REGINA REX presents CEMETERIUM
CEMETERIUM is a sculpture garden based on the layout and form of a cemetery that will take place in Miami during the week of art fairs, December 1-7. Featuring work by over thirty artists, CEMETERIUM is a hybrid form that takes inspiration from both art fairs and cemeteries, to create a critical context that celebrates the persistence of objects beyond this one week and beyond an artists lifetime. Each artist was invited to to present an object, installation or performance on a four by eight foot plot within a fifty by fifty foot yard. In a week where there is an astounding number of artworks on display, and a frenzy of events stacked up throughout each day, CEMETERIUM gathers together a group of artists and objects that reflect an awareness of both the artist at work and the artist at rest.
