Our Jet Setters are in Miami this week on mass for the opening “Chained to a Creature of a Different Kingdom” at David Castillo Gallery. Curated by our very own West Coast Editor, Annie Wharton, the exhibition includes works by Skip Arnold, Angela Dufresne, aaron GM, Kate Gilmore, Ann Hamilton, Micol Hebron, Dawn Kasper, Susan Lee-Chun, Marilyn Minter, Shana Moulton, Ali Prosch, Yvonne Rainer, Pipilotti Rist, Jimmy Joe Roche, and Mark Verabioff.

Gallery says: “An exhibition of corporeal, temporal works, the idea of Chained to a Creature of a Different Kingdom was fueled both by a recent conflagration of performances and performative video works being made, and a dearth of international video exhibitions. From humorous to political to surreal to physical, [...] many of the body-based, time-based works within the exhibition beautifully straddle the creative line between madness/”illness” and brilliance.

Also in Miami tonight, events that we will likely be visiting with a view to discuss include: Psychic Youth’s “TRI“, the first installment in the project room of the newly opened De La Cruz Collection (23 NE 41st St.); Dead Dads Club Corporation’s “Final Performance” and Zach Balber’s “My Americans“at Spinello Gallery (155 NE 38th St.); Jay Hines’ “Aint No Dispute’n The Rasputin” at Dimensions Variable (171 Ne 38th St.); Drew Heitzler’s “The World is Yours” at Locust Projects (155 Ne 38th St.); Noah Sheldon’s “Miami, Miami” at Bas Fisher Invitational (180 NE 39th St.); Nick Klein’s “O Mio Babbino Caro/ Toomus Meremereh Nor Good” the inaugural exhibition at CMG Projects (40 NE 29th St.) – a newly redeveloped project space of Christopher Miro Gallery; SunTek Chung’s “10 Years” at Charest-Weinberg Gallery (Space 408, 250 NW 23rd St.); Martin Murphy’s “Don’t Forget To Crash” and Elizabeth Condon’s “Walkabout” at Dorsch Gallery (151 Northwest 24th St.); and Diego Singh’s “Pathological Liar/Stalker” at Fredric Snitzer Gallery (2247 NW 1st Pl.).

And that’s just a slice!
