A History of Frogs
Elf House
Opening Saturday, November 12
from 5 – 8PM

Join us for the opening of A History of Frogs’ Elf House, the artist duo’s inaugural solo exhibition following Marta-related outings as part of Under/Over (2020), Built In at the Neutra VDL House (2021), and the gallery’s recent presentation at Frieze Los Angeles (2022). Elf House comprises some thirty-plus works, ranging from palm-sized relics to domestically-scaled furniture objects. The frolicsome opening will be accompanied by a celebratory tipple from artist Ben Sanders, whose cocktail program has seen the gallery through its first three years (and who will be showing new work with Marta in 2023).

Nifemi Marcus-Bello
Winner, Hublot Design Prize 2022
Serpentine Gallery

Lagos, Nigeria-based industrial designer Nifemi Marcus-Bello has been designated the recipient of this year’s Hublot Design Prize. Announced by jury members Hans Ulrich Obrist, Marva Griffin, Alice Rawsthorn, and Samuel Ross (the prize’s 2019 awardee) at the Serpentine Galleries in London, Marcus-Bello was championed for his work in community-centered furniture, product, and spatial design. In early 2023, Marta will host the celebrated designer’s new works in cast bronze, which Marcus-Bello has realized in collaboration with several Benin-based foundries, metalsmiths, and craftspeople.

Minjae Kim
at Nina Johnson
November 28 2022 – January 7 2023

In timed conjunction with Art Basel Miami Beach, Design Miami, Untitled Art, and NADA Miami, Nina Johnson will host several new works by Korean-born, Brooklyn-based artist and furniture-maker Minjae Kim in the gallery’s Charlap Hyman & Herrero-designed Exhibition Library. Among the pieces on view will be Kim’s long-gestating Moon Jars alongside several new works in quilted fiberglass.

Marta

Marta is a gallery that hosts works at the meeting points of art and design. Founded in Los Angeles in 2019, the gallery makes space for artists to experiment with the utility of design, and for designers to explore the occasional abandonment of function. Marta’s curatorial and publication programs take interest in both the process of an object’s creation as well the narrative of its creator(s). Marta embraces the intersection of disciplines, advocates for diversity in design, and promotes access to the arts.
