Anri Sala: Purchase Not By Moonlight
May 30, 2009-January 24, 2010
Curated by Raphaela Platow
Co-organized by the Contemporary Arts Center in the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art and Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami
Opening in Miami during Art Basel, this first major exhibition of the Albanian artist Anri Sala's videos, films and photographs in the United States is carefully calibrated with the architecture of the Rosenthal Center to present a spatial and time-based multimedia experience. Sala's presentations can be understood as choreographed installations in which the artist carefully considers the dialogue between the works and the space. In addition to the onsite presentation of Sala's work, the CAC will present a performance created by Sala. Sala's first US publication, an illustrated catalog with essays by Svetlana Boym, Michael Fried, Raphaela Platow, Bonnie Clearwater (MOCA, North Miami Executive Director and Chief Curator), and others will accompany the exhibition. Following its presentation at MOCA North Miami, the exhibition will be on view at the CAC May 30-August 30, 2009. Though both institutions share the exhibition, in reality the installation should be considered two subsequent, separate volumes, as each presentation is intended to occupy and respond to the respective spaces.
Exhibition Sponsor: Duke Energy; Lightborne Sponsor In-Kind: Turnbull-Wahlert Construction, Inc.
