MMG at Miami Project

The gallery is pleased to announce our inaugural participation in the second edition of Miami Project, a contemporary and modern art fair that will return to Miami’s Midtown Art District December 3-8th, 2013. Miami Project will showcase an eclectic array of 65 galleries from around the world in an exquisite setting.

Miami Project begins with a dedication to quality, both in content and production. The 2012 inaugural edition received high praise both for its well-designed 55,000 square foot structure and for its mix of new contemporary and emerging works with top quality 20th century offerings. Galleries are selected by a strict criteria including a rigorous, well reviewed exhibition history, involvement with top estates and museum shows, and past participation in major art fairs. The fair will also partner with the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami. The mutual sponsorship will include fair promotion to members and tours for their top donors during the fair.

“Art Basel Miami has a new fair in town, and if Miami Project’s first run is any indication, it will be a player for years to come.” – Paddy Johnson, Art Fag City

 “I was extremely impressed by the wide aisles, comfortable atmosphere and boutique nature of the fair and was delighted to find so many works that will enhance my collection. I am looking forward to returning to Miami Project next year.”  – Marty Margulies

“This is the way all art fairs should look and feel.” – Douglas Maxwell, Professor/Contemporary Art Advisor
Located at North 1st Avenue & NE 30th Street, Miami Project is ideally situated in the heart of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District and just two blocks from the Rubell Collection, and across the street from Art Miami. The fair provides attendees with easy access to parking and is a short distance from excellent Midtown accommodations and dining.

For more information, please visit the fair website. A full list of the featured artists in the gallery booth will be disclosed in November.

“L.A./Tex” Opens to Positive Response in Dallas

Co-curated by Mark Moore Gallery, “L.A./Tex” at Dallas’ Circuit 12 Contemporary opened last Friday to a positive audience. Featuring work by gallery program artists Tim Bavington, Dimitri Kozyrev, Julie Oppermann, and Feodor Voronov, “L.A./Tex” focuses on four abstract painters that grapple with duality. Says the gallery:

“While each painter exemplifies a kind of hybrid experience in his or her work, they differ vastly in their execution, aesthetic, and biography – creating an eclectic commentary about the nature of modern amalgamation.  As Tim Bavington fuses his love of guitar melodies with hard-edge abstraction, Feodor Voronov weds his bilingual abilities with an Ab-Ex tradition of mark making. Ali Smith escorts the viewer on a journey between the macro and micro in the same way Julie Oppermann manipulates the perception of the digital and analog, while Dimitri Kozyrev translates a lineage of Russian constructivism into globalized abstraction.”

“L.A./Tex” remains on view through November 18th, 2013. For more information, please contact Circuit 12.


SBMA Acquires Penelope Umbrico

We are pleased to announce the Santa Barbara Museum of Art has acquired work by program artist Penelope Umbrico. “Viral Codes / Seasonal (Catalog Jewelry Arrangements)”, nos. 1-7, (1999-2001)″  will make its public debut at SBMA in their upcoming exhibition, “Heavenly Bodies,” which will be on view February 22 – May 25, 2014. This exhibition, drawn mainly from the permanent collection, will draw upon this strength and focus on images of astronomy. Ranging from the 19th century until today, the photographs in “Heavenly Bodies” address the miraculous universe, seen through the ever-changing lens of photography.

“Viral Codes / Seasonal (Catalog Jewelry Arrangements)” are photographs are of found arrangements of jewelry from consumer mail-order catalogs. The colors and compositions are a result of the seasonal marketing strategies used to sell the objects in the catalogs – a visual invasion parallel to seasonal viruses that invade the body.

We congratulate Penelope on this major milestone.

Allison Schulnik’s MOUND at III Points Festival


Mark Moore Gallery artist Allison Schulnik will screen her most recent animation, MOUND, at The III Points Festival in Miami, followed by a musical set by Austin Paul.  Co-curated by Sean Gelb, The III Points Festival aims to deliver a fully immersive experience in all things technology, music, and art.

From the Miami New Times article “III Points Festival : Ten Artists To Watch“:

Schulnik creatively blends film with sculpted art and painted scenes in order to create a visual spectacle that will leave you wanting more. The images in Mound (2011) might appear strange at first, but you can’t help but form a connection with the moving clay creatures and feel their complex emotions.

Allison’s work will screen at Miami Light Project this Saturday, October 5, from 5 to 6 p.m. in a free show.
