What: Art and Design in the Modern Age: Selections from The Wolfsonian Collection

When:On Going

Where: The Wolfsonian–FIU

How much: $12

Go To Event Webpage

Art and Design in the Modern Age provides an overview of the museum’s holdings of American and European artifacts from 1850 to 1950. Culled from the Wolfsonian collection are approximately 300 works in a variety of formats, ranging from books, posters, and postcards to decorative arts, architectural models, paintings, and sculptures. Focal points include design-reform movements, urbanism, industrial design, transportation, world’s fairs, advertising, and political propaganda.

This evergreen exhibition, inaugurated in November 1995 and periodically updated, examines the ways in which art and design have both influenced and adapted to the modern world. During the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries, the fine arts were characterized by unprecedented experimentation and innovation, while design became a critical issue for producers and consumers as machine-made objects replaced those crafted by hand. The works on display demonstrate designers’ responses to the profound social and technological changes stimulated by the Industrial Revolution and reveal how people living in this tumultuous period viewed the world and their place in it.

Sylvie Fleury is known for her seductive works that re-contextualize status symbols, luxury goods and brand slogans. Eternity Now, 2015 is her latest site-specific neon, and is installed on the historic, Art Deco façade of The Bass, facing Collins Park.

“Sylvie Fleury uses contemporary iconography to suggest a deeper irony,” says curator Jose Carlos Diaz. “While the museum undergoes its transformation, her glowing text ‘Eternity Now’, amplifies the museum’s present and infinite future all at once, while also speaking to the visitors of Miami Beach.”

CHESS TABLES
ON LONG-TERM VIEW

Jim Drain is best known for his work using textiles, specifically yarn, as part of the highly-influential Fort Thunder community in Rhode Island. He was also a member of Forcefield, a collective whose practice combined music, performance, film and installation, and exhibited in the 2002 Whitney Biennial.

For The Bass Projects, Drain produced two chess tables and four chairs, designed to provide a social gathering point for chess enthusiasts in Collins Park. The project is inspired by public chess tables in other urban parks, such as Harvard Square in Cambridge, Mass.; Tompkins Square Park in New York City; and the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris.

Drain’s chess tables and chairs explore the use of pattern through a complex geometric design that uses steel tubing and terrazzo tiles. Visitors are encouraged to activate the public artwork by borrowing chess (or checker) pieces from the museum’s front desk during museum opening hours (temporarily located at the Miami Beach Regional Library space).

Jim Drain (b. 1975, Cleveland) lives and works in Miami, Fla. He has exhibited extensively in the United States and abroad, with solo exhibitions at the University of Florida; Locust Projects, Miami; and the Blanton Museum of Art, University of Texas, Austin. His work is in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Pérez Art Museum, Miami; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Drain was one of two recipients of the 2005 Baloise Prize, and was recently recognized alongside Bhakti Baxter for creating some of the “best public art projects in the nation” by Americans for the Arts. Drain and the artist Naomi Fisher run The Bas Fisher Invitational space in Miami.
