Arts Mean Business Speaker Series – Federico Uribe RESCHEDULED 2/11/21

Arts Mean Business Speaker Series – Federico Uribe
Thursday, 02/11/2021-, 06:00 pm-07:00 pm
Cost: Free with RSVP

Business for the Arts Broward (BFA) kicks off the New Year with its ongoing Arts Mean Business Speaker Series (AMB) featuring a free virtual presentation and live Q&A with artist Federico Uribe.

Viewers who wish to attend must email their RSVP to rvegas@bfabroward.org by Wednesday, February 10 to receive the invitation link.

A native of Bogota, Colombia, Uribe has become a prominent artist featured in North and South America, Russia, England and Italy. After completing his studies at the University of Los Andes, he left Bogota in the late 1980s to pursue a master of fine arts degree in New York. After working and studying for many years in Cuba, Mexico, Russia and England, he finally settled in Miami, where he resides today.

Beginning his art career strictly as a painter who created sensual and brooding canvases influenced by his dark reflections on the Catholic sense of pain, guilt and sexuality, Uribe later expanded his work to create unique installations and sculptures in the mid-90s. His current work resists classification and emerges from intertwining everyday objects like bullet shells, pencils, neckties or electric wires in surprising ways to create boldly beautiful paintings and sculptures which become instruments of a new aesthetic, full of color, irony and lively playfulness.

AMB is just one of several ways BFA supports local artists while fostering cultural vitality, creative success and economic development. BFA continuously supports the local arts community and promotes local artists, cultural non-profits and diverse art-related projects. BFA annually hosts several events in addition to AMB, including Art & Soul, Art in the Workplace, Art Curation and Art+Stroll.

Dance NOW! Miami presents This Moment, Here
Sunday, 01/10/2021-01/10/2021, 07:00 pm-10:00 pm
Cost: $10

This Moment, Here is a commentary on the “time of Corona,” told through the language of dance. The confinement, isolation, rage, longing, confrontation, disbelief, optimism and camaraderie that make up the world’s shared experiences during these turbulent months are the inspiration for this one-act ballet. With choreography by DNM Co-Founders and Artistic Directors Hannah Baumgarten and Diego Salterini, the piece was developed building on personal stories of company members and others. “This Moment, Here” features original music by Federico Bonacossa, costumes by Haydee and Maria Morales and set and lighting design by Bruce F. Brown, all long-time DNM collaborators.

Tickets for the Sunday, January 10, 7:00 pm (Eastern time) performance are $10. Buyers will receive a password for viewing the live event on the Dance NOW! Miami YouTube channel. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at http://dancenowmiami.org.
