The Christmas Show @ Guccivuitton, Dec 1 – Jan 9

14 December 2015

The Christmas Show group exhibition is on at Miami’s Guccivuitton, opening December 1 and running to January 9, 2016.

Featuring the likes of Cristine Brache, Autumn Casey, Phillip Estlund and Hugo Montoya among others, the press release consists solely of lyrics from WHAM!’s famous hit ‘Last Christmas’. The work is installed to make one feel as if they were walking through a Christmas display at a shopping mall, only the usual items one would expect to see have been disrupted in some form, such as with Paul McCarthy’s infamous ‘Santa with Butt Plug.

Other artists in the exhibition include Henning Fehr und Philipp Rühr, Elizabeth Ferry, Ash Ferlito, Kathryn Marks, Jonathan Peck, Teresa Sanchez, Richard Spit, Michael Swaney and Matt Taber, which will also be marked by a Holiday Party on December 25, with performances by Waterfront (Patricia Margarita Hernandez & Craig Poor Monteith),  Jan & Dave,  and Kayla de la Cerda.

Guccivuitton @ ICA Miami, May 14 – Sep 25

15 May 2015

Guccivuitton will be participating in its first museum exhibition at Miami’s Institute of Contemporary Art, running from May 14 to September 25.

The artist-run collective and gallery hasn’t been around too long, but has made a name for itself on the Miami art scene. The collective, composed of artists Loriel Beltran, Domingo Castillo, Armas Gutierrez and Jonathan Gonzalez, will construct a four-story “salesroom” and customized storage racks designed in collaboration with Jonathan Gonzalez of Office GA.

In this salesroom,  Guccivuitton will hang unsold works arranged by medium and size to “emphasize their commodity status, and to suggest questions of value inherent to a gallery or a museum”, creating a tongue-in-cheek critique of the commercialization and consumptive reduction of the contemporary art world. The group exhibition includes 24 participating artists and collectives, including Cristine Brache, Agatha Wara (of Luxury Face), and Phillip Estlund.
