“The art doesn’t has restrictions and has no prejudices. The art is freedom and reflections.” With this slogan, Mex/Art is defined in an exhibition of the Contemporary and Pop Art that will take place from December 1st to 11th 2017, during The Miami Week of the Arts hosted by Florida City.
Mex/Art, a cultural and social project of Be/Art Gallery, is an online Gallery of art that promotes the works by artists of different origins, styles and genders.

During the difficult moments that we are living in the United States, in Puerto Rico by the devastations of the hurricane Maria and the earthquake (Mexico City, Morelos, Hidalgo y Oaxaca) that have occurred in past days, Mex/Art tries to be a bond of kindness and humanity with those whom have been affected.100% of the money collected from the sales of the opening day tickets, will be destined to support the Puerto Rican and Mexican victims.

Mex/Art will have areas like The Green Garden, where the attendees can taste many different and delicious traditional dishes with a contemporary touch. At the same time the Pop-Up Store will open their doors to the local and Mexican Designers that are in vogue to show their latest pieces.
Some of the Mexican artists that represent the culture with their pieces are Neón Carón Jesús Lima, Jorge Marín, Esteban Fuentes and Colectivo Madera de Lobo. As invited artist, there will be the brazilian Romero Britto.

La Santa Taqueria is collaborating with Be/Art Gallery to curate the culinary experiences for guests of Mex/Art – a contemporary and pop art exhibition celebrating emerging and established Mexican artists, from paintings and drawings to sculptures from December 1-11. Artists featured include Romero Britto (Brazilian invited artist), Jorge Marin, Jesus Lima, Neon Caron, Alvaro Cuevas, Gabriela Montano, Robert Morleghem, Carlos Luna (Cuban invited artist) and more.

South Florida’s leading contemporary dance ensemble, Dance NOW! Miami, entering its 19th year, is expanding its footprint with its “New Voices” initiative by commissioning a work from Jamaica-born and Miami-raised choreographer Christopher Rudd. The world premiere of his work, sponsored by Miami Salon Group and Citizens Interested in Arts, will be featured in the company’s first major program of the season, on Saturday, December 1, at Miami Beach’s Colony Theatre, with an encore presentation on Sunday, December 9, at the Alper JCC in Kendall.

The program also includes a revival of Dance NOW Artistic Directors Diego Salterini and Hannah Baumgarten’s “Random Patterns of Falling Leaves”, Salterini’s “Melody in Four Parts: Just Traveling”, and the world premiere of Baumgarten’s “Grace.”

“Chris is a perfect fit for Dance Now’s Florida-rooted but international-in-scope approach to today’s dance world,” says Baumgarten. “We are excited about his work, which melds multicultural influences with his own signature style, created specifically for our company’s dancers.” Mr. Rudd’s choreography draws on contemporary ballet, modern dance, and aerial approaches. He trained at the Thomas Armour Youth Ballet and is a graduate of Miami’s own New World School of the Arts. He has gone on to perform with and choreographed for many leading groups, including Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal, the Elizabeth Streb company, and Cirque du Soleil, and is the director his New York-based ensemble, RudduR Dance.

“Random Patterns of Falling Leaves” is Salterini and Baumgarten’s critically acclaimed homage to autumn, its revival timed for the ending of fall with its early December dates. Salterini’s “Melody in Four Parts: Just Traveling” is a metaphysical journey from birth to death and the beyond, created after the passing of his mother, with an original score by Ohio composer Jenny Bernard Merkowitz and text from Seattle-based poet Janée Baugher. The world premiere of “Grace,” choreographed by Baumgarten, will tell the story of her Biblical namesake Hannah, bringing a Jewish and female perspective to the performance.
