Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale and The Consulate-General of Japan in Miami are proud to present Japanese Kaiju Toys and Contemporary Art, an online lecture that will premiere on NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel on Thursday, July 9 at 6:00 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public and all those interested in viewing may register at www.nsuartmuseum.org/event.

Hosted by Professor James B. Levy, Professor at Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law and a longtime collector of Japanese kaiju toys, this virtual presentation will explore the history and cultural impact of the kaiju – an array of fictional giant monster-like characters that have transcended Japanese culture to become hugely popular among science fiction fans, artists, scholars, and folklore lovers around the globe – in toy form. The lecture will also delve into how these colorful collectibles have changed how many define art and how it is collected.

First depicted during the 1960s and ‘70s in Japanese television shows, these giant monsters were usually shown battling super-heroes trying to save cities from destruction. Their quick rise in popularity prompted Japanese companies to produce an array of soft vinyl monster toys based on their characters. Decades later, these kaiju collectibles were rediscovered by collectors including influential artists, musicians, designers and writers who were attracted by their fanciful, creative designs and wild, psychedelic colors, and are responsible for starting the urban vinyl collector movement, which has been embraced by artists like KAWS, FriendsWithYou, Kenny Scharf, Yoshimoto Nara and Takashi Murakami. Some of these artists are currently being featured in NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s Happy! exhibition, recently extended through August 30.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301

Cost: Free

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, continues to celebrate Women’s History Month with an exclusive opportunity to meet award-winning “Fly, Fly Away” (Piñata Publishing; ISBN 978-0-9809163-6-2) author Pamela Bauer Mueller on Monday, March 23, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., in The New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue in Downtown Fort Lauderdale). The event is free. Mueller will be sharing passages and signing copies of her newest book that introduces readers to the dramatic, heart-wrenching true story of “Pedro Pan” children.

Pamela Bauer Mueller has a well-deserved reputation for showcasing men and women of significance in American history. Now through impeccable research and expressive writing, she introduces thousands of Pedro Pan children and their families through carefully crafted stories of three-dimensional characters.

“Fly, Fly Away” takes a bold step away from her seven award-winning historical novels. She shares the unforgettable story of how families coped with the loss of their beloved children, how compassionate Americans mobilized a major national campaign to give those children a chance to find happiness, and how the children rushed into independent lifestyles, one trial and error at a time. Mueller weaves together unforgettable tales of loss, resourcefulness and romance, recounted by brave adolescents thrown into a new world of uncertainty and constant culture shock. The result is a compelling story of the Cuban revolution from the point of view of resilient youngsters and families facing setbacks and inspiration.

Mueller’s meticulous research and extensive interviews with people who lived through the Pedro Pan movement also give readers insight into an historic example of America’s generosity as a nation and history of compassionate sharing with neighbors in dire need.

The winner of three Georgia Author of the Year awards, Mueller based “Fly, Fly Away” on meticulous research and extensive interviews with many participants and experts. Historical facts are developed and showcased with creative story-telling and memorable characters.

Entrance to the meet and great is complimentary with an RSVP at Eventbrite at http://bit.ly/HFLMuellerAuthorSigning.

In addition to author signings, the nonprofit History Fort Lauderdale also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean and Latin artists sharing their views of history.

Pioneer of the Créolité movement, Raphaël Confiant interweaves excerpts from his writings with musings on Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Édouard Glissant to unpack issues underlying Where the Oceans Meet, such as the interplay between language and identity.

Raphaël Confiant was born in Le Lorrain, Martinique. He studied English and political science at the Sciences Po Aix, and law at Paul Cézanne University in Aix-en-Provence, France. During the 1970s, Confiant became a militant proponent of use of the Creole language, and later worked with Jean Bernabé and Patrick Chamoiseau to create the Créolité movement. Together, the three authors wrote the movement’s seminal text, Eloge de la créolité (In Praise of Creoleness, 1989), in addition to other theoretical texts. The Créolité movement is often characterized as a reaction to the Négritude movement, which emphasized the African origins of the Antillean people. Créolité, on the other hand, emphasizes the diversity of Antillean ancestry and cultural heritage, which also includes Chinese, Indian, and European influences. The movement seeks to understand the diverse identities and histories of the people of the Antilles through the lens of literature and language and eschews the universal in favor of a diverse view of language and identity. Confiant is a well-known writer in both Creole and French and is currently a lecturer at the University of the French West Indies and Guiana (UAG).

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.

The documentary feature Nueva Venecia portrays the inhabitants of a small village in the Santa Marta marsh in Colombia, who live on the water and make a living by fishing. Their lives changed drastically on November 22, 2000, when a paramilitary group slaughtered 37 people and forced the other villagers to move out. In spite of the horror and the possibility of further acts of violence, the community eventually returned, choosing to face the hazards of new assaults rather than quit their way of life. Things did change, however, as fishing-boat memorials and ceremonies to honor the dead have become familiar, as have constant pleas to the authorities for justice. Something else keeps people together: soccer, played again on the field built on stilts, long hidden under water. Sport provides the only hope for a way out for many of the local youngsters, who dream of both social and economic improvement, and of being discovered by some scout or club agent to become Colombian soccer stars.

Participants will discuss food access and define this conversation to the community at large. They will cover four tracks of food rescue: municipality/policy, technology/innovation, corporate/retailers and health/hunger. Other topics addressed will be government and policy actions, retail/corporate involvement, agricultural involvement, health care, institutional settings and charitable response.

In addition, participants will learn about South Florida food insecurity landscape and increasing food access for all. Feeding South Florida representatives will share data on the need in the South Florida community, challenges and solutions toward ending hunger in South Florida.

Feeding America®’s nationwide initiative, Hunger Action Month (HAM) is when people stand together with Feeding America and the nationwide network of food banks to fight hunger. It’s a month to spread the word and take action on the hunger crisis, and for people to dedicate themselves to finding a solution.

Have you ever wondered why the same situations in your life keep manifesting on repeat making you feel frustrated & stuck? No matter how badly you desire to get to the next level and finally experience a different result the same mental roadblocks keep getting in the way of you achieving:
· The Money you desire
· The feeling of worthiness & being enough
· A purpose driven lifestyle
· True joy & happiness

Artists Daniel Boyd and Andros Zins-Browne join curators Asad Raza and Rina Carvajal to consider ideas that underlie MOAD’s new exhibition Where the Oceans Meet. How have Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant’s writings and methodologies influenced practices in contemporary art and curation? How do notions the two Caribbean writers explored (such as globality, creolization, and cosmology) help us make sense of historic narratives and our contemporary moment? What does it mean to think, live, and act where the oceans meet.

This event inaugurates the Museum of Art and Design at MDC’s new exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet (May 26 to September 29, 2019) curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal. 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 international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition considers notions of shifting and porous borders—geographic, national, cultural, social, racial, ethnic, and linguistic—and how crossing borders has shaped our world.

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.

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.

Join the conversation by following @ConnectMiami on Facebook, @10dofc on Twitter and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #10DaysOfConnection to share your experience. Learn more at.

NAMI Miami-Dade County expects to attract thousands of people and seat close to 800 people at the 4th Annual Reel Minds Miami Mental Health Film Festival at the University of Miami’s Donna E. Shalala Center on Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. This year’s festival will showcase six short films. The narratives behind these films will share a range of life experiences meant to inspire, heal, and empower people. Following each short film, an individual with a lived experience of a mental health challenge will speak on the films’ topic for a few minutes providing further insight about the message behind each film.

This year’s lineup is comprised of films from a variety of talented directors, including a member of the International Cinematographers Guild, a multi-award-winning actor and Navy Veteran, and an award-winning filmmaker. The six films were chosen out of almost 200 submissions based on their compelling storytelling and way of educating and dispelling the myth behind mental illness. Submitted films were judged by film makers, clinicians, high school and college students, individuals with mental illness and their family members.

The 2019 lineup includes Terms of Us by director, writer, producer Roberto Sanchez, a Cuban born, Miami raised Navy Veteran who has a recurring role on Queen of the South. Additionally, Roberto will be speaking at the festival; Baby Steps from Los Angeles director, Eric Dyson; Misdirection by Carly Usdin, a University of Central Florida graduate with Miami ties, now an award-winning filmmaker based in Los Angeles; Reverie by Nick Markham; Saving Billy by Vickie Adams; and UkeLayla, directed and produced by a team of recent Miamians and graduates from the University of Central Florida.

“Films are a compelling storytelling form that connects with our deepest sensibilities, and research suggests that film festivals have a positive impact on stigma and recovery in mental illness. That’s why for the fourth consecutive year, NAMI Miami-Dade is showcasing a curated list of short films inspired by the lives of those who have been affected by mental illness,” says Kathryn Coppola, Executive Director at NAMI Miami. “Together, we can spark the awareness that makes the difference in our society.” NAMI Miami’s goal is to “end the silence” and to start the conversation about mental health proving that recovery is possible.

Proceeds from the evening will enhance Child Rescue Coalition’s technological developments, increase law enforcement training and rescue thousands of children from sexual exploitation and abuse.

The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Despite this traumatic experience, she has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs and national legislation. The founder of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, Smart has also helped promote The National AMBER Alert, The Adam Walsh Child Protection & Safety Act and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions. She chronicled her experiences in the New York Times best-selling book, “My Story.” In addition, she and other abduction survivors worked with the Department of Justice to create a survivors’ guide, entitled, “You’re Not Alone: The Journey from Abduction to Empowerment.” Her most recent book, “Where There’s Hope,” is both an up-close-and-personal glimpse into her healing process and a heartfelt how-to guide for readers to make peace with the past and embrace the future.

Sponsored by TransUnion, the evening will celebrate law enforcement officers’ successful utilization of Child Rescue Coalition’s Child Protection System (CPS) Technology, with an elegant dinner, awards presentation and exciting live and silent auctions. To date, CRC’s CPS Technology is used free of charge by more than 11,000 law enforcement officials in 50 states and 90 countries and has been instrumental in helping to put an end to child sexual abuse. Child Rescue Coalition has assisted in the arrest of over 11,000 child predators and the rescues of over 2,500 abused children in the last five years.

First-Ever Event Presented By NATPE In Association With The NAACP And The NHFA

“Living the Dream: A Career in Content” Featuring Esai Morales, Gloria Calderon Kellett, Benjamin Lobato and more in Miami on January 21, 2019

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 9, 2018) – NATPE, the National Association of Television Program Executives, will present the first ever “Living the Dream: A Career in Content” event in partnership with the NAACP, (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and the NHFA (National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts). The event will be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 21, 2019, one day before NATPE Miami 2019 commences, at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach Florida.

The special event is designed to assist students, young professionals and others with a desire to enter the entertainment and media industries to learn more about how their dreams can become a reality. Both the NHFA and the NAACP are committed to raising awareness of diversity and inclusion in front and behind the camera as well as in all creative content with the overall mission to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. The organizations both have programs to inspire today’s youth and are committed to furthering awareness of multi-cultural content, diversity in media, and inspiring youth to follow their dreams.

World-renowned producer, director, actor and screenwriter Tyler Perry, will deliver the Keynote Address. Mr. Perry is an outstanding example of an individual who began his career with very little and through extraordinary talent and dedication has risen to the top of the industry in all areas of his multi-talented skills. Mr. Perry’s remarks will be followed by a panel headlined by CSI: Los Angeles’ Esai Morales, showrunner for USA’s “Queen of the South”, Benjamin Lobato and Netflix’ “One Day at a Time” showrunner Gloria Calderon Kellett, as well as other leading talent, executives, producers and writers who have imbedded storylines of diversity in their works. The final portion of the day’s presentations will be followed by a “Celebration of Creativity”, in which three pre-selected students will present story ideas dealing with diversity live onstage to a panel of industry-leading development executives. The three budding young filmmakers will be selected from the NAACP’s Hollywood Bureau film education program, which searches the country for talented young people in a variety of disciplines, and the NHFA’s whose PitchDC and PitchNY programs showcase authentic and original content ideas from NHFA student scholars, alumni and associates.

“This will be a very special day. A day to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and to inspire and empower young people as they begin a career in entertainment and media. We are honored to be presenting this event, headlined by Tyler Perry, and in association with two of the most respected organizations in America,” said JP Bommel, President and CEO, NATPE. “I know that those that will attend will be enriched with greater knowledge about the opportunities that lie before them.”

“Martin Luther King, like Cesar Chavez, spent their lives working to become the change they asked us all to become in our beloved country,” said Felix Sanchez, NHFA Chairman and Co-founder, “during these trying times, we look to storytellers to reveal the true narrative of our nation. We applaud NATPE for its leadership to advance these principles.”

“Joining forces with NATPE on Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday is right in line with the efforts we put forth to bring diversity to the forefront of everyone’s minds, especially in the world of entertainment,” said Derrick Johnson, President and CEO, NAACP. “We are honored to bring students together to hear from one of the greatest creative and business minds of our generation in Tyler Perry, and are excited to reveal the rest of the programming, which will feature top talent and executives from television, as we draw closer to the event.”

All proceeds from the event will go to the NATPE Educational Foundation to support educational initiatives. NATPE will invite students from Miami-area universities and high schools who are interested in getting into the entertainment/media business to the event. Industry execs attending NATPE will also be in attendance to network and engage with students. The NATPE Educational Foundation and its programs are focused on creating new professional opportunities for young professionals looking to pursue a career in Hollywood.

Jam, write, record and perform with the world’s greatest rock stars during Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp’s up-close-and-personal music experience headed to Fort Lauderdale Nov. 8 -11.

There’s no need to “Dream On” when you can play with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer guitarist JOE PERRY of AEROSMITH and “Bring It On Home” with legendary drummer JASON BONHAM of JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EVENING plus rock star counselors Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath), Monte Pittman (Madonna), Teddy Andreadis (Guns N’ Roses), Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett & The Blackhearts) Chip Z’Nuff (Enuff Z’Nuff), Kirk McKim (Pat Travers Band), Gretchen Menn (Zepparella), Alan Hewitt (The Moody Blues), Tanya O’Callaghan (Dee Snider, Maynard James Keenan), Gary Hoey and Stephen Gibb (Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society, Barry Gibb)!

The camp is also offering an opportunity to record with special guest Tony Bongiovi. Bongiovi’s work includes albums by The Ramones, Talking Heads, Aerosmith and Ozzy Osbourne.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become immersed in rock and roll for four incredible music-filled days. The fully interactive, participatory camp takes place in a non-competitive atmosphere that welcomes guitar players, bass players, vocalists, drummers and keyboard player at all skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp experience begins the moment of sign-up. After a skill level and musical preferences assessment, fantasy campers are placed in a band with other like-minded, similarly skilled musicians all ready to rock. Whatever their level of proficiency – from lead guitar to rhythm guitar to air guitar – abilities and confidence will grow during rehearsal under the constant guidance of rock star counselors.

These recognized musicians won’t simply coordinate your band, they’ll inspire in a series of intimate master classes on the camper’s chosen instrument, stage presence, and everything rock and roll, along with tales from the road. Our newest class, THE ROUNDTABLE, welcomes campers to bring their original song to work on with our incredibly talented and skilled rock star counselors. Campers will take part in Q&As with headliner and rock star counselors, parties, catering, road crew and more. Ultimately, attendees will practice, show-off skills in front of family and friends at camp, take photos, get memorabilia signed and then jam live, onstage, with Joe Perry of Aerosmith and Jason Bonham.

Spaces are limited and a variety of packages for both musicians and family and friends are available by visiting www.rockcamp.com/fantasy-camp-joe-perry-jason-bonham-2018.php.

Hi, my name is Matt Pack,

I’m the creator of the “Fast Pack Summer Slim Down Challenge” and I have something special to share with you.

If you are struggling with your weight, then this is for you!

You’re invited to a FREE nutrition seminar at the Primal Fit 360 studio.

During this 1 hour seminar, you will learn exactly what I did to help a small group of Primal Fit members lose over 100 pounds combined within 30 days doing simple exercises and focusing on diet.

The information I want to share with you is so powerful yet simple, I can’t wait to meet you in person and show you how to utilize this technique to achieve your personal fitness goal.

Our program sheds light on toxic food relationships and empowers people to take full control of those negative eating behaviors that are interrupting their well-being.

Traditional diet programs have failed individuals over and over again promising things they couldn’t provide. Especially for the person participating in the program, it can be extremely de-motivating when there is a significant amount of weight to lose with little to no progress.

Enough is enough and I chose to put all my energy into helping you and others who share this struggle.

My personal goal now is to take as much weight off of you as quickly as possible,
while empowering you to take massive action towards a healthier lifestyle.

The first step is education, that’s why I’m hosting this seminar for FREE and that’s why you should join me.

The second step is to take MASSIVE ACTION with the right people and support.

As I introduce you to a simple yet healthy technique to battle your weight, I will challenge you to implement what you learn during the 30 days “Fast Pack Summer Slim Down Challenge”.

Are you ready to learn how to improve your health?

Are you ready to take massive action and accomplish having the body you always wanted?

Are you ready to look in the mirror again and just be happy, less concerned and more proud of your body?

A founding principal of METALAB, a multi-disciplinary design firm in Houston, Texas, Joe Meppelink pursues resiliency and sustainable technologies. In response to extreme conditions with a lack of grid power, hurricane force winds, and storm surge flooding, Meppelink and METALAB have invented and deployed a range of tactical and technological responses. These projects range from a containerized, solar-powered, off-grid field office to modular farming and growing systems to elevated hurricane-resistant housing systems. While each of these addresses a critical issue, Meppelink finds that a similar ethos informs other projects (such as public parks and a fleet of river boats) in unexpected ways.

What can architecture and urban planning do to mitigate racial inequality? Do we still believe that residential racial integration is the solution? Miami’s lines of racial segregation have barely moved since the Civil Rights movement. On the one hand, incoming immigrants settled in neighborhoods according to preexisting demographics, while residential programs crafted in the aftermath of the 1968 Fair Housing Act to promote integration were increasingly defunded. On the other, new infrastructure projects, along with real estate interests, reconfigured the city’s geography in some areas. As a result, black neighborhoods experienced a decline. How can new “placemaking” initiatives, largely spearheaded by communities and the nonprofit sector, contribute to overcoming inequality?

Sam Van Leer, the president and founder of the nonprofit Urban Paradise Guild (UPG), asks how can we fight the causes and effects of climate change while making Miami a better place to live today? Instead of solutions that exclude the public and allow big business to shape policy, Van Leer examines how everyone can get involved in projects such as restoring natural habitats, introducing urban agriculture for low-income families, and engaging the public and local leaders to find new ways to protect the environment. Van Leer has himself led efforts likes these at various parks and urban areas around the county, including ACE Preserve, Amelia Earhart Park, and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.

‘Hacking School Culture: Designing Compassionate Classrooms’ was written by Ellen Feig Gray, a Miami positive psychology practitioner, researcher, and parent coach, and Angela Stockman, a professional learning facilitator and educational consultant based in New York.

As colleagues and parents who have witnessed an atmosphere of heightened anxiety among students, teachers and parents across the country, Ellen and Angela came to the realization that, “bullying prevention and character building programs, while deepening our awareness of how today’s kids struggle and how we might help, are not enough to create school cultures where students and staff flourish.”

The program will begin with a meet and greet session with the authors, followed by a one-hour interactive workshop starting promptly at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. A book signing and a question and answer session continues until 2:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Recently, “placemaking” has become a buzzword among policy makers, foundations, and community activists. As public institutions reduce their involvement in the arts, culture, and education, private stakeholders have stepped in to address communities’ needs for inclusive public spaces. These spaces, ranging from small children playgrounds to entire arts districts, are ideally conceived in dialogue among communities, public policy agents, interested businesses and non-profits, and others. This panel will discuss how to activate “creative placemaking” initiatives, and how to balance communities’ mobilization (or lack thereof), the top-down approaches of policy-makers, and the profit drives of urban developers.
Panelists: Dr. Ann Markusen (University of Minnesota), Victoria Rogers (Knight Foundation), Roberto Rovira (Florida International University).
Moderator: Dr. Ariana Hernandez-Reguant (Tulane University)

Pastors and counselors will discover how to use this form of therapy. This cutting-edge research may be applied to oneself after a workshop.

MOAD MDC – Anna Maria Maiolino: Entrevidas (Between Lives) 4/21/18

As an immigrant coming of age in a politically unstable Brazil, Anna Maria Maiolino searched for a new language to articulate everyday human existence. One of the most important artists of her generation, Maiolino’s multidisciplinary practice has always sought to connect art and life, to give structure to primordial experiences of language, self, and the body. The performance-installation Entrevidas (Between Lives), was originally conceived in 1981, during the period between the end of Brazil’s military dictatorship and its return to democracy. Spectators were invited to cross an obstacle course of hundreds of eggs on a cobbled street of Rio de Janeiro to experience feelings of uncertainty and risk, but also to imagine the resiliency of life and of new beginnings. Revisiting the installation today, the artist points to the precariousness and potential of the present moment.

Anna Maria Maiolino was born in Italy in 1942 and migrated to Brazil in 1960. She participated in the Nova Figuração (New Figuration) movement there in the early 1960s. Shifting away from representation toward Conceptualism in the early 1970s, Maiolino began working with Super 8, photography, and installation art that prominently featured clay. Major exhibitions of her work have been held in 2001 at The Drawing Center and Art in General, New York; in 2005 at the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo; in 2006 at Miami Art Central; in 2010 at the Camden Arts Centre, London, and the Antoní Tàpies Foundation, Barcelona; and in 2017 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Her work is included in the permanent collections of major museums, including the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome, the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, the Reina Sofia in Madrid, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

This lecture-performance addresses the notion of “encounter” as essential to a politics and an aesthetics of the commons. By drawing from several philosophical and political traditions that have analyzed the ethics and politics of the encounter, and by invoking artistic propositions that bring into the world improbable events (particularly in performance art and experimental choreography) André Lepecki will consider how the event of encounter precipitates groundings for living away from the necropolitical logic of our current imperial, colonial and murderous neoliberal monohumanism.
André Lepecki is Professor and Chairperson in Performance Studies at New York University. He is editor of several anthologies on dance and performance theory, including Of the Presence of the Body (2004) and Dance (2012). An independent performance curator, he has created projects for Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw; the Hayward Gallery, London; Haus der Kunst, Munich; and the 2016 Biennale of Sydney. Lepecki is the author of Exhausting Dance: Performance and the Politics of Movement (2006, translated into ten languages) and Singularities: Dance in the Age of Performance (2016).

Teatro Ojo/Hector Bourges/Patricio Villareal: Disorganizing Mimesis 3/10/18

300 NE 2nd Avenue, Building 1,
Miami, Florida 33132

Cost: Free

The Mexico City-based group Teatro Ojo essays the possible dispositions and sequences of gestures, images, and machinations that sketch tensions within the texture of a “spectral contract” on which the figure of the Mexican nation-state is incessantly organized and disorganized—a contract plagued by “public secrets”: what we all know and yet we cannot utter. Bourges states the following about Disorganizing Mimesis: “Five images of a radical theatricality: a flayed/flayer god; a talking cross that incites a silent indigenous uprising that lasted a hundred years; a skeleton of the last Aztec emperor made from the bones of birds, deer, dogs, and a woman’s skull; the corpse of Emperor Montezuma talks to his people through a sinister act of ventriloquism; Subcomandante Marcos is unmasked by the Mexican government in 1995…and he turns out to be the son of a furniture dealer.”
Made up of Héctor Bourges, Karla Rodríguez, Patricio Villarreal, Laura Furlan, Gisela Cortés, and Emanuel Bourges, Teatro Ojo was founded in 2002 in Mexico City, where they still live and work. Their practice has shifted from conventionally theatrical territory to an expanded field that includes artworks, performances, and urban interventions. Collaborating with artists Santiago Sierra, Melanie Smith, Mario Bellatín, Juan José Gurrola, and others, the group questions ideas of memory, the city, violence, community, modernity, education, pre-language, and the post-human. Teatro Ojo’s most important projects include the installation Xipe Tótec, Ponte en Mi Pellejo (Put Yourself in My Shoes), at the 2012 Belluard Bollwerk International Festival, Fribourg, Switzerland, and Lo Que Viene (Forthcoming), a stage project at El Galeón Theater, INBA, Mexico City, also in 2012. Teatro Ojo’s work was also included in group exhibitions in 2014 at the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid and at the Alhóndiga in Bilbao. In 2011, Teatro Ojo received the gold medal for best Theater Architecture and Performance Space in the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space.
Teatro Ojo is part of Living Together, a cross-disciplinary series of performance art, film and video screenings, talks, and workshops held in venues across the greater Miami area and reflecting the cultural, social, and political realities of how we live now.

MDC Wolfson Auditorium
300 NE 2nd Avenue,
Miami, Florida 33132

Cost: Free

In Out of the Shadows III, Jumana Emil Abboud asks “What do places speak of?” This audio-visual performance includes Palestinian folk-tales and traditional oral histories. These stories that inspire the artist have always emphasized the importance of relationships with the landscape and with sources of water. Evoking her Palestinian roots and the places to which she is deeply connected—Jerusalem, Jericho, the Dead Sea, and the Galilee—the artist uses music, poems, and drawings to weave together past and present, contemporary reality and the unseen world with its jinns and ghoulehs. For this world premiere, Abboud collaborates with Issa Freij, and the artists reflect on their experiences during a four-year film project as they searched for the haunted sites of which the tales tell. Their interactive storytelling explores folk customs, sacred objects, and enchanted locations to underscore themes of memory, loss, and resilience.
