Non-Fiction

Saturday, May 25, 2019 various times - English

Juliette Binoche and Guillaume Canet reunite with acclaimed director Olivier Assayas for this wry, sly, seductive tale of sex, lies and literature. Set amidst the bohemian intelligentsia of the Parisian publishing world, Non-Fiction traces the romantic and emotional fallout that results when a controversial writer begins blurring the lines between fact and fiction, using his real-life love affairs - including a passionate fling with an actress (Binoche) who happens to be married to his editor (Canet) - as fodder for his explosive new novel. Balancing dry wit with keen observations on the tensions between art, commerce, and technology, Non-Fiction is a buoyant, breezy delight from a master director at his most effortlessly brilliant.

Doubt

Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English

Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for “Best Play,” all elements come invigoratingly together like clockwork in John Patrick Shanley’s provocative play Doubt, a gripping story of suspicion cast on a priest’s behavior that is less about scandal than about fascinatingly nuanced questions of moral certainty. Doubt is blunt yet subtle, manipulative but full of empathy for all sides, and a powerful drama that represents the eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences

Where The Oceans Meet Opening Reception

Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 6:00 PM - English

This compelling transnational exhibition of modern and contemporary art considers how crossing borders continues to shape our world.

The international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition investigates the ways borders form identities and negotiate imaginary spaces. The artists' inquiries range across mediums and genres, and attempt to answer urgent questions that concern us all today.

Show more >>

Where the Oceans Meet stems from the pioneering literary, anthropological, and philosophical work of two Caribbean writers, the Cuban painter, scholar, and ethnologist Lydia CABRERA (1899-1991) and the Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Edouard GLISSANT (1928-2011). Embodied by the works of art in the exhibition, their ideas explore how art can think and break through barriers of history, geography, and culture.

Where the Oceans Meet will offer a platform for questioning colonial and modern thought, and placing it into perspective. Its themes resonate in Miami, a city where oceans meet, so often imagined as a crossroads of the Americas and a space of transition par excellence.

The exhibition is curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal.
