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. The unique taste of BACARDÍ inspired cocktail pioneers to invent some of the world’s most famous drink recipes including the Mojito, the Daiquirí, the Cuba Libre, the Piña Colada, and the Presidente. BACARDÍ Superior rum has won more than 750 awards for quality and taste making it the world’s most awarded rum. Today, BACARDÍ is mainly produced in Puerto Rico, following the production legacy set forth by Don Facundo Bacardi Massó – crafted in a five-step distillation process, mellowed in American white oak barrels, and filtered five times for unparalleled quality and smoothness.

The BACARDÍ® brand is part of the portfolio of Bacardi Limited, headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda. Bacardi Limited refers to the Bacardi group of companies, including Bacardi International Limited. The Bacardi brand portfolio comprises more than 200 brands and labels including GREY GOOSE® vodka, DEWAR’S® Blended Scotch whisky, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® gin, and MARTINI® vermouth and Italian sparkling wines. www.bacardi.com

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.

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.

Rockford Projects seeks innovative artworks for the inaugural artCURATED sector of ArtFTL 2019.
ArtFTL returns for the 3rd year as the premier art fair in Fort Lauderdale, drawing collectors during the height of the season in South Florida. Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America” due to its expansive and intricate canal system, and this 4-day curated art fair showcases the art within luxury waterfront properties. Attendees are transported via complimentary water taxi on an artistic journey along the famed Intracoastal waterways, in the heart of the arts and entertainment district.
The ArtCURATED sector will encompass an entire property of 5,000 to 10,000 square feet, and feature 40+ artists, within six distinct, thematic exhibitions, under the direction of Lisa Rockford.

Seeking art that corresponds to the following Exhibition Themes:
• ECSTASY: A Celebration of Color. Seeking Monochromatic artworks (made of a single/dominant, vivid color), or works that offer all colors in the rainbow, within one work.
• AURA: A celebration of Light. Seeking artworks that reference intense light, auras, or are made with neon, LEDs, florescent, incandescent lights, digital, or electric light components.
• NARCISSUS: Seeking art with mirrors, mirrored surfaces, and/or chrome, or polished stainless steel.
• ELEMENTAL: Earth and Water. Seeking artworks that emphasize earth or water, and/or the human connection to either. Artworks that reference ecological concerns, like sea level rise, and pollution, are of curatorial emphasis.
• MEMENTO MORI: Seeking artwork that references death, time, mortality, and transience.
• OMEGA: The absence of color. Seeking artworks that are nearly or completely white, yet offer exquisite surface quality, texture, or aesthetic.
Please note: This Call for Art (and the themes & terms listed here) are specifically for the artCURATED sector of ArtFTL, and is a separate application (with a different fee structure) from the ArtINDIE Category on the ArtFTL website.

SPF18 Small Press Fair Fort Lauderdale 11/10/18

SPF18 Small Press Fair Fort Lauderdale

FATVillage Project Space
523 NW 1st Ave,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301
Facebook
Cost: Free

SPF’18 will take over FATVillage Saturday, November 10, 2018, for an epic, print-happy day of exhibitors, with a market of print, book and zine exhibitors from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Boca Raton, Orlando, Gainesville and beyond, a giant steamroller pressing the largest prints of the fair, live demonstrations of print-making techniques, creation stations and art making activities, a stage of author and poets talks, a cabana with ice cold, locally crafted beer, food trucks and so much more!

SPF’18 will showcase a diverse range of local and regional artists, printers, publishers, authors, poets, bookmakers, designers, zinesters and cultural workers, sharing and exhibiting new work related to printmaking, book making and zine creation.

What is a zine? A zine (/ˈziːn/ ZEEN; short for magazine or fanzine) is most commonly a small-circulation, self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images, usually reproduced via photocopier or similarly inexpensive means. Zines are usually the product of a single person, or of a very small group. The primary intent is to advance the views of the creator rather than profit, since the time and materials necessary to create a zine are seldom matched by revenue from its sale. Zines tend to deal with subjects that are too controversial or niche for mainstream media.

SPF’18 exhibitors will take over The Projects in FATVillage, Fort Lauderdale, a 8,000+ sq ft warehouse space, celebrating the growing interest and support for independent and small press artists and publishers that have fueled the sub-culture in South Florida for years.

Funding for SPF’18 is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council as well as the following Funds from the Community Foundation of Broward: Fonda and H. Wayne Huizenga, Jr Family Trust Fund, Gary J. Scotto Fund and Mary and Alex Mackenzie Community Impact Fund. Additional funding is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council and Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Open to all ages, including service and support animals and well-behaved pets.

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.

Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly” Artist Reception  6/14/18

North Miami, Florida 33161

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.
