The Station Project in Miami

The Station, co-curated by Shamim M. Momin and Nate Lowman (Mary-Kate Olsen's bf), was a temporary exhibition of new, commissioned and site-specific works by celebrity artists. Presented in a newly-constructed commercial building in the thick of the art fair activity, The Station lured passers by into its 3 floors of gallery space with its cool neon signage. According to the press release, "the selection of works, while not thematic, will be in dialogue with the transitional sensibility of the space, variously investigating architecture and urban landscape, intersections between public and private, notions of design as constructed lifestyle, and, above all, the sense of “in-betweeness” so fleetingly embodied by the exhibition spaces they will occupy." This is maybe best embodied by Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe's meth lab installation, deceptively hidden on the third floor.
