Faena Festival: This Is Not America
December 3-9, 2018
3300-3398 Collins Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33140
All programming is free and open to the public.
Faena Art proudly presents Faena Festival: This Is Not America, an exploration on the multiplicity of cultures across the continent debuting during Miami Art Week from December 3-9, 2018. A new experimental platform, the first-ever Faena Festival is an exploration of “America” as a concept, a myth and a narrative that – at times – has divided us, but ultimately has the power to unify across physical, political and conceptual borders.
Faena Festival: This Is Not America features commissions, installations, videos and performances from a range of incredible artists, including Derrick Adams, Miya Ando, Cecilia Bengolea, Joseph Beuys, Ana Teresa Fernández, Alfredo Jaar, Eugene Jarecki, Isabel Lewis, Boris Mitic, Luna Paiva, George Sánchez-Calderón, Tavares Strachan, Wu Tsang and boychild, Agustina Woodgate and Rev. Houston R. Cypress. The theme of the inaugural Faena Festival, “This Is Not America” is keyed to Miami’s enduring role as a port that welcomes migrants, refugees and tourists across the U.S. and the Americas, and from countries around the world. The festival engages with the multiplicity of communities and cultures and the palimpsest of histories that have created the Americas while responding specifically to Miami as its hemispheric hub.
