Sprawling Michael Craig-Martin Exhibition Set to Open in Florida
Just north of Vero Beach, Florida, the exclusive coastal community of Windsor is famous for its high-society polo matches, Léon Krier–designed town hall, and lengthy list of amenities. Among them is the Gallery at Windsor, an independent art space that is now in the second year of a curatorial partnership with London’s Royal Academy of Arts.
The latest exhibition opens January 29 and features the work of Irish-born Conceptual artist Michael Craig-Martin, who is known for his deceptively simple yet astonishingly precise renderings of everyday objects. “Everything is made for a purpose,” reflects Craig-Martin. “Artifacts tell the story of the society.” As his most extensive American show to date, “Present Sense” will feature not only paintings and editions but also neon-color steel sculptures dotting the 425-acre grounds.
