From Jun 12th through Jul 3rd, 2010.
David Castillo Gallery presents DCG Open, a survey exhibition of sixty-six Miami-based artists. The exhibition includes many of the artists working in Miami for decades as well as many new to the scene. In it, there are dozens of artistic directions and practices. DCG Open, a once-yearly summer show demonstrates that art production in Miami remains at an all-time high. In all of the city’s various periods, there has been one thing that remained a constant in Miami’s culture – an attractive place for artists of all disciplines to create and this, in 2010, remains clearly unabated and undisputed.
The strength and diversity of the artists in DCG Open is massive, impressive, enlightened, and wonderful. Miami has become a place for much discussion regarding the role of the arts, the expansion of private collection museums, and the support of public museums, art fairs, the performing arts center, the university museums and everything in between. But in all this, there can only be one center for culture anywhere in the world and that will always remain the artists and their production.
DCG Open includes paintings, drawings, videos, photographs, sound, prints, fabric, sculptures, and every manner of art production in between. Exhibited artists include Harumi Abe, TJ Ahearn, David Almeida, Luisa Basnuevo, Arlene Berrie, Devin U. Caserta, Rosemarie Chiarlone, Lou Anne Colodny, Xavier Cortada, Cynthia Cruz, Lilliam Cuenca, Madeline Denaro, Reniel Diaz, Valerie Duarte, Marta Dunn, Virginia Fifield, Jason Galbut, Cesar Garcia, Adrienne-Rose Gionta, Michael Glidden, Pedro Gonzalez, Francie Bishop Good, Peter Hammar, Alesh Houdek, Alvaro Ilizarbe, Jose Iraola, Catalina Jaramillo, Bethany Krull, Sinisa Kukec, Pati Layalle, Jordan Massengale, Jillian Mayer, Victor Muniz, Thomas Nolan, Kemi Christina Odulana, Jay Ore, Carl Pascuzzi, Raul Perdomo, Joseriberto Perez, Gabriel E.
