Paloma Izquierdo's Social Instruments
October 16 – December 18, 2021
Social Instruments is an elongated book cart featuring objects activated by artist Paloma Izquierdo and inspired by items from the Miami-Dade Public Library System's historical collection. Her recent works perform, expand, or manipulate time. Through repetition, her sculptures recreate dance, movement, and rhythm by making social actions mechanical.
The installation will be displayed in different areas of the library for specified time periods:
November 1 – 13
Second Floor, Special Collections Exhibit Area
November 15 – 24
First Floor, Main Library Lobby
November 29 – December 18
Second Floor, Language Section
Works by Paloma Izquierdo will also be featured in the group exhibition Common Space from October 20, 2021 – January 23, 2022, at Oolite Arts, 924 Lincoln Road, Second Floor, Miami Beach, FL 33139.
The Vasari Project is supported in part through a grant from the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs.
Social Instruments is made possible with support from Oolite Arts.
