Nicolas Lobo Opening Reception at Charest-Weinberg Gallery

Nicolas Lobo Opening Reception at Charest-Weinberg GalleryTuesday, November 30, 5-7pm – Charest-Weinberg Gallery, 250 NW 23rd St, Space 408, Miami Wynwood Arts District

Charest-Weinberg Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in the Wynwood District of Miami, where it has existed since 2007. The gallery has produced nearly 30 solo and group exhibitions by emerging and under represented artists from around the world. Many of these exhibitions have been documented in hard cover print editions.

Lobo’s research-intensive, process-oriented production begins with deep immersion in a broad spectrum of topics, from fringe subcultures and hidden networks—the Raëlian movement, the Go-Go dance scene, illicit pirate radio—to points of friction within the urban milieu—transnational multi-service shops, illegal drug fabrication sites, informal markets. The list of materials he has employed ranges from grape-flavored cough syrup to play-dough, terrazzo, Napalm, and a defunct soft drink with supposed aphrodisiac qualities. In recent years, the Miami-based artist has focused on ways in which the human body extends into socioeconomic space, and vice versa.
