrian mall into the gallery in one piece while exposing the exhibition and its visitors through another. By extending drawing onto the gallery’s architecture, López manipulates the interior of the space. These interventions that modify the established could be considered a form of poetic resistance.

Brisky Gallery Miami is proud to present Affiliated: The Art of the Urban Experience; an exhibition curated by Luis Valle, Brisky Gallery’s Director in collaboration with Jesse Henderson. The show will reflect a diverse approach at creating work influenced by urban settings. The exhibit will feature works by over 20 artists local, national and international. It will include a large yet cohesive range of work from painting, drawings, photography, sculpture and new media. “Affiliated”, is a result of the current movement in art, which reflects on the urban experience. Many urban, street, muralist and as well as fine artists rely on certain affiliations in order to succeed and accomplish their goals. Whether they are traveling to a new city and need someone to show them around or maybe they need to locate a wall to paint, artist use their affiliations to get the job done. Artists are affiliated but not limited only to by crews, peers, countries, medium, sponsors, galleries and friends. Without this an artist job is much more difficult. This also reflects on the old saying, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Every connection leads to a new adventure and is part of the process of the artist’s creation. This exhibit brings to Miami a solid lineup of artists who have a diverse background of both urban and fine artwork. Each artist is well known in their respective circles yet somehow were all affiliated by a different source. Opening reception is on December 3, at 7PM, the Art Basel Reception on Saturday, December 7th at 7pm, and Brisky BBQ on Sunday Dec. 8th 4-9pm.
