    Martin Casuso’s Master of Fine Arts exhibition “of-things-being-what-they-are-not” is on view through June 22 at the University of Miami Gallery at the Wynwood Building, 2750 NW Third Avenue, Suite 4. An opening reception will be held Saturday, June 9 from 2 to 9 p.m.

    Casuso’s work has its origins in mainstream handiwork and hobby, with a deliberate shift from a traditional application of these crafts. His work involves an ongoing exploration of how gender, sexual preference, materials, and processes relate to themes of domesticity. The materials of craft, sometimes made by unseen hands of the past or by the artist himself, are combined with a more industrial palette of hardware supplies or thrift store housewares to make new “old” objects that are not gender specific. They in turn reflect Casuso’s own relationship with domesticity, shifting from being objects of use to objects of contemplation.
