ANNOUNCED: Infinite Space, A Retrospective by Refik Anadol 

ARTECHOUSE Miami To Bring Wildly Popular Immersive Exhibition of  Infinity Rooms to South Florida This October 

MIAMI BEACH, FL (July 23, 2019) ARTECHOUSE / Miami, the second permanent location of the leading digital art presenter in the United States, will bring Refik Anadol’s exhibition Infinite Space to Miami Beach this October following its massively successful run in Washington, D.C. 

The exhibition is the first major retrospective from the Los Angeles-based, Turkish-born artist Refik Anadol. The exhibition opens to the public on October 5, 2019 and will run through Spring of 2020. It features Anadol’s world-renowned immersive installation “Infinity Room,” which has been seen by more than two million people, as well as a selection of other multimedia works spanning his diverse career. 

“The Infinite Space collection represents an opportunity for visitors to challenge their conventional experiences of time and space,” notes Anadol. “In my work, I passionately explore the synergies between human creativity and machine intelligence, resulting in a dramatic rethinking of how we interact, and how we perceive our physical world. By harnessing this creative potential that machines offer, we can enhance our own cognitive capacities and expand the possibilities of architecture, technology and art.”

The great eighteenth-century English artist William Blake famously said, “if the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is – infinite.” Infinite Space is a collection of works that revisit Blake’s statement, as it seeks to cleanse the doors of perception with the tools available to twenty-first-century artists. The exhibition explores memories and dreams through the mind of a machine, using data sets ranging from human memories, photographs of Mars, cultural archives and sea surface activity as the basis for data sculptures and paintings. 

Infinite Space will open for an exclusive press preview on October 3, 2019, VIP early access on October 4, 2019 and will be on view daily to the public starting on October 5, 2019. Invite to follow.
