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

Friday, Sep 29, 2017 various times - English

In 1954, photographer Berenice Abbott journeyed along the length of U.S. Route 1, capturing the road, its towns, and inhabitants. From Florida motels made from buses to Maine potato farmers, Abbott memorialized communities up and down the East Coast.

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

Friday, Sep 29, 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.

Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU Irene Williams: Queen of Lincoln Road

Friday, Sep 29, 2017 various times - English

Miami Beach has always been home to many colorful people. One of them was Irene Williams. Every workday for more than 40 years, Irene dressed in one of her vibrant fashions from a collection of more than 100 handmade hats and outfits, walked to her small office on Lincoln Road. One morning in 1995, Irene was spotted by Eric Smith, a New York City designer, entrepreneur, and founder of E.G. Smith Socks.

A friendship ensued and over the next decade, Eric documented on film Irene's outsider couture, and the heartfelt affection they shared and produced an award winning documentary titled Irene Williams Queen of Lincoln Road. When Irene died in 2004, she left her colorful collection of hats, photos and letters to Smith which are included in the exhibit. In addition to the Irene Williams Collection, the exhibition will include hats and photos on loan from Isabel Bernfeld Anderson and George Neary. The exhibit is sponsored by Robert Arthur Segall Family Foundation, Isabel Bernfeld Anderson, Merle & Danny Weiss, and Pauline Winick.

Haroon Mirza’s ACIDGEST at PAMM

Friday, Sep 29, 2017 various times - English

Haroon Mirza (b. 1977, London) is a multimedia artist who works with audiovisual materials, electronic equipment, amplifiers, and found objects to create immersive environments and kinetic sculptures. His work amplifies phenomena that are often imperceptible such as electricity and seeks to create or distort the relationship between optics and acoustics, giving unexpected visual and sensorial analogs to what we hear. Mirza uses a particular visual and material vocabulary to modify architectural spaces, including colored neon and sculptural acoustic foam, creating installations that offer a precise, highly mediated experience of sound and light.

Show more >>

PAMM has commissioned Mirza to produce a new work for its double-height gallery. For this project, A C I D G E S T, he will create a specialized technical system that will transmit an electrical current through speakers and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that act in coordination with one another so that different colors are activated by corresponding noise frequencies. This system will produce a choreographed experience of sound and light based on a concrete poem the artist has created, which serves as a score for a dynamic installation that redefines our phenomenological experience of the space.

Spots, Dots, Pips, Tiles: An Exhibition About Dominoes

Friday, Sep 29, 2017 various times - English

Spots, Dots, Pips, Tiles: An Exhibition About Dominoes showcases artworks that reflect the multilayered aspects of the domino game, a tradition that is heavily practiced in the American South, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Dominoes, a popular game with origins dating to ancient China, has a discernible aesthetic and political vantage point, and offers a look into specific communities that grow around the domino table. Some of the works in the exhibition directly reference dominoes; others provide a conceptual relationship to the game or address the subject in terms of larger human conditions, such as, political struggles, religious beliefs, and racial stereotypes. The show features over 19 international contemporary artists working in a variety of media, including painting, mixed-media, sculpture, installation, and video. Collectively, these artists approach the game of dominoes its history, community, strategy, and aesthetics—as metaphor and practice.

Ali Smith: Electric Prism

Friday, Sep 29, 2017 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM - English

Ali Smith (b. 1976, Newport Beach, CA) uses the canvas as an open space of exploration; an empty landscape that serves as the starting point for investigation into abstract terrains. Her work illustrates the existential plight the artist has in finding new, personal meaning and direction within the field of abstract painting. The recurring visual trope of Rococo-like excess and abundance performs a celebratory re-assertion of the endless possibilities available to the painter. Smith weaves together fleeting thoughts, moments of time, the fine lines between fact and fiction and subjective desires within her canvases, which in turn present the hopeful attitude of the artist, in the face of the realities of life and experience.

Smith received her MFA from California State University, Long Beach (CA), and has since had solo exhibitions in New York, Houston and Los Angeles. She has been included in numerous group shows, including those at the Laguna Art Museum (CA), Irvine Fine Arts Center (CA), Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock (CA), and Riverside Museum (CA). Her work is included in the collections of the Laguna Art Museum (CA), Frederick R. Weisman Foundation (CA), Progressive (OH). The artist lives and works in Long Beach, CA.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Friday, Sep 29, 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.

International Artist Series: Annette Turrillo

Friday, Sep 29, 2017 at 12:00 PM - English

Venezuelan-French artist Annette Turrillo is featured in this solo exhibition , titled Sublimations, curated by art historian and professor Dr. Carol Damian. Annette Turrillo focuses on themes of reflection and retrospection as she observes the human condition and its place in the universe.Sublimations is based on Turrillo’s personal concerns and research. She focuses on the power of awareness by means of art through reflection of the individual (introspection), the onlooker’s spiritual essence, and consequently, the projection of his or her surroundings, in society and life. The plastic element is transformed into densely knitted interpretations, in which the spectator participates.

Show more >>

With this exhibition, she intends to give recognition to the brave, hard-working women that have contributed to our current conception of the contemporary woman. She focuses her work on the continuous gender equality advancements that have been achieved and those that have yet to come. She hopes that in doing so she is able to redeem the women that had previously been overlooked by history due to societal constraints and gender based obstacles. Keeping this history of sublimation on the forefront of public consciousness, ensures that new generations of women have even more opportunities to develop their roles completely in society.

Between the Real and the Imagined: Abstract Art from CINTAS Fellows

Friday, Sep 29, 2017 at 12:00 PM - English

Between the Real and the Imagined: Abstract Art from CINTAS Fellows explores the language of abstraction and its many variants represented in the work of Cintas Visual Arts Fellows across different temporal moments and generations. The selected works range from the pioneering geometric abstraction of Rafael Soriano, Mario Carreño and José Mijares executed in Cuba in the 1950s, the concrete art of Carmen Herrera and constructive experiments of Zilia Sánchez produced in the diaspora, to the hard-edge abstraction of Fernando García from the 1980s and the more recent multi-dimensional installations by Cuban-Americans María Martínez-Cañas, Leyden Rodríguez Casanova, and Vanessa Díaz, to name only a few. Together, the works featured in this exhibition each with their distinct pictorial propositions and conceptual approaches to form, space and materiality map how modern and contemporary artists in Cuba and in the diaspora have engaged with and challenged non-representational practices from mid-century to the present.

John Dunkley: Neither Day nor Night

Friday, Sep 29, 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.

Youssef Nabil: I Saved My Belly Dancer

Friday, Sep 29, 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.

The Open House: Living Space Exposed

Friday, Sep 29, 2017 various times - English

The Bakehouse Art Complex is pleased to announce the opening of “The Open House: Living Space Exposed” curated by Claire Breukel and on view in the Swenson Gallery. With this exhibition BAC continues its Baked-in-House series - a program aimed at showcasing recent work by one or more outstanding resident artists, often in dialogue with other creatives outside our organization.

The Open House brings together Bakehouse resident artist, Troy Simmons, and Tom Scicluna. In the exhibition, Simmons proposes structural anomalies that are at once uniform in their concrete and aluminum construction, yet protruding, geometrically twisted and formally ‘different.’ Inviting closer inspection, Simmons’ works instigate interaction by seductively revealing bands of colorful neon enamel, which subtly position the human body within these reinvented urban forms. Simmons opens a door and a window for discovery.

Show more >>

Purposefully overturning procedural behavioral Tom Scicluna finds objects from the everyday and recontextualizes them by proposing situations and constructs that displace, disrupt and renew these objects. In this way, Scicluna brushes up against institutional norms by rethinking traditional formats of exhibition and methods for processing art. Politely, humorously, and often times importantly uncomfortably, Tom Scicluna intervenes.

“We are thrilled to enjoy Claire’s subtle curatorial brilliance in this season-opening show featuring one of our own, Troy, and one of my favorite locally-based artists, Tom Scicluna. Our Baked-In-House program is a dynamic opportunity for a Bakehouse artist’s work to be placed in a new context, provoking dialogues that create new opportunities” states Bibi Baloyra, Executive Director at the Bakehouse Art Complex.

FIU Miami Beach Urban Studios Wild. Life.

Friday, Sep 29, 2017 various times - English

Curated by Belaxis Buil.

Free and Open to the Public.
Wild. Life. presents Michael Gray's collection of monotype prints of Florida flora that he calls Epiphyte. Inspired by Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights (1495-1505), the images may be understood to illustrate a battle ground, a disarray of chaotic madness, where leaves take over the horizon and reduce signs of any other life form. The intimate portrayal of war between the foliage turns becomes, for some viewers at least, a protective shield. The environmental context is lost as the viewer is faced with a pattern of incessant wrangle-perhaps reflective of our own internal wars, and how humans, who are also part of this nature, turn on each other.
