Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 at 8:00 PM - English

Set at a Catskills resort during the 1960 Labor Day weekend, the script focuses on the shenanigans that abound onstage and behind the scenes at Esther’s Paradise Resort in the Catskills.

This sweetly comic story of Lois and Marge follows two friends from Brooklyn in search of good times and romance over one wild Labor Day weekend. The score showcases 18 Neil Sedaka classics, including "Where the Boys Are", "Sweet Sixteen", "Calendar Girl", "Love Will Keep Us Together", and of course, the chart-topping title song.

Show video >>

Marge and her stagestruck best friend Lois arrive at Esther's Paradise on a vacation that was intended to be Marge's honeymoon — until the groom left her at the altar. Lois attempts to console Marge by setting her up with the resort's handsome, self-obsessed singer Del Delmonaco.

But her plans backfire when Del mistakenly assumes that Marge's father can further his ambitions to become the next teen heartthrob on American Bandstand. Gazing forlornly at Marge from the wings is geekish cabana boy and aspiring songwriter Gabe.

When he isn't entertaining the guests with classic, but still comical Borscht Belt shtick, house comic Harvey secretly carries a torch for widowed resort owner Esther, who is more preoccupied trying to keep her resort open.

Dr Ed Calle Jazz Ensemble

Jazz at MOCA presents The Dr Ed Calle Jazz Ensemble at the Museum of Contemporary Art, 770 NE 125 St, North Miami, FREE. Saxophonist, composer, orchestrator, producer, scholar, professor, and leader Ed Calle is known for his extraordinary ability to sight-read, interpret, and perform vitally any musical style.

Throughout the globe, his peers and colleagues often laud his versatility. For example, while outside the Blue Note in New York City sharing some time with his mentor and friend Michael Brecker, fans asked Michael about being the most recorded saxophonist in history. Becker smiled, look at his pupil, and stated, “thanks, but Ed’s probably on as many or more records. He records a lot for American artists and we don’t see a lot of those credits. Regardless, in my estimation, Ed is likely the most versatile saxophonist on the planet.” Longtime mentor and collaborator Arturo Sandoval more succinctly affirms, “we call Calle – the monster.”

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Calle can be heard on more than 1,200 albums, almost 9,000 singles, and countless movie and television soundtracks both as a soloist, sideman, composer, arranger, conductor, and producer. Dr. Calle is a Latin Grammy Award winner for Best Instrumental Album (2015) with "Dr. Ed Calle Presents Mamblu."

Dr. Calle was awarded the 2015 Miami-Dade County Mayor’s Medal, named www.facultyawards.org 2014 Outstanding Professor at Miami Dade College (college wide), and 2014 United Teachers of Dade Champion Of Education for Arts and Entertainment. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.

As the saying goes, “Nothing lasts forever.” Lives change – circumstances change. Nick reached a time in his life where he felt he wanted to retire and Rich accepted a wonderful job-offer in Boston. We accept these changes with open hearts and wish everyone (including those of us remaining) success. There are no bad feelings, only love.

HENCE, the “refiring”! Jeffrey, Michael and Randi have decided to run with the opportunity to create a new and exciting project called THE WILDFIRE BAND. We added two amazing musicians: Stevan Carter (guitar/vocals), and John Falcone (bass/vocals). These beautiful musicians were selected because of their passion and talent. We fit like a glove!

Woody Guthrie’s American Song

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 at 8:00 PM - English

Bob Dylan wrote that Woody Guthrie’s works “had the infinite sweep of humanity in them.” As he roamed the country singing such songs as “Bound for Glory,” “This Land is Your Land,” and “Hard Travelin’,” Guthrie gave voice to the powerless. Journey with us as we celebrate this great storyteller and visionary.

Woody Guthrie's American Song is an ensemble musical theatre piece adapted from the songs and writings of America's premier folk poet. The show uses Guthrie's own storytelling to create narrative contexts for his music. He said that his work was inspired by this great country and the people who fought to find meaning and fulfillment in their lives as they wandered through.

DESTEFASHIONCOLLECTION 1 To 8

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

The DESTEFASHIONCOLLECTION is an incremental project conceived by the DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art to consider and trouble the boundaries between art and fashion. Each year from 2007 through 2014, DESTE commissioned an artist to survey that season's international fashion offerings and to select five related items with which to execute a capsule project, reflecting on the formal, representational, material and social economies that circulate between art and fashion. Initiated with the Benaki Museum, Athens, in 2014, the exhibition DESTEFASHIONCOLLECTION: 1 to 8 assembles all eight years of capsules and projects.

Adapted by The Bass in collaboration with the DESTE Foundation, the exhibition design in Miami Beach is created by architect Edwin Chan and marks the first time the collection is exhibited in its entirety within the United States. DESTEFASHIONCOLLECTION: 1 to 8 seeks to compare the artists' fashion selections and their interpretations, and to expose the ligatures, relays and exchanges within the components of the collection. Neither solely about fashion nor about art, the exhibition builds on the tensions, affinities, and distance between the two and the problem of contemporariness revealed in their relationship.

Laure Prouvost: They are waiting for you

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

They Are Waiting for You presents Laure Prouvost’s absorbing moving image installations in which she conflates reality with fiction and art with everyday life. Often narrated in the artist’s voice, and interspersed with spoken and written instructions that directly address the viewer, her works confound expectations through a rapid-fire succession of moving images and sounds. Combining painting, sculpture, and found objects, Prouvost draws us into a shifting terrain where we lose our grasp of words and meanings, while the objects around us seem to gain theirs.

Show more >>

Laure Prouvost’s artistic output consistently returns to themes of escape into unfamiliar worlds or imaginings of unexpected alternative environments. A strong narrative impulse propels her practice, resulting in immersive, trans-medial installations with interwoven story lines that combine fiction and reality. Her videos, installations, paintings and tapestries unhinge commonplace and expected connections between language, image, and perception. Stepping away from traditional linear narratives, the artist crafts sensual environments laden with playful mistranslation that open a space for the viewer to grapple with the unstable relationship between imagination and reality.

Prouvost (b. 1978, Croix-Lille, France) lives and works in London, U.K. and Antwerp, Belgium. Recent solo exhibitions include: Softer and rounder so as to shine through your smooth marble, SALT Galata, Istanbul (2017); the wet wet wanderer, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam (2017); Laure Prouvost, wot hit talk, Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art, Gdańsk (2017); And she will say: hi her, ailleurs, to higher grounds…, Kunstmuseum Luzern (2016); GDM-Grandad Visitor Center, Pirelli Hangar Bicocca, Milan (2016); all behind, we’ll go deeper, deep down and she will say:, MMK, Frankfurt (2016); Dropped here and then, to live, leave it all behind, FRAC/ Consortium Dijon (2016); A Way To Leak, Lick, Leek, Fahrenheit, Los Angeles (2016); We Will Go Far, Musée Départemental d’Art Contemporain de Rochechouart (2015), It, Heat, Hit, e-flux, New York (2015), Der Öffentlichkeit — Von Den Freunden Haus Der Kunst, Haus der Kunst, Munich (2015), For Forgetting, New Museum, New York (2014).

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Friday, Jul 27, 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.

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.

Karen Rifas Deceptive Constructions

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

For more than thirty years, Miami-based artist Karen Rifas has amassed a body of work that endeavors to understand and re-imagine space. Well known for her minimal cord and leaf installations, and precise, methodical line drawings, in 2016, Rifas began a focused exploration into the constructive possibilities of color. Employing densely hued shapes and irregular lines, Rifas creates spaces that oscillate between the two- and three-dimensional. Deceptive Constructions surveys this recent body of work for the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in over 10 years. Through variegated floor and sculptural installations, works on paper, and wood panel, Rifas uses a concise language of richly contrasted color to alter our perception of space.

Lincoln Gallery: KINDSIGHT® Robert Zuckerman

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

Opening Reception: Thursday, October 18 at 7:00pm

Hosted by Dr. Mark B. Rosenberg. President of FIU (Florida International University) and Jonathan Plutzik, Owner of The Betsy Hotel

KINDSIGHT® uses images and words together to illuminate and celebrate the richness of everyday life, through random encounters and moments. It recognizes the extraordinary within the ordinary and shows how any encounter or moment can be a story of life’s richness, which is all around us always, within reach, there for the knowing.

KINDSIGHT® in its present form began in 2002 as a series of emails sent to friends and associates. The response was so favorable that the book KINDSIGHT was published in 2005, again with highly favorable response. Since then there have been numerous book signings, television and radio appearances, school visits (from grade school all the way to Harvard University Medical School), and exhibitions, including permanent displays at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles and Google Headquarters in New York City with more on the way.

A second KINDSIGHT® book will soon be published and talks are underway to do KINDSIGHT® projects internationally.

william cordova now’s the time: narratives of southern alchemy

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

william cordova now’s the time: narratives of southern alchemy is the first extensive museum survey of cultural practitioner william cordova (b. 1969, Lima; lives in Miami, Lima, and New York). It presents a selection of works embodying the three main themes that have inspired the work of this celebrated Miami artist for decades: transmission, alchemy, and transcendence. In his nationally and internationally recognized drawings, sculptures, installations, and collaborative projects, cordova collapses linear concepts of time and history to address contemporary notions of displacement. Like an ethnographer, he extensively researches symbols, people and the common threads that binds different cultures to one another, foregoing the boundaries between the past and the present. Then, he uses ephemeral and precarious materials to create elegant works that challenge traditional Western typologies. Striving to create a flexible and critical space for the understanding of our contemporary moment, he builds bridges between various intersecting narratives such as architecture, cinema, literature, and music. This exhibition will be the artist's first ever U.S. survey exhibition and will be accompanied by an extensive museum catalogue, available at PAMM Shop.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

Augmented Reality (AR) Exhibition

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is a virtually interactive, digital exhibition of commissioned works by Miami-based artist Felice Grodin. The series employs the immersive technology of augmented reality (AR), and is accessible to visitors using iOS devices in PAMM’s outdoor areas and in the Padma and Raj Vattikuti Learning Theater on the museum’s first floor. This AR project is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Influenced by geophilosophy—a field of thought shaped by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari that analyzes the relationship between physical and mental territories—Grodin draws on her training as an architect to explore the mutable within landscape, architecture, and her urban surroundings. Felice Grodin: Invasive Species interacts with PAMM’s architecture, evolving and transforming the museum’s environment for the duration of the exhibition.

Featuring a total of four digital works, the show launches with two AR site-specific works—Mezzbug and Terrafish (both 2017)—that engage with and virtually enhance the museum’s building. In Terrafish, Grodin overlaps PAMM’s hanging gardens on the waterfront terrace with the translucent body of a digital species she created, which is suggestive of nonnative jellyfish found in South Florida waters. By drawing on the destructive impact of invasive species and creating a new digital environment, Grodin highlights the transformative and unstable state of our ecosystem, speculating about a not-so-distant future affected by climate change and overtaken by uncanny creatures.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is an augmented reality exhibition that can be viewed via the PAMM App which is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or iPad. iOS 11.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, and newer.

Many Visions, Many Versions

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM - English

Art from Indigenous Communities in India

An unparalleled opportunity for audiences to view rarely seen contemporary art from four major indigenous artistic traditions in India, Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India showcases works from the Gond and Warli communities of central India, the Mithila region of Bihar, and the narrative scroll painters of West Bengal. The exhibition features 47 exceptional paintings and drawings, selected from private collections in the United States and Europe, by 24 significant indigenous artists including Jangarh Singh Shyam, Jivya Soma Mashe, Sita Devi, and Swarna Chitrakar, among others.

Show more >>

Many Visions, Many Versions explores the breadth and variety of cultural traditions in India, revealing a dynamic aesthetic that remains deeply rooted in traditional culture, yet vitally responsive to issues of global concern. Rather than taking a conventional approach to exhibiting these four distinct indigenous artistic traditions by separating them into sections distinguished by tribal and cultural affinities, the curators intentionally display the paintings thematically; accentuating the shared cultural features and contemporary concerns of these four communities that underlies the diversity of the artists’ unique expressive forms, techniques, and styles. The exhibition is divided into four broad categories: Myth and Cosmology, Nature – real and imagined, Village Life, and Contemporary Explorations.

India’s rise as an Asian power on the global scene has focused the world’s attention on the country and its culture. For American audiences eager to know more about Indian art, Many Visions, Many Versions offers an opportunity for viewers of all ages to learn about life and culture in India through these remarkable artworks.

Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India was organized by BINDU modern Gallery and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC and curated by Drs. Aurogeeta Das and David Szanton, with assistance from consulting curator Jeffrey Wechsler.

This exhibition was made possible at the Frost Art Museum FIU by the Jane Hsiao Asian Art Endowment.

Connectivity

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM - English

Through five thematic sections, Connectivity: Selections from the Collection of the Frost Art Museum examines how art objects, created across cultures and during different time periods, relate to one another and to myriad publics. In the first section, the notion of individuality emanates through an examination of portraiture and different representations of the figure. The exhibition explores shifting notions of dress and comparative elements such as gesture and pose. The second section considers belief systems, with an emphasis on myths and organized religions. Abstract languages comprise the third section and offer an opportunity to analyze works that implement color, line, and form in dynamic ways. Whether it is a longing for home or the memory of a cherished street corner, geographic spaces examines how the notion of place serves as a creative catalyst. The final section reflects on this particular moment and evokes the effects of war, climate change, and the general uneasiness of a citizenry during turbulent times.

Connectivity shares recent gifts, celebrates the collection’s treasures, and includes rarely seen objects from the vaults collected over the past 40 years since the museum’s inception in 1978. Select objects featured in the installation will be rotated periodically.

The World’s Game: Fútbol and Contemporary Art

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

This exhibition responds to the multilayered aspects of the game of soccer, or fútbol. Engaging social and political issues or depicting common humanity built around the sport, these artists reflect on the role of the game with society. Coinciding with the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, the international men’s soccer tournament, this exhibition not only commemorates the spectacle of convening nations, but also reflects Miami’s diverse population through the sport’s transnational nature.

The World’s Game: Fútbol and Contemporary Art brings together works by more than 40 artists who share in diverse and intersecting dialogues formed around the sport. Featuring a variety of mediums—including painting, sculpture, photography, and video—the exhibition aims to create an experience in which the viewer employs the universal game to engage with the works of contemporary artists from around the world. Some works venerate soccer by directly referencing its vibrant essence of spectacle, while others explore how the sport acts as a platform for discussions about nationalism and globalism. Collectively, the exhibition celebrates the commonality of human experience through a sport that embodies one of the few common languages worldwide.

Meiro Koizumi: Battlelands

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

Pérez Art Museum Miami is pleased to present a newly-commissioned video work by Meiro Koizumi (b. 1976, Gunma, Japan; lives in Tokyo). Working primarily in video and performance, Koizumi’s works investigate the boundaries between the private and the public, between authentic and staged emotions. They often present everyday situations transformed into sites of tension, involving conflicts between duty and desire. In this new work, Koizumi is working for the first time with non-Japanese subjects, engaging United States veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Five veterans recount traumatic experiences during these past military conflicts, while wearing body-cams that record images of their current domestic spaces and everyday landscapes in the US. The video poetically articulates how these difficult memories of war continually mix with daily life for these individuals, creating emotional, psychological battlelands.

The Words of Others: León Ferrari and Rhetoric in Times of War

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

Originally organized as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA (2017–18), an initiative of the Getty Foundation, this solo exhibition of the Argentinian artist León Ferrari (b. 1920, Buenos Aires; d. 2013, Buenos Aires) focuses on his influential practice from the 1960s to the 1980s. With a particular emphasis on his literary collages—works that incorporate text excerpts from different sources that are reassembled to create an altogether new message—the exhibition features the first full live reading of his seminal 1967 publication Palabras ajenas (The Words of Others)—an important Vietnam-era anti-war piece written in the form of a dramatic script.

Show more >>

Palabras ajenas was Ferrari’s first literary collage, composed as an extensive dialogue among various characters, including President Lyndon B. Johnson, Adolf Hitler, Pope Paul VI, and God. By means of a cut-and-paste exercise, the work associates the atrocities of the Vietnam War, the horrors of Nazism, and the representations of redemption and punishment in religion through quotations selected from history books, literature, the Bible, newspapers, and magazines. The result is a chorus of contemporary voices that recite and interpret the text, which will be read in full in PAMM’s auditorium on February 15 from 1 to 9 pm.

Ferrari’s literary collages were a central element of his practice, yet most remain unpublished or have experienced minimal circulation as limited editions or sketchbooks. This exhibition revisits many of these works, exploring uncharted territory and offering a new perspective on Ferrari’s work while exploring the aesthetic forms of political intervention that emerged in Latin America in the 1960s. This profoundly contemporary project examines the obscenity of war, the ways the media represents conflict, and the role of political and religious discourse in the expansion of Western culture.

Deconstruction

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM - English

Deconstruction: A reordering of life, politics, and art presents the work of twelve Miami-based artists who interrogate varying notions of deconstruction in their work. By taking apart ideas and processes, they create mechanisms through which life, politics, and art can be re-examined. While some of the artists in the exhibition deconstruct current events, personal memory or cultural archetypes, others dismantle norms to suggest alternative societal and personal structures.

In the 1960’s, the philosopher Guy Debord encouraged a “reordering of life, politics, and art” and cautioned against social interaction mediated by images. He presciently asserted that humans did not interact with one another enough in person. Debord perceptively anticipated society’s reliance on small hand-held technology, social media, and the twenty-four-hour news cycle that now permeates daily life. Often read by students of art history, Debord’s declarations were written during a time of political upheaval in France. The contemporary artists represented in this exhibition live in Miami, and while certain works are infused with local realities, global and even utopic questions populate the exhibition. These artists re-order objects and imagery in disparate ways to disrupt and question conventional narratives and ways of seeing.

Femme à la montre by Pablo Picasso

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

Femme à la montre (Woman with a Watch) is a classic example of Pablo Picasso’s highly prized works from 1932. The subject of this painting, Marie-Thérèse Walter, is among his most revered. Between 1927 and 1937 he made countless pictures of Walter, who was his lover at the time and is known as his “golden muse.” The subject of a current museum survey in London—the year 1932—was a particularly fruitful year in Picasso’s production. Most of the works produced in that year are in the collections of major museums in the world’s largest capitals; PAMM is fortunate to be able to present this important work on loan from a private collector.

Show more >>

Born in 1881 in Málaga, Spain, Picasso created the distinct look and line in his paintings and drawings beginning in the early 1900s in Barcelona, and then in Paris, where he settled for good in 1904. The artist appropriated and invented styles from the beginning of the 20th century until his death in 1973, constantly challenging himself and other artists to create something truly new in the spirit of modernism. Influenced by African art he encountered in Paris, Picasso, with fellow painter Georges Braque, originated the style known as Cubism, characterized by geometric shapes that often contort an object or figure as if it is being seen from many different angles at once. He was also an integral part of the foundation of Surrealism, while always working from a representational, tangible image. By any account, Picasso was a prodigious artist and perhaps the most influential of the 20th century. It is estimated that he made 50,000 artworks in his lifetime. Yet it is the quality of his work that has dictated his dedicated place in art history.

Picasso’s voluptuous and sensual pictures of Walter mark a departure from his Cubism phase. This portrait shows the young woman from the front and side, more or less clothed, unlike many of the nudes he made of her. An exposed breast perhaps hints at the erotic quality of many of his portraits of her. Here, he synthesizes the softness of the figure and the hardness of the chair into one full picture. But, it is her single, unmistakably clear eye that gazes out at us that suggests the inner life of the sitter, lover, and muse.

Picasso’s Femme à la montre (1932) is on loan from Emily Fisher Landau. The exhibition of this work of art has been made possible in part by the generous support of Leslie and Greg Ferrero.

Art in Dialogue

Friday, Jul 27, 2018 various times - English

This exhibition presents prints by two prolific artists active in the United States, who are rarely thought of in concert with one another. While Robert Indiana (b.1928–2018) is most often associated with Pop Art and Martin Puryear (b.1941) demonstrates minimalist tendencies, they share an interest in dynamic forms and they are drawn to symbiotic relationships between abstraction and representational subject matter. While both artists are represented here by prints, they also work in other media. Indiana’s paintings and sculptures are an important part of his oeuvre; Puryear’s primary medium is sculpture. This marks the first time the museum has exhibited all of the prints together.
