New Industry presents the work of 5 South Florida artists: Nestor Arenas, Yves Gabriel, Kx2, Devora Perez, Norman Silva, Layne Hinton and Chris Foster. These artists employ a minimalist tendency while engaging the viewer with work grounded in industrialization, gentrification, and/or the notion of change through industrial materials.
This survey of the industrial aesthetic blurs the lines between fine art, mechanical design and fabrication and challenges traditional art making materials and techniques. Oftentimes, in urban environments, the viewer is met with a combination of aesthetics and materials. New Industry seeks to contextualize this industrial aesthetic as an artistic result of urbanization.
An Open Reception will be held on August 29th where guests will enjoy a performance by top Miami rap artist and Pembroke Pines native, Sam Stan. The Third Space Gallery will feature an exhibition of artwork by the students of Fletcher Art & Cultural Center. Free to the public. Complimentary refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
