NADA Miami 2020
NADA M̶i̶a̶m̶i̶ Cole Lu, Bri Williams
The collaboration consists of exhibitions at Et al. in San Francisco, USA & at Syndicate’s new space in Vilnius, Lithuania hosted by Autarkia.
Building on the past collaborations between the galleries, the latest takes place in the context of a dislocated NADA Miami. A sharp contrast to the hub of activity hosted by the sea each winter, the participants are instead separated by thousands of miles, and seeing each portion live is impossible. New drawings/sculptures by Cole Lu reframe the gap through the founding mythologies of interstellar travel, Bri Williams' works turn simultaneously inward half a world apart.
Cole Lu is an artist and writer originally from Taipei and based in New York. Recent exhibitions include Haus Wien, Vienna; The Drawing Center, Deli Gallery (all NY); and Monaco, St Louis. In 2018 Cole was a resident at Triangle Arts Association, and has forthcoming projects at Autoitalia (London), Nir Altman (Munich), & Autarkia (Vilnius).
Bri Williams is an artist who works primarily in sculpture. Willliams’ solo exhibitions include Murmurs, LA; Queer Thoughts, NY, and Interface, Oakland; and group exhibitions at Ochi Projects, Los Angeles; Karma International, Los Angeles; Ramiken Crucible, LA; and Queer Thoughts, Y, among others. Williams will have a solo show at Et al. 2021.
