on .

Photography No Rules icon thumb.MIAMI – Curated by Melissa Wallen, Assistant Director -de la Cruz Collection and Ibett Yanez - Ground Control MIA, twenty-two New World School of the Arts college visual arts students will present “No Rule” Rule group exhibition. Emerging from fragmented concepts of identity, labor, spirituality, and our relationship to natural, artificial, and corporeal bodies, new forms take shape via the raw immateriality of memory and resistance. Exploring concepts of ownership and personal history, through the deconstruction of music, language, fetishistic objects, graphics, and materials. “No Rule, Rule” applies strategies of art historical movements of the past, exhibiting an emerging generation of artists keen on playing by their own rules, with one eye on the back of their head.


Opening Reception for “No Rule” Rule is on Thursday, January 25, from 6PM – 9PM. New World Gallery, 25 NE 2nd Street, Miami Florida 33132. Admission to the show is free and it is open to the public. On view January 25 – March 2, 2018.
