Ronald Feldman Fine Arts will show the work of gallery-represented artists Eleanor Antin, Kelly Heaton, Christine Hill and Brian Knep.
Eleanor Antin's large-scale photographic series Helen's Odyssey (2008) imagines the life and times of Helen of Troy. The series is composed of nine dramatic scenes in which warriors, artists, gods, and goddesses emerge in a set of luminous archaelogical reveries from Helen's historically fragmented life.
A selection of new works on paper by Kelly Heaton will also be on view. Heaton's colorful works on paper blend themes of nature and spirit and were most recently shown in a solo exhibition of her work, entitled The Parallel Series, at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts.
Christine Hill's work explores the intersection of small business and art through her long-running proprietorship of Volksboutique. Several of her vernacular “service slogan” posters, which are implemented in all of Volksboutique’s large-format installations, will be shown in Miami.
The gallery will also show Brian Knep’s immersive, interactive series of digital installations, Exempla (2008). The series was inspired by a three-year-old’s drawings saved from the garbage. Small creatures teem across the projection, covering the gallery walls and reacting to the changes viewers impose on their world. These cartoonish creatures each appear purposeful, as if striving for something particular amidst their intense group behavior.
