Franklin Parrasch Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition entitled Phenomenal Process at Art Basel Miami Beach 2011. This show will include select vintage works by artists from Los Angeles, California, created during an era that witnessed unprecedented cultural, social, and political upheaval.

Using a variety of media and scale, this group of artists challenged how viewers receive and perceive the sensation of color. These artists each tracked a course of independence from their East Coast contemporaries by using a distinct and peculiar vocabulary intended to remove material preoccupation from the viewing experience.

Phenomenal Process will allow visitors to traverse the fine line between physical engagement and subliminal cognition, to accelerate and reflect on the material process of one’s surroundings, and to conceptualize color as a nuanced and ever-changing phenomenon.

30 November: first choice, 11a; vernissage, 6-9p
1 December – 3 December: 12 to 8p
4 December: 12 to 6p
