During the month of January 2019, Adelson Cavalier Galleries is proud to present “WOW” – recent works by Federico Uribe for our first time in sunny Florida.
For the past five years, Adelson Galleries has represented Federico Uribe in our New York and Boston locations. We have worked with other galleries and institutions to promote his work around the world. As we began planning to open our new gallery in collaboration with Cavalier Galleries, we had anticipated exhibiting Federico Uribe in his home state, where he has lived for twenty years. Having shown his works at art fairs in Miami and Palm Beach over the past few years, we know that he has a vast and loyal following down here, so we were excited to exhibit him as one of our first solo-exhibitions. Taking advantage of our tall ceilings and generous gallery space, we have curated a show of Uribe’s recent, monumental sculptures and wall pieces.
At the Art Miami fair last month, Federico and I were watching the crowds of art enthusiasts fill into our booth. Upon seeing Federico’s sculptures, almost everyone smiled and took their phone out to snap pictures. The first word that most people seemed to utter, almost impulsively, was “Wow.” After the hundredth time noticing this phenomenon, Federico turned to me and said, “That’s what we’ll title my next show.” I took his joke seriously, because there aren’t many other words in the English language that sincerely describe my enthusiasm towards his creations. I hope seeing the show excites and inspires you as much as the works have for me!
