The Frank presents New Industry: Contemporary Visions of the Industrial
Aug 8, 2019
The Frank art gallery in Pembroke Pines presents New Industry: Contemporary Visions of the Industrial, an exhibition focused on industrial aesthetic, blurring the lines between fine art, mechanical design and fabrication while also challenging traditional artmaking materials and techniques. New Industry is on display from August 29th through October 26th, 2019.
The public is invited to the New Industry opening reception on Thursday, August 29th from 6-9pm. Guests will be treated to a performance by top Miami rap artist and Pembroke Pines native, Sam Stan. Admission is free.
Curated by The Frank’s Chief Curator Joshua Carden, the new exhibition features the work of artists Nestor Arenas, Yves Gabriel, Kx2, Devora Perez and Norman Silva along with a video piece by Layne Hinton and Chris Foster. Each of the artists employ a minimalist tendency while engaging the viewer with work grounded in industrialization, gentrification and/or the notion of change through industrial materials.
“Oftentimes, in urban environments, the viewer is met with a combination of aesthetics and materials. New Industry seeks to contextualize this industrial aesthetic as an artistic result of urbanization,” said Carden. “We are excited to showcase the unique work that these artists have created and hope that this compelling exhibition leaves visitors with a new perspective on the world around them.”
In The Frank’s Third Space Gallery, which specifically focuses on supporting non-profit organizations, educational partners, underrepresented populations and community advocacy groups, an exhibition featuring artwork by students of Fletcher Art & Cultural Center in Pembroke Pines will be on display. Fletcher Art & Cultural Center provides year-round art, piano, guitar and drama classes for children and adults for all skill levels. As part of New Industry, The Frank also will offer free fun, engaging and educational workshops, lectures and events for children and adults.
