Cristina Lei Rodriguez in group show “GOLD”, at Bass Museum of Art, Miami

August 8, 2014 – January 11, 2015

Bass Museum of Art
2100 Collins Avenue,
Miami Beach,  FL 33139 

In 1961 the conceptual artist Piero Manzoni rattled the art world by canning his own feces and making them available for sale, pricing the cans by their weight in exchange for the current value of gold. The following year, in which the Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe dies, Andy Warhol screened the image of the starlet over painted canvases, including golden ones, immortalizing Monroe and establishing her image as one of the most recognized artworks in the world. In 1964, the cult classic film Goldfinger was released and became one of the most iconic James Bond films ever made. The movie unambiguously associated gold with power, glamour but also danger. In parallel, archeological gold was also finding its way into the culture of the masses: from 1961 to 1981 Tutankhamen Treasures and The Treasures of Tutankhamun toured North America and the western hemisphere for the first time, becoming some of the most attended museum exhibits to this day.
Presented in conjunction with the Bass Museum of Art’s 50th anniversary GOLD includes painting, sculpture, video, photography, and installation.

Cristina Lei Rodriguez: Through Excess and Ruin at Team Gallery, SoHo, NY

November 3rd – December 23rd 2011

team (gallery, inc.)

47 Wooster Street
ny ny 10013

Cristina Lei Rodriguez’s sculptural forms are abstract objects that echo the coupled narratives of decadence and ruin. Although the natural processes of growth and decay have been the operative thematic in all of her work, lately the artist has veered away from nature and towards cultural constructions of uncertainty and instability. In her latest pieces, the materials are shaped with critical attention to the extensive gluttony and unapologetic glamour that accompany contemporary capitalism: the consolidated accumulations of wealth, the global economic recession, the persistent fluctuation of value, and the threats of total systemic collapse.

Forever. Cristina Lei Rodriguez at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood

by Anne Tschida

Miami Art Guide Magazine 28
Apr/May 2011

The main hall at the Arts and Culture Center of Hollywood has been transformed into an arboretum of sorts, though the plants and flowers aren’t actually growing. In fact they are all the seedlings of Cristina Lei Rodriguez, whose work most art lovers in Miami should recognize. Since her first solo show back in 2003 at the now defunct Rocket Projects, through her shows at the also shuttered Galerie Perrotin, to Art Basel Miami Beach, to her current local home at Fred Snitzer, Lei Rodriguez’s unique sculptures stand out from the crowd.
