Cementing its reputation as a cultural anchor in the community, ICA Miami debuts during Art Basel Miami Beach/Miami Art Week an exhibition of rare works from the ‘90s by late artist Michel Majerus, as well as a suite of new large-scale works by artist Nina Chanel Abney, running through Mar. 12. The artist’s Progressive Aesthetics explores varied and timely interpretations of capitalism, including the pervasiveness of images and a belief in the wide cultural impact of art. Meanwhile, Nina Chanel Abney’s Big Butch Energy, is a suite of new large-scale works that advances her signature mode of vibrant and immediate narrative paintings that comment on identity and social structures. It reflects on American culture to reveal its exclusive, gendered and racist undercurrents. Also on view through Apr. 30 is Hervé Télémaque: 1959–1964, a presentation of over a dozen paintings from the artist’s first 5 years of production. As one of the preeminent painters of the postwar period, with an artistic output that spans grotesque figuration to Pop art and assemblage, Télémaque has been at the forefront of a number of modes that characterize contemporary art; ICAMiami.org.
