Earlier this month Natology announced the Austrian art collective Perfekt World's group exhibition Cash Cans & Cocaine, where an installation of confiscated objects examined the juxtaposition of Miami's drug-ridden past and art-infused present. In a scene suggesting the aftermath of a drug raid, Perfekt World finalized their three-month Fountainhead residency with a two day group show featuring the city's most recognized bad asses. Alongside George Sanchez Calderon, Michael Vasquez, Andrew Nigon, Typoe, and Asif Farooq, Natology artist Jessy Nite presented her pill-typography piece Roll Model and white powder line works, Controlled Substances #1-6, conspicuously peeping out of black duffel bags. In a community notorious for its drug war, I propose we redefine Miami's notoriety by buying art not cocaine.
