Art Exhibit: Gustavo Novoa

Next date: Nov 21, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

We are excited to launch our new gallery space with a premier installation of Chilean born Gustavo Novoa. In the early 1970's his one-man shows in New York, Paris, Palm Beach and Beverly Hills established him as a champion of ecology and wildlife preservation. His animals were primitive and painted in lush and colorful backgrounds. Novoa's Book Jungle Fables was sponsored by ArtesMiami, a non profit Literary Foundation. The book enacts the old conflict of Vice and Virtue, but in poetry rhymes. Felines speak eloquently about the old dilemma; right or wrong? Leopards, lions, elephants, monkeys, panthers and even peacocks are all in search of answers. They might not find them, but their poetic interaction finds us very entertained. Signed copies and gicl © es will be available for purchase in the Botanical Boutique.

Connectivity

Next date: Nov 21, 2018 - click here for time schedule - 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 Pompano Beach Cultural Center Presents Documenta II: Religiosity and CivilizationLatin American Art Pavilion Exhibit Reflects All Beliefs in Stunning Paintings, Photographs and Prints POMPANO BEACH, FLA. The Pompano Beach Cultural Center, in collaboration with the Latin American Art Pavilion (LAAP), presents a glorious new exhibit curated by Anaibis Yero, featuring the art work of over a dozen acclaimed photographers, painters and printmakers. Documenta is an annual exhibition the Latin American Art Pavilion has created to be a social message through the visual arts. This year's theme has been "Religiosity - Civilization."

Show more >>

"Religiosity is defined as the religious activity, devotion and belief of each person. It is the inner reflection that each believer offers about what he venerates in a spiritual way," explained Maria Napoles, founder of LAAP.This exhibit addresses broad and complicated issues that affect the social life, the philosophical world and the religious aspect of human beings. Through each artist's vision, viewers are introduced to various religious expressions, scenes and interpretations. The result is a great mosaic of faith that although its rituals are specific to each of the religious beliefs, they all point towards the same goal.The works on display include photographs from many of the artists' travels and feature the baobab tree in Africa, the Naga in Cambodia, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, men in prayer by the Wailing Wall in Israel and Cashmere Muslim women. There are also collaborations between artists from different hemispheres, which reflect the true spirit of the collection."This is a fascinating tour of the world's major religious and cultures," said Phyllis Korab, Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department director. "Through these captured moments in time, we become intimately aware of the beliefs and conditions that define the social and philosophical development of the individual."Featured artists include Luis Castaneda, Carlos Bueno, Ivonette Leite, Mila Mori, Pamella Herpio, Vilma Volcanes, Marta Cabane-Navarro, Luis Cabrera, Guillermo Portieles, Luis Valle, Sheila Fraga, David Velazquez, Diego Cano, Luisa Fernanda Linares and Teo Beceiro.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species

Next date: Nov 21, 2018 - click here for time schedule - 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.

Relational Undercurrents

Next date: Nov 21, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Relational Undercurrents is the first major survey of twenty-first century art of the Caribbean. The archipelago serves as an analytical framework, focusing on thematic continuities in the art of the Caribbean islands. Relational Undercurrents works against traditional understandings of the Caribbean as discontinuous—isolated and beyond comprehension as a result of heterogeneous populations, multiple linguistic traditions, and diverse colonial histories. The exhibition is divided into four sections: Conceptual Mappings, Perpetual Horizons, Landscape Ecologies, and Representational Acts. Each grouping features artists whose works have informed and shaped those themes. Relational Undercurrents includes painting, installation art, sculpture, photography, video, and performance.

Curated by Tatiana Flores, Associate Professor of Art History and Latino and Caribbean Studies at Rutgers University, this exhibition was organized by the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California, as part of The Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, an initiative examining the artistic legacy of Latin America and U.S. Latinos through a series of exhibitions and related programs.

The accompanying catalogue includes essays by curators, critics, and scholars that discuss particular artistic traditions in Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican, and Haitian art, and theorize the broader decolonial and archipelagic conceptual frameworks. The catalogue is coedited by Tatiana Flores and Michelle Ann Stephens, Professor of English and Latino and Caribbean Studies at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.

Support for this exhibition is made possible through the FUNDING ARTS NETWORK, INC.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Next date: Nov 21, 2018 - click here for time schedule - 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.

Hank Willis Thomas and Dr. Baz Dreisinger

A collaborative installation, The Writing on the Wall: Hank Willis Thomas and Dr. Baz Dreisinger presents essays, poems, letters, stories, diagrams, and notes written by individuals in prison around the world, from the United States and Australia to Brazil, Norway and Uganda. During her years teaching in US and international prisons, Professor Dreisinger actively collected the hand-written and typed pieces.

Show more >>

The Writing on the Wall calls attention to the prison crisis in the United States as well as the Western modern prison system, which has spread across the globe. Just as mass incarceration is a growing global phenomenon, The Writing on the Wall constantly evolves and shifts focus based on the material written by those living behind bars in prisons around the world.

This exhibition is a part of the For Freedoms initiative founded by artists Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman. For Freedoms is a platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action for artists in the United States. Inspired by artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941)—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear— For Freedoms uses art to encourage and deepen public explorations of freedom in the 21st century.

We are grateful to members of the Frost Art Museum for their support of this exhibition. The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU receives ongoing support from the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners; the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture and the State of Florida.

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami will present a groundbreaking exhibition celebrating the Chicago-based AfriCOBRA collective, in conjunction with the group’s 50th anniversary. In 1968, artists Jeff Donaldson, Jae Jarrell, Wadsworth Jarrell, Barbara Jones-Hogu, and Gerald Williams founded AfriCOBRA, which stands for African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists. AfriCOBRA’s visual language is defined by the use of text, bright "Cool-Aid" colors, dynamic, gestural markings, and raw, emotive, celebratory images of confident black figures. The vision these artists created went on to define the aesthetic of the Black Arts Movement. This historic exhibition will explore the founders’ individual careers, as well as AfriCOBRA’s philosophy and the impact of the group’s work on subsequent generations.

The exhibition will run from November 25, 2018 – April 7, 2019. Art Basel Miami Beach will take place from December. 6–9, 2018. Artist reception to be announced.

The Art of Banksy Exhibition is Coming to Miami!

Dec 1, 2018 to Feb 24, 2019 - from 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM - English

Miami will welcome the US premiere of “The Art of Banksy,” an acclaimed showcase featuring 80 original works created by, arguably, the most intriguing and talked about artist in modern history. “The Art of Banksy” has already generated excitement in Melbourne, Tel Aviv, Auckland and most recently in Toronto. Now Miami will host this spectacular exhibit in Magic City Studios, a part of the newly imagined Magic City Innovation District (MCID) in the Little Haiti neighborhood.

Show video >>

Banksy, whose identity is the art world’s biggest secret, is an enigmatic artist and world-recognized political activist. His graffiti-influenced stencil technique, often combined with anti-establishment slogans, is immediately recognizable and never fails to generate attention.

The Art of Banksy,” curated by Steve Lazarides, the artist’s former agent, displays the world’s largest collection of Banksy’s works and only features pieces that were created by Banksy for private art collectors. The collection offers original paintings, prints, sculptures and rarely seen pieces. Included in the exhibition is the iconic “Balloon Girl” piece, which was ranked in 2017 as “The United Kingdom’s number one favorite artwork,” the “Flag Wall,” an urbanized take on the famous picture of soldiers raising the U.S. flag at Iwo Jima, and many other pieces, no less compelling and equally thought-provoking.

There is no reason why there shouldn’t be a Banksy hanging in every single major contemporary art museum in the world. He is the most powerful recognized artist of a generation that’s been completely ignored by the establishment thus far. I’m proud that together with the collectors we have been able to assemble this collection now being presented in Miami,” says Steve Lazarides.

The Miami exhibit will be mounted in Magic City Studios at 6301 NE 4th Ave, in an area within Little Haiti known as Miami’s Magic City Innovation District. This prestigious exhibition of originals – all privately owned by collectors – offers a rare opportunity for South Florida to enter Banksy’s world. The 20,000 square foot raw warehouse space was specifically chosen as it resembles spaces where Banksy and Steve Lazarides previously mounted shows together.

Miami, with its thriving visual arts scene, is for us, the perfect city to premiere ‘The Art of Banksy’ in the US,” says Michel Boersma, Senior Vice President Family Entertainment & Theatre, Live Nation. “Together with Steve Lazarides, we have been able to assemble the largest collection of Banksy art ever exhibited, from collectors all over the world, which is fitting for a world-class city like Miami.

We couldn’t be any happier to host this incredible show at Magic City,” said Tony Cho, an MCID founding partner and CEO of Metro 1, the commercial brokerage leading leasing for the project. “This is one more example of the type of world-class art exhibitions and cultural alignments Magic City will bring to the Little Haiti neighborhood. We’re confident this will not only make the neighborhood an international destination, but also create vast opportunities for local businesses and residents.

To celebrate the opening of “The Art of Banksy” in Miami, the exhibition is partnering with the Magic City Innovation District Foundation and local community organizations, to give away 50,000 tickets to local children.

A showcase of this caliber will serve as a unique and accessible educational opportunity for over 50,000 local students,” said Miami Mayor Francis Suarez. “It not only speaks to Miami’s position as a world-class arts and culture destination, but it will also inject life into Little Haiti, giving our residents the chance to benefit educationally in one of our emerging neighborhoods focused on art and innovation.

Worldwide demand for “The Art of Banksy” is off-the-charts. Consequently, the exhibit is scheduled to be in Miami for a limited time only. Citi is the official pre-sale credit card of “The Art of Banksy” exhibit. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, October 23 at 10AM EST until Friday, October 26 at 10PM EST through Citi’s Private Pass program. For complete pre-sale details visit website. General tickets will go on sale beginning Saturday, October 27 at 10:00 a.m. and will be available online at webiste. Tickets prices start at $35.99.

Artist and Floridian Karishma Naran

Dec 6, 2018 to Dec 9, 2018 - various times - English

To Debut Striking Multi-Media Work at Spectrum Miami 2018 as Rising Star

Daytona Beach, Florida-based artist Karishma Naran is poised to take Miami Art Week by storm, showing her new multi-media works at Spectrum Miami as one of their specially selected Rising Artists.

Show more >>

Growing up, the now-33-year old Naran never felt at home no matter where she resided. She explores her diverse background and her upbringing as a Bombay-born, California-raised youth with Indian parents in her depictions, which also speak to a newfound confidence in her sense of self.

Her works are united by their use of different media—incorporating photography colored with watercolor, ink, or acrylic and embellished with materials such as glass, paper collage, and resin. Modern-day ruminations on the multicultural identity of the artist, the works first read as cryptic dreamscapes but layers of meaning soon unfold.

In several works, the artist appropriates imagery of women in the Indian community that she has encountered through social media, layering the works with painting in hues both muted and vibrant. The figures function as muses to the artist, embodying positivity, community, and cultural awareness.

Of I AM Naran notes, “It symbolizes that regardless of what anyone says around you, all that matters is that you know who you are.” In other works, unicorns take center-stage. “The unicorn represents the dream of making it in this country,” explains the artist, noting that those canvases with two unicorns portray a cultural divide and Naran’s sense of confusion over where she belongs.

About the Artist:

Inspired by the eloquent and lively music of the 1960’s and its efficacious voice for Cultural Revolution, and her own heritage as a Bombay-born transplant to America, Karishma, best known as Kavi, began her artistic career in 2003 as a California teenager.

In 2017, she decided she was ready to share her creative vision and start telling her story. Now at 33-years old, she has developed a distinctive style that involves a multi-layered approach, giving her the ability to encapsulate political phrases and poetry into each of her stunning pieces. Her mixed-media art is unpredictable and possesses its own energy. Kavi’s dedication and talent have allowed her to excel as an artist, creating pieces that have generated great interest among collectors and gallerists alike.

Kavi lives in Daytona Beach, Florida with her husband and two children.

Join us for Breakfast in the Park, an official Art Basel Miami Beach event. Each year since 2004, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum has welcomed guests to enjoy a complimentary breakfast, a lecture by a noted sculptor, and guided tours of our Sculpture Park and exhibitions. This event is free and open to the public.

This year, Elizabeth Turk, internationally acclaimed sculptor and MacArthur Fellow will be our featured speaker. Turk is known for transforming her signature medium of marble into strikingly intricate objects that defy convention and challenge our preconceptions of what marble can do. Turk pushes her medium to its limit, creating in each sculpture a provocative tension between the intrinsic strength of the stone and its inherent fragility, while speaking to larger conceptual and spiritual concerns of time, matter, and space. Turk earned her MFA at the Rinehart School of Sculpture, Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. She is the recipient of numerous prestigious national awards, including a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship (2010), a Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation Fellowship (2010), and a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship (2011).
