Fountainhead announces the inaugural edition of Artists Open, the first ever Miami-Dade County-wide open studios day. Initiated by Fountainhead and supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, 16 artists complexes and over 225 artists will open their studios to the public May 11, 2019 from 11am to 6pm.

With the support of Knight Foundation, The Fountainhead will host a countywide open studio event in Miami-Dade county, the first of its kind. The Fountainhead is on a mission to unite artists and raise awareness of the vast, incredible talent right here in our own backyard.

On Saturday, May 11, 2019, from 11am to 6pm, 16 art studio complexes and studio communities, and artist’s studios within close proximity, will open their doors to the public. Over 225 artists are participating. The Fountainhead has been thorough in connecting with as many art studio complexes as possible for the big event. To keep navigation easy, we have focused on complexes and clusters of artist’s communities and studios. Complexes and communities, listed north to south, include; Bridge Red Art Complex, 8365 Studios, Fountainhead Studios, Visual Art Group, the Milk District, The Collective 62, Laundromat Art Space, ArtHood 56, Bakehouse Art Complex, 27/20 Studios, Oolite Arts (Miami Beach), Mana Contemporary 777, Void Projects, 4700 @ Bird Road Arts District and Deering Estate. Dimensions Variable is hosting their grand opening that night and will be open from 6 to 10pm ONLY.

Kathryn Mikesell, Co-founder and Executive Director of Fountainhead believes, “intimate access to artists and art opens people’s minds to the value of diversity and fosters dialogue, creating a more tolerant, engaged and inspired world. To have a voice, artists need a sustainable career. To be heard and to affect change, artists need a broad audience.”

Because many of the studios are not generally open to the public, information regarding ADA accessibility, parking and nearby public transportation is being provided for each location via the website.

As a green initiative we will not be distributing printed information or flyers. We will be providing a comprehensive map via the website, www.artistsopen.miami linking all complexes and artists and well as utilizing social media and communication platforms.

Many artists will have works available for sale in their studios.

For press inquiries, contact Kathryn Mikesell, Foundress and Executive Director at kathryn@fountainheadresidency.com.

While NFTs have dominated the discourse around art this year, everything about them feels opaque. How to obtain, define, and conserve NFTs are still confusing matters for many. To get to the bottom of things PAMM’s Director of Digital Engagement will moderate a panel with artist Sofia Crespo, curator Dr. Tina Rivers Ryan, and Art Blocks CCO Jeff Davis. The panel will discuss how NFTs have changed the practice of digital art, where NFTs sit in the broader tradition of digital art, and where this all might beheaded.

Hidden secrets revealed by Barry Fellman’s Mangrove Coast photos will be on view in an invited installation at this year’s Art Miami Fair. Open free to the public during Miami Art Week, new photos from this multi-year project will be presented in a specially designed shipping container at the entrance of Art Miami. The installation, part of the Deep See project, will invite viewers into an immersive water focused experience. 
 
Felllman’s images seduce you, inviting you closer to understand them.  As you approach they clarify into familiar forms of sea grasses and shells, while basic notions of scale and distance remain a mystery until your nose is nearly pressed against the photograph. You then realize you are looking at a wondrous and fantastic view of the shoreline, full of secrets and mysteries.
 
The mangrove ecosystem provides shoreline protection and serves as the economic base for the recreational and commercial activities that have made South Florida prosper.  It recycles nutrients and is the breeding and feeding grounds for hundreds of species, nurturing a wide range of marine life, amphibians, birds, and mammals. 
 
Mangrove Coast at Art Miami is one of four invited components of the Deep See project highlighting awareness about climate change, sea level rise and marine conservation.

How Deep Is The Ocean?

Modern Self-Discovery at Miami River Art Fair
December 3-5, 2018

Art Basel Miami Beach is one of the world’s most successful art events, which takes place at the same time as numerous satellite art fairs in the first week of December. In the heart of Miami Downtown, just a few Metromover stops away from the new Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Miami River Art Fair reflects the urban landscape of Miami and responds to the city’s rapid growth as a cultural destination.

One of the exhibitors at Miami River Art Fair Dr. Barbara Aust-Wegemund, Director at Gallery AHC Projects (booth B1), is invited to curate the group show “How Deep is The Ocean?” Modern self-discovery in Philosophy and Arts. A curated group show with Pioneer Artists. About her concept and intention, the curator and art historian explains:

“The Romantic natural philosophers interpreted the sea as a source of life, continuing in the creation of modern criteria of ethical behavior, which culminates in a new bio-ethics and a new understanding of the sea. The curated exhibition is asking “How deep in the Ocean?” as a philosophical question. Ocean Philosophy delves into aesthetics – the sea as the symbol of the sublime – and modern self-discovery – the sea as a mirror of the soul. The exhibition invites to explore connections between Romantic and Modernity, real and (inner) journeys, identity, infinity and space.

Celebrating international emerging and established artists in Miami, the juried show presents original artworks by Louis Atelouis, Tracy L. Barwick, Khalilah Birdsong, Carole Kohler, Marianna Kupriyanova, KanKan Ramos-Lim, Claudia Mini and Sal Sidner.

Meet featured artist Elizabeth Sutton and see her solo show, Just Breathe, in the Schwartz-Jacobs Family Gallery at the Miami Beach JCC. The preview will be on Tuesday, December 3 from 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM. The exhibition will be on display from December 3, 2019 through January 24, 2020.

Many works of art betray the hand of the artist. Elizabeth Sutton’s work, however, tells of the mind of the artist. Her compositional signature is a strong undercurrent of mathematical proportions and algorithmic color placement. Nothing is accidental; everything is intuitive. And with a nod to pop and a dash of kitsch, Sutton creates compositions that are focused on enlivening spaces and uplifting spirits. Sutton believes that her compositions find engaging the viewer with organizational complexity while simultaneously entertaining with whimsy.

Elizabeth Sutton is a millennial “mom-preneur” and visual artist who has taken the nouveau arts scene by storm. In 2016, Elizabeth was selected to participate in the NYDesigns incubator program, exhibited at both the A­ffordable Art Fair & Hamptons Designer Showhouse, and was featured by Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing,” as well as The New York Post. In 2018, Sutton partnered with Joe & The Juice in locations across New York City, in support of The Art of Elysium. Elizabeth’s tile collection for Tilebar is a two-time award collection, from Architectural Digest and HD Expo. Elizabeth recently released her first leather collection, announced exclusive partnerships with the luxury resort, Eden Rock – St Barths and Janovic, the NYC-based Paint & Decorating Center along with launching her lifestyle blog.

A discussion on the necessity of love as a unifying force in our communities and in our world will be the central theme of the next AFRIKIN® Talks. There is a need for an exchange — discussion that crosses boundaries and utilizes a new vocabulary on the importance of strengthening ourselves, our families and our communities on the basis of love — Universal Love is The Way Forward. The faces of our planet now reveal amalgams of ethnicities that reflect our indigenous past and expanding future as seen in the rise of such modern cultures as Afro-LatinX … 

AFRIKIN® Talks’ Art of Conversation brings together speakers that reverberate the voices of previous leaders who faced historical turning points in their struggle for equal rights, love, justice, respect and unity.  Family members of Marcus Garvey, Kwame Nkrumah and Haile Selassie step forward into the present with other innovators and thinkers for the artful introduction of this new dialogue at this crucial time in human history when divisions must be removed for those making an effort to survive and proceed onward.  

Our way forward now begins as we gather to contemplate the rebuilding of not only one Africa, the communities of the African Diaspora but the entire human family. Bob Marley sang, poignantly in his plead for mankind to have “One love, one heart, let’s get together and feel alright”.

We must remain in service to humanity. This event honors and pays respect to all of us — our families and those who came before us — bringing us all together at a milestone in the journey toward the future -– from “tears to triumph,” We invite you to an artful introduction to a shift in reality during Miami Art Week / Art Basel for AFRIKIN® Talks’ – Art of Conversation.

MOAD MDC will present Alternative Facts, an interactive public performance by Paul Ramírez Jonas that explores the concept that truth is a social contract. Over the course of two days in two different parts of the city, the artist will engage individual members of the public in a series of actions that call into question commonly understood ideas about facts, authority, exchange, value, and trust.

For Alternative Facts, Ramírez Jonas will set up notary stations in public locations. For several hours each day, he will invite passersby to participate in a simple exchange in which they sit at the table and make an untruthful statement. Through a brief but elaborate process, the artist will notarize each statement as a testament to its truthfulness. The participants are then asked to pay for the service with a gold coin, which is made by the artist electroplating their spare change in a gold solution. The exchange results in two drawings: one for the participant to keep and another to be displayed near the notary station.

About Taylor:

Taylor Cavazos is a Mexican American artist born along the southernmost border of the United States in Harlingen, Texas. She is most known for her colorful, detailed, and symbolic Mexican-American paintings. After moving to Miami in early 2018, Taylor produced her collection of acrylic-on-canvas art pieces, focused on Mexico’s representation of the calavera (skull), Dia de Los Muertos and “Fridamania,” referring to the growing celebrity status of famed Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.

Taylor Cavazos Art also has a larger purpose. Living with anxiety, Taylor finds solace in painting repetitive “dots and swirl” patterns on her canvas. “It helps me clear my mind,” she explains.

“Sometimes, hours pass without me noticing. I block out all unnecessary thoughts and truly relax when I’m painting these patterns.” Taylor hopes her unique take on Latinx art will serve as a platform to discuss the prevalence of mental health issues among Latinx and Hispanic American populations.

The Confidante Miami Beach, a playful oceanfront oasis in Miami’s mid-beach neighborhood, continues to be a hub for the latest artwork in Miami with its rotating solo art exhibit joined by contemporary street artist and muralist Skott Marsi. The rotating exhibit, which kicked off during the renowned Art Basel in November 2017 and reimagined every eight weeks with a new artist, is one of many curated, unique activities put on by The Confidante for guests and visitors to enjoy.

The rotating art exhibit has debuted a series of diverse, impressive Miami-based artists including Ivan Roque, Claude Charlier, Sam Dobrow and Nestor Arenas. On August 6, Skott will showcase his exhibit “Controlled Chaos” that encompasses abstract, realism paintings.

Raised in Long Island, New York, Skott Marsi is a street artist and muralist. He attended Queens University of Charlotte and studied Graphic Design and Digital Communications. When creating his pieces, Skott draws inspiration from Picasso, Jackson Pollock and Banksy. His work has appeared in galleries across the world – New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Amsterdam, London, Spain, Greece and Milan – and he attains international recognition as a top contemporary street artist. Skott’s installation at The Confidante fuses spray cans and paint to create bold, abstract-colored images to convey modern day pop culture. The artwork draws inspiration based off his Miami experiences. Moving to Miami in 2011, Art Basel opened up his eyes to the Wynwood Arts District and the endless opportunities for artists alike. The installation reflects his experiences throughout these last seven years of living and working in Miami, inspiration from the local community and the artists that he has connected and collaborated with.

The rotating art exhibit, located on the south side end of the hotel’s lobby, is complimentary to hotel guests and visitors.

Yué is the name of all the women who ever invest and occupy with their body a piece of public space: in this case, PAMM’s waterfront. Myriam Soulanges and Anne Meyer found the bodies and gestures of Yué thanks to stories of women they met during residencies in French Guiana and Guadeloupe. Those stories are now shared with other women from the Caribbean and from Miami. Myriam Soulanges and Anne Meyer show a work of feminine/artistic engagement in a tormented context of social movements and climate change. Hurricanes Irma and Maria have also influenced Yué#sorority, and later on visual artist Guy Gabon joined the project. Forced migrations increase women’s vulnerability and exacerbates inequalities. They need our attention today. The choreographic thread of Yué#Sorority is reconstructed in Miami with volunteer performers who have been meeting up for two weeks in Little Haiti Cultural Center in Little Haiti and the Koubek Center in Little Havana during dance and sewing workshops with the artists.

Through the Hat: The Art of Steve Marcus 3/6/19

Through the Hat: The Art of Steve Marcus
Wednesday, 03/06/2019 – 07:00 pm – 09:00 pm
Jewish Museum
301 Washington Ave.,
Miami, Florida 33139
Website
Cost: Free

Introducing a new solo exhibition by internationally acclaimed artist, Steve Marcus, titled Through The Hat: The Art of Steve Marcus. Steve Marcus has been a consistent trailblazer in both mainstream and underground cultures. The exhibition is accompanied by photos of the artist at work by legendary photographer Sid Kaplan (of “Vanishing New York” fame). The exhibition opens March 6, 2019 and runs through May 21, 2019. 
Through The Hat includes more than 26 wood-carved sculptures and Jewish ritual objects, more than a dozen hand-drawn works, and custom synagogue furniture. Marcus seamlessly weaves his Proustian childhood memories of the culinary tastes of Jewish New York with his personal journey and passion for his own roots and culture. In his book he asks, “Did I get so involved in something else that I missed the disappearance of a city that was my foundation and helped mold my Jewish identity? I would come home and make artwork inspired from studying the Mish-na, Gemara, Chumash, and wonder about a vanishing community that melded with my distant memories.” In Through the Hat, Marcus has created a folk/cartoon world that is the Kosher cousin of those created by artists Alexander Calder and Red Grooms. His beautifully crafted renditions of Jewish life in New York City celebrate a culture of orthodoxy and unorthodoxy in all their splendor. 
Regarding this art show, Marcus states, “My current body of work expresses my own roots and culture and proudly contains Jewish values, experiences, and perspectives as a celebration of authenticity. The artwork is not just a creative declaration of my own identity and beliefs, but also created to inspire all people to celebrate and explore their own true identities. My work is the manifestation of a creative rebellion of expression that smashes falsehood and hatred. The quest for the truth will lead to oneness.” 
Regarding art today, Steven says “In the era of globalization, the ugliness of cultural appropriation has become rampant, as various outside cultures are now easily accessible with the assistance of the Internet and social media platforms. The digital age specter of colonialism, imperialism, and social Darwinism disseminates information and imagery at a dystopian pace. These digital platforms socially engineer the world’s population with homogenized source materials and value systems with extreme prejudice, and an unending flow of content feeds the world’s appetite for conflict and entertainment, offering a variety of consumer identities recognizable the world over. Consumers hijack distant cultures’ attitudes and style cues to mold themselves into the hipster approximations of cultures they have never experienced firsthand. This form of imitation is the stylistic manifestation of colonial imperialism, and is helping to pave a bland and blind path toward a global monoculture. The greatest existential threat to the Jewish people is the Jewish people themselves. The apologetic and sometimes dismissive attitude Jews have about being Jewish has left most Jewish artists and institutions struggling through a postmodern identity crisis. They’ve abandoned so much of their own intrinsic identity, cowering under the threats of the BDS movement, anti-Israel sentiment, and hipster ideology, and now live an unsustainable fantasy, creating art that begs for acceptance from their own tormentors.”
More About Steve Marcus: Marcus (aka smarcus) has received honors and awards from the American Society of Illustrators; has several works in the permanent collection of the Oakland Museum of Art in California, as well as in private art collections worldwide; and has collaborated with Allen Ginsberg, Ken Kesey, Timothy Leary, The Norman Mailer and Miguel Pinero Estates, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. His work has been featured in High Times Magazine and the Cannabis Cup, New York Times, MTV, The Tibetan Freedom Concerts, The Source, Conde Nast Publications, Esquire and posters for the world famous Fillmore in San Francisco. 
The Jewish Museum of Florida- JMOF FIU’s first exhibition after renovations of their main gallery will be Through The Hat: The Art of Steve Marcus. JMOF-FIU is the only museum dedicated to telling the story of more than 250 years of Florida’s Jewish history with a growing collection of more than 100,000 items.  
LOCATION AND HOURS: The Jewish Museum of Florida: 301 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida, 33139. Phone: 305-672-5044. Open Tuesday-Sunday from 10am-5pm, closed Mondays and holidays.

WHO:
BACARDÍ and The Dean Collection present No Commission: Miami from December 6 – 7, 2018

WHAT:
The Dean Collection and BACARDÍ present No Commission: Miami 2018, a two-day, art and music fair taking place December 6 – 7, 2018, at Faena Forum in Miami Beach. No Commission was created by BACARDÍ and The Dean Collection to forge a direct link between art and art patronage. No Commission is designed specifically to support artists in different territories around the world.

No Commission: Miami 2018 is themed, “Take the Shot,” which will focus primarily on the medium of photography. As visual communication dominates, picture taking has eclipsed other expressive forms of content capture as an important tool of contemporary storytelling, heightened further by social media. No Commission 2018 examines photography in the digital age by highlighting practitioners who have emerged as compelling narrators of our time.

This year, No Commission invited photographers from around the country to submit their work for consideration. Of those who submitted, a select group of emerging artists and their work have been chosen to showcase at “Take the Shot” come December.

The injection of immersive music performances from collaborator BACARDÍ shakes up the traditional art fair, creating a unique cultural experience for visitors. While we can’t share names yet for the upcoming iteration, past performers have included Alicia Keys, DJ Khaled, A$AP Rocky, Cardi B, Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Pusha T and more.

No Commission Miami is the seventh in a series of artist support collaborations. Past editions were held in Miami, New York, London, Shanghai and Berlin where artworks were sold and artists retained 100% of sales proceeds. The No Commission platform is realized through a partnership between BACARDÍ, Swizz Beatz, and The Dean Collection in their continued support of cultural visionaries around the world.

About BACARDÍ Rums
In 1862, Bacardi revolutionized the spirits industry when founder Don Facundo Bacardí Massó began producing his remarkable light-bodied, smooth rum.

BACARDÍ Superior rum has won more than 750 awards for quality and taste making it the world’s most awarded rum.

Different personalities and backgrounds clash, as these young women navigate the bumpy terrain of being a teenager living in America today.

Cost: $40 per car

Stage Mother, a new comedy-drama starring Oscar-nominated Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook, Animal Kingdom), Adrian Grenier (Entourage, The Devil Wears Prada) and Emmy-Nominated Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels, Elementary, Ally McBeal), will kick-off the 22nd edition of the OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival on Thursday, August 20, at 7 p.m. This special OUTshine Opening Night Drive-OUT preview at Dezerland Drive-In in North Miami (the film will be released to the public on August 21) will launch a celebration of diversity and equality with 80 thought-provoking films from 20 countries, (many never-seen-before and not available on any streaming platform) accessible via 44 screenings available from August 20 – 30, 2020. A livestreamed Q& A session will follow the film.

Stage Mother tells the story of Maybelline (Jacki Weaver), a conservative Texas church-choir director who inherits her recently deceased son’s drag club.

Arts and culture are essential for building a community, supporting the development and contributing to economic opportunity. Collectively, arts and culture enable understanding of the past and envisioning of a shared, more equitable future. The 7th Edition of Art Africa Miami Arts Fair: Back To Black: No On/Off Ramps is set to kick off Miami Art Week and Art Basel 2017 on December 5-10, 2017. The art fair is housed between the Pan-African Pavilion at 919 Plaza at The Lyric and the Featured Artists Pavilion at 920 historic Clyde Killens’ building both on NW 2nd Avenue in Overtown. Art Africa Miami Arts Fair explores how Black Arts respond to the assaults that currently beset the global African Diaspora and the world at large and how artists of African descent and the global south create modes of intervention of radical autonomy.

The event is sponsored by the City of Miami Southeast Overtown Community Redevelopment Agency(SEOPW) and the Greater Miami Visitors and Conventions Bureau. Twenty-five artists from the United States, Africa, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America are set to showcase their work.
This year’s theme, BACK TO BLACK: No On/Off Ramps, is a multimedia presentation including paintings, sculptures, photography, installation, and video as well as performance exploring how alternative narratives confront the resurgence of oppression and the idea of Black arts’ intervention in the cultural sphere as both necessary and urgent.

BACK TO BLACK: No On/Off Ramps explores how Black Arts respond to the assaults that currently beset the global African Diaspora and the world at large and how artists of African descent and the global south create modes of intervention of radical autonomy.

BACK TO BLACK: No On/Off Ramps honors all participant artists whose works have been deemed retaining a truth dimension of liberation. There will also be a series of lectures by noted artists and scholars who are at the forefront of the African Diaspora movement.

December 5th to December 9th
An abandoned department store comes alive
A 2-floor 43,000 sq ft multisensory experience
Tickets: http://bit.do/rawpopuptix

RAW POP UP is an interdisciplinary team and a collective of creators pioneering the Interactive Art Movement (IAM) through multisensory pop up experiences of art, music, technology, and performance art with lasting cultural impact.

Disrupting the “look-don’t-touch” boundaries found in the traditional art context, RAW POP UP encourages you to dive into new and ephemeral experiences where you actively influence art.

This edition of RAW POP UP takes place in a department store from a lost era in the heart of downtown Miami. Over 80 local and international creators, performers, and musicians will collaborate to transform a 43,000 sq ft department store for you to explore. Through immersive performances and interactive art installations you are asked to rethink your values and question your modern ways of living, inducing nostalgia of a time that has passed us.

After evaluating your values in our abandoned department store, find yourself in ALT_Future, a dystopian nightclub where the future is unknown, brought to life by live performances and DJs. The future is what you make of it. What will it look like? Find the answers on the dance floor until the early morning.

Spectrum Miami, a juried contemporary art show in the heart of the Arts and Entertainment District, will run from Wednesday, November 30 to Sunday, December 4 during Miami Art Week. As part of Redwood Media Group, Spectrum Miami is more than an art show—it’s a five-day fine art experience featuring top galleries and artists from across the U.S. and around the world, along with entertainment, curated projects, and evening events.

Every December, thousands of art collectors, gallery owners, dealers, curators, artists, and art lovers flock to Miami Art Week. Alongside the powerhouse shows of Art Basel, Art Miami, Scope, and Miami Project, Spectrum Miami showcases innovative new art in an elegant, gallery-style exhibition space.

“Last year, we moved to a new location in the Arts and Entertainment District, resulting in a 14 percent increase in attendance,” said Eric Smith, president of Redwood Media Group. “We are excited to see what this year will bring as Spectrum Miami has emerged as one of the best-attended cultural events in Miami.”

The theme for Spectrum Miami 2015 is [ELEVATE]: Heightening your senses at the hub of the art world. Spectrum Miami features specially curated programs that are informed by the theme, including site-specific Art Lab projects, Art Talks, a specially selected emerging LaunchPad Artist, and a selection of Spotlight Artists. These programs provide a dynamic experience for attendees, allowing them to view and interact with works by leading national and international artists and view exhibitions and events that showcase the thriving art landscape of Miami.

Spectrum Miami will also once again host ArtSpot International—a show within a show—curated by director Aldo Castillo, one of the most respected authorities on modern and contemporary art. ArtSpot will present carefully selected modern, contemporary, and cutting-edge galleries with a strong Latin-American slant that specialize in painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, and ceramics.

Tickets for Spectrum Miami’s Opening Night Preview Party are priced at $50. General Admission tickets are $20 for one day and $75 for the Opening Night Preview plus a five-day pass. Tickets will also grant you access to Red Dot Miami, a gallery-only show also owned by Redwood Media Group that is located right next to Spectrum Miami. A percentage of all ticket sales benefit LIFE is ART, a local Miami-based charity.

Exhibition on View During Museum Hours:
Wednesdays–Fridays, 1:00 – 6:00 PM; Saturdays, 1:00–8:00 PM; Sundays, 1:00 – 6:00 PM

The first design exhibition scheduled in the MDC Museum of Art and Design after its April 2018 reopening, By the People: Designing a Better America will explore the challenges faced by urban, suburban and rural communities in the U.S. and its bordering countries.
Based on more than two years of field research—traveling to shrinking post-industrial cities, sprawling metro regions, struggling rural towns, border regions, areas impacted by natural and man-made disaster, and places of persistent poverty, this exhibition presents collaborative designs for more equitable, inclusive and sustainable communities.

Organized by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian American Design Museum, and curated by Cynthia E. Smith, the exhibition features sixty design projects from every region across the United States, the exhibition will highlight design solutions that expand access to education, food, health care and affordable housing; increase social and economic inclusion; offer improved alternative transportation options; and provide a balanced approach to land use between the built and natural environment.
By the People aims to empower visitors to see themselves as designers—not just of objects, but also of ideas, strategies, and solutions that improve their daily lives. The exhibition will showcase the innovative and impactful actions generated through design, and inspire creative problem-solving at local, regional, national, and even international levels.

Freedom Tower
600 Biscayne Blvd,
Miami, Florida 33132

Cost: $12 adults; $8 seniors and military; $5 students (13 – 17) and college students (with valid ID); free for MDC MOAD members, MDC students, faculty, and staff, and children 12 and under.

Exhibition on View During Museum Hours:
Wednesdays–Fridays, 1:00 – 6:00 PM; Saturdays, 1:00–8:00 PM; Sundays, 1:00 – 6:00 PM

More than 130 feet long, William Kentridge’s 8-channel video installation, More Sweetly Play the Dance, encircles the viewer. Partly filmed live, partly rendered in Kentridge’s signature animated style, the work covers the walls of a gallery with images of a procession in a blasted landscape. An update of the danse macabre, this parade of death includes a brass band in the lead, followed by people carrying possessions or shrouded bodies, priests, patients dragging their IV drips, skeletons, and a live ballerina (South African dancer Dada Masilo), who wears a military uniform and carries a rifle. Wooden chairs for the viewers and four megaphones on tripods playing the soundtrack make this performative video an immersive experience. Combining elements of medieval allegory with evocations of recent sights such as Syrian refugees and bodies felled by Ebola, Kentridge presents a never-ending carnivalesque reminder of our own mortality that is by turns morbid, chilling, comic, and political. But in the artist’s hands, the triumph of death ultimately becomes a celebration of resilience and life.
William Kentridge is regarded as one of the most significant contemporary artists of our time. He has gained international recognition for his distinctive animated short films, and for the charcoal drawings he creates through a unique process of erasure and re-drawing. A native of Johannesburg, Kentridge has always addressed the more challenging and intimate aspects of contemporary life in South Africa, during both Apartheid and the post-Apartheid period, investigating the ways in which identities are shaped through shifting ideas of history and place. In the course of his examination, he explores the role of poetry in contemporary society, and offers a biting, satirical commentary of that society, proposing a way of seeing life as process rather than as fact. He is a visual artist, a filmmaker, a director, and a great raconteur. His body of work has spanned several artistic disciplines over three decades. Through the mediums of film, sculpture, installation, charcoal drawing, and his work in theater, Kentridge has explored the nature of memory and emotions, and the ambiguity and complexity of social conflicts in the age of globalization.

770 NE 125th Street,
North Miami, Florida 33161
Website
Cost: $10 to the general public, free to MOCA members and North Miami residents

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) will present the group exhibition “Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly” from May 24 – Aug. 5, 2018. Curated by Risa Puleo, the exhibition features the works of 37 artists who are native to the Americas separated into conceptual categories including indigenous, immigrant and assimilated.   
 
The exhibition focuses on the monarch, the only butterfly that migrates in two directions, as a geographic range and a metaphor. Monarchs (specifically those of eastern North American) fly from southern Canada through the Midwest on their way to Michoacán, Mexico and back. 
 
This survey of artists from or living in the path of the monarch, brings to life the Dakota Access Pipeline and the call to build a wall in Mexico as unrelenting issues that create challenges for people native to the Americas — being separated by conceptual categories of indigenous, immigrant, and assimilated. 
 
Like the butterfly, which takes at least four generations to completely navigate its way through middle America with inherited knowledge, these artists also use inherited cultural memory to showcase and explore historical narratives of their respective heritage through abstract techniques. 
 
Artists incorporate processes such as basket weaving, beadwork, copper hammering, and quilting, and materials such as stucco, plaster, ceramics, and feathers, that hold a high degree of resonance within native, immigrant, and brown aesthetics and vernacular cultures. The exhibition also charts the movement of styles and approaches through large spans of time across the Americas, speaking to an inherited means of production and genealogy of form. 
 
William Cordova, a nationally respected Miami-based artist, is one of the artists featured in the exhibition. Other artists include Gina Adams, Carmen Argote, Natalie Ball, Margarita Cabrera, Juan William Chávez, Rafa Esparza, Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez, Guillermo Galindo, Jeffrey Gibson, Sky Hopinka, Donna Huanca, Truman Lowe, Ivan LOZANO, Cannupa Hanska Luger and Marty Two Bulls, Jr, Salvador Jiménez-Flores, Nicholas Galanin and Merritt Johnson, Rodolfo Marron III, Harold Mendez, Mark Menjivar, Ronny Quevedo, Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez, Josh Rios andAnthony Romero, Guadalupe Rosales, Carlos Rosales-Silva, Francisco Souto, Rodrigo Valenzuela, Mary Valverde, Dyani White Hawk, Nathan Young, and Sarah Zapata.

Young Artist Initiative (YAI) presents RAW: a multi-sensory, 3-floor immersive pop up experience during Art Basel 2017 at the Historic Post Office Building in Downtown Miami.

RAW is a disruptive local presence empowering emerging artists during the most important week for the arts in Miami. This is the first and only art event to take place at the historic building.

In today’s world, the human mind is constantly over stimulated, not focused on living in the present moment. For its next installment, YAI has selected RAW as the curatorial thesis for site specific installations. The human senses will be stripped to their purest form; ready to be felt in a raw space. With over 40+ emerging artists interpreting the senses, RAW’s pop up aims to challenge, engage and awaken.

Awaken your senses.
