The Palm Beach Institute Of Contemporary Art Presents:

José Antonio Hernández-Diez

EXCESS: Lucinda Devlin, Jessica Craig-Martin, Daniela Rossell

You Think Im Superficial: Miguel Calderón

September 14-November 17, 2001

The Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art is proud to present José Antonio Hernández-Diez, the first major museum exhibition in the United States of work by this acclaimed Venezuelan artist. The exhibition is organized by the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York and curated by Senior Curator Dan Cameron and Adjunct Curator Gerardo Mosquera. The exhibit opens September 14 and runs through November 17, 2002. PBICA is the first venue of a national tour.

One of the most important Latin American artists of the last decade, Hernández-Diez creates candid, poetic, and at times disturbing and irreverent multi-media installations inspired by the vernacular culture and traditions of his home country.

The PBICA exhibition of Hernández-Diez will include 14 works created between 1991 and 2000, chosen to convey several overlapping conceptual axes that inform his work: technology and the body; marginality and vernacular culture; myth making; and an intimate, spontaneous, and enigmatic use of communication and industrial technologies.

EXCESS: Jessica Craig-Martin, Lucinda Devlin and Daniela Rossell, three photographers whose documentary-style photographs reveal details of our pursuit of pleasure to the point of over-indulgence. Organized by PBICA and curated by Sybillé Canthal and Jody Servon.

You Think Im Superficial, a three-part program that includes twenty-five video and underground film works from the late 60s to the present, many by Latino artists. Collectively, they offer a satirical survey of contemporary culture with exaggerated characters, cheap fashion and rude rock stars. In the PBICA New Media Lounge. Organized by PBICA, curated by Miguel Calderon and Sybillé Canthal.

Housed in a totally renovated 1939 Art Deco movie house on the Main Street of Lake Worth, Florida, the Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art is devoted to the premise that contemporary art is a vital means of understanding the world and todays culture. Since its opening in 2000, PBICA has presented acclaimed exhibitions including, Making Time, BROOKLYN!, Fred Tomaselli, Sue Williams and Video Jam. The ICA has been covered widely in the local and national press, including The New York and Daily News and The Miami Herald.
