Thomas Bayrle: One Day on Success Street
MIAMI, UNITED STATES  •  Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami  •  29 November 2016 - 26 March 2017
 
Featuring some 75 works from 1960s through the present day, the exhibition begins with German artist Thomas Bayrle’s handmade representations of highways expressively rendered as elaborate landscapes. In a related series of works, these motifs evolve into modern cities and waves of pedestrians set into interminable grids. At the center of Bayrle’s focus is the experience of the urban citizen and the artist—in works from the 1980s, landscapes and architectures unfold into surreal human figures. Bayrle’s preoccupation with figures like Carlos the Jackal, considered the world’s first terrorist, explore experiences of alienation and trauma. By contrast, works from the series “Feuer im Weizen” (Fire in the Wheat), which incorporates renderings of sexual acts, are expressions of fascination and joy, of mutation and fracture. Characteristic of Bayrle’s references to commercial icons and consumer culture, the works reflect the artist’s interest in the transformation of popular figures in a media-saturated world.

Known for his prescient depictions of mega cities and bodies consumed by machines, Thomas Bayrle (b. 1937) is a Frankfurt-based artist whose works spans mediums and movements including Pop, Op, and Conceptual art. His humorous and satirical multi-media works are characterized by “super- forms,” large images composed of repetitive smaller cell-like patterns. His work is influenced by his experience of growing up in post-Nazi Germany, where he trained and worked as an industrial weaver.

Julio Le Parc: Form into Action
MIAMI, UNITED STATES  •  Pérez Art Museum Miami  •  18 November 2016 - 19 March 2017
 

Julio Le Parc (b. 1928, Mendoza, Argentina) is a central and influential figure in participatory kinetic art, who has been largely overlooked in the United States, until now. Form into Action, which is the first solo museum exhibition and only comprehensive survey of the artist’s work in North America features more than 100 works produced by Le Parc between 1958 and 2013. The exhibition explores how the artist sought to ‘demystify art’, breaking down barriers between artwork, viewer and museum.

Comprised of more than 100 works, including large-scale installations and rarely seen works on paper and archival material, the exhibition delves into the artist’s groundbreaking innovations in the fields of light, movement and perception, developed over the course of an almost sixty-year career.
