Friedman Benda is pleased to present OrtaMiklos: 6 acts of confinement, the first US solo art exhibition of the French and Danish creative duo. In 6 acts of confinement, OrtaMiklos debuts a new body of modern design work divided into six discrete scenes with each act representing a different emotional response to this current moment in time. I Lobo You is about to give you the inside scoop of it and a list of all the contemporary art pieces featured in it.
“It’s during a moment of lockdown that the mind wants to escape. Perhaps it escapes into forms that appear to be unknown, the same as where we feel our future is going,”says the duo OrtaMiklos about his first art exhibition at Friedman Benda.
The show at the Friedman Benda art gallery will feature collaborations and a curated selection of works with modern artists including Bráulio Amado, Coady Brown, Salomé Chatriot, Sarah Faux, Jānis Melderis and Reginald Sylvester II creating a multidisciplinary modern design experience.

Since many of OrtaMiklos’ ideas begin in guerrilla performances, the additional objects are conceived as props for an intuitive theater of making, utilizing ad hoc sculpting and coloring processes. Through explosively energetic and imaginative objects, OrtaMiklos draw from a wide variety of references, such as body movements and contortion, graffiti, and animation.
