Dara Friedman (b. 1968, Bad Kreuznach, Germany; lives in Miami) uses everyday sights and sounds as the raw material for film and video artworks that reverberate with emotional energy. A former student of the famously rigorous Austrian filmmaker Peter Kubelka, Friedman engages tendencies in 20th-century experimental cinema that call for a radical reduction of the medium to its most essential material properties. The artist crafts each of her films with meticulous care, making precise choices with respect to camerawork, film stock, and editing strategy while taking into consideration every aspect of the presentation of her work in physical space, from the scale of the images to the specific qualities of the playback equipment. In place of linear storylines, her films typically portray straightforward gestures and situations that she has planned out in advance and that unfold according to predetermined rules and guidelines.

Yet for all of Friedman’s strenuous logic and discipline, her approach remains unabashedly sensual and emotive. Bearing rich imagery and a strong emphasis on bodily experience, her films generate moments of high-pitched, cathartic intensity as well as serene, even euphoric interludes. In recent years, Friedman has increasingly explored the charged boundaries between the public and private spheres, working with musicians, dancers, actors, and other individuals selected through casting calls and auditions. These experimental collaborations dovetail with the artist’s longstanding endeavor to use her work as a means of engendering empathy while pounding on the walls that separate viewer from subject, artist from audience, self from other.

Spanning more than 20 years of creative production, this immersive exhibition is Friedman’s first mid-career survey, and the largest presentation of her work to date.

On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 various times - English

On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection

This exhibition explores the diverse cultural and emotional landscapes of recent Cuban art. It presents a selection of works by Contemporary Cuban artists donated to the museum by Jorge M. Pérez, the majority from a recent gift of over 170 pieces, as well as works previously gifted to PAMM in 2012, and several recent acquisitions. The selection includes multiple images of the horizon, and these works serve to structure the conceptual framework of the exhibition. The diverse meanings placed on the horizon—which include it as a symbol of longing, containment or desire—radiate across the additional works on view. Produced in various media, such as, painting, sculpture, drawing, video, and installation, these contemplative artworks help generate a discussion regarding the specificities of Cuba’s current physical, social, and political environment, as revealed through each artist’s personal experience and unique aesthetics. This exhibition is made possible by the generosity of Jorge M. Pérez. On the Horizon is presented in three distinct, yet interconnected “chapters,” with a new chapter opening every three months. Chapter 2: Abstracting History is on view untilJanuary 7, 2018.

On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection is organized by PAMM Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander. This exhibition is presented by City National Bank with additional support provided by Cidade Matarazzo, Crystal & Co., and Pomellato.

Firebird

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 at 2:00 PM - English

Join MTT and the NWS Fellows for an evening of fantasy and magic. Igor Stravinsky, who always prioritized creative freedom over any controversy left in its wake, conjured an explosive score for The Firebird, one as enchanting as the folklore it paints. MTT leads a rare performance of the full ballet score, wickedly challenging and colorful from its triumphant hymns to the primal Infernal Dance. Hailed as a musician of “magisterial elegance, power and insight,” Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes sparkles in Claude Debussy’s rarely-heard, yet stunning Fantaisie. Stravinsky’s Scènes de Ballet is an effervescent “portrait of Broadway” perfectly capturing the glitzy, witty and playful excitement of The Great White Way.

This concert is sponsored in part by Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation and William Strong.

Citi Pre-Concert Chat on Saturday, February 17: Join NWS Fellows for a free Pre-Concert Chat in SoundScape Park! These half-hour chats begin one hour prior to the performance. There will not be a pre-concert chat on Sunday, February 18.

If I Forget by Steven Levenson

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 various times - English

GableStage at the Biltmore presents the Southeastern premiere of If I Forget by Tony-Award winner Steven Levenson.

A powerful tale of a Jewish-American family and a culture at odds with itself. Three siblings reunite to celebrate their father’s 75th birthday. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, they negotiate — with biting humor and razor-sharp insight — how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning.”Passionate and provoking! Brainy in its arguments and visceral in its emotions!” – New York Times

The American Revolution

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 at 12:00 PM - English

History in 50 minutes--seven actors, two feet off the ground, share 21 square feet of space to recreate the entire American fight for independence from Lexington to Yorktown. Using only the actor's bodies, voices and (pantomimed) cannons, the show evokes an epic period in American history. Combining tongue-in-cheek humor with a dash of derring-do, The American Revolution displays Theatre Unspeakable's rowdy brand of bare-boned and imaginative physical theater.

Young Marx

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 at 12:00 PM - English

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Recorded from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors. 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.

Reservoir Dolls

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 at 2:00 PM - English

The East Coast Premiere of Reservoir Dolls Kicks Off 2018 for Outré At the Pompano Beach Cultural Center.

This adaptation of Tarantino’s iconic film masterpiece Reservoir Dogs is reimagined by Erika Soerensen with an all-female cast.

Reception / Media Night: February 3, 2018. Tickets: $39 adults, $19 students and industry.

Warning: This production is for mature audiences only (17+) and contains strong language, violence, sexual themes, and prop weapons.

Show more >>

The Outré Theatre Company is proud to announce the East Coast premiere of Reservoir Dolls, inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s film and adapted by Erika Soerensen. This reimagining of the classic 1992 indie film recasts its characters as women, examining how our culture treats violence differently depending on the gender of the perpetrator. Outré’s production is also the first time that the production has been directed by a woman, in this case Assistant Artistic Director Shannon Ouellette.

“In this adaptation, Soerensen asks how we would regard the foul-mouthed, violent criminals of Tarantino’s film if those same criminals happened to be women,” said Shannon Ouellette, Outré's Assistant Artistic Director and the director of the production. “By doing this, Soerensen lays bare our society’s attitudes towards strong women, and towards this passive misogyny which often treats women as if they’re just fragile playthings, rather than individuals with their own demons and violent natures.”

When an underworld boss gathers six criminals for a diamond heist, both she and they expect the job to be an easy one, a simple robbery with a very lucrative payout. But when the heist goes very, very wrong, and the women become convinced that there is a rat in their midst, suspicions and tempers run rampant, and longtime friendships and alliances become increasingly frayed.

The cast includes:

Elizabeth Price (Ms. White): Elizabeth Price recently appeared in New City Players’ Twelfth Night, Island City Stage’s Son, Theatre Lab’s This Random World, and Outré’s The Normal Heart.

Clark Gable Slept Here

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 at 2:00 PM - English

Main Street Players presents Clark Gable Slept Here, the second show of the 2017-2018 season.

This dark comedy by local playwright Michael McKeever is two doors short of a farce. The fast-paced play is a peek behind the curtain of life in the Hollywood fast lane. The show takes place in a suite at the classic hotel Chateau Marmont on the night of the Golden Globe Awards. What transpires is a bleak, tragic and unapologetically hilarious look at what the movers and shakers of Tinsel Town are willing and able to do in order to keep and preserve their secrets and the status quo of the Hollywood mystique and lifestyle. The show is directed by John Ferry, with Dennis Lyzniak as the production manager.

The cast is as follows:

Jarrod "Hilly" Hilliard: Clint Archambault

Morgan Wright: Sandi Stock

Small Mouth Sounds

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 various times - English

  • Written by Bess Wohl
  • Directed by Rachel Chavkin

Small Mouth Sounds is a funny and ingenious new play that asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us. The New York Times says, “it leaves you moved, refreshed and even enlightened.” And New York Magazine declares “it deserves to be seen and re-seen!” It’s a theatrical experience and an emotional journey you will never forget.

In the quiet of the woods, six strangers embark on a silent retreat. As they struggle to confront their internal demons, their vows of silence collide with their achingly human need to connect. Written by Drama Desk Award winner Bess Wohl (Pretty Filthy) and directed by Obie Award winner Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), Small Mouth Sounds is “a remarkable range of pain, joy and hope in 100 deeply engrossing minutes.” (Time Out New York)

Dawoud Bey: The Birmingham Project

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 various times - English

Join us for the opening reception for Dawoud Bey: The Birmingham Project.

Summary of Exhibition

In 2013, fifty years after the infamous attack on the African-American 16th Street Baptist Church and the ensuing violence throughout the city of Birmingham, Dawoud Bey created a project to commemorate the children who were killed or injured. Over the course of seven years, Bey developed The Birmingham Project—a series of vibrant and poignant portraits of current residents who represent the ages of the victims when they died, as well as the ages they would have been if they were still alive. The Birmingham Project required the participation of many who lived through the bombing as well as those for whom its historical significance marks their city as a place where the Civil Rights movement gained immediate urgency.

Show more >>

The exhibition is part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Exhibition Series, which addresses issues of race, diversity, social justice, civil rights, and humanity to serve as a catalyst for dialogue and to enrich our community with new perspectives.

This exhibition was sponsored by the College of Arts, Sciences & Education, Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work, Communication, Architecture + The Arts, Alumni Relations, and Multicultural Programs and Services.

This exhibition was organized by the Birmingham Museum of Art.

Haroon Mirza’s ACIDGEST at PAMM

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 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.

International Artist Series: Juan Antonio Guirado

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 at 12:00 AM - English

Juan Antonio Guirado’s first exhibition took place in 1956 in Miami and he immediately experienced success. As a result, he would travel the entire world with his art. He sought new and seductive paths to explore which lead to his Intrarealist work. When asked to describe intrarealist painting, Guirado replied: “it is the type of painting that one has to see with the third eye, the eye of the mind.” A mix of Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism, Guirado’s work challenges the viewer to open their mind and eyes, to look within, and evaluate the reality of their surroundings.

In 2006, the Miami-Dade Public Library System invited Miami photojournalist and documentarian Noelle Théard to create a new body of work in response to a series of photographs in the Library's permanent collection by Richard Davenport. Théard responded to the Davenport photographs, which depict black barbershops in Miami during the early 1980s, by revisiting some of the same barbershops in December of 2006. Both sets of photos are included in the exhibition.

Noelle Théard is a photographer and educator who holds a BA in Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin, an MA in African Diaspora Studies from Florida International University and an MFA in Photography from Parsons The New School for Design. She is a cofounder of FotoKonbit, a nonprofit that teaches photography in Haiti in order to provide Haitians with training and the opportunity to tell their own stories through photography.

Richard Davenport was born in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, and was raised in New York City. He returned to North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro to study photography. Through his photography, he has been involved in a variety of teaching and work experiences. In the summer of 1980, he taught a six-week workshop for children at the Miami-Dade Public Library System's Lemon City Branch.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 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.

Opening Reception is on Saturday, January 20 from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM and will be on view through April 2, 2018.

"Intertidal," will kick-off Jan. 20 at noon with a conversation between curator Natalia Zuluaga and the members of A.S.T. (Alliance of the Southern Triangle) formed by London-based artist and writer Diann Bauer, Miami-based artists and architects Felice Grodin and Elite Kedan and New York-based curator Patricia Margarita Hernández.

"Intertidal" offers a multi-disciplinary experience of what Miami might look like as the seas continue to rise. Visitors will be immersed in a series of newly commissioned videos, audio and wall drawings by A.S.T.

This exhibit imagines Miami as an intertidal zone, an area above water at low tide, yet flooded at high tide.

  • How could Miami adapt to live with water?
  • How could the city change its infrastructure, economy and ecology to survive rising tides?

"Intertidal" opens the door to conversations about the future of life in coastal South Florida.
