Jose Dávila | M34
Located in Canal Park, at the North entrance of the Miami Beach Convention Center, at Washington Ave between 20th and 21st streets
Los Límites de lo Posible, 2019
Recinto, volcanic rock, raw sandstone boulders
Originally produced for the Bienal de La Habana 2019, Jose Dávila’s installation for Meridians is comprised of six sculptures composed of recinto, a volcanic rock, and raw sandstone boulders. The interaction between the perfect geometric shapes of the recinto volumes and the capricious forms of the unaltered boulders, reveals a contrast, precariousness and playfulness which is an essential part of Dávila’s sculptural practice. Alternating between tension and rest, fragility and solidity, the material disparity highlights the collaboration between the different elements to achieve permanence and balance.
Wu Chi-Tsung | M18
Cyano-Collage 064, 2019
Cyanotype photography, Xuan paper, acrylic gel
118 1/8 x 236 1/4 inches
Wu Chi-Tsung's Cyano-Collage works explore the relationship between the image, it’s making, and the viewer’s perception. The Cyano-type process was invented in the 19th century to duplicate engineering drawings. Wu Chi-Tsung employs his own contemporary version of this process, by which he manipulates light sensitive cyanotype paper to create images that at a glance resemble traditional Chinese landscapes. Connecting Eastern and Western culture and art, Wu Chi-Tsung integrates traditional aesthetics with his own startling contemporary language.

Joseph Kosuth | Permanent public installation
Located World, 2019
Located World, Miami Beach, is the newest iteration of a series of works that Joseph Kosuth has previously exhibited in Europe and Japan. The installation signifies a sense of place and answer our ‘will to know’ specifically where we are. The work is about how a community defines itself both within and without borders. Configured in geographic relation to the rest of the world, the size of the name of each location is scaled in direct proportion to the distance from Miami Beach; the closer a location is the larger it appears. This ‘map of the world’, consisting of the names of cities and towns, chosen both arbitrarily and purposefully, becomes an alternative global network, reordering geopolitical privilege and prominence by flattening differences to proximity versus distance.
