Narcico Rodriguez: An Exercise in Minimalism
On View Oct. 9, 2016 – Jan. 8, 2017
“As a first-generation immigrant who impacts our contemporary culture globally, Narciso personifies the American dream. Like a master sculptor or painter, he finds inspiration in the world around him to create an artistic continuum of ideas that are the underpinning of his life’s work.” ~ Dr. Jordana Pomeroy, Director of the Frost Museum.
Headlining the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum’s Art Basel Season for 2016, Narciso Rodriguez: An Exercise in Minimalism will feature designs by Cuban-American fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez as well as never-before-seen archival materials, original sketches, video and works of art, selected by the designer to showcase the influence of the visual arts on his creations.
Co-curated by Alex Gonzalez, the Creative Director of ELLE Magazine and Klaudio Rodriguez, the Curator of the Frost Art Museum, the exhibition opens with a private reception on Saturday, October 8 as well as an event on Sunday, October 9 that is free and open to the public (and will remain on view through January 8, including the week of Art Basel Miami Beach).
The Frost Art Museum is also partnering with ELLE on both the exhibition and the opening night event.
“I am honored to be asked to be part of the celebrated history of exhibitions presented by the Frost Art Museum FIU — and particularly excited to do so during Art Basel Season in Miami,” said Narciso Rodriguez.
