The South Motors Jazz Series presents David Sanborn

Saturday, Nov 17, 2018 at 8:00 PM - English

One of the most commercially successful American saxophonists for six decades and counting, David Sanborn is a jazz musician at heart, but has transcended genres and musical boundaries throughout his entire career. Rolling Stone says, "Among the great saxophonists of the past four decades, David Sanborn has earned an identity all his own. He’s jazz, he’s funk, he’s soul, he’s pop, he’s blues, he’s rock. Most remarkably, he excels in each of these genres with a voice that is forceful and tender, sensuous and subtle." Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight gold albums and one platinum. He continues to be one of the most active musicians of his genre and an inspiration to countless other musicians. Returning to his passion for jazz, Sanborn recently assembled a stunning program of straight-ahead jazz tunes for his new quintet. Looking forward to sharing his approach and interpretation on a new album in 2018, Sanborn is excited to collaborate and feature a band of saxophone, trombone, keys, bass, and drums.

Frankenstein

Saturday, Nov 17, 2018 at 12:00 PM - English

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation. The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world. Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Art Exhibit: Gustavo Novoa

Saturday, Nov 17, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 AM - 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.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Saturday, Nov 17, 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.

The Writing on the Wall

Saturday, Nov 17, 2018 various times - English

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.

Relational Undercurrents

Saturday, Nov 17, 2018 various times - 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.

Show more >>

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.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species

Saturday, Nov 17, 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.

Show video >>
Show more >>

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.

Connectivity

Saturday, Nov 17, 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.

Titled “Depicting Hemingway: Guy Harvey Sketches The Old Man and the Sea,”the exhibit is based on the tale of Santiago the fisherman and his battle with the marlin in Ernest Hemingway’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The Old Man and the Sea was introduced to Dr. Harvey by his mother when he was 11 years old and it instantly fascinated him, becoming his biggest inspiration to become an artist and begin depicting marine life. The 59 pieces were drawn by Dr. Harvey over the course of a year while attending boarding school England as a teenager.According to Dr. Harvey, the range of media he uses today was all developed from this illustrative pen and ink style.

Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children 6 and up, and free for children under 6. Monroe County students also receive complimentary admission with ID and all other students can enter the museum for $5.

The Custom House Museum is one of four museums stewarded by Key West Art & Historical Society, all of which are listed in TripAdvisor’s “10 Best Museums in Key West.”
