The latest exhibition of College of Architecture + The Arts alumnus Michael Rodriguez (BFA ’89), Recent Work, will open on September 19th at 6th Street Container with a reception from 7PM to 10 pm.
A native of Miami, FL, Rodriguez moved to New York City after graduating from FIU, where he received an MFA from Brooklyn College and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He is a recipient of a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant for painting, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship for painting, and a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant.
According to the Wall Street International, Rodriguez’ work “is rooted in his interest in geometric and gestural abstraction as well as process. He is engaged in the process of making the work as in ‘process based art’ as well as a ‘pictured’ process. The work is an aggregate of simple[,] almost mechanical marks and gestures[,] each meant as both signifiers for multiple modes of abstraction and the pictorial simultaneously. To think of the work is to think about process twice.” (Source: Wall Street International).
Recent Work will run from September 19th to October 12th at 6th Street Container: 1155 (rear) SW 6th Street, Miami, FL, 33130. For more information, please contact 6th Street Miami at (786) 587-5279 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
