Pneumatikos – A Spiritual Gift
Broward County resident Virginia Fifield’s seemingly familiar subjects in her charcoal drawings encourage a deeper contemplation about man’s relationship with nature. Her work is deliberately devoid of context and color to strip away all stylized associations to her subjects.

Gary Nader Art Centre is proud to present an exhibition by Brazilian contemporary master Claudio Tozzi. The exhibition “Territorios” will feature Tozzi’s most recent work and will be on view from March 2 through April 2 at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood, located at 62nd NE 27th Street.

Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Claudio Tozzi initiated his career as an artist in the early ‘60s, with the appropriation of objects, images taken from newspapers, comics and photos associated with social issues through symbolic connotations. In the ‘70s, he created a new syntax through the construction of a thread of reticules and chromatic granulations that led to structures and spaces full of intense symbolic meanings. From the ‘80s until his more recent works, he intensified his formal concerns and started to work with basic structural elements such as lines, planes, colors and organic forms and materials that create formal analogies with pre-existing images and enlarge their constructive characteristics. Gary Nader Art Centre is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water recent works by Eduardo Del Valle
January 19 – March 15, 2017
Miami Dade College | Kendall Gallery

Independently over the past nine years, Eduardo del Valle has worked on a visual autobiography of his experiences and observations central to his childhood, his recollections of Cuba between 1951 to 1961, when he left the country of his birth at the age of ten, never to return. The photographic series Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water portrays certain aspects of the artists’ memories that have stayed with him, wedged deep at the far end of his recollection, aspects that have challenged del Valle forever in an unfading fashion. The project culminated into 88 autobiographical photographs, recreating memories shot entirely outside of the island.

For 40 years, Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gómez, have worked in collaboration focusing their practice and photographic series on subjects in states of transformation. Their work has received the international attention throughout the years with accolades including two Guggenheim Fellowships, solo exhibitions at New York Museum of Modern Art, NY, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA, and seven books of their photographs published by Nazraeli Press.

Sunkoo Yuh, Grafted Stories
November 30 – January 15, 2017

MDC Museum of Art + Design is pleased to present Sunkoo Yuh, Grafted Stories, featuring large scale ceramic sculptures by the South Korean born artist Sunkoo Yuh, curated by Miami Gallerist Mindy Solomon.

Sunkoo Yuh’s first museum solo exhibition in Miami will feature large scale ceramic sculptures, porcelain tiles and works on paper. Created over a twelve year period, the pieces interweave a tale of cultural integration, spiritual discovery, and creating order out of chaos. Yuh states: “The body of my work as an artist is to transform the images from my mind into tangible ceramic sculptures. The sculptures are sometimes monumental and then again sometimes small. My ceramic sculpture express not only physical realities but psychological realities at the same time, the sculptures also reflect my relationship with people and life experience around me, encompassing front and back, inside and outside, present and past memories”.

Yuh’s work is a reflection of the ongoing dialog he has with his day to day life. A cast of characters inform each sculpture and drawing- forming a bridge between his imagined reality and the travails he experiences as a bi-cultural citizen and artist. In essence the work is the “residue” of his attempts at securing a sense of permanency in a fluid world.

SunKoo Yuh is currently Associate Professor at the University of Georgia, Athens. He received his MFA from Alfred University. He has exhibited widely and has received many awards and honors. In 2005-03 he was the recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation grant, the Grand Prize at the 2nd World Ceramic Biennale International Competition, Icheon, Korea, The Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize and the Virginia A. Groot Foundation. His work is in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, Icheon World Ceramic Center, Korea, Oakland Museum of Art, California, and more.

PINTA Miami is gearing up for its 10th anniversary celebration, which will take place from November 30 to December 4, 2016 at MANA Wynwood, located in the heart of the Miami Arts District. This edition will be the pinnacle of ten years that have left a mark on the world of modern and contemporary art from Latin America. In order to further our mission, PINTA Miami’s curatorial committee has expanded its project to include galleries from around the globe while maintaining a conceptual dialogue across all cultures, connecting Latin America to the rest of the world.

Launched in New York in 2006, the fair is considered the most important event of its kind. The founding of PINTA Miami was a milestone event in awareness of twentieth-century Hispanic-American art. It has increased the visibility in the United States of crucial figures like Julio Le Parc, José Gurvich, Jorge Eielson, Lydia Okumura, Antonio Manuel, Waltercio Caldas, Ivan Contreras Brunet, Carlos Cruz-Diez, and Spanish artist Elena Asins—all of whom have been featured in its exhibitions and galleries. Emerging contemporary artists like Elias Crespin, Ivan Navarro, Alexandre Arrechea, Dario Escobar, Matias Duville, Alejandro Londono, Gonzalo Fuenmayor, José Luis Landet, Ricardo Alcaide, Emilio Chapela, and many others have also participated in the fair. Through innovative management strategies, PINTA has been instrumental to major museums’ acquiring works by Latin American artists. A few examples of such acquisitions include a piece by Abraham Palatnik purchased by MoMA for its permanent collection; a work by Elias Crespín purchased by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and a work by Fernando Bryce purchased by the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA).

“Thanks to its impressive programming, PINTA Miami 2015 was extremely well attended. Our curated sections featured not only works by a range of legendary artists, but also recreations of historical performances. The fantastic selection of participating galleries from Latin America, Spain, and Portugal built new relationships with international collectors and directors of art institutions, enabling a great many sales,” states Diego Costa Peuser, the founder and director of PINTA Miami. “There was great interest in figures like Romulo Aguerre, Reynaldo Luza, Roberto Obregon, and Elena Asins, and in artists born after the sixties like the Carla Arocha – Stéphane Schraenen duo.”

PINTA Miami 2016 will be more international and interdisciplinary. Thanks to their successful sections at last year’s edition, curators José Antonio Navarrete, Roc Laseca, and Jesus Fuenmayor will return this year to curate sections on photography, drawing, and solo projects respectively. This edition aims to continue to provide a platform for its participants and to further the fair’s mission of showcasing pioneering artists and discovering young talents.

In addition, PINTA Miami launches the Young Collectors Desk, an initiative of Guijarro de Pablo Art Consulting. The objective is to provide to the assistants -already avid collectors and enthusiasts of art – with the necessary tools to maximize the experience at the fair. The Young Collectors Desk aims to educate and give attendees the opportunity to explore the world of the arts with guided tours that focus on the construction and maintenance of a coherent and sustainable collection. The initiative is directed by Jimena Guijarro, who combines her knowledge of strategic communications with her experience and passion for the visual arts. One of her specialties is to introduce and facilitate the collecting processes to newcomers to the art world.

PINTA Miami is directed by Diego Costa Peuser, CEO and Editor in Chief of Arte al Dia Internacional magazine. He is also the founder and director of PARC – Peru Arte Contemporaneo, BAphoto (Buenos Aires Photo), and the Buenos Aires and Punta del Este editions of Gallery Nights. In this 2016 edition, PINTA Miami will also enjoy the support of the SaludArte Foundation, directed by collector Tanya Brillembourg, and EFG Bank, a Swiss bank that has had offices in Miami for over twenty years. LATAM also returns to PINTA as the sponsor of VIP lounge. On this anniversary edition, PINTA reinforces its commitment to support and promote latin american art while connecting it to the rest of the world by “crossing cultures”, thereby taking the fair to new frontiers.

Toda percepción es una interpretación: You are part of it is a retrospective look from the viewpoint of contemporary issues of art, culture, politics and economics. It seeks to reflect on the successive reconfigurations of the art map in the last few decades, on the displacements and relocations of its primary centers, from Paris to New York, from Venice to São Paulo, from Basel to Miami. It speaks of areas that have succeeded in alternating centripetal or centrifugal forces, where art has relocated its meeting points and its observation points. We also pay attention to the effects of redrawing the financial or political map, with the repercussion it has on how one makes and proceeds in art.

“Black Gold is the latest exhibition in MOCA’s storied succession of cutting-edge contemporary art presentations,” says Natasha Colebrook-Williams, Interim MOCA Director. “This exhibition explores the oil paradox and how entangled oil products are in our everyday life. Our mission continues to be to present diverse artists and topics that serve the greater community. MOCA is equally proud of the international outlook it is able to present and the unique exhibitions we share with our audience.”

As part of the experience, viewers enter a room with reflective mirrors and asymmetrical golden barrels suspended in the air as a laser beam traverses the space. Surrounding the MOCA pond, an installation of seven barrels refers to both the chemical elements of crude oil and the seven elements of design. The exhibition will run from September 15 – November 13, 2016.

The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) is thrilled to announce Conjunto Progreso as part of the monthly Jazz at MOCA series. This long-established Cuban Son ensemble has charmed audiences everywhere with their ability to transport audiences to a nostalgic era of early Cuban popular music.

Through the many years of performing, Conjunto Progreso displays an array of legendary artists including Johnny’s father Rolando “El Ruso” Aguiló, Congrego Luis Miranda, and bassist extraordinaire Eddie “GUA GUA” Rivera of the renowned group Batacumbele. Their familiarity on stage spans back to many major orchestras and musical associations in Cuba.

Their anticipated debut album titled “Masters of Cuban Son” was released in 2004. The record showcased an array of songs by legendary Cuban composers and astonishing arrangements from several members of the group. Their music is so widely acclaimed by the American public that they were honored with a 2006 Grammy Award Nomination under the category of Best Traditional Tropical Latin Album.

The galleries will be open by donation from 7 – 10 pm.

The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) is delighted to announce this month’s musical performance by the Glyn Dryhurst Dixieland Jazz Band as part of the monthly Jazz at MOCA series. The Jazz Band’s name “Dixieland” is a name bestowed to the style of jazz performed by early New Orleans jazz musicians. This is one of the earliest styles of jazz music and the Glyn Dryhurst Dixieland Jazz Band is the leading band devoted to this genre of music. The style combines earlier brass band marches, French Quadrilles, beguine, ragtime, and similar styles to achieve this unique style of music.

While instrumentation and the size of the bands may vary, the “standard” band comprises a “front line” of trumpet, trombone, and clarinet; and the “rhythm section” of either guitar or banjo, string bass or tuba, or piano and drums. This intricate jazz sound of music is kept alive by a handful of dedicated bands.

The MOCA galleries will be open by donation from 7 – 10 pm.

Presented by the Miami Downtown Development Authority, Art Days 2016 kicks off the arts season with events and exhibitions around downtown Miami.

Taking place onboard the Miami Science Barge, a floating marine laboratory and public environmental education center located in Museum Park, Trash Detectives invites visitors of all ages to create artworks on drift cards that will be deployed into Biscayne Bay as part of the Bay Drift research project being conducted by Frost Science, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, and University of Miami-based ocean currents consortium, CARTHE (Consortium for Advanced Research on Transport of Hydrocarbon in the Environment). Visitors will also have the chance to tour the barge and interact with visiting artists and scientists. Drift cards are thin, biodegradable pieces of wood, colored with bright non-toxic paint that will be used by scientists to learn more about how ocean currents in the bay transport oil, marine debris, and other pollutants.

Following Art Days, local organizations will release the drift cards from seven locations throughout Miami-Dade County. The beautifully colored drift cards will move into and within Biscayne Bay until someone finds it and reports the discovery to the scientists. On the cards are instructions asking the finder to report the date and location found.

Cost:

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami will launch its Summer season with the presentation of Intersectionality, a collection of works produced by approximately 50 South Florida artists as well as key artists who are based outside South Florida.

The exhibition addresses the multiplicity of social phenomena that intersect the body, including racism, sexism, homophobia and classism.

The exhibition will be on display from June 16 to August 14, 2016. The artists’ reception will be held Thursday, June 23, 7-9 pm and is open to the community.

The concept of “intersectionality” was developed in the early 1960s when depicting the experiences of African American women who were repeatedly excluded from bourgeois feminist discourse. The term was popularized by the legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989 and was predominantly used to illustrate the interconnectedness of oppressive institutions that are unable to be examined separately.

“With this exhibition we are highlighting two areas on which MOCA has focused: cutting-edge material and South Florida artists,” MOCA’s Interim Director Natasha Colebrook-Williams said. “We are proud to provide a platform for both emerging and established local artists through unique pieces and installations created for this exhibition. Conversely, MOCA is equally proud of the diversity of outlooks it is able to present with support from local artists.”

The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami or MOCA will host an artists’ reception for the new multi-artist exhibition, Intersectionality. Intersectionality will feature art by approximately 50 South Florida artists, as well as artists from outside the region, and will explore the multiplicity of social phenomena that intersect the body, including racism, sexism, homophobia and classism.

The concept was first derived by legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw in the early 1960s to illustrate the experiences of African American women who were perpetually prohibited from bourgeois feminist discourse. Intersectionality’s illustration of the correlation of oppressive institutions that are unable to be observed separately now serves as the inspiration behind the exhibition.

The artists’ reception will be open from 7-9 pm and will provide the opportunity for visitors to be immersed in the cultural diversity of an exhibition that is based on a lived experience.

MOCA members and residents of North Miami enjoy free admission. Other visitors pay an admission of $10

Photographs of Perez Art Museum Miami Poplife Social June Event by Mr Q 305

This past Thursday, the Pérez Art Museum (PAMM) Poplife Social featured John Hancock III whose sounds ranged from spaced out Arthur Russell inspired grooves to hyped-up digital calypso.

The third Thursdays Poplife Social have received a very positive response from the community and to meet the growing demand for the series, they have added pre-ticketing and more food and bar stations.

The menu items included Miso Glazed Chicken Skewers, Pork Belly Bao Buns, Grilled Mushroom Bao Buns, Shrimp Chips and Kimchee pickles.

This was the perfect way to enjoy a Thursday evening: Art galleries, live music and great food!

Jerome is an aspiring artist who arrives at a prestigious East Coast art institute to study. While Jerome enjoys daydreams of becoming the best-respected painter on Earth and winning the hearts of his female classmates, he soon learns the sad truth — his “cool artist” act is old hat in the big city, and as he’s surrounded by every art school cliché on Earth, practically nothing about him stands out. Determined to be recognized whatever the consequences, Jerome maps out a bizarre plan to become famous that has some unexpected consequences. Loosely adapted from a story in Clowes’ comic book Eightball, Art School Confidential also stars John Malkovich, Jim Broadbent, Anjelica Huston, and Sophia Myles. Author: Mark Deming. 102 minutes.

From 1960-1962, over 14,000 unaccompanied Cuban children left their homeland in what became the largest recorded child refugee exodus in the Western Hemisphere—an event that remained essentially unknown for over 30 years. Fearing their children’s indoctrination by Fidel Castro’s newly installed socialist and revolutionary government, parents entrusted their children’s fate with government and religious organizations in the U.S. Some children would reunite with their parents quickly, others after years of separation, and still others never saw their parents again. Experience the history of this event through video testimonies by the now grown children and artifacts such as letters, photographs, and other personal items documenting the stories of what became known as “Operation Pedro Pan.” In partnership with Operation Pedro Pan Group, Inc.

The frailty of Miami Beach as a barrier island is the subject of the Bass Museum of Art’s new addition to its series tc: temporary contemporary.

Visual and performance artist Reed van Brunschot collaborated with Francisca Twiggs, a painter who works as commercial display artist and fabricator, to create I”t’s Like the River, De Nile.” The work is installed in the storefront windows of the Walgreen’s store located at the corner of Collins Avenue and 23rd Street, along a popular pathway to the public beach. Using set design and analog stage tricks, everyday objects and shoreline detritus make up a narrative installation that is both whimsical and eerily foreboding.

“Apocalyptic flooding has been depicted throughout the history of art,” said Jose Carlos Diaz, Bass Museum of Art Curator of Exhibitions. “Twiggs and van Brunschot have given us their own interpretation of this subject in light of 21st century global warming.”

“Our intention is to utilize this location’s storefront to sell the idea of ‘The Great Flood’, a theme approached throughout history in the arts as something destructive yet cleansing, beautiful yet violent and principally, a subject that is so very relevant however lamentably taboo here in South Florida. There is a level of absurdity in the political dismissal of even using the words “climate change”. It is these dualities in this very current social topic that has brought on the inspiration for the artwork and it’s title.” says Artist Reed van Brunschot.

Reed van Brunschot received her BFA from the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 2011 and has exhibited and performed internationally. In 2014, her work was seen in Miami at Primary Projects and Locust Projects at NADA Fair; and Galeria Logo in Porto Alegre in Brazil. She was also a fellow in both Cannonball and the Artist in Residence in the Everglades residency program.

Francisca Twiggs received her BFA in painting from the University of Miami in 2008 and currently works as the Senior Display Coordinator for Anthropologie in Miami, FL.

Project Gallery: Mario Garcia Torres – R.R. and the Expansion of the Tropics
Opening Tuesday, December 2
On view: December 2, 2014 – April 19, 2015
Open to the public – general museum admission

R.R. and the Expansion of the Tropics is a project developed by Mexico City-based artist Mario Garcia Torres (b.1975, Monclova, Mexico) specifically for the Pérez Art Museum Miami in which a number of seemingly unrelated subjects such as Robert Rauschenberg, climate change and Florida are threaded together to form a series of conceptual and political questions. Garcia Torres has long been interested in exploring little-known issues within recent art history and in addressing parallel subjects that find new meanings and contexts through his careful juxtapositions. This project will create a number of gestures, including photographic documentation, film, music and other types of information displays.
Project Gallery: Mario Garcia Torres is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander.

Each year, in celebration of Art Basel Miami Beach, The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University hosts Breakfast in the Park. This event draws hundreds of art enthusiasts, patrons, collectors, gallery owners and artists from around the world, many of whom are visiting Miami for Art Basel. Each year a noted sculptor is invited to speak. Guests enjoy a complimentary outdoor breakfast, informal lecture and guided tours of The Sculpture Park as well as the exhibitions in The Frost Art Museum.

This year’s speaker, Daniel Arsham is a contemporary American artist whose art blurs the lines between art, architecture and performance. He explores issues of natural versus manufactured or intention versus happenstance.

In 2003 Arsham graduated from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science in NYC and received the Gelman Trust Fellowship Award. Arsham’s work has always played with notions of architecture. His sculptures and installations make architecture do things that it is not supposed to do. It wrinkles and ripples, and appears to blow like a curtain, it confounds our notions of how architecture is made and used.

In 2008, Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen established Snarkitecture, a Brooklyn based art and design studio that creates everything from functional objects to installation to stage design. It is a collaborative practice that aims to make architecture perform the unexpected, focusing on the investigation of structure, material and program and how these elements can be manipulated to serve new and imaginative purposes. Snarkitecture has received many high profile commissions including the baseball stadium in Miami, Storefront in NYC and Design Miami 2012.

Arsham’s work has been shown at PS1 in New York, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, the MCA Chicago, Athens Biennial in Greece, The New Museum in New York, Mills College Art Museum in Oakland, California and Carré d’Art de Nîmes, France among others. Daniel Arsham’s artistic practice includes commissioned public art, performance and architectural projects including several high profile collaborations with choreographer Merce Cunningham, Producer Pharrell Williams, Dior Homme, Jonah Bokaer and Designer Hedi Slimane.

Daniel Arsham was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1980, was raised in Miami and currently lives and works in New York City.
