MiaSci Young Patrons, Art Enthusiasts, Community-at-large
The MiaSci Young Patrons invite you to a happy hour celebrating the launch of Xavier Cortada’s solo exhibit, “90N/90S: North Pole & South Pole Installations,” as they kick off their 2011 season.

Cortada created art at the Earth’s poles to help address environmental issues at every point in between. Sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the New York Foundation for the Art’s sponsored artists program, Cortada placed 24 shoes in a circle around the South and North Poles (in 2007 and 2008, respectively), each shoe serving as a proxy for a person affected by global climate change across 24 time zones. Aside from the shoes, the exhibit features flags that were part of the original installations at opposite ends of the planet, as well as works on paper made by melting Antarctic ice. This is the first time that works from both polar installations are featured as part of one exhibit.

Guests will enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvres and the opportunity to meet Xavier Cortada.
