5 - 8 December 2019
Miami Beach, Florida
Victoria Miro is delighted to participate in Art Basel Miami Beach (Booth H7) with works united by the theme of water, by Doug Aitken, Milton Avery, Jules de Balincourt, Hernan Bas, María Berrío, Elmgreen & Dragset, Secundino Hernández, David Hockney, Christian Holstad, Isaac Julien, Yayoi Kusama, Wangechi Mutu, Chris Ofili, Jorge Pardo, Celia Paul, Howardena Pindell, Tal R, Do Ho Suh and Caroline Walker.
From bathtubs to swimming pools to oceans, while a number of works on view consider water as a life force and an agent of change, or bathing as a leisure pursuit and a social activity, others explore water’s properties of transparency and reflection, or invite us to meditate on the psychological and metaphorical associations of the colour blue.
Isaac Julien’s nine-screen installation (on view 5–8 December 2019) offers a meditation on the iconic work and legacy of the visionary modernist architect and designer, Lina Bo Bardi. Presented by Victoria Miro, Nara Roseler, Jessica Silverman in collaboration with Ron Mandos.
Curated by Magalí Arriola, Meridians is an ambitious new sector that will premiere at the 18th edition of the Miami Beach show this December.
