BFI presents the last show in the current location before the area becomes the site of a massive urban development masterplan starting next year to construct the Miami World Center. In this immediate context, the exhibition PĿΛNΞS collaboratively speculates on a possible trajectory for BFI and spaces that share a similar DNA.

Art has persistently prototyped lifestyles, new forms of labour and innovative infrastructures, rapidly changing the ways we live and the cities we live in. The divisions between the places we live in, work in and socially interact in are collapsing at the same time as available and affordable space in the most desirable locations worldwide is constantly shrinking. We have become increasingly nomadic, rooted in globally dispersed networks that are as diverse as they are abstract, based on temporary impact points as crystallizations of otherwise transient moments.

PĿΛNΞS explores hybrid structures that can meet the growing demand for flexibility and mobility. With this show BFI becomes a test site for experimental spatial constellations and an expanded format that can adapt to a variety of situations, contexts and purposes. Throughout December, the invited network of international artists transform BFI into an environment to live, work and exhibit in as collaborative proposal that envisions the spaces we might need to build the future we want to live in.

PĿΛNΞS is a curatorial project by Anna Frost and Annika Kuhlmann, launching with this exhibition at BFI featuring the works from Agatha Wara · Bradford Kessler · Christopher Kulendran Thomas · Clemence de la Tour du Pin · Daniel Iinatti, Dorota Gawęda & Eglė Kulbokaitė · DIS · Edward Shenk · Jaakko Pallasvuo · Jenna Sutela · Joshua Citarella · Kristin Luke / TAIV · Martti Kalliala · New Scenario / Paul Barsch & Tilman Hornig · Peles Empire · Rasmus Høj Mygind · Toke Lykkeberg · Travess Smalley · Zack Davis · featuring LOYAL Gallery showing Brad Troemel, Jesse Greenberg, Jim Thorell, Sandra Vaka Olsen & Zoe Barcza.
