Adam Putnam Opening & Performance at Locust Projects Saturday, September 8, 6:30pm – Locust Projects , 3852 North Miami Avenue, Miami Design District

Locust Projects, Miami’s premier experimental art exhibition space, celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2013. Locust Projects is pleased to announce the first Miami solo exhibition by New York-based artist Adam Putnam, featuring an installation in the main gallery. Below, the artist describes the origins of the project:
“A darkened space conceived for Locust Projects in Miami, a city defined by light toward the brighter end of the spectrum, articulated by pale pinks and hazy outlines. The space will be a cool shadow, which viewers may enter, pass through, and as if by chance, encounter photographs, portraits, film stills and other fragments. An orphaned brick pillar standing alone in the center of the space like the remnant of a nameless, indeterminate space, half remembered…a romanesque abbey, an ancient mosque, a gothic vault beneath an altar, a crypt, Piranesi’s prison, Escher’s gallery. An armature for the experience of finding oneself alone in an architectural immensity that falls away and recedes in perspective like fading memories and fog enshrouded mountains.” On view through October 17, 2012. Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Saturday, 12-5pm or by appointment
