The Department of Art and Art History in UM’s College of Arts and Sciences will present a solo exhibition by Ralph Provisero. Trinacria will be on view at UM’s Wynwood Project Space, 2200-A NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, from January 8-22, 2011. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, January 8, 2011 from 6 to 10 p.m.

The exhibition features three large-scale works with drawings and models. Using the patches in damaged welding curtains from the school as drawings, Provisero references time and memory, reality and the past. Distilled from these concepts are the models and large-scale works in the exhibit. They represent the formal counterpart, the spatial experience, and the present. Together these nine works unite as an installation of concept and form.

Provisero’s works have been exhibited both nationally and internationally at such venues as the Martin Z. Margulies Collection, the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo Ateneo de Yucatan, the Bass Museum, and Chicago’s Navy Pier. Part of the Lowe Art Museum’s permanent collection, Provisero’s large-scale work “Pietra Veloce” resides on the UM campus.

Wynwood Project Space is open from 6 to 10 p.m. every second Saturday of the month and by appointment. Admission is free.
