Archeology of Memory: The site and sound of ceramics, examines the history and use of materials in their raw form, examined through the lens of material culture and utilitarian tradition. The exhibition explores the transcendental nature of the medium, bringing together artists who work with ceramics, glass, and cement in both traditional and experimental allegory to challenge the notions of perception and the psychology of texture, color, and form. The works function within the cross lexicon of said elements and consider scale, both intimate or grand. Archeology of Memory invites viewers to walk through the synaptic workings of each artist’s mind to visually witness the manifestations of their inner thoughts and aspirations.

The participating artists are Judith Berk-King, Beatriz Chachamovitz, Xavier Cortada, Morel Doucet, Jenna Efrein, Sharon Norwood, Lauren Shapiro, Troy Simmons, Kira Tippenhauer, and Valeria Yamamoto.

Cost: $15 adults/ $12 seniors/ $7 students / Free for military and kids ages 6 and under

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, invites guests to explore “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale,” a new major permanent exhibit opening October 1 (members-only preview on September 30 at 6 p.m.).

The exhibit will allow visitors to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis. The first major history exhibition in three years, this visually compelling exhibit will occupy half of one of the main upstairs galleries and will remain part of the History Museum’s permanent exhibits. Highlights of the exhibit include New River development pioneer Tom Bryan’s original desk and chair from the 1920s, agricultural artifacts from the early 1900s, a historic hotel register and family photos.

The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale, descendants of William Bryan, a Revolutionary War veteran from North Carolina, can be traced back to Florida as early as 1844 with the birth of great grandson Philemon Nathaniel Bryan in Hamilton County. Philemon served in the Confederate Army and moved south to Volusia County after the Civil War. He acquired extensive citrus groves and served as the mayor of New Smyrna. After acquiring wealth and a reputation for his agricultural skills, he and his wife, Lucy, moved further south and arrived on the New River in 1895, where Bryan served as a construction contractor for the Florida East Coast Railway and officer in the first city bank. He and his seven children, including Reed A. Bryan, Tom M. Bryan, Virginia Dallas Bryan and Constance Bryan, along with several relatives, also settled in Fort Lauderdale and helped build it to prominence. They worked as farmers, innkeepers, and businesspeople becoming civic leaders and nurturing the City on its way to prosperity.

“The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” will join other insightful History Fort Lauderdale permanent exhibits including “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, Seminole Tribal art and artifacts and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale. The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting African American and Afro-Caribbean contributions, Hispanic crafts and local artists.

Last year, History Fort Lauderdale, in conjunction with The Florida Humanities Council, launched Florida Stories’ “Walk Fort Lauderdale,” the first FREE Broward County walking tour app (available through the App Store and Google Play). The tour, featuring archival photos, renderings and cultural narratives, allows visitors to learn about the colorful history of Fort Lauderdale at their own pace at 12 significant locations including the New River and Bryan Homes on the History Fort Lauderdale Campus and the Bryan/Abreu building (201 SW 2nd St.).

The exhibition proposes works of various media that incorporate abstraction as both a formal and conceptual framework to render perceptions of place. The use of abstraction facilitates readings of the process inherent in their making. This process involves elements that reference diverse notions of place – its color, materiality, use of language, and instantaneity as landscape. The summation of these notions, a conversation between the work as a whole and its constituent parts, contributes to varying degrees of legibility and evocativeness.

The participating artists are Liene Bosquê, Jenny Brillhart, Jude Broughan, Alain Castoriano, Robert Chambers, Irina Dakhnovskaia-Lawton, Lucia Del Sanchez, Genderfail, Ivan Grilo, Xavier Luján, Marron et Masqué, Juan Matos, Nicole Maynard-Sahar, Tana Oshima, Alice Quaresma, Marielle Plaisir, Carrie Sieh, Gerbi Tsesarskaia, and Cristina Victor.

On View: October 11, 2019 – March 31, 2020

Adler Guerrier (born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; lives and works in Miami, FL) is best known for works in photography, drawing, and printmaking that explore the poetics and politics of place. Guerrier received a BFA from New World School of the Arts/University of Florida. His recent exhibitions include Coffee, Rhum, Sugar, & Gold: A Postcolonial Paradox (Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco), curated by Larry Ossei-Mensah and Dexter Wimberly, La Construcción de lo Posible, XIII Havana Biennial (Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Wifredo Lam, Havana), and Lines of Fracture (David Castillo Gallery, Miami). Guerrier is a resident artist at the Bakehouse Art Complex and a board member of Oolite Arts and Locust Projects.

MOAD presents a series of public programs related to its current exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet. Rather than a formal sit-down lecture, MOAD’s “Discussions In Situ” are engaging, conversational, and scholarly exhibition tours lead by a wide array of interdisciplinary experts. While pointing to specific art work and archival material on view, Tsang sparks a conversation on “The Hidden Cabrera,” highlighting Cabrera’s biography and research methods.

Where the Oceans Meet is an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant. The show is comprised of an international group of artists and collectives consider notions of shifting and porous borders—and how crossing borders has shaped our world. They articulate various aspects of the two scholars’ thoughts on race, diaspora, colonialization, creolization, language, and territory, particularly with regards to Miami’s position in a world that never stops turning. Where the Oceans Meet will be on view until January 12, 2020.

Coral Gables, FL- Cernuda Arte is pleased to present a stunning solo exhibition of works by Cuban-born artist, Vicente Hernández. Vicente Hernández: To Leave, or Not To Live, That Is The Question. Recent Works of Flight and Despair,
Opening Reception – Friday, August 2nd, from 6-9 pm at Cernuda Arte. The show will place a thematic focus on massive migrations of Cuban people, a contentious topic which runs centrally through the artist’s work.

While this new gathering marks the artist’s third solo show on American soil, Hernández still works from within the island of Cuba, vividly depicting the plight of its youth in their search for a better life of opportunities and freedoms.
His paintings, crafted with the vocabulary of magic realism, expose the absurdity of reality in Cuba and reinforce the intensity of hope of its people. The twenty-two canvases on view emphatically reflect a necessary voice and a true contrarian spirit.

The grandson of renowned Davie dairy farmer, Hamilton Forman, Tim grew up in South Florida. Some of his favorite pastimes were visiting the beach, fishing in Biscayne Bay with his dad, and stargazing. He first picked-up the brush at nine years old under the instruction of Peter Olsen. By 17, Forman was receiving commissions. Primarily a self-taught artist, Forman’s work is the result of dedicated practice. He uses field sketches, plein air paintings, and photographs to compose his pieces that are painted in layers with both knife and brush. He creates his landscapes to portray the splendor and simplicity of the natural world around us. Through his work, Tim seeks to lift the spirits and inspire awe above our day-to-day lives.

Delano South Beach, the iconic oceanfront hotel located in the famed Collins Ave, is hosting a new art installation, POP ART NIGHTS, in its lobby, giving locals and travelers alike, yet another reason to migrate to the beach. Featuring strong pops of color and trendy designs, guests can enjoy the beautiful creations from eight renowned artists from now until June 11th, 2019.

The eight talented artists for this installation collection include:

David David – Unequivocally self-taught and internationally recognized, David David is a French artist who has become one of the most influential and sought-after figures in the Contemporary Art world. From the walls of our streets, to his workshop, David Davids “DNA” constantly makes minds wander through its thought-provoking statements.

Phillippe Berry – Phillippe Berry, a sculpture artist born in Paris, aims to showcase the exploration of childhood worlds: balloons, teddy bears holding hands, figurines of cowboys and indians, snowmen…he works poetically and in many ways in his favorite material, bronze. He likes the idea that viewers can see, understand and interpret his works in multiple ways.

David Kracov – At the age of 12, Boston native, David Kracov, became one of the youngest artists ever to be showcased in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. He first began experimenting with clay before making his way to steel, creating unique wall sculptures, all hand-cut and hand painted. David discovered and developed different techniques, including the technique of metal laser cutting, which he has mastered and uses throughout his artwork.

Alec Monopoly – After first painting variations of the Monopoly Man in 2008 when the economy crashed as a commentary on capitalism, consumerism, corporate greed and the scandals rocking the banking industry, Alec garnered overnight fame. He now works with clients like Robert De Niro and Adrien Brody, among others.

Mr. Brainwash – Mr Brainwash is a French artist, based in Los Angeles, who is considered the most prominent of the street art movement. Madonna approached him to design the cover of her greatest hits compilation, Celebration. He also took Miami Art Basel by storm, and the Olympic Games in London into another art spectacle entitled “Under Construction” by using abandoned buildings.

Rainer Lagemann – In 2005, German artist, Rainer Lagemann, started welding and found his true passion and a special talent for it. Concentrating on the human body in a modern interpretation of the classic art of sculpture, Rainer became fascinated by it, as well as the classic theme of artistic expression and struggle that has been depicted in all shapes, materials and mediums.

Fabien Novarino – From a very early age, Fabien Novarino loved to draw, paint and make models. At the age of seven, his family settled in the south, where the dazzling light, a new climate and the wild landscapes influenced his young sensitivity. He knew he wanted to be a painter, but did not immediately take up the trade. Fabien followed a commercial career until the age of 27, when he decided to launch upon an artistic adventure.

Dorit Levinstein – Since 1988, Israel native, Dorit Levinstein’s sculptures have been exhibited in the most prestigious contemporary art fairs and have been part of international collections. Her spare, elegant sculptures seem to giggle with delight as if tickled, then stretched out with an exquisite elasticity to form their position in space. Shape and color combine to infuse Dorit works with boundless joy.

Zins-Browne’s The Chaos Opera draws upon Glissant’s defense of chaos as a mechanism for embracing difference. The performance brings together voices from diverse musical traditions—R&B, bolero, death metal, rap, and opera—to explore how different voices might cohabitate in the same space without capitulating, assimilating, or forcing cohesion. Rather than the idealized harmonies of “fusion” music, it asks how different voices can maintain their opacity in relation to each other, and how such a cacophony might allow new forms, voices, and hybrid languages to emerge. The Chaos Opera will be performed by Dyna Edyne, Michale Grafals, Celeste Landeros, Niuvis Martin, and Nad Pitt.

This compelling transnational exhibition of modern and contemporary art considers how crossing borders continues to shape our world.
The international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition investigates the ways borders form identities and negotiate imaginary spaces. The artists’ inquiries range across mediums and genres, and attempt to answer urgent questions that concern us all today.

Where the Oceans Meet stems from the pioneering literary, anthropological, and philosophical work of two Caribbean writers, the Cuban painter, scholar, and ethnologist Lydia CABRERA (1899–1991) and the Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Édouard GLISSANT (1928–2011). Embodied by the works of art in the exhibition, their ideas explore how art can think and break through barriers of history, geography, and culture.

Where the Oceans Meet will offer a platform for questioning colonial and modern thought, and placing it into perspective. Its themes resonate in Miami, a city where oceans meet, so often imagined as a crossroads of the Americas and a space of transition par excellence.

The exhibition is curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal.

10 Days of Connection is a community-led initiative to promote kindness and inclusion in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. From May 1-10, participants are invited to attend connection experiences hosted by more than 100 local organizations, and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zone to forge new connections across lines of difference.

In recent years, people have become increasingly divided across lines of difference. Incidents of hate have increased, and tolerance for differing ideas has decreased. For ten days each year, we challenge the entire community to break down silos and engage in acts of connection, to build empathy, to increase understanding, and to refocus on our shared humanity.

Join in! Our community will be stronger when we all commit to focusing on what unites us instead of what divides us. A full calendar of events is available at http://bit.ly/ConnectionEvents2019.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will host its newest visual arts exhibit entitled “Paradise from Land to Sea: Photography of JohnBob Carlos” from March 3 – May 22, 2019. Photographs artistically capturing the beauty and majesty of Florida’s coastal vistas, skies and wildlife will be on display at the New River Inn.

JohnBob Carlos, a native Floridian and photographer, captures images of Florida’s wildlife, landscapes, cultures, and waterways. His art of the lens is his means for creating a voice for Florida’s nature and preserving Florida’s culture. At a young age he felt a calling to paddle, hike, fish, and explore the Everglades. He was at home among the hammocks, swamps, strands, animals, Mangrove Islands and Florida’s wild. In recent years Carlos has become deeply concerned about the state of Florida’s nature – the devastation of these areas mostly due to money, development, pollution, business and politics. He continues to realistically document the beauty and wonder of the world around us and uses his lens to focus on the region’s need for the greater conservation and preservation of resources.

Presented by History Fort Lauderdale, bringing the stories of our diverse community to life through engaging educational experiences, innovative cultural exhibits, research and preservation of artifacts. Residents and visitors to Fort Lauderdale are invited to explore the city’s rich past that is housed in historic buildings on a lushly landscaped campus – the History Museum of Fort Lauderdale situated in the 1905 New River Inn, the 1907 Pioneer House Museum, the 1899 Ivy Cromartie Schoolhouse Museum and the Hoch Research Library, South Florida’s foremost history center housing print resources and newspapers from 1910 – present plus 400,000 archival photos, 2,500 maps and 5,000 architectural blueprints.
