Tino Sehgal: This Situation

Sunday, Apr 29, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM - English

Tino Sehgal creates works that are constructed situations which question the traditional subject-object relationship of visual art, and in which the interaction between the visitor and the work takes a central position. Sehgal takes language, singing, dancing, and other modes of behavior as his artistic material, often generating immersive artworks that are felt more than they are seen. This Situation (2007) enables a conversation that throws into question our self-image as a society and our roles as individuals within that society.Sehgal is a Berlin-based artist whose work has been widely shown internationally. He won the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2013. Among many other places, Sehgal's work has been exhibited at the Guggenheim in New York, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the 12th Havana Biennial, and the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo in Brazil.

This Situation is part of the Living Together Performance Series, a year-long cross-disciplinary series featuring performance art, installations, film and video screenings, readings, talks, and workshops, reflecting the cultural, social, and political realities of how we live now.

Beethoven and Mendelssohn Piano Trios - Miami Beach Botanical Garden

Sunday, Apr 29, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM - English

German Masters: Beethoven and Mendelssohn Piano Trios.

Beethoven PianoTrio in B-flat major, Op. 97 (1811) and Mendelssohn Piano Trio in D minor, Op. 49 (1839).

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. The Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 97 is commonly referred to as the Archduke Trio, because it was dedicated to Archduke Rudolph of Austria, the son of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor. The trio was written in the Beethoven's "middle period".

Show more >>

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor of the early Romantic period. Mendelssohn enjoyed early success in Germany, where he also revived interest in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and in his travels throughout Europe. His essentially conservative musical tastes set him apart from many of his more adventurous musical contemporaries. Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 49 was completed on September 23, 1839 and published the following year. The trio is one of Mendelssohn's most popular chamber works and recognized as one of his greatest pieces. During the composition of the work, Mendelssohn took the advice of a fellow composer, Ferdinand Hiller, and revised the piano part. This version was in a more romantic, Schumannesque style with the piano given a more important role in the trio. The revised piece was reviewed by Schumann who declared Mendelssohn to be "the Mozart of the nineteenth century, the most illuminating of musicians."

Florencia en el Amazonas

Sunday, Apr 29, 2018 at 2:00 PM - English

An opera star goes down the Amazon on a magical quest.

Inspired by the writings of the great Gabriel García Márquez (One Hundred Years of Solitude), Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas is one of the most lyrical and melodious new operas of the past 30 years, embraced by critics and audiences everywhere it has played. This story of a Brazilian soprano’s emotionally fraught journey back to her homeland offers a brilliant display of magical realism and pushes the operatic form to new limits of imagination. To portray a great artist, FGO has engaged a great artist Ana María Martínez, acclaimed as one of the most beloved Butterflys in recent Metropolitan Opera history.

Dangerous Women

Sunday, Apr 29, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

Selections from the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art

The Old and New Testaments are replete with female characters-good and bad wives, courageous heroines, and deceptive femme fatales. While some women saved their people, were paragons of wifely virtue, or repented their sins to pursue lives of virtue, others were purveyors of sin, harlots or hussies, or deadly temptresses and seductresses. Even if it was through their misbehavior, all of these women – from Judith and Esther to Salome and Mary Magdalene to Delilah, Lot's Daughters, and Potiphar's Wife, to name but a few – shaped biblical history.

Show more >>

Dangerous Women will present more than twenty paintings and etchings from the rich holdings of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. The exhibition explores women of the Bible as portrayed by 16th and 17th-century artists, including Pietro da Cortona, and Jan Saenredam. The exhibition will conclude with a modern and contemporary coda: Robert Henri's sensuous Salome from 1901 and Mickalene Thomas’ Portrait of Mamma Bush I, 2010, a reminder of the tenacious appeal of the subject.

This exhibition has been organized by The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the State Art Museum of Florida, Florida State University, Sarasota, FL.

Support for this exhibition is made possible through the FUNDING ARTS NETWORK, INC. and the Miami-Dade County Tourist Development Council, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.

The Dangerous Women exhibition will be closed to the public on Saturday, March 10 all day, and the entire museum will close at 3:00 pm for an exclusive experience with Seraphic Fire. This is a ticketed event, to purchase tickets today, please click here.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Sunday, Apr 29, 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.

Haroon Mirza’s ACIDGEST at PAMM

Sunday, Apr 29, 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.

Between a view and a milestone

Sunday, Apr 29, 2018 various times - English

Between a view and a milestone presents works by ArtCenter/South Florida’s studio residents that offer contemplative meditations on place. While place can imply a certain level of geographic specificity, determining placehood can be difficult and requires certain physical and intangible elements to make it so. The exhibition’s title refers to a visual device used in landscape painting, in which the painter includes an object in the foreground as a means of framing the view of the landscape. Places call for this sort of demarcation, but they also call for a more emotive connection that is highly dependent upon the individual occupying it. Places are felt as much as they are physically constructed.

Show more >>

In this exhibition, perspective– both spatial and interpretive– plays an important role in framing the places these works address. A video game finds its protagonist navigating through an amorphous landscape that simultaneously inspires awe and dread. A set of sculptures comprised of materials native to Miami’s urban topography are used to further investigate ideas of mobility and labor. A lone figure in a grassy field desperately bobbing for apples to the sound of a mournful poem considers how recent events and contentious histories can oftentimes define the places we live in. The works in this exhibition attempt to understand the evocative nature of place and invite more nuanced explorations of time, memory and identity.
