North and South: Berenice Abbott's U.S. Route 1

Saturday, Jun 24, 2017 various times - English

During the trip, Abbott shot more than four hundred 8x10-inch photographs, and over two thousand smaller images using her Rolleiflex camera, representing her largest portfolio of photographs devoted to a single subject.

North and South will bring together a selection of 50 works from this series to present a singular visual summary of American life during the mid-1950s.

Hot Couture: Florida Jews on the Fashion Scene

Saturday, Jun 24, 2017 various times - English

Floridian Jews have been involved in all aspects of the fashion industry, designing, manufacturing, dressing and influencing the local and international scene in all types of clothing from beachwear to ball gowns.

From the now- 96 year-old designer Sylvia Whyte, whose children's clothing brought the likes of Debbie Reynolds, Frank Sinatra and Zsa Zsa Gabor flocking to her Miami Beach store in the 1950s, to an 11 year-old entrepreneur now embarking on her first clothing line incorporating her grandfather's artwork into her designs, Floridian Jews have created a large footprint on this industry.

With iconic brands like Perry Ellis and Chico's; climate-influenced guayaberas, golf shirts and Florida furriers; funky wearable art and bikinis and belts made out of local snakeskins, this exhibit will surprise and inspire you.

It Takes A Village, People! - Coral Gables

Saturday, Jun 24, 2017 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

“Village People, now is the time…Village People, your fight is mine…” 40 years ago Randy, Victor, Felipe, David, Glenn and Alexander sang those words as a call to action to an irresistible disco beat. They were the embodiment of what was attractive to the gay eye. With fabulous songs – YMCA, Macho Man, In The Navy, You Can’t Stop the Music – they hit the party scene and have not stopped making us get up and dance ever since, transcending the lines between gay and straight with their music.

Show more >>

The Village People shared the world with the likes of Queen, ABBA, The Bee Gees, Donna Summer and Billy Joel during an amazing decade that saw the birth of the Gay Liberation Movement and helped us, through their music, take our place in the sun.

This concert pays tribute to The Village People on their milestone anniversary and to the music of the decade that helped us become a village.

Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water

Saturday, Jun 24, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

MDC Museum of Art + Design presents Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water, a visual autobiography depicting childhood experiences and recollections of Cuba by artist Eduardo del Valle consisting of a new series of thought-provoking photographs never exhibited before.

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.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Saturday, Jun 24, 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.

Show more >>

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.

Khedoori frequently depicts architectural forms from distanced perspectives, rendering commonplace objects and spaces familiar yet decontextualized. In recent years, she has transitioned from paper to canvas, producing smaller­-scale works that hover between representation and abstraction. Like her earlier compositions, these works are enigmatic and acutely detailed; in an art world awash with rapidly moving images and saturated colors, Khedoori remains committed to the silent, slow, and exacting process of working by hand. The exhibition is the first major museum presentation of Khedoori’s new paintings and her first survey in fifteen years.

John Dunkley: Neither Day nor Night

Saturday, Jun 24, 2017 various times - English

This exhibition presents the work of John Dunkley (b. 1891, Savanna-la-Mar, Jamaica; d. 1947, Kingston), widely considered to be one of Jamaica’s most important historical artists. John Dunkley: Neither Day nor Night will include paintings from the 1930s and ‘40s alongside a smaller selection of carved-wood and stone sculptures. Dunkley’s paintings are defined by their distinctive dark palette, detailed imagery—often landscapes––and psychologically suggestive underpinnings. His intimate sculptures reflect more figurative elements—people and animals—and offer insights into his unique iconography. Although his work is well represented in the collection of the National Gallery of Jamaica, Kingston, as well as in international private collections, Dunkley has not been the focus of a solo exhibition since the 1970s, and never before outside Jamaica. This exhibition represents a unique opportunity to bring together a substantial grouping of his work and to create an international context for its study.

John Akomfrah: Tropikos

Saturday, Jun 24, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM - English

John Akomfrah: Tropikos presents the artist’s 2016 film Tropikos, which examines the original encounter between European explorers and the people of Africa in the 16th century. This large-scale video installation was filmed in the Tamar Valley and Plymouth, England—a location with significant, if often forgotten, ties to the slave industry: it is where the first British slaving excursion set sail for Africa. The region and its waterways would become England’s primary hub for the slave trade, serving as the point of departure for numerous major expeditions and as the base for the industry’s bureaucratic functions.

Youssef Nabil: I Saved My Belly Dancer

Saturday, Jun 24, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM - English

Featuring actors Salma Hayek and Tahar Rahim, I Saved My Belly Dancer is a lavish production by Youssef Nabil (b. 1972, Cairo; lives in New York) filmed in high definition with a color treatment reminiscent of hand-tinted vintage photographs. The film is a hypnotic allegory of Egypt’s cultural heritage and the shifting perceptions of the position of women in the region. In the Middle East, belly dancing was once considered a high art form, and would be regularly performed at weddings and other kinds of celebrations. In recent years such elegant customs—together with their associations with a relatively liberal attitude toward women—have been increasingly placed under threat by the rise of conservative religious sentiments on one hand and the objectification and sexualization of women within commercial imagery on the other. In this sense, the film laments the fading of once-proud and meaningful traditions amid the changing ideological circumstances of the artist’s native country. At the same time, it hints at the possibility that such legacies may yet survive both in memory and in exile.
