Cafeina Wynwood’s Packed Art Basel Line-up
Thursday, Dec. 6, through Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012
Cafeina Wynwood Lounge
297 Northwest 23rd Street
Miami, FL 33127
Cafeina, the chic lounge, art gallery and outdoor garden nestled in the Wynwood Art District, is proud to announce its lineup for Art Basel Miami Beach 2012, featuring its signature blend of art and nightlife including international art exhibitions, the official after party for NYC-based Fountain Art Fair, works by Miguel Paredes, and a roster of burgeoning DJs from around the world.
From Thursday, Dec. 6 through Sunday, Dec. 9, Cafeinaâ€™s Wynwood Exhibition Center gallery will house the â€œThe Extraordinary Five,â€ an international group show featuring mixed media curated by artist Alejandro Mendoza, including works by Tania Marmolejo, cover artist for MIAMI Magazineâ€™s December 2012 issue; Carlos Caballer; Alejandro Mendoza; Angel Ricardo Rios and Aida Tejada. The exhibition will portray artists breaking free from traditional aesthetic signature and cultural molds to showcase the individualâ€™s conceptual works.
“The show presents five artists who have developed a plastic expression without allusion to ethnicity, a conventional visual language of discourse in Latin American art. It has semiotic approach, within an international framework, in which the importance lies not in who we are or where we come from, but in what is proposed aesthetically within the context of Contemporary Art” said Mendoza.
