AUTOPIA: Road Trips from the Cold War to the Present
Autopia explores the ubiquitous presence of the automobile in contemporary culture. â€œAutopiaâ€ combines the words auto and Utopia to highlight the importance that the car industry played as one of the paramount symbols of progress in the 20th Century. What is its place in contemporary culture? Does car culture remain central to our ideal of progress? In this exhibition, the legacy of automobiles is being reviewed and reassessed through the work of artists from three continents.
The exhibition is divided in four thematic groups, dealing with the central role of cars in the American High/Way of Life, the USA-USSR fight for consumersâ€™ hearts and minds during the Cold War, the impact of automobiles in the natural realm, and the ways in which it has affected human lives, rewriting maps through commerce and migration, and changing urban centers like Miami.
Participating Artists include:
Jairo Alfonso, AdriÃ¡n Balseca, Yael Bartana, CÃ©sar BeltrÃ¡n, Timothy Buwalda, Carlos Luis DeMedeiros, Rigoberto DÃaz MartÃnez, Daniel Evans, Luis Gispert, Pablo Helguera, Alex Heria, Marisa Jahn, Ernesto Kunde, Volodymyr Kuznetsov, Carlos Marcial, Frank E.

The exhibition is the first solo show of acclaimed Doha-based artist Aparna Jayakumar in America. We are presenting works from her series Goodbye Padmini, a photographic documentation of the classic Mumbai taxis and the culture around them, which is rapidly disappearing, along with the vehicles. In addition to the photographs, an homage to the iconic vehicle will be installed as a pooja comprised of Padmini material culture sourced by the artist in a recent trip home. On view at the Bakehouse Art Complex November 28, 2016 â€“ January 2, 2017 in the Swenson Gallery. Opening Reception with the artist Monday, November 28 from 7-9pm.
