Champion | Opening Reception September 8, 2012 | 7 – 11 PM

In 1482, The Duke of Milan Ludovico il Moro commissioned Leonardo da Vinci to create a horse, a symbol of pride, beauty and victory. When French forces invaded the city the following year, the only surviving model by the master, himself, was lost. It took another five centuries for the project to be realized. In short, great works take time and dedication to bring to life. It is in this indestructable spirit that Primary Projects, Miami’s boldest contemporary art space, introduces its inaugural 2012-2013 season with Champion. This group exhibition which will, for the first time, feature the gallery’s permanent stable of artists.

Ranging in subject matter from zombie-like body parts to cereal-box machine guns, from intricate drawings to multi-layered installation projects, Champion reveals a new breed of young artist: one who defies popular logic and creative convention to produce an aesthetic radiating pure grit and a defiance of conformed behaviors. Primary Projects continues to keep its eyes towards the future of contemporary art in Miami

Exhibiting Artists Include : Andrew Nigon, Christina Pettersson, Edouard Nardon, Autumn Casey, Evan Robarts, Kenton Parker, Asif Farooq, Rebeca Raney, Magnus Sodamin & Alex Sweet
