Melissa's Pick
ArtList_2

In her newest series, “Agency,” Cristina Lei Rodriguez​ continues to explore the potential of utilitarian objects in an effort to encourage social interaction​s. Rodriguez’s dense resin furniture and textiles transform the white cube of the gallery into a rich jewel box of vibrant hues and opalescence. Scans of crude tin foil and discarded scraps refracting light emitted from a digital scanner bed cover the walls of the gallery. The illusion mimics gem-toned geodes as rich, sprawling facsimiles. Rodriguez’s work echoes the spirit of the Arte Povera: derelict objects take on an opulent second life, aspiring to bridge the gap between what is considered natural and artificial. Additional programming for “Agency” includes workshops by the artist, a collaboration with Kambui Olujimi and local artists such as Loriel Beltran, Domingo Castillo, and many more. An online component of the exhibition can be viewed at www.agency-miami.com.
