In the times before we could instantly track a tornado or render adequate hydration levels, water appealed to our experience of life lived along mystical and divine paths. It’s still a subject worth examining, something that artists from the traveling group exhibition, Boil, Toil and Trouble address through notions of ritual, magic and the human medium.

More than forty eminent contemporary artists – from Marina Abramović, Robert Nava and Bruce Nauman to Niki De Saint Phalle, Fawn Rogers and Maya Lin – have participated in the project, populating the sizeable Miami Design District exhibition space with dynamic installations, videos, sculptures, paintings, prints and performance works on view.

Boil, Toil and Trouble features the work of the following artists:

Abraham Cruzvillegas, Alison Blickle, Ana Mendieta, April Gornik, Ariana Papademetropoulos, Armani Howard, Astrid Terrazas, Bony Ramirez, Bruce Nauman, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Chase Hall, Chelsea Culprit, Dalton Gata, David Hammons, Edgar Arceneaux, Fawn Rogers, Frank Walter, Frantz Zephirin, Guadalupe Maravilla, Henry Chapman, Hiba Schahbaz, James Casebere, Jamilah Sabur, Jean Herard Celeur, Jillian Mayer, Julian Charrière, Lezley Saar, Loni Johnson, Marina Abramović, Maya Lin, Michael Ajerman, Myrlande Constant, Naomi Fisher, Nereida Patricia, Nicole Eisenman, Nicolette Mishkan, Niki De Saint Phalle, Paulo Pjota, Radcliffe Bailey, Ricardo Partida, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Robert Nava, Superflex, Torkwase Dyson, Wangechi Mutu, and Yassi Mazandi.

After wrapping up at Art Basel in Miami Beach on December 11, 2022, Boil, Toil and Trouble will next travel to Frieze Los Angeles from February 16-19, 2023 and finally to Expo Chicago from April 13-16, 2023.
