Flying Solo

Michael Genovese’s art career began with professional training in sign painting, a skill set that perhaps explains why his work is so technically precise. From his incredible etchings to his hyper-detailed site installations, Genovese’s work somehow combines the improvisational urban spirit of his native Chicago with a mood of thoughtful calculation — in other words, the legs of a b-boy with the head of a professor. His recent fellowship at the Fountainhead residency in Morningside and his participation in “Confection” at Our House West of Wynwood were apparently just the appetizers for the main course, also being served at O.H.W.O.W.: his first solo exhibition in Miami. Delightfully titled “It’s Not the Heat, It’s the Humility,” the show will demonstrate Genovese’s equal comfort with a knife and a bottle of glue as with a paintbrush. New American Paintings and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago have already given Genovese solo love, so Miami is relatively late to the game. Don’t you be late too. Roll by around 8 p.m. this Saturday, and no need to bring cash — the admission and the Grolsch are free.
Sat., June 13, 8 p.m.; Mondays-Fridays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: June 13. Continues through July 25, 2009
