We are delighted to provide this preview of the projects, installations, and new works we'll be presenting this year at SEVEN:

Jennifer Dalton and Willam Powhida are back at it again! Exploring the pecking orders and heirachies of the art world--experienced nowhere as keenly as during the first week of December each year in Miami. This time, Jennifer and William have organized three days of discussions, performances and guaranteed mayhem under the umbrella event titled #rank.

Leslie Thornton's Binocular Series

Legendary experimental filmmaker Leslie Thornton debuts a gorgeous series of single-channel videos. Each work pushes past the more rarified "sublime" in nature with a desire to bring to surface what has been suppressed and outcast. The contraries of beauty and ugliness, like good and evil, come together in a renewed meeting and clash of opposites.

The Chadwick's Genretron

The jewel of Chadwick Manor, The Genretron is a panoramic model built by The Chadwicks in the 19th century for the close study of Dutch landscape painting. Viewing from the central oculus, the Chadwicks used the surrounding diorama to immerse themselves in the physical atmosphere of their favorite landscapists—Hobbema, Ruisdael, Van Goyen, Van der Neer, Van Ostade, and many of the lesser shipwreck artists. This kind of immersion was crucial for their eccentric and little-known treatises on landscape aesthetics and genre painting.

As eminent connoisseurs, sea captains, naval engineers and amateur historians, the Chadwicks amassed one of the great collections of nautical figurines, genre paintings and difficult-to-attribute manuscripts in Western culture. The Chadwicks wrote of seventeenth-century Dutch art as the definitive moment in which landscape painting “vomited up the tyrant Christian landlords” who had until then “monopolized space with their tired stories.”

The reconstruction of the Genretron has been painstakingly overseen by the conservator Jimbo Blachly and the literary historian Lytle Shaw, who are also the editors of the Chadwick Family Archive.

New work and a mind-boggling new installation by Shane Hope

"Fresh off the printer" takes on a whole new meaning in Shane Hope's newest installation. In addition to a selection of gorgeous new prints, several in 3D lenticular formats, Shane will be demonstrating his studio's newest tool: a open-source, hand-built printer that takes images Shane creates on a computer and prints them out in 3D form. Fair enough, you say. But the printer on display is a "child," comprised largely of pieces printed out from its own parent 3D printer, and printing yet another generation of itself, as well as a series of "Grey Goop" wall pieces you just have to see.

New video by Janet Biggs

We're delighted to present a brand new video "Duet" by Janet Biggs, commissioned by the Mint Museum of Art for her current exhibition there titled "VantagePoint IX Janet Biggs: Going to Extremes." In "Duet" Janet focused on NASCAR racing. But as is common with her highly poetic work, rather than focusing exclusively on the drivers, she also shows us the "speed, precision, and agility of the pit crews and reveals their extreme grace under pressure." For more about the exhibition visit the Mint Museum's website here.

We will also be presenting several bodies of new work and major sculptures by Ivin Ballen, Yevgeniy Fiks, Ulrich Gebert, Christopher K. Ho, Mamiko Otsubo, and Andy Yoder.

Bambino, Jay, and I hope to see you there!
