Waypoint @ CONTEXT Art Miami 2015
A film series debut from Wet Heat Project and the Division of Fine Arts & Cultural Affairs at MIA
The new 24/7 art-centric video site WAYPOINT at Miami International Airport debuts its first original programming at CONTEXT Art Miami 2015. â€œWe Make Passageâ€ is a film series of portrait-making encounters between Miami-based artists and the men and women of the 24/7 working community of Miami International Airport. Diverse artists with distinct practices will engage four MIA workers with distinct professions; the in-situ poses that result will be produced as original artworks. The artists will be challenged to evoke the sense of dedication and tireless commitment that keeps one of the worldâ€™s busiest transportation centers in motion every day of every week of every year.
The fast-track portrait project will be captured as a series of individual films to premiere simultaneously on December 1, 2015 in a special project space at the CONTEXT Art Miami Fair (along with the artworks created for the project) and at WAYPOINTâ€™s large-scale video screen in Miami International Airport’s newest international terminal area, Concourse J, which facilitates millions of passenger journeys every year.
WAYPOINT is a video exhibition programming initiative presented by the Division of Fine Arts & Cultural Affairs of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department (Yolanda Sanchez, Director) and Wet Heat Project (Bill Bilowit, Director).
