AfriCOBRA Collective at MOCA

Next date: Jan 23, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

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.

Admission to MOCA is $5, free for MOCA members and North Miami residents.

Bloom - Landscapes Of The Mind

Next date: Jan 23, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Photographer, mixed-media artist, designer, and curator: this is the life of artist Henrique Souza. The Brazilian self-taught photographer began his career in his homeland of Rio de Janeiro at the age of 19, working as a photo assistant for fashion photographers.

In 1999 Souza set his eyes on New York where he starts a new chapter of his life as an artist, and his break came in 2003 when he exhibited his collection of photographs at Fire Island Pines in Long Island, New York.

Show more >>

Inspired by what he describes as the beauty in life, in mundane objects and real people, Souza is a visual lover – a sort of voyeur. Not one to be confined by rules or expectations, his art comes naturally. His work expresses the dichotomy of modern industrial, time-driven lives, alongside humanity. Intimacy, the need for personal space, curiosity and the mischievous nature of man are echoed in his work.

Souza’s works draws upon natural elements found in the fragile world we live in. HIs digital images of landscapes, flora and fauna are transformed with his diverse and masterful photo technics. His creative vision is often displayed in mixed media. Always conveying the mysterious and exotic with charm and wit. He feels he is continually learning and for him, it is all about the journey and the road remains unending. The artist quotes Salvador Dali , the surrealist icon who said “Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it. it is really the surplus of longing that cannot find expression in life or in other ways.” This, for Souza is a succinct description of why he makes art.

A visual storyteller, his photographs are intertwined with an array of unconventional materials, including aluminum, acrylic, Lucite, resin, and canvas. What results are moments frozen in time – an exploration of personal space, both sensual and tactile, and a feeling of displacement – being in and out of his creations.

A Celebration of Contemporary Graphic Artworks by International Women Artists.

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is delighted to announce their newest exhibition, “Engraved”. This collaboration with The Buenos Aires Editing Center in Argentina and the Latin American Art Pavilion Project (LAAP) celebrates the work and artistic development of women in the visual arts field. Forty European and Latin American female artists from Argentina, Austria, Ecuador and Venezuela will present some of their most representative pieces. The exhibition runs January 11-April 5, 2019 and is free and open to the public.

Show more >>

“We kick-off our celebration of International Women’s Month a little early in order to provide ample time to showcase this important exhibition,” said Phyllis Korab, Director of the Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department. “We are honored to once again be partnering with Maria Napoles of the Latin American Art Pavilion (LAAP) on another outstanding project, and we are delighted that Maria has introduced us to Professor Natalia Giacchetta and the impressive works of these talented female artists.”

“Engraved” features artists from different regions of the world who develop their artistic work through techniques such as lithography (printing or calcareous stone), printmaking (engraving in metal or wood), digital drawing and graphics, using mostly paper as a noble support of the representative depth of the images. The artworks will be exhibited following diverse techniques that highlight their individuality: with frames, without frames, as installations, and within showcases generating a climate of strength and subtleties. This demonstrates the virtues and characteristics of each individual work but, as a whole provides the viewer with an intense and harmonious journey into the world of each of these artists.

Paolo Pivi: Art with a View

Next date: Jan 23, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Paola Pivi's artistic practice is diverse and enigmatic. Her oeuvre appears to have been formed through multiple creative minds. Art with a view at The Bass presents new work by the artist, as well as Pivi's anthropomorphic, feather-covered polar bears; canvases of cascading pearls; video showing fish in flight on a passenger jet; and an 80-piece mattress installation. Each piece poses questions and is defined by its openness to interpretation, through the appropriation of cultural symbols.

The Art of Banksy Exhibition is Coming to Miami!

Next date: Jan 23, 2019 - click here for time schedule - 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.

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.

The Spirit of Japanese Craftsmanship (Kogei) and Tea Ceremony

Wednesday, Jan 23, 2019 at 10:00 AM - English

The Consulate-General of Japan in Miami presents The Spirit of Japanese Craftsmanship (Kogei) and Tea Ceremony with renowned Japanese pottery artist Ohi Toshio Chozaemon XI on Wednesday, January 23. Born in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture, Mr. Ohi is the 11th generation in a family of potters known for Ohi Yaki pottery, a traditional style of Raku ware dating back more than 350 years. Mr. Ohi will host the lecture and demonstration at 10 a.m. at Florida International University, located in the College of Business room CBC R233 at 11200 S.W. 8th Street in Miami. Admission is free.

Show more >>

The Ohi method of pottery-making involves using soft clay soil, shaping the piece by hand, coating with a ceramic glaze and firing in a kiln at low temperatures. The pieces are often removed from the kiln while still glowing hot and then allowed to cool in the open air, resulting in fairly porous vessels. The final distinctive glaze is meant to contrast with the powdered green tea used in tea ceremonies.

Mr. Ohi is a proponent of Kogei, a highly-regarded Japanese art form that combines form and function, bringing beauty to everyday objects such as ceramics, lacquer designs, silk fabrics and more. Ohi transcends the physical and cultural boundaries of Kogei by promoting its discourse beyond Japan through his partnerships with universities, cultural organizations and ceramic programs around the world.

Mr. Ohi’s art works have been collected by the David Rockefeller Office in New York, the Rothschild in Sweden, the Huntington Library of Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Musée National de Céramique de Sèvres in Paris, the Jingdezhen Ceramics Museum in China, the Taipei Fine Arts Museum in Taiwan and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Japan.

Currently, Mr. Ohi serves as Advisory Member to the Commissioner of the Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan, Visiting Associate Professor of Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, Advisor for the Shanghai Art Collection Museum International Expert Committee, Visiting Associate Professor of Shanghai Art & Design Academy, Visiting Associate Professor of National Tainan University of the Arts in Taiwan, Visiting Associate Professor of Kanazawa University in Japan and Adjunct Instructor of Tokyo University of Fine Arts.

Mr. Ohi earned his Master of Fine Arts degree from Boston University in 1984. He has received numerous awards and accolades for his work including the Prime Minister of Japan Prize in the 54th Japan Contemporary Craft Exhibition in 2015 and The Minister of Education, Culture, Sports Science and Technology Prize in the 57th Japan Contemporary Arts and Crafts Exhibition in 2018.

Written by Cuban-American playwright and Miami native Carmen Pelaez, this exciting world premiere thrusts us into the world of high stakes art dealing, Cuban politics, and a thrilling pursuit for the truth.

FGO: Frida by Robert Xavier Rodríguez

Next date: Mar 21, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Robert Xavier Rodríguez’s colorful score is a perfect match for the passionate art of the legendary Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Although the artist was wracked by agonizing physical pain and caught up in a stormy marriage to Diego Rivera, the flame that fueled Kahlo’ art just kept burning and never turned to ash. She created fifty-five self-portraits. But no portrait of her is quite as revealing as the one in Rodríguez’s opera. (Sung in English and Spanish with English and Spanish projected translations)
