IDEOBOX ARTSPACE PRESENTS ARTIST RODRIGO ECHEVERRI IN HIS FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION IN THE UNITED STATES
MIAMI, FL (Wednesday, November 2, 2011) – During the week of Art Basel Miami Beach 2011, Ideobox Artspace, an experimental art space in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District, will present internationally renowned Colombian artist Rodrigo Echeverri in his first solo exhibition in the United States.
On Tuesday, November 29, Ideobox Artspace’s Co-Founders & Directors, Tanya Brillembourg Capriles and Herman Leyba will host an exclusive, enchanting evening for their collectors, VIPs, and special guests to preview Echeverri’s latest collection alongside the recently published catalogue of his life and work titled Astilla en el Ojo (Splinter in the Eye).
Echeverri’s artwork is constructed with various types of mediums from acrylic/oil paints to wood dye on canvas, medium density fiberboard, and wood. With these materials, he creates the illusion of celestial bodies of boxes colliding and floating into larger entities, referring to an idea of chaos linked to moments of crisis and destruction. It is a gesture that paradoxically has been compiled from geometric order. His approach evokes different perspectives of suspended boxes depending on the angle from which they are viewed. His work eliminates the boundary between painting and sculpting as it unilaterally displays two-dimensional and three-dimensional points of view. Echeverri’s interest in texture and form begins with a cube shape that is ordinary, yet he uses colors such as red to create depth and illusion.
The exhibition will continue to be on display throughout the week and during the open-to-the-public event that Ideobox Artspace is hosting along with ZYR Vodka for Pop-Up Piano Miami on Saturday, December 3 from 8:30PM – 11:30PM, where there will be surprise guest performances. Pop-Up Piano Miami is a public arts project where ten pianos customized by different artists will be strategically placed throughout Miami. Additionally, Echeverri was carefully selected by a host committee to participate in the project by designing one of the pianos.
Lastly, Ideobox Artspace will also be hosting an Art Basel recovery party the following Saturday, December 10th during Wynwood’s Second Saturday Art Walk. All ten pianos will be on display and guests will have the opportunity to view Echeverri’s solo exhibition.

You are cordially invited to attend and cover the November 29th private cocktail preview and art installation of Rodrigo Echeverri. Photos of the artist’s works, background information and interview opportunities are available upon request.
