Dec 1st through Dec 5th, 2010.
To launch the 4,500 square-foot space, Retna, Primary Flight will present a fine art solo show by Marquis Lewis. His work has set a standard for the entire medium, much of which can be seen in Miami from Interstate 95 including: a 30-foot-tall man throwing his hands to the sky on the western wall of The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse; a seductive blue angel gracing the corner of 37th and North Miami Avenue; and a little black boy kneeling to the ground in Wynwood, just off 24th Street and west of North Miami Avenue.
Retna returns for Primary Flight’s fourth consecutive year, this time, kicking-off the collective’s home-base with a solo exhibit of paintings, drawings, an installation and an entirely new body of work specific to this occasion. The opening reception is slated for Thursday, December 2 at 7:00 p.m.
Primary Flight is a collaborative curatorial organization dedicated to the production of site-specific, street level, mural installations. Since its inception in 2007, Primary Flight has brought together more than 150 of the world’s most influential artists to install their bodies of work live in the streets of Wynwood, the Design District and greater Miami-Dade. These projects often function as a catalyst for developing arts communities.
