Loop Diaries: An Immersive Exhibition

Next date: Dec 6, 2021 - click here for time schedule - English

An immersive exhibition featuring video vignette.

The Contemporary Art Modern Project is thrilled to announce our November exhibition, Galician artist Bego M. Santiago's Loop Diarios projected onto the gallery's walls.

The series functions as a childhood diary re-written by a present-day adult, forging an intimate and sincere reflection on the mundane phenomena that constructs the Self: family, society, and experience.

The Berlin-based artist's interdisciplinary production specializes in the use of light as a pictorial and sculptural tool. Santiago's work explores the feedback between the real and the represented, through playing with dichotomies such as: real/false, presence/absence and original/copy. Light is for her a tool of simulation and optical illusion capable of giving life to inanimate objects, blurring the boundaries between reality and representation, presence and absence.

Loop Diaries, projected onto the walls of The CAMP Gallery like never before, will be Santiago's first solo exhibition in Miami.

MOAD Presents Exhibition Tour with Loriel Beltran

Saturday, Jan 22, 2022 from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

Join Loriel Beltran as he leads a tour of his exhibition Constructed Color at the Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) at Miami Dade College (MDC). The show inaugurates MOAD Projects, a new series of exhibitions that features work by Miami-based artists. Beltran will share insights about his paintings and creative process. He will also delve into what it means for him to make paintings in Miami, an international city located at the crossroads of multiple modernist legacies of Latin America and post-war and contemporary painting in the United States and Europe.

The Miami-based Venezuelan American artist and alumnus of the New World School of the Arts at MDC, creates paintings by affixing slabs of layered paint, sliced from blocks hardened in boxlike molds, to panels, resulting in innovative abstract works of dazzling opticality and metaphorical density.
