Miamism Fridays – Cruz Diez at MAM

I was so excited to hear that Cruz Diez had an exhibit at The Miami Art Museum.  I grew up with this Venezuelan Artist’s sculptures around me and sometimes think that he was instrumental in my love for color.  This image was captured by ImageMD and I’m so happy he did because now I can spread the word about the exhibit.

….another Miamism !!

Carlos Cruz Diez: The Embodied Experience of Color explores the artist’s pioneering contribution to the experimental practices that emerged in the decades of the Sixties and Seventies that proposed the dematerialization of the object to create participatory environment that involved the body, senses and subjectivity of the spectator, turning the viewer into a participant in the art work.

Although Cruz Diez’ oeuvre is well known throughout Europe and Latin America, it is not as well recognized in the United States. The exhibition seeks to increase the understanding and appreciation of his work in this country. In his experimentation with color and perceptual structures, Cruz Diez proposed new definitions for the art work as a habitable environment and a field of active participation through the use of light, movement and space. The exhibition will be an occasion not only for the audience to get to know the work of one of Venezuela’s most celebrated artists and it will also provide an opportunity for challenging public discussions about interactive and participatory art.
