“Allan McCollum: Works Since 1969” is American conceptual artist Allan McCollum’s first museum retrospective in the U.S. The exhibition, curated by ICA Miami Artistic Director Alex Gartenfeld and Associate Curator Stephanie Seidel, spans McCollum’s artistic output over the past 50 years and brings together more than 20 series across a range of media. Among the projects are the artist’s “Surrogate Paintings” (1978–ongoing), which consider the meaning of “painting” through an examination of its methods and context, “Over Ten Thousand Individual Works” (1987–ongoing), a large-scale installation of that number of similar, yet unique plaster sculptures, and “The Shapes Project” (2005–ongoing), which aims to generate a unique shape for every person on the planet.
