Discover our Kabinett sector

Get a glimpse of the 16th edition of our Miami Beach show

The Kabinett sector offers 24 concisely curated installations within the booths of the Galleries' and Editions’ sectors, and range from thematic group exhibitions to art-historical showcases to solo presentations.

Highlights this year include a leading work in vanguardist photography in Argentina, the heralded photomontage series “Sueños (Dreams)” by German-Argentinian artist Grete Stern at Jorge Mara - La Ruche. The photomontages illustrate dreams sent in to Idilio magazine (where Stern worked) by readers, and often explore surrealism through a feminist lens.

Upon entering the Kabinett section of the Kalfayan booth, visitors will encounter Greek-Egyptian artist Farida El Gazzar’s bold-colored paintings and black-and-white pencil drawings, the former mounted in vintage frames whose subjects - ordinary objects of daily life - are depicted in the artist’s unique style as symbols of resistance and timelessness.

The kurimanzutto gallery’s Kabinett project will present Haegue Yang’s ongoing paper collage series Trustworthies, a composite of geometric vinyl arrangements, graph paper, and the insides of paper strips torn from bank-issued security envelopes for delivering credit cards and PIN numbers, a kind of camouflage that conceals personal data.

China’s first short story in modern Chinese A Madman’s Diary, written by Lu Xun in 1918, is the source of inspiration for Chinese artist Cheng Ran of the Galerie Urs Meile’s Kabinett presentation. Titled DD-MM-YYYY, this multimedia work consists of three video installations of re-edited video collages in which the author constructs his own narratives about one moment in the history New York, Hong Kong, and Jerusalem.

These are just four of the twenty-four exhibitions to participate in the Kabinett sector in Miami Beach - to see the full list of galleries and artists, click here
