The Frank is pleased to present New Industry: Contemporary Visions of the Industrial, which runs from August 29, 2019 to October 26, 2019.
This survey of the industrial aesthetic blurs the lines between fine art, mechanical design and fabrication and challenges traditional art making materials and techniques. 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. 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.
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 29, 2019, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Reception 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.
