Inspired by NEW WORK MIAMI, MAM’s pseudo biennial of local artists, NEW WORK – BAC takes 22 of the newest, freshest faces of the Bakehouse to showcase what they have masterfully created over the last year. This survey of talent explores the various media and techniques implemented under one roof.
A true hands-on sense of materiality is present with all producing their own work, owning the craft as well as the concepts behind each project. Departures from traditional methods of sculpture are evident with the presence of sex dolls, buttons, packing materials, polygons and eyeballs made from porcelain. Painting is interpreted through sensed portraits and imagined landscapes exploring feelings and forgotten spaces. Swimming pools, the Ocean and vacant urban settings pour through the photographs, inspired by living in Miami. All work was made this year or last, guaranteeing the freshest fresh and newest new BAC has to offer.
Artists include: Amanda Bradley, Gianna Riccardi, Scott Brennan, Martiza Caneca, Bernadette Despujols, Augusto Esquivel, Gabriela Garcia, Nicole Maynard-Sahar, Sean Mick, Aurora Molina, Isabela Muci, Myung Nam An, Rolando Peña, Sandra Ramos, Roberto Mata, Jimena Román, Mary Ellen Scherl, Lauren Shapiro, Alejandra Suarez, Tonya Vegas, and Pedro Wazzan.
