Already known for its programs during Art Basel Miami and Frieze New York, Seven Miami is more of an exhibition than an art fair.  At the Dallas Contemporary, Seven will feature BravinLeePierogiP.P.O.W.Ronald Feldman, Houston’s Inman Gallery, and San Francisco’s Catharine Clark Gallery who will have exhibiting artist Walter Robinson in attendance.


WIPE OUT is a collection of re-worked, appropriated imagery posted by females on the popular site, Tumblr. Pomara prints the low-resolution images repeatedly using custom digital glitches. Creatively disrupting the initial picture, the images are altered into a new digitized abstraction, producing a fresh new version of the mediated image. The final result is works printed on a transparency film that floats unframed on the gallery walls.
Josephine Durkin’s research and studio practice involves the creation of drawings, videos, sculptures and large-scale interactive and kinetic installations that personify recognizable or manipulated objects and materials. These are then used to suggest, mimic, invite or isolate human gestures, activities and relationships. She generates her drawings and paintings from object-making processes. The artist photographs leftover studio residue and prints them on heavyweight papers. The photographs are then used as a source material for her work in other media.


This exclusive event is open only to members of the McKinney Avenue Contemporary’s Professional & Artists Collective (MAC PAC).  For information about becoming a member and attending this event, please visit here
