Emmett Moore: Tumbling Barrel

May 2nd - May 2nd, 2017

Nina Johnson is pleased to announce a new sculptural project by Emmett Moore presented at 212 Window, New York. Moore presents a continuation of his series of sculptures investigating the awning as an architectural unit. The sculpture, scaled specifically to the window proportions, isn’t designed to fit over the storefront but instead to sit inside of it.

212 Window is a project space located in the storefront window of 212 Forsyth Street in New York’s Lower East Side in the studio of renowned architecture firm ArandaLasch. Galleries, designers, architects, artists, and thinkers are invited to exhibit in the window to take part in the neighborhood as a dedicated street presence to the design and creative community.

Emmett Moore is a Miami-based designer and sculptor represented by Nina Johnson. His work has been shown institutionally at the RISD Museum, the Frost Art Museum, the Miami Art Museum, and the Bass Museum of Art. In 2014, he was the first Miami-based designer to exhibit a solo project at Design Miami. Gallery shows and projects include those at Locust Projects, Miami; Patrick Parrish Gallery, New York; and Moran Bondaroff, Los Angeles. He received his BFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design.

Nina Johnson is a contemporary art space in Miami, Florida. Opened as Gallery Diet in 2007, the gallery has produced exhibitions by emerging and established artists from around the world
