The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum will host the opening reception of two new exhibitions, Tour de France/Florida: Contemporary Artists from France in FloridaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Private Collection and color on color. These new exhibitions focus on contemporary artists from France, some of which have never been seen by the public before. Visitors will have the opportunity to view paintings by prominent and well-known contemporary French artists from the private collections in Florida and celebrated Geometric Abstraction artists from the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Buenos Aires (MACBA). Join us for the opening reception during Target Wednesday After Hours on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. which is free and open to the public.
This exhibition of Tour de France/Florida: Contemporary Artists from France in FloridaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Private Collections, presented by The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at FIU and in collaboration with the Consulate General of France and the France-Florida Foundation for the Arts, is born from a desire to measure the presence of French art, diffused yet significant, in private collections of the region. The elaboration phase of the exhibition demonstrated the abundance of collections in Florida and the generosity of the collectors. Together these artists demonstrate a number of interesting perspectives as it showcases artists of international renown, like Christian Boltanski and Sophie Calle; artists not well recognized in Florida, outside of the circle of well-versed collectors, like Jean-Pierre Khazem and Denise A. Aubertin, and young artists like Gyan Panchal. Also lending to the exhibitions perspective are works from The Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry, which relies on the articulation between visual arts and writing.
color on color marks the inaugural exhibition of the collaboration of The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University, Miami and Museum of Contemporary Art, Buenos Aires (MACBA). This exhibition includes works by Ilya Bolotwosky, Alexander Liberman, Carlos Cruz-Diez, and Joel Stein among many others. Curated by Constanza Cerullo, this will be the first of an on-going series of programs and exhibitions between the two institutions.
This event is free and open to the public.
