    With his biting political satire, celebrity caricatures, and magazine and advertising illustrations, graphic artist Conrado Walter Massaguer (1889–1965) helped shape the visual culture of his native Cuba between the 1920s and 1950s. This installation of works recently gifted to The Wolfsonian Library by Vicki Gold Levi will bring forth Massaguer’s legacy through dozens of works, from images of the “New Woman” flapper ideal (the so-called “Massa-girls”) in his magazine Social to depictions of tropical paradise for the Cuban Tourist Commission. Massaguer’s transnational reach will be shown in his covers for Collier’s and Life, while cartoons of visiting dignitaries and Hollywood stars will reveal how he rubbed shoulders with Franklin D. Roosevelt, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, and the King of Spain—all evidence of an artist at the center of Havana’s cosmopolitan culture in the decades before the Cuban Revolution.

    Frontline communities in South Florida have been fighting against exploratory oil drilling in the Everglades for years. Now the stakes are even higher: the case against Kanter Real Estate has made its way to Florida’s Supreme Court, and we have to take urgent action to stop them.

    With Kanter doubling down on its efforts to drill in the Everglades, we’re not backing down or going away. In fact, we’re doubling down too: getting ready to fight harder and smarter, training, connecting, and growing the fossil fuel resistance right here in our community.

    That’s why the Promise to Protect Training Tour is coming to Miami. The Promise to Protect was originally created to resist the Keystone XL pipeline, but now the promise has expanded nationwide to inspire organizers like us fighting for the Everglades in South Florida to stand up and refuse fossil fuel projects from entering our backyard.

    Can you join us for one of the upcoming trainings?

    The Promise to Protect Training Tour is an opportunity for us to learn from Indigenous leadership on how we can protect our threatened environment and frontline communities from toxic and destructive extraction that does nothing but harm people and our planet.

    This training will share knowledge from Indigenous leaders on the frontlines of the Keystone XL fight that can share best practices on how we can unite to fight for the Everglades. You’ll learn about nonviolent direct action, support roles that make nonviolent direct action possible, protocols for mobilizing in Lakota territory, and how to carry this work forward as we challenge the higher court officials.

    PRESS RELEASE: No Cafe con Fracking Press Conference on 4/18/18

    MEDIA ADVISORY

    Elected Officials and Business Leaders Unveil Anti-Fracking Art Installation

    Elected officials, Hialeah business leaders, and local artists will present an art installation at the Leah Arts District to demonstrate the threats of oil fracking

    Hialeah, FL — On Thursday, April 18th, local South Florida elected officials, business owners, artists, and residents will gather at the iconic 20ft flamingo mural in the Leah Arts District to unveil a new art installation to demonstrate the threats of oil and gas development near the Hialeah aquifer. Concerned residents will also present sweeping support for banning fracking among local elected officials and business owners in Hialeah and Miami Lakes. A recent court approval to drill for oil in the Everglades sparked outrage over the prospect of drilling and fracking in the Everglades a few miles from Miami’s drinking water sources, leading to this public demonstration.

    House Speaker José R. Oliva recently stated that he would vote in support of banning fracking. Residents will discuss the legislation to ban fracking that has been filed in the State Legislature. House Bill 7029 to ban fracking has passed multiple House Committees. Speakers will discuss the loophole present in the bill that would allow fracking using matrix acidizing.

    What: No Cafe con Fracking Press Conference
    When: Thursday, April 18th at 11 AM
    Where: Leah Arts District, 1000 E 15st Hialeah, FL
    Who: Hialeah Councilman Paul B. Hernandez, City of Hialeah
    Sara Britto, The Art Experience

    Funcionarios Electos y Líderes Empresariales Develan Instalación De Arte Anti-Fracking

    Funcionarios electos, líderes empresariales de Hialeah y artistas locales presentarán una instalación artística en el Distrito de Artes de Leah para exponer las amenazas del fracking

    Hialeah, FL — El jueves 18 de abril, funcionarios locales electos del sur de la Florida, dueños de negocios, artistas y residentes se reunirán en el icónico mural de flamencos de 20 pies en el Distrito de Artes de Leah para presentar una nueva instalación artística que expone las amenazas de los procesos para el petróleo y gas cercanos al acuífero de Hialeah. Los alarmados residentes también mostrarán el extenso apoyo con que se cuenta entre los funcionarios locales y los dueños de negocios en Hialeah y Miami Lakes para prohibir el fracking. Una reciente aprobación judicial que considera la perforación y fracking en los Everglades, a pocos kilómetros de distancia de las fuentes de agua potable de Miami, causó indignación y condujo a esta manifestación pública.

    El presidente de la Cámara, José R. Oliva, declaró recientemente que votaría a favor de prohibir el fracking. Los residentes también discutirán la legislación para prohibir el fracking que se ha presentado en la Legislatura del Estado. El Proyecto de Ley de la Cámara de Representantes 7029 que busca prohibir el fracking, ha sido aprobado por varios comités de la Cámara. Los oradores discutirán el vacío presente en el proyecto de ley que permitiría el uso de está técnica utilizando la acidificación de la matriz.

    Qué: Conferencia de Prensa No Cafe con Fracking
    Cuándo: Jueves 18 de abril a las 11 AM
    Dónde: Distrito de Arte Leah, 1000 E 15st Hialeah, FL

    Reflections of MIU Style ’19 Annual Fashion Show Featuring Student Collections on 4/4/19

    The latest collections from the Miami International University of Art & Design Associate of Arts and Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fashion Design students. More than 20 fashion design students presented their collections during the show and I have to say, WOW. I’m fairly particular about fashion, but most of these were quite impressive. Flattering to the body, beautiful colors, interesting materials, and some real innovative lines in this collection. Congratulations to all the students, I look forward to seeing more in the future.

    Photographs from Robin Schulz & Friends | Spinnin’ Hotel Miami 2019 on 3/28/19

    Had the opportunity to roll through Robin Schulz & Friends at the Spinnin’ Hotel last night. We got to see Robin Schulz himself, as well as a few of his friends. Despite a little bit of rain, the party was popping. The staff at the hotel was awesome (something not always true at MMW parties).

    I actually think that in more than a decade of covering Miami events, I have never been in the Nautilus hotel. It is a beautiful place, right between the Shore Club and the Shelborne. The Spinnin’ Hotel goes all weekend, so if you are looking for a good party in Miami Beach, I can definitely recommend it.

    Reflections of WMC 2019

    Winter Music Conference was March 25-28 at the Faena complex in Miami Beach.

    So, I went to check out the new WMC this year. Gotta say I loved it. The new location is beautiful. The vibe was positive and buzzing. Maybe I’m biased because I love being around music biz people, but that is certainly how it felt to me.

    It was definitely smaller than back in the heyday, but I heard quite a few people remark that they hoped it would grow in its new home. It does seem like there is still a desire for a professional industry gathering, which is good.

    It was well organized. The signage was plentiful and clear, something I am a real stickler about. The staff was polite and helpful, something that is not always common.

    They had a nice variety of workshop sessions, including a few that covered more uncomfortable, but necessary, topics, such as mental health issues. There were demos and tutorials, and the modest exhibit hall had quite a bit of gear that attendees could test out.

    I think the one thing I missed the most was a talent showcase. I like those a lot. Also, the networking at the Tree of Life was too loosely organized. I would have like to have seen some better management of that. Making connections is really one of the most powerful aspects of a conference, and they let it slide by the wayside this year.

    All in all, it seemed a positive and upbeat restart to the brand. I look forward to future iterations as they grow. Below are a few photos of the various spaces and the IDMA after-party.

    An Age-Old Fairytale Awakens with New Perspective at World Premiere in South Florida During Miami Art Week; Then Travels to New York’s Upper West Side Beacon Theatre

    The world premiere of Sleeping Beauty Dreams, a contemporary art exploration of the age-old fable brought to life by Magic Reality Group, will debut at the Adrienne Arsht Center during Miami Art Week. The EDM-influenced performance explores one of the most iconic stories ever told, Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty,” and will showcase the first-ever fusion of live contemporary ballet dance with 3D digital avatars projected on-stage in real-time. The Miami showings of this story never told before takes place at the Ziff Ballet Opera House at Adrienne Arsht Center. The performance then visits New York City the following weekend at the Beacon Theatre.

    The legend of Sleeping Beauty has been retold by masters since the 14th century, but no one has explored what the princess was dreaming while she slept for 100 years. Global prima ballerina, Diana Vishneva, performing as Princess Aurora and Marcelo Gomes, as Prince Peter are brought together in a fusion of dance, music, art, and revolutionary 3D digital technology never seen on stage before. Artists joining Vishneva and Gomes include Tobias Gremmler and Bart Hess, with music by famed EDM pioneers, NOISIA, a Dutch trio whose music is featured on Hollywood blockbusters and works with some of the world’s biggest artists including Skrillex and deadmau5.

    Sleeping Beauty Dreams is an unprecedented fusion of contemporary dance with state-of-the-art, real-time avatar-mapping projection technology and electronic music for a multi-dimensional scenic experience. This emerging technology allows the constantly transforming avatars of Sleeping Beauty Dreams to seamlessly replicate the dancers’ movements live, adding a whole new dimension to the world of live performance.

    Discover an interpretation of what happened during the princess’ 100-year slumber in Miami at the Adrienne Arsht Center on December 7th and 8th at 8 p.m., tickets are available here. Likewise, the performance comes to New York at the Beacon Theatre on December 14th and 15th at 8 p.m. and tickets are available here.

    Faena Festival: This Is Not America 12/3/18 – 12/9/18

    Faena Festival: This Is Not America
    December 3-9, 2018
    Faena Forum
    3300-3398 Collins Avenue
    Miami Beach, FL 33140
    Schedule
    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.

    ‘Faena Festival: This Is Not America’ features commissions, installations, videos and performances by 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.

    During the difficult moments that we are living in the United States, in Puerto Rico by the devastations of the hurricane Maria and the earthquake (Mexico City, Morelos, Hidalgo y Oaxaca) that have occurred in past days, Mex/Art tries to be a bond of kindness and humanity with those whom have been affected.100% of the money collected from the sales of the opening day tickets, will be destined to support the Puerto Rican and Mexican victims.

    Mex/Art will have areas like The Green Garden, where the attendees can taste many different and delicious traditional dishes with a contemporary touch. At the same time the Pop-Up Store will open their doors to the local and Mexican Designers that are in vogue to show their latest pieces.
    Some of the Mexican artists that represent the culture with their pieces are Neón Carón Jesús Lima, Jorge Marín, Esteban Fuentes and Colectivo Madera de Lobo. As invited artist, there will be the brazilian Romero Britto.

    “A multi-sensory and inclusive event gathering leading experts that takes us on a journey to learn, experience and practice tools that assist people on a path to sustainable happiness and well-being. Through knowledge and new positive mindsets attendees can reshape their personal, family and professional lives.” – from the WoHaSu website.

    The WOHASU 2018, that took place at the University of Miami, was a weekend filled with inspiring and educational talks about happiness. Leading experts in from various different disciplines, such as positive psychology, fashion, media, sustainability, economics, mindfulness, technology, and business, attended this year’s summit. The topics of the presentations ranged from sharing personal experiences and personal projects to talking about the science behind happiness. Of course, there were many more areas that were covered, but in some way, they all related to the main topic of happiness. This year, the WOHASU welcomed people from over 35 countries and 45 US states.

    Every morning a few early birds participated in the outdoor yoga program, before attending the first talk around 9 am. Although the weekend was filled with many talks, and panels, there were also breakout sessions during which multiple experts presented in different rooms at the same time. This allowed attendees to chose presentations that they were most interested in. Attendees also had the opportunity to meet with coaches in small groups. These sessions were great for networking, but also for talking about the lessons learned and how to best implement and integrate the lessons into a daily routine.
