21 Standout Shows to See during Miami Art Week
By Kaylie Felsberg
After last year’s edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach was canceled due to COVID-19, Miami Art Week is finally back at full capacity beginning next week, with in-person editions of the flagship fair, Art Basel in Miami Beach, as well as Untitled Art Miami Beach and various other satellite fairs. In addition to the flurry of booth-filled venues, this year’s Miami Art Week will also feature a number of equally impressive exhibitions and events. Below, we highlight 21 standout shows taking place throughout Miami during the city’s marquee art week.
Jamilah Sabur, “DADA Holdings”
November 27, 2021–January 8, 2022
For her second solo show at Nina Johnson, “DADA Holdings,” Jamaican artist Jamilah Sabur will present a new suite of paintings, which feature arch-like forms that open to repeated archival images, video stills, and geometric shapes. These surreal works are meant to challenge our understanding of geography and warfare. The exhibition exists in tandem with Sabur’s Bulk Pangaea, a video work tracing the sites of aluminum ore extraction currently on view at Prospect.5 in New Orleans.
Judy Chicago, “Judy Chicago in Glass”
November 30, 2021–January 15, 2022
Nina Johnson will also present new work by the acclaimed feminist artist Judy Chicago. Titled “Judy Chicago in Glass,” the exhibition will debut Chicago’s largest glass work to date, Mortality in Glass. The 2021 piece will be shown alongside drawings and additional work from the artist’s ongoing glass series. Chicago will also premiere Zig Zag (2021), a powder-coated steel rendition of an original minimalist sculpture executed in 1965.
