|Christy Gast will exhibit her burlap sculptures in "Out of Place," her show at Gallery Diet (Photo courtesy of artist).|
174 N.W. 23rd St., Miami, 305-571-2288, Gallerydiet.com
Out of Place, Christy Gast's exhibition if burlap sculptures, is billed as the artist's exploration of "the collision that occurs when two notions regarding studio practice meet." Gast is referring to A Room of One’s Own, Virginia Woolf’s 1929 essay that references a personal space in which to focus without distraction, and The Function of the Studio, a 1971 essay Daniel Buren wrote about releasing artists from their confines. Gast, who typically explores public land and outdoor sites in her exhibitions, created the burlap sculptures in her studio, but based them on assemblages constructed from materials she gathered at Lake Okeechobee and other outdoor sites. Her show runs through May 12 (when the gallery will remain open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.), with a release party for Gast's new book Source from 6-8 p.m. May 11. Check out Arterpillar's story on Gast in the Sun-Sentinel.

Buena Vista Building, 180 N.E. 39th St., Miami, firstname.lastname@example.org
One Size Fits All, a one-night exhibition by 801 Projects that organizers note features "works by contemporary artists whose work in some manner embodies the attitude and character of the music of Frank Zappa. The impetus for arranging this exhibition was taken from Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention's 1975 album by the same name. The album One Size Fits All played a critical role in conceiving this exhibition, serving as a model by which to select work that incorporates a similar aesthetic audacity, humorous surprise, technical virtuosity, and confrontational character as the music. Although the term One Size Fits All may suggest notions of universality, it may also recall the marketing of elastic underwear and other such meanings that are welcome in the context of this exhibition." Featured artists will include Autumn Casey, Bhakti Baxter, Clint Casey, Dino Felipe, DJ Le Spam, Daniel Newman, Gean Moreno, Jenna Balfe, Kevin Arrow, Kool Large, Nicolas Lobo and Upahar David Neiburger, The show runs 7-11 p.m. May 11 and seating is limited, so please RSVP.
