Ohad Meromi: The Working Day / Gallery Diet, Miami

Gallery Diet in Miami’s Wynwood Art District just opened two exhibitions that run concurrently until December 31, 2012: Khasma-izm, a group show organized by Nicolas Lobo, and The Working Day, a solo show with new works by Ohad Meromi. This video provides you with at walkthrough of Meromi’s exhibition on the occasion of the opening reception. Ohad Meromi’s exhibition features geometric and figurative sculptures that form a space-filling installation. In The Working Day, Ohad Meromi deals with the relationship between architecture/installation and the figurative. He explains:

“Grouping a number of figurative works in the gallery space – each treated as a freestanding piece, but thought of together as The Gravediggers – I seek to address issues of class and the distinctions made between the individual and the collective.”

Ohad Meromi was born in 1976 in Israel. He holds an MFA from Columbia University. He has had solo exhibitions at Harris Lieberman, Art in General, Country Club, PS1 Contemporary Art Center, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the israel Museum in Jerusalem. Ohad Meromi currently lives and works in New York.
