One of my favorites, the Jenkins Johnson Gallery , will be at Art Basel Miami Beach, Galleries Sector November 29 – December 3, 2022 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Booth G8.
Presenting both established and mid-career artists who explore social and political issues by connecting past and current moments, this year’s lineup includes works by: Mary Lovelace O’Neal, Gordon Parks, Aubrey Williams, Jae and Wadsworth Jarrell, Ming Smith, Kevin Cole, Lisa Corrine Davis, Enrico Riley, along with emerging artists Patrick Alston, Alex Jackson, and Raelis Vasquez.
Also located within the booth will be their Aubrey Williams Kabinett presentation:
Aubrey Williams (1926 Guyana – 1990 London), is a key figure of Post-War painting in Britain, and a founding member of the Caribbean Artists Movement. Williams uses abstraction as a cross-cultural translation drawing on his transatlantic presence (time in Guyana, the Caribbean, Florida, and London). His paintings unite references ranging from astronomy, ecology, pre-Columbian iconography, and music. In Kabinett works presented will be from the 1960s-1980s when he traveled the Atlantic, and from his iconic series Olmec-Maya and Now (1982-1987). His work was the focal point of Tate Britain’s recent exhibition Life Between Islands: Caribbean-British Art 1950s-Now.
