a young collector’s selection of contemporary works
Curated by Schwanda Rountree
Previously exhibited at Carol Jazzar – Contemporary Art
158 NW 91 Street
Miami, FL 33150
Re-al-ized, curated by collector Schwanda Rountree at Carol Jazzar Contemporary Art in Miami, opens November 23, 2014 and is on view through December 21, 2014. This group exhibition features new works by artists Rountree has been following and/or collecting for several years: Willie Cole, Bethany Collins, Renee Cox, Allison Janae Hamilton, Jefferson Pinder and Shoshanna Weinberger.
Re-al-ized features drawings, photography, video and paintings that tackle relevant and provocative issues of African-American ethnic identity, coming from six distinctive voices. The works are about the energy derived from nature, the power of history, gender and sexuality, the body as an instrument of social critique, the diversity of language, and the transition of traditional forms of expression into the digital realm.
Through Re-al-ized, Rountree engages the vitality of the contemporary art market from her unique position as a young collector. She hopes to influence other young people who wish to build collections by fusing their passions and with awareness of art market trends.
