Toni Erdmann by Maren Ade

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017 at 8:30 PM - English

Winfried doesn’t see much of his working daughter Ines. The suddenly student-less music teacher decides to surprise her with a visit after the death of his old dog. It’s an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project as a corporate strategist in Bucharest. The geographical change doesn’t help the two to see more eye to eye. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and Winfried agrees to return home to Germany. Enter flashy Toni Erdmann: Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.

The Daughter based on Henrik Ibsen’s The Wild Duck

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017 various times - English

Drawing together a dream ensemble cast that includes Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush, Sam Neill, Miranda Otto and incendiary teenage newcomer Odessa Young, The Daughter is the feature debut of acclaimed Australian stage director Simon Stone. He reimagines for the screen his hugely successful stage adaptation of Ibsen's The Wild Duck, updated to 21st-century small town Australia. Paul Schneider is Christian, a prodigal son returning after many years to his rural hometown for his father's wedding. He finds the world he knew pushed into a deepening decline hastened by his father's recent closure of the local sawmill. His return brings with it the unraveling of a deep-rooted family secret that threatens to break apart the lives of the remaining townspeople and those once closest to him. The film mines Ibsen's themes of class and sexual division to suggest they are still painfully real in the contemporary world. While dysfunction and deception lie at the core of The Daughter, there is hope too, with each of the characters imagining something better - a future unencumbered by the sins and betrayals of the past.

A Thesis Exhibition by Meg Kaplan-Noach

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017 at 7:00 PM - English

“Gonzalo Nuñez Galetto and Carlos Spartacus – Lexicons and Signifiers: A Thesis Exhibition by Meg Kaplan-Noach” highlights drawing as a specific practice– from the varied perspectives of the two artists, the exhibition’s viewers, and the Curator. Individually Nuñez’s and Spartacus’ drawings portray intricate relationships and conditions, but they also are recordings of wide-ranging environments and emotions. Gonzalo’s are minimal and precise, and Carlos’ are loaded and expressive. This exhibition enthusiastically pairs their individual aesthetics by focusing on connections and tensions. In addition Nuñez and Spartacus collaborate on a series of site-specific Chance drawings installed within the attached Project Space. This exhibition includes an onging component that prompts a viewer-drawing component inviting visitors to make their own mini-responsive drawings which, are then also exhibited simultaneously on a dedicated gallery wall.

Panther Alumni Week Exhibition : “The Matriarchs”

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017 at 6:00 PM - English

In The Matriarchs I collaborate with all the women in my family to produce a series of still-life photographs, portraits, and cinematic imagery. References to mythical protagonists such as saints, deities, and other famous icons are interjected throughout. The images emphasize physical gestures of connectivity, hierarchy, balance, and tension–all allusions to the relational dynamics that exist between women in family units. Set in the subtropics, the work conflates female identity amidst a disappearing South Floridian territory. Ultimately this series is about contemplating loss while maintaining that the feminine presence is tender, generative, and powerful.

Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

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.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

The Exile Experience: Journey to Freedom is a pictorial account of the struggles that the Cuban exile community has endured since Fidel Castro's rise to power, and the successes they have achieved in the United States. Having covered the Cuban exile community and its struggle for freedom extensively throughout the years, Miami Dade College and The Miami Herald Media Company now present this journalistic chronology, which showcases the spirit and accomplishments of the Cuban American community. The permanent exhibition is housed at the College’s National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower, itself central to the story of Cubans in the United States.

MDC’s Freedom Tower was operated by the U.S. Government as a reception center for Cuban refugees from 1962 to 1974. “The building is significant because it represents the important story of the Cuban exodus to America and resettlement during the Cold War,” reports the U.S. Department of the Interior, which has also called the Freedom Tower the “Ellis Island of the South.” Though it operated in that capacity for only 12 years, the building has become an icon representing the faith that democracy brought to troubled lives, the generosity of the American people and a hopeful beginning that assured thousands a new life in a new land.

Gary Nader Proudly Presents Fernando Botero Sculpture Exhibit

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM - English

Gary Nader is pleased to present a Fernando Botero Sculpture Exhibit at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood from Feb. 9 through April 9. The exhibit was curated by Nader to showcase the modern master’s significant contributions to the modern and contemporary art world.

Fernando Botero was born in Medellin, Colombia in 1932. His signature style portrays people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece. He is considered the most recognized and quoted living artist from Latin America. In 1960, Botero took up residence in New York and, in the same year, won the Guggenheim National Prize for Colombia. Botero’s work has been featured in several solo and group exhibitions at Gary Nader’s galleries. Botero has exhibited his work at the Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen, the Maillol Museum in Paris, the Palazzo Benezia in Rome, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and the National Museum in Bogotá, among others. Botero lives and works in Paris, Monte Carlo, Pietrasanta, and New York.

Disillusionment – the land of the shadows

Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017 at 7:00 PM - English

Lecture: Friday, February 3 at 6pm

Alex Trimino graduated with her MFA in visual arts from FIU in 2012, she works in textile and electronics activate space with totems of fluorescent light, color and crochet. Her work challenges notions on gender roles, craft and art. This exhibition is perfect for the Washington Gallery because of its public arts component; it allows the pedestrians on the street to interact with the artwork without entering the gallery.

Artist statement:

Old ways and new technologies commingle together; exploring social views on civilization and gender. Neon and fluorescent lights coexist with crocheting and fibers historically associated with gender division and traditional societies, re-contextualizing the traditional use of colloquial crafts.

Illuminated totem poles, covered in crocheting and found objects reveal similarities between contemporary materials used (Plexiglas, neon and fluorescent lights) and the colloquial crafts used (crocheting, knitting and weaving); while silhouette cutouts transform and duplicate the shadows the totems cast, emphasizing that reality is a shared hallucination.

About Disillusionment – the land of shadows

Disillusionment – the land of shadows explores how we connect to reality today. This election sought to normalize and perpetuate racism and a culture of misogyny, consequently fragmenting what we thought was reality into surrogate illusions and shadows, leaving us with disillusionment in awakening from a dream in the land of shadows.
