On Friday, March 2 FANs enjoyed the recently reopened Bass Museum on Miami Beach and our funded show, Mika Rottenberg: NoNoseKnows.
Mika Rottenberg’s self-titled solo exhibition presents a selection of work created within the past two years. Her work often focuses on elucidating the mechanics of late-stage, global capitalism by way of absurd and poetic comparisons. The exhibition features the U.S. debut of several works, including a new variant of the artist’s recent commission for Sculptor Projekte Münster (2017) titled Cosmic Generator (loaded #2).
In a parallel gallery, NoNoseKnows (AP) (2015), punctuates the space with a video and sculptural installation that combines fact and fiction, documenting a group of Chinese laborers who harvest pearls from oysters in ZhuJi, China, empty high rises near Shanghai, and a fictional set built in the artist’s studio in New York. Also you can see Ugo Rondinone’s work which has been extended.
Lunch after the tour was at Sylvano’s Restaurant, a five-minute walk from the museum.
Hosts for this contemporary and whimsical exhibition were Terri Mason and Susan Geisenheimer.
