Locust Projects will 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 1,000 lbs 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. Pore also includes a series of metal sculptures, including a monumental-scale necklace that hangs from the ceiling, based on an original piece constructed from a repurposed drain cover and paperclips. Further inside the exhibition is Cut Piece, a work that consists of dissected metal tubes with sharp points at its extremities, cross-sectioned like a medical school cadaver, oozing rubber appendages. Along the perimeter of the space, metal mannequins support the four costumes that are attached to the rubber pours. New York choreographer/dancer Silas Riener will interact with the sculptural installation through a performance developed collaboratively with Friedman. Performed in the round, for a standing audience, Reiner will, in turn, put on each costume and dramatize a choreographed series of movements that explore the qualities associated with each humor. Performances: Monday at 3; Tuesday & Wednesday at 8; Thursday at 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday at 11 a.m.; Saturday at 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday at 11 a.m.

Known for her monumental sculptures of the human form, Feuerman is the only figurative artist to paint bronze for use in outdoor public art, and the only sculptor to install this life-like art in water. She is the originator of the “painting with fire” technique, in which she pours, splatters and splashes six or more different molten metals to create unique art. At the book signing, enjoy one-of-a-kind art displays throughout the hotel, live entertainment and cocktails and bites from Tamara Bistro.

PAMM commissioned a collaborative performance between musician Devonté Hynes (Blood Orange) and artist Ryan McNamara and includes an original multi-part composition by Hynes, an internationally-acclaimed musician and producer, and sculptural elements and choreography by McNamara, a celebrated performance artist. The performance is an allegory of Miami’s history as a place of fantasy and fragmentation. The two artists, assisted by Miami-based musicians and dancers, will respond to South Florida sites of displacement and fantasy: High rises at the Ocean’s edge, Opa-locka, a recovering neighborhood with a dense concentration of Moorish architecture; Vizcaya, an opulent estate on the shores of Coconut Grove characterized by faux-historic European opulence; and Coral Castle, an otherworldly monument made by a Latvian immigrant in the fits of unrequited love. The event is open to PAMM Sustaining and above level members as well as Art Basel Miami Beach, Design Miami/ and Art Miami VIP cardholders.

Daniel Arsham’s exhibition, "The Future Was Written" at YoungArts, begins with nearly 2,000 objects made of chalk and evolves during Miami Art Week with the markings, drawings and words of visitors on the gallery's black chalkboard walls. In signature Arsham style, these objects represent body parts, such as hands and faces as well as outmoded communication devices including cameras, telephones, video game controllers, and computers. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to write, draw and make their markings on the walls of the gallery, with the chalk casts progressively disappearing throughout the duration of the show. Epitomizing many of the prevalent themes and motifs in Arsham's work - including the interplay of archaeology and architecture, eroding environments overtaken by nature, and the blurred line between the real and imagined — the exhibition will provide vistiors with a unique experience as actors and creators over a period of time. Curated by Franklin Sirmans, the Director of Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM).

Colombia is the gateway to Latin America at MOCA’s Art Basel 2015 exhibition with the opening of “Carlos Salas: Latin America and the Global Imagination.” Curated by MOCA Executive Director Babacar MBow, in partnership with the Consulate of the Republic of Colombia in Miami, the exhibition features 60 monumental abstract paintings by the artist. Born in 1957, Salas studied architecture at the University of Los Andes and painting at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He received multiple accolades for his contributions to abstract art, and at the age of 42 he was the youngest artist to ever present a retrospective at the Bogota Museum of Modern Art. Salas’ blazing spirit is evident in his elaborate brush strokes that resemble scratches and scars that – while open to interpretation and analysis – cannot hide the artist’s intensity and passion. The exhibition opens on Wednesday from 6 to 10 p.m.

Organized by the Parrish Art Museum in The Hamptons, and curated by Terrie Sultan, the exhibition will be open to the public during Miami Art Week and continueing through March 27, 2016. The Ladd Brothers have dedicated the past sixteen years to collaborating on works of art which represent their shared memories. Mary Queen of the Univeerse, now on its second stop from the Parrish Art Museum, explores their experiences at their St. Louis Catholic grade school. A personal statement, the exhibition offers towers, mini maquettes, books, drawings, and prints, which took four years to create. Their signature hand sewn boxes contain meticulously constructed environments. When closed and stacked, the boxes become sculptural towers, majestic works of art, at rest until the towers are dismantled and contents revealed. It is often through a rhythmic and choreographed performance that the brothers open the boxes and arrange them in their own personal landscape formation. Admission is free.

Miami Dade College’s MDC Live Arts will present Holoscenes, a provocative performance art piece, at the Wolfson Campus, Kyriakides Plaza. Created by arts visionary and TED Senior Fellow, Lars Jan, to “make people feel climate change in their gut, rather than just understand it,” Holoscenes is an epic performance-installation that embodies the trauma of flooding and explores the evolution of human endurance and habitual behavior in the context of natural catastrophe. It is a visceral, cross-disciplinary project born out of the widely shared concern that our troubled relationship to water will become the central issue of the 21st century. Holoscenes will activate the plaza with an elevator-sized aquarium filled and drained by a custom hydraulic system. Viewable from 360 degrees, it will be inhabited by performers conducting everyday behaviors (e.g. selling fruit, getting dressed, reading a paper, tuning a guitar) and curated via a global open-call submission process. As water rises and falls, the performers strive to continue their activities, swimming to the top for air, diving down, and adapting to the new environment. Hydrophones allow audiences access to sounds inside the aquarium, which then become part of Holoscenes’ otherworldly soundscape. Experience it for yourself Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Thursday through Saturday from 2 to 8 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Sylvie Fleury is known for her seductive works that re-contextualize status symbols, luxury goods and brand slogans. Eternity Now, 2015, her newest site-specific neon, will be installed on the façade of the Bass Museum of Art’s Art Deco building during Art Basel, and on view through May 31, 2016. The exhibition is part of bassX, the museum’s series of artist projects presented during its year-long renovation. Fleury draws from elements of 20th Century art and consumer society to investigate the ideas of cultural desire. Her works explore the construction of identity and the absurdity of the quest for self-perfection. In a separate project, Fleury has created a custom-designed banner that encircles the construction site of the Bass Museum’s building renovation. The pattern recalls the artist’s series of Go Bust paintings, 2005, which were inspired by early self-portraits of her silhouette in a polka-dot sweater. Fleury lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland, and has been a significant figure on the international art scene since her first exhibition in 1990.

BFI will present the last show in its current location before the area becomes the site of a massive urban development masterplan starting next year to construct the Miami World Mall. In this immediate context, the exhibition PĿΛNΞS collaboratively speculates on a possible trajectory for BFI and spaces that share a similar DNA. Art has persistently prototyped lifestyles, new forms of labour and innovative infrastructures, rapidly changing the ways we live and the cities we live in. The divisions between the places we live in, work in and socially interact in are collapsing at the same time as the available and affordable space in the most desirable locations worldwide is constantly shrinking. We have become increasingly nomadic, rooted in globally dispersed networks that are as diverse as they are abstract, based on temporary impact points as crystallizations of otherwise transient moments. Curated by Anna Frost, co-director of the renowned Danish artist-run space TOVES, and Berlin-based artist and curator Annika Kuhlmann, this show explores hybrid structures that can meet the growing demand for flexibility and mobility. On view from December 1 through 27.

NC Contemporary will host an official Art Basel Miami Beach Artist Studio Tour, open to the press and ABMB VIP card holders, to Asif Farooq's Studio for a rare opportunity to view Farooq's Balalaika. This monumental sculpture, a full scale, cold war era MiG-21 jet fighter is fabricated entirely out of paper. Miami-born Asif Farooq has harbored a fascination with human flight since childhood. Balalaika, measuring 18' by 52' by 32', and created out of 250,000 individual parts, is the fulfillment of this passion. Born in 1979, the son of a civil engineer, Farooq has spent much of his life balancing his need to create as an artist, while learning technical skills such as welding, electronics engineering, and the theoretical frameworks behind working machinery. For Balalaika, Farooq chose paper to impart a sense of the sculpture's fragility, impermanence and ephemeral nature. Though made from the commonplace and temporary, this 4,000 pound sculpture conveys great biographical importance that is not accidental. Still flown by over 28 Nations around the world, the MiG-21 jet fighter is a vessel of beauty and destruction, a contradiction of choices and desires, and the perfect subject for Farooq to examine his own life and existence. Open to Art Basel cardholders and press.
