Locust Talks with Lauri Firstenberg

Miami, FL 33127
Locust Talks, a new series of free public lectures by visiting art professionals from diverse institutions across the country have been invited to talk about topics impacting artists and their communities. Following the sold out-SRO presentation by Creative Time’s executive director Anne Pasternak is Lauri Firstenberg, director and chief curator of LAX Art. LAX Art is an independent non-profit art space in LA that produces and presents experimental exhibitions, encourages the conversation on contemporary art in LA and inspires the dynamic relationship between art, artists and audiences.
Complementing the Locust Talks, the visiting curators and directors are making visits to the studios of South Florida-based artists as a personal way to provide artists an outsider’s insight into their work, and an opportunity to develop on- on-one relationships.
“Artists involved in our Artist Advisory Committee have specifically expressed a need for more access to top curators, writers and arts professionals as an avenue to expand their practices and sustain their careers,” relates Ms. Sheldon. “As a result of the studio visits, we hope to broaden Miami artists’ sphere of influence, giving them the opportunity to build new relationships—and ultimately exhibition opportunities, with dynamic curatorial voices from across the country and internationally.”Click here to sign up for the Soul Of Miami email list.
