Allan McCollum: Works since 1969
Curated by Alex Gartenfeld, Artistic Director, and Stephanie Seidel, Associate Curator.
ICA Miami presents the first US museum retrospective for American artist Allan McCollum. Beginning with the artist’s earliest major works, the exhibition includes a selection of “Bleach Paintings” and “Constructed Paintings” (both begun in 1969). In these rarely seen works, the artist uses common consumer goods (dye, bleach, sailing canvas, caulking) to create large canvases in rhythmic patterns constructed of hundreds of individual parts.

Replicant Stone is a tribute to nature, geometry, and the legacies of Geometric expression. Using the form and effect of Pyrite stone, Replicant Stone considers sculpture as an act of replication. Deeply engaged with the geometric forms of modernism and the mathematics recurring in the world, Ortega proposes a synthesis of manmade and natural forms.

Based on Untitled (1976–78), an important work in ICA Miami’s permanent collection, this presentation features a selection of Nevelson’s assemblages from the 1970s. The sculptures exhibited here, both wall-mounted and freestanding, are made of scraps of wood and furniture—chair legs, a baseball bat, balusters, and a headboard—found on the streets of New York that create intimate portraits of Nevelson’s day-to-day urban context.
Odili Donald Odita: Mamba Negra
Mamba Negra (2019) features a dynamic pattern of interlocking forms that evokes the rhythmic movement of dancing bodies or the skin of the sub-Saharan black mamba snake. The inspiration for and title of the work comes from a dance collective popular in São Paulo’s vibrant and political electronic music scene.
