Chakaia Booker and Dalton Gata at ICA Miami

Perhaps it is the coastal waters, the smooth streets and possibility of year-round biking, or the vibrant contemporary art scene that urges travelers to fill the beaches and hotels of Miami during the winter season. My late October trip south from Atlanta offered all such possibilities. Including a journey to ICA Miami for a look at Dalton Gata’s first solo museum show, Dalton Gata: The Way We’ll Be, and a threedecade survey of Chakaia Booker’s abstracted sculptures and paintings, Chakaia Booker: The Observance. ICA’s Artistic Director, Alex Gartenfield is responsible for curating both shows with the help of Curator Stephanie Seidel for the latter exhibition.
