Piotr Uklański: ESL 
 Appropriating the acronym for English as a Second Language, Piotr Uklański’s upcoming exhibition at the Bass Museum of Art will be titled ESL. As Uklański embraces this acronym as a descriptive signifier of his own status as an immigrant not fully integrated into American society, this title also points to his unconventional conceptual and aesthetic art practice, an oeuvre that suggests irreverence towards mainstream art. His exhibition will showcase a precise but eclectic selection of works from his wide-ranging practice, which includes sculpture, painting, photography, performance, and film. Combined with selections from the collection of the Bass Museum of Art, Uklański’s works will address issues related to his ESL status—whether through their outsider relationship to American pop culture, their aspirations over the fabled American Dream, or through Americanized references to Polish history and art. Piotr Uklański: ESL will be on view during Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 with a VIP reception on December 4, 2013 from 9 p.m. to midnight. Special museum hours will be: Thursday, December 5 through Monday, December 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and regular museum hours thereafter. The exhibition runs through March 16, 2014.
