Emmett Moore, Human Factory, 2016, Digital Collage

The Bass Museum of Art presents 'bassX: Emmett Moore: Human Factory' - on view in the Bass Museum of Art’s bassX Gallery April 26 through May 29, 2016 --> bassX takes place in a satellite space within the Miami Beach Regional Library, located directly across the street from the Bass Museum at 
227 22nd Street in Miami Beach, Florida 33139.

Emmett Moore creates inventive pieces that combine objects to test the limits of their form and function. Many of his works explore conditions of display. For this exhibition, Moore takes inspiration from the quintessential design manual “Human Dimension and Interior Space” by Julius Pinero and Martin Zelnik. Using standard calculations from the source book as referents for the scale and dimensions of this new body of work, Moore creates a trio of sculptures that challenge and call attention to the human body’s relation to designed forms.

His work has been exhibited institutionally at the RISD Museum, The Frost Art Museum, The Perez Art Museum, Miami, and The Bass Museum of Art. Gallery exhibitions and projects include those at Gallery Diet, where he is represented, Design Miami, Architecture at Large, Primary Projects, Locust Projects, OHWOW, Patrick Parrish Gallery and The Standard Miami.
