Ordinary Americans

Thursday, Jan 23, 2020 at 8:00 PM - English

GableStage presents the world premiere of Ordinary Americans, a play by Joseph McDonough based on actual events in the lives of Gertrude Berg and Philip Loeb, stars of television’s groundbreaking sitcom, The Goldbergs, which premiered on CBS in 1949.

The Florida productions were co-produced by Palm Beach Dramaworks, where the show ran in December and now it plays at GableStage from Jan. 18 through Feb. 16.

The play is set in the early 1950s and centers on the tribulations faced by Berg and Loeb as they struggle to save their show, their careers, and their friendship in the face of McCarthyism, anti-Semitism, and the political climate of the country. Berg (1899 – 1966) was a seminal figure in American popular culture in the first half of the twentieth century and one of the most significant artists in television history, yet she is largely forgotten today. She was known to millions around the country as Molly Goldberg, a character she created for her 1929 radio show, The Rise of the Goldbergs, which aired first on NBC and later on CBS until 1945 (with a break between 1934 and 1938). In addition to starring as the matriarch of a Jewish family living in the Bronx, Berg wrote almost every script for the radio show and then for the TV series, which ran through 1957 on different networks. She was also the show’s producer, and the first recipient of an Emmy Award for Lead Comedy Actress.

Ordinary Americans was developed in The Dramaworkshop, and last January it received a reading at PBD as part of the first New Year/New Plays Festival.

Alice Rahon: Poetic Invocations

Thursday, Jan 23, 2020 various times - English

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is proud to present a new exhibition featuring works of French-Mexican surrealist painter Alice Rahon (1904–1987). “Poetic Invocations” is guest curated by Mexico-City based art historian Tere Arcq. The exhibition aims to contribute to the scholarship and recognition of under-explored women artists, and to the intercultural influences on European artists in exile in the Americas, whose work was often deeply marked by indigenous and archaic cultures.

Miami Art Week extended hours

  • Sunday, December 1 – Monday, December 9, 10am-5pm
  • Public Reception with Curator Teresa Arcq: Thursday, December 5, 8-11pm

Show more >>

Born in France and later nationalized as a Mexican, Rahon joined the Parisian Surrealist circle as a poet, but once in Mexico, she turned her creativity mainly to painting. She became an active a member of a group of European Surrealists artists in exile including Remedios Varo, Benjamin Péret, Leonora Carrington, and Kati Horna.

Rahon’s production was a far cry from that of her contemporaries. She was drawn to light and color, and established a continuous dialogue between painting and poetry. Her creations brought together Mexican landscapes, myths, legends and fiestas, and she was a pioneer in the use of sand and texture on her canvases, which included subtle graffito markings. Her oeuvre has been overlooked for many years.

“Poetic Invocations” marks the first solo show dedicated to Rahon’s work in the United States in 55 years since her exhibition at the Louisiana Gallery in Houston, Texas in 1964. The exhibition examines a robust art-historical moment that emerged in 1940 as an international community of artists fled World War II in Europe and settled in Mexico. It will feature approximately 30 works including paintings, works on paper, assemblages, as well as archival material such as the Dyn journal, original poems and manuscripts and photographs to put an emphasis on Rahon´s oeuvre as a whole. The exhibition will explore five fundamental themes: art as poetic invocation, the power of the immemorial past, the journal that challenged limits, the volcano and the Mexican landscape and light: the dilution of inside and outside, and the metaphorical experience of the inside out: fiestas and popular art in Mexico.

Rahon exhibited regularly in Mexico, New York and California and had solo shows in Paris and Lebanon. Her last solo exhibition took place in 1986 at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, just a year before her death. In 2009, with the discovery of her archive, Teresa Arcq curated an Alice Rahon retrospective at the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City and then at El Cubo in Tijuana.

Arcq has worked as chief curator at the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City, and as an independent curator has produced many high-profile exhibitions. She has served as a professor of Art History at Centro de Cultura Casa Lamm and published several essays for catalogues on Mexican modern art and women artists in Mexico, as well as Surrealism. She is currently advising the exhibition and catalog for the show Global Surrealism opening in 2021 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Tate Modern Gallery in London. She is also collaborating with the Schirn Kunsthalle Museum in Frankurt and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark for the upcoming exhibition Fantastik Women, in Spring 2020 and writing for a publication on Leonora Carrington´s Tarot and one on Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington´s creative collaboration. She will be co-curating a Leonora Carrington retrospective for the Mapfre Foundation in Madrid and the Arken Museum in Denmark opening on the fall of 2020.

Also on view at MOCA November 26, 2019 – March 29, 2020 will be the first major U.S. solo exhibition of influential Chilean-born artist Cecilia Vicuña: “Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen.”

José Carlos Martinat: American Echo Chamber

Thursday, Jan 23, 2020 various times - English

For PAMM's double-height gallery, Jose Carlos Martinat created American Echo Chamber (2018), an installation that responds to the amplification and reinforcement of ideas in the current social and political landscape. This large-scale work is composed of mechanical light sculptures that collectively generate a dramatic and entertaining space for visual consumption. The sculptures are inspired by symbols of both American and Peruvian cultures ranging from historical images such as the political cartoon "Join, or Die" attributed to founding father Benjamin Franklin to popular internet memes. These symbols are often composed of images related to violence, manipulation, racism, or migration. The artist also includes artisanal pyrotechnic castle fireworks from Lima. By creating a space that amplifies the consumption of these symbols, Martinat compares the contemporary political scene to an echo chamber, emphasizing a dynamic in which people seek information from media outlets that reinforce their beliefs as an unconscious exercise of validation and prejudice.

Les Lalanne at The Raleigh Gardens

Thursday, Jan 23, 2020 from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM - English

Honoring the late French artist Claude Lalanne, and her husband and collaborator François-Xavier Lalanne, Les Lalanne at the Raleigh Gardens is a temporary public art installation presented in the famed Gardens of The Raleigh Hotel, one of Miami Beach’s most celebrated Art Deco properties, opening to public November 22, 2019.

Animating a half-acre of the renowned Raleigh site and boardwalk, this public tribute to the late French artists is being presented by real estate developer Michael Shvo, and the garden was designed by the exceptional talent-pairing of architect and Lalanne collector, Peter Marino, with Miami landscape designer, Raymond Jungles.

This lyrical collaboration weaves together a fantastical sculpture garden animated by Claude and Francois-Xavier Lalanne’s surrealist, prized sculpture with tropical vegetation. Testimony to a profound legacy, this collaboration sources over 39 pieces from the international collections of private collectors Michael Shvo, Jane Holzer, Peter Marino, and gallerists Ben Brown, Jean Gabriel Mitterand, and Paul Kasmin.

Cecilia Vicuna: About To Happen

Thursday, Jan 23, 2020 various times - English

Saturday, December 7: Cecilia Vicuña performance, followed by a conversation with the artist and co-curators Andrea Andersson The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts at the CAC, and Julia Bryan-Wilson, Professor, University of California, Berkeley

In celebration of Miami Art Week 2019, the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) will present the first major U.S. solo exhibition of influential Chilean-born artist Cecilia Vicuña. “About to Happen” traces Vicuña’s career-long commitment to exploring discarded and displaced materials, peoples, and landscapes in a time of global climate change,

“Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen” is comprised of Vicuña’s multidisciplinary work in performance, sculpture, drawing, video, text, and site-specific installations created over 40 years. Reframing dematerialization as both a formal consequence of 1960s conceptualism and radical climate change, the exhibition examines a process that shapes public memory and responsibility. Operating fluidly between concept and craft, text and textile, Vicuña’s practice merges dissimilar disciplines and communities with shared relationships to land and sea, and to the economic and environmental disparities of the 21st century.

Vicuña’s work reflects the overlapping dialogs of conceptual art, land art, poetry, and feminist art practices. For the first time in this traveling exhibition, the show will include painting, a practice which Vicuña began in the 1970s and to which she has recently returned – in some cases, repainting lost paintings from memory. The addition of painting to “Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen” is an affirmation of a practice that exists, in its entirety, in the logic of every single work – and yet – is also, always evolving.

The exhibition will include an expansive presentation of Vicuña’s precario sculptures, which the artist began creating in 1966. Vicuña assembles these “precarious works” from bits of wood, thread, and other found objects into temporary small sculptures that despite their modest scale have a surprising dynamism and energy. The exhibition also features the installation “Burnt Quipu” (2018), in which lengths of dyed wool hang floor to ceiling, connecting earth and sky, in tribute to recent forest fires in the greater West Coast region. “Burnt Quipu” is part of Vicuña’s longstanding artistic exploration of the ancient Andean writing tradition of “talking knots,” an advanced communication system inhibited during colonization.

Born in Santiago de Chile, Vicuña is a poet, visual artist, and filmmaker. She is the author of more than 20 books of poetry, and exhibits and performs internationally. Her multidimensional works begin as an image that becomes a poem, a film, a song, a sculpture, or a collective performance.

Vicuña’s work is included in the collections of The Tate Gallery, London; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Chile, Santiago, Chile; MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art, New York. She was appointed Messenger Lecturer 2015 at Cornell University, an honor bestowed on authors who contribute to the “Evolution of Civilization for the special purpose of raising the moral standard of our political, business, and social life.” She lives in New York City, where she co-founded oysi.org, a site for the oral cultures and poetries of the world. Vicuña’s work is represented by Lehmann Maupin, New York, Hong Kong, and Seoul. Vicuna’s art has also been featured inDocumenta 14 and shown at Witte de With. She most recently was awarded the CINTAS, a very prestigious United States artist fellowship.

“Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen” is organized by the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans (CAC), and co-curated by Andrea Andersson, The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts at the CAC, and Julia Bryan-Wilson, Professor, University of California, Berkeley. Support for this exhibition is provided by Sydney & Walda Besthoff Foundation, The Helis Foundation, The Kabacoff Family Foundation, and the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog.

The exhibition at MOCA is made possible, in part, with support from Funding Arts Network and Citizens Interested in the Arts. MOCA’s exhibitions and programs are made possible with the continued support of the North Miami Mayor and Council and the City of North Miami, the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and Miami-Dade County Tourist Development Council, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.

Also on view at MOCA November 26, 2019 – March 29, 2020, a new exhibition featuring works of French-Mexican surrealist painter Alice Rahon (1904–1987). Guest curated by Mexico-City based art historian Teresa Arcq, “Poetic Invocations,” marks the first solo show in 55 years dedicated to Rahon’s work in the United States.
