Miami Art Museum will conclude its summer-long celebration of the local art community with the screening of a compilation of video works by Miami-based artists. The video compilation will be screened on a loop through the final weekend of New Work Miami 2010, Saturday, October 16, and Sunday, October 17, 2010, during regular museum hours. A special preview will be held at the exhibitionâ€™s closing celebration at Louis at the Gansevoort Hotel, Miami Beach, on Friday, October 1, 2010, at 9:30pm.
Like the New Work Miami 2010 gallery show, the video compilation comprises new and recent works by Miami-based artists. The selection provides a window into the wide variety of local experimental video art, from new forms of abstraction to non-narrative approaches. The compilation artists are: Sam Borkson & Bert Rodriguez, Friends with You, Christy Gast, Jiae Hwang & Nicholas Raftis III, Lee Materazzi, Raul J. Mendez, Magnus Sigudardson, Kyle Trowbridge, Tatiana Vahan, Agustina Woodgate and Juan Carlos Zaldivar.
Nearly 1,000 local artists, collectors, cultural leaders and community members celebrated the July opening of New Work Miami 2010, which featured a new performance by TM Sisters and spoken word poetry and music by Oscar & the Gipsy Catz. In conjunction with the exhibition, a summer’s worth of high-energy, after hours events included performances by Maria Jose Arjona, dancer Ana Mendez, local bands Beings and Jacuzzi Boys, artist Bert Rodriguez, and sound art collectives Flash Orchestra and Frozen Music. Exhibition artists were regularly available in the gallery for informal conversations about their work and even led art projects during the Miami Art Museum’s Second Saturdays are Free for Families program.

Miami Art Museum, a modern and contemporary art museum located in downtown Miami, FL, is dedicated to collecting and exhibiting international art of the 20th and 21st centuries with an emphasis on the cultures of the Atlantic Rimâ€”the Americas, Europe and Africaâ€”from which the vast majority of Miami residents hail. Recently, Miami Art Museum has presented exhibitions of works by Chantal Akerman, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Quisqueya Henriquez, Guillermo Kuitca, Wifredo Lam, Susan Rothenberg (November 2010) and Yinka Shonibare, and its Permanent Collection includes works by Jose Bedia, Chuck Close, Gerhard Richter, James Rosenquist, Tomas Saraceno, Lorna Simpson and Rachel Whiteread. Miami Art Museumâ€™s educational programming currently reaches more than 30,000 people every year, with the largest art education program outside the Miami-Dade County public school system. The new Miami Art Museum at Museum Park, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, is scheduled to open to the public in 2013. The new facility will provide room to showcase growing collections, expanded exhibition space to bring more world-class exhibitions to Miami-Dade County, and an educational complex, which will be a resource for the entire community.
