    I Know What You Did Last Summer helped launch the careers of Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. “I Know Whom You Showed Last Summer” (the title of Oehlen’s exhibition) won’t launch anyone’s career, but it may lead Miami gallerygoers to take a closer look at two artists, Albert Oehlen and Malcolm Morley—or at least that’s Clearwater’s plan. Oehlen’s thirty-work survey, spanning 1983 to the present, strategically precedes Morley’s big MoCA show in December. The younger German painter is known for collaborating with more folks than a Vichy bureaucrat (having partnered with, among others, Martin Kippenberger and Jonathan Meese). Clearwater hopes his painterly affection for Morley will emerge in this, his first US survey.
