Horizons

March 16, 2019

Horizons is a series of paintings loosely based on the experience of spending time near the sea.In Deal,Kent UK and in Miami. Exploring the contrast between what appears to be a straight line and the infinite altering elements around it ,light in the sky and sea state. Never ceasing where we come and go. Max is interested in contrasting use of Acrylic brushed paint with the use of sprayed paint and the infinite subtlety and depth it can give to explore these relationships. While being influence by these elements these paintings develop in and of themselves to be about the physical properties of paint itself and types of marks rather than stories or pre determined images, the qualities of paint move towards and define the end composition.
A commonality between Max’ film work and painting is that there are rules to adhere to that he uses in both regarding composition, colour and harmony,organizing elements into a ‘finished’ appearance. The difference is that film work is budgeted and has to be previsualized and planned very precisely involving lots of different trades, whereas painting is like a rollercoaster ride where you have to hold on to all your thoughts and recognise their reassemblage by the end,a sort of giant sifting mechanism that has its own
gravity. Painting gives Max a way to explore more intangible subjects in finer detail than is the scope of Production Design.

El Cuerpo de la Obra

January 12, 2019

El Cuerpo De La Obra, (The Body of Work) is the latest exhibition by Venezuelan artist and fashion designer Lisu Vega. This interactive show consists of three installations: “The Recycled Body”, “One Love”, and “Resistance”; where each work explores and articulates, via dye-sublimation textiles, sculpture, installation and environment, a distinct narrative of social justice inspired by her Venezuelan-American identity. Her background in experimental graphics informs her entire practice, “fashion/art”, where she experiments with combining found materials, layered imagery, asymmetric cuts, natural fabrics and upcycled materials, which incorporate the human body as if it were a canvas.

The first piece in the show, “The Recycled Body”, will feature a choreographed performance alongside six sculptural figures conjoined by a long rope, echoing the theme of social issues that permeate her practice. This installation also displays Vega’s most recent collection, “Alana”.

Fureur de Vivre

December 06, 2018

“Fureur de Vivre (The fury of Living)” features paintings by Swiss artist Leza One in his first US solo exhibition. The works investigate the inner world and experiences of the portrayed subjects, revealing the range of human emotions hidden to the eyes, under the surface.

Leza One is a contemporary artist born in Geneva, Switzerland. He has been painting murals and exhibiting across the world for over 20 years. He first arrived in Miami when he was invited to paint a mural and to show his artwork in Wynwood for Art Whino Gallery during Art Basel 2011. His solo exhibition in Switzerland (“Urban Muses”), in 2014, drew a lot of attention. The exhibition at Laundromat Art Space investigates the shapes of human emotions.

Shape Shifting

November 10, 2018

Shape Shifting is a group exhibition by 17 artists from FIU's MFA Program working in a variety of media, offering diverse perspectives on the theme.

In the world we live in, a system of nonstop renewal is evolving – recycling, in the broad sense, takes place every moment. Adaptation and accommodation have become essential abilities.
Globalization, the rapid increase and diffusion of economic, cultural and psychological practices, compels us to examine our attitudes, our values and our thinking. We are challenged to reconsider who we are and who we are in relation to others and our environment. At best, it is an open-ended, creative process of construction and deconstruction.

To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly. —Henri Bergson

The exhibition aims to spark conversation and generate questions:

Who are we right now? Where are we going?
How do we, or how will we position and balance ourselves amidst fluidity and uncertainty?

 

INTERSPACE

October 06, 2018

 INTERSPACE inspires a dialogue between figuration and abstraction, examining the space between the subject and its essence, between the natural and architectural landscapes and the internal existential landscape or perception. Whether drawing upon the architecture of the natural, built or emotional environments all four artists seek to understand and distill a sense of space, both formally as construct and conceptually as perception.

JR Inside/Out

November 11, 2017

JR's photobooth truck will be at The Laundromat this Friday/Saturday! Come share your portrait in support of the Inside/Out Dreamers Project!

In the face of the Administration’s decision to rescind DACA, Emerson Collective is participating in the Inside Out/ Dreamers project to provide communities and local leaders a unique platform to amplify their voices.

Beyond any political debate about dreamers, these portraits remind us that behind the policies are real human stories that are deeply rooted in the story of this country. Inside Out/ Dreamers aims to represent the diversity and unity of people that can call America home. It is a nationwide participatory art initiative aimed at creating a portrait of America that includes immigrants and the descendants of immigrants alike.

The project takes part in Inside Out, a global participatory art project initiated by the award-winning artist JR to pay tribute to the power and dignity of individuals by displaying their portraits in public spaces around the world. People share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.

...and they all got together in a little row boat.

Wilderness | The Delicate and The Fierce

March 11, 2017

March 11 - April 3  2017

Opening : Saturday March 11  |  7 - 10 PM 

Performances : opening night only at 7:30 + 9:00 PM

Laundromat Art Space, 5900 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, 33127

 

curated by : Christin Paige Minnotte

with work by : Leah Brown, Christin Paige Minnotte, Christina Pettersson and Lisu Vega

Nature is still a symbol of the indecipherable, of a meaning greater than ourselves.

Wilderness the show seeks to explore this idea through the work of four artists, who examining spaces outside of “civilized" places, individually draw on different qualities of wilderness. 

 

Opening night only, there will be a live sculptural performance combining footage from the Alaskan wilderness, sculptural garments by Lisu Vega, and dance by Marisa Turner.

about the show

Wilderness.  What do you think of when you hear this word?  It's definition is straightforward : "an area of natural land not used by people".  It's meaning however, is complex.  The etymology of the word “wilderness" indicates it was not in use until circa 1200. Humanity hadn't yet a reason to distinguish the idea of a wild place from a civilized place. 800 years later humanity has grown even further from the wild, from nature.  Yet this “wild" still forms the building blocks of our world.  From it comes our air, our very sustenance; and from its expanse often comes our solace. Modern life tends to seek peace from nature or the wild because in many ways humanity still does, and arguably should, equate aspects of the meaning of existence with the natural world. Science continues to explore its wonders for the rules of space and time, for energy to power modern life, for clues to the mystery of its boundless beauty.  Why do we still seek meaning from the wilderness? Perhaps simply because we have yet to explain it; it still holds mystery.  Humanity is ever seeking to expand its existential vocabulary.  In some ways, "civilization" is what we have already learned put to creative practice.  The wilderness as a whole, however, though science understands how some mechanical aspects of it work, still retains clues to the origin of the universe not yet understood by people.  Nature is still a symbol of the indecipherable, of a meaning greater than ourselves.  Perhaps the definition of “wilderness” should be "the natural world, not yet understood".   Wilderness the show, seeks to explore this idea through the work of four artists examining spaces outside of “civilized" places which individually draw on different qualities of wilderness. 

 

Christin Paige Minnotte will be showcasing a new body of work on mirror inspired by the Voices of the Wilderness residency she completed in the Alaskan wilderness in the summer of 2016, with United States Forest Service Rangers tasked specifically with the preservation of this wilderness. Her view of natural phenomena seeks to isolate the ephemeral, otherworldly beauty; to distill the essence of the indescribable in the wilderness landscapes of Alaska and Wyoming. 

 

Leah Brown's landscape of dreams, seems to naturally draw from the wilderness as a building block for a continuing narrative oscillating between what we understand as real and unreal. 

 

Christina Pettersson's lyrical graphite drawings precisely iterate the natural landscape, but with such delicacy and simplicity as to exceed the literal, and capture the soul of a wild or natural place. 

 

Lisu Vega’s sculptural garments combine art, fashion and textile design to reflect the qualities and forms of the natural landscape in shape and texture.

Curated by Alex Nuñez 

Opening Reception

January 28, 2017 7-10 PM
Open to the public
On view thru February 2017 

Laundromat Art Space is pleased to present Sunday Painter, an interdisciplinary group show curated by Miami native 
Alex Nuñez. Sunday Painter is a visual exploration of the role of music in the artistic studio practice. Through 
auditory influence we become more intimate with the creative experience in this exhibition. 

Sunday Painter began a year ago as a podcast on KPISS.FM in Brooklyn, NY; this alternative studio visit has 
captured over 30 artists’ working processes and musical inspirations. In 2016, 37 episodes were recorded with artists 
across the country from diverse international backgrounds, working in various media. 

This group exhibition includes a survey of participating artists exploring themes of identity, perception, self reflection, 
millennial symbology, vanity, opulence, throwaway necessity, tropi-tourist consumerism and the transcendental 
exploration of art making. 

After a decade in New York, Nuñez has returned to Miami with a fresh take on Floridian culture. A majority of these 
artists have a limited relationship with her hometown, yet the aesthetic is spot on “Miami”. There is an undeniablelanguage of color and imagery that resonate with the Magic City.

See You On The Other Side

May 28, 2016

Saturday, May 28th, 8 pm - 12 am

 

Laundromat Art Space welcomes photographic artist Mark Reamy.  Mark will collaborate with the city of Miami, sharing his personal history with an unfamiliar public.

Mark encourages audience participation. With DJ King Cut (NYC/Miami) on the 1's and 2's and YOU dancing in front of his projected images, the audience will activate Mark's artwork by casting various shadows, and thereby impacting what the audience sees. Mark points multiple projectors at different angles. Shadows become dynamic, colorful movement, which starkly contrast with the stillness of photography. 

Mark believes photographs are memories -- exact moments of time and space.  By combining photographs, he can be in two places at once, simultaneously holding onto multiple memories. What happens when you combine a seemingly static past with an everchanging present moment? 

We are excited to share Mark Reamy's work at The Laundromat. Come Dance!
