“IRIDESCENCE” Exhibition in Miami Presents ‘New Futurism’ Art

The number of events cashing in on Miami Art Week was extensive and impossible to list, but one that stood out was Sarah Potter and Hannah Stouffer's prismatic "IRIDESCENCE" exhibit. The show took place in the 3rd floor Gallery at the Shore Club South Beach, where a friendly mermaid in the lobby pointed you to a futuristic installation featuring international artists including Justin Lovato, Adam Friedman, Lala Abaddon, Francesco Locastro, Gustavo Torres (KidMoGraph), Ultramajic, Jose Di Gregorio, Jonny Alexander, and Hilary White.

The number of events cashing in on Miami Art Week was extensive and impossible to list, but one that stood out was Sarah Potter and Hannah Stouffer’s prismatic “IRIDESCENCE” exhibit. The show took place in the 3rd floor Gallery at the Shore Club South Beach, where a friendly mermaid in the lobby pointed you to a futuristic installation featuring international artists including Justin Lovato, Adam Friedman, Lala Abaddon, Francesco Locastro, Gustavo Torres (KidMoGraph), David Cook (Bonethrower), Ultramajic, Jose Di Gregorio, Jonny Alexander, and Hilary White. Their works are representative of what the curators call the ‘New Futurism’ genre, a style of work that expresses interest in math and science, as it applies to the artists’ visions of nature and fantasies about other-worlds. The exhibition offered several Op-art inspired paintings by Justin Lovato, Adam Friedman, who also designed a massive sculptural space for SCOPE Miami Beach (covered here), and Jonny Alexander, who we found collaborating on the “IRIDESCENCE” mural with artist Aaron Glasson (covered here) in Wynwood. We were also introduced to the psychological photography project by Radiant Human, a project that captures your mood through a specially-designed lomography camera inside of a structure that looks like a lunar outpost. Though the event ended with the rest of Miami Art Week, you can still find the “IRIDESCENCE” mural at the Electric Pickle in Wynwood, which will remain there indefinitely. Take a look at more images from the exhibition below.

In her latest series, “Seer,” mixed-media artist Hilary White explores the possibilities of scientific progress and our faith in its explanation of reality. With her unique combination of painting and sculpture, her works have a cosmic feel to them, like portals into other worlds. By combining bright glossy colors with actual light sources and mirrors, her sculptures glow and come alive, becoming a mesmerizing bit of eye candy for the viewer to lose themselves in.
Francisco Esnayra When you’re faced with fairs measured in dozens, visiting every Miami Art Week offering isn’t feasible if you really want to enjoy it. Our suggestion: Check their social feeds or websites and pick a couple fairs that speak to you. Each one is going to offer some surprises. And even in repeat visits to events like Art Miami and Spectrum Miami, we saw gems that eluded us the first time around.
