A nomadic and fluctuating entity which works site and time specific on creating exhibitions. The works are usually touching upon the themes of alchemy, mythology and transformation. LOCUS has exhibited nationally and internationally in cities such as New York, Oslo, Trondheim and Stavanger. Upcoming projects will take place in St. Petersburg, New York, Miami and Stamsund.
Announcing the launch of X Contemporary, a new art fair to debut during Art Basel Miami Beach 2015. Under the direction of Matthew Eck, X Contemporary will focus on presenting exhibitors with a strong program of work by emerging and mid-career artists. The inaugural edition of X Contemporary will take place December 1-6, 2015 with a vernissage for VIP guests and press on December 1st, from 5 to 10 p.m.
I see this as a great moment to unite the aspects of creative culture that are increasingly relevant to contemporary art: fashion, performance, music and design. Art doesn’t happen in a vacuum, and X Contemporary aims to present this overlap through dynamic events and collaborations, and within a curated context that prominently features some of the most exciting new galleries and artists today.
