This curated performance event will be live-streamed from New York City with an exclusive in-person screening held at the North Beach Bandshell on January 31st at 7:00PM for 100 patrons. The performance will also be available for viewing online from January 31 - February 7, 2021.

Born and raised in Southwest Florida, Sasha Wortzel is an artist and filmmaker working between Miami and New York City. In their Oolite Arts solo exhibition DREAMS OF UNKNOWN ISLANDS, Wortzel references cycles of life be they natural, influenced, extracted or at times accelerated by human interference. As voices and sea levels rise, Wortzel marks and distorts time all the while calling out for some semblance of peace, care for the land, care for each other, and eventual liberation.

The Attacca Quartet's latest recording, Orange, won the 2020 GRAMMY award forBest Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance, and features string quartet works by composer Caroline Shaw: the youngest ever winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Shaw's career defies categorization she performs as a violin soloist, chamber musician, and as a vocalist in the Grammy-winning ensemble Roomful of Teeth. In a musical program anchored by the works of Caroline Shaw, this performance will tell the rising story of the intersection between nature and humanity.

New River Fine Art is pleased to announce Through the Looking Glass, a new collection of previously unreleased and trailblazing sculptural and two-dimensional artworks from contemporary artist, Hunt Slonem, debuting and running from January 22 - February 21, 2021 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Continuing in his bold and brilliant investigation of the world's flora and fauna, Slonem's groundbreaking metamorphic transformation gives birth to a wonderfully refreshing realm of casted bronze, blown glass, neon, and multimedia-based au-courant artistry. "This new body of work was born out of these unexpected times," said Slonem. "Given an opportunity to create work in an entirely new methodology, what has resulted is an artistic liberation of sorts. My established lexicon of forms has taken on new life in blown glass, in bronze, and other media, all in a visual culmination that is thrilling to me artistically. This moment in time has proven to be an impetus for an ever-expanding vocabulary of new work and I'm pleased to share it with you."

The artist's impressive career spanning almost five decades now enters a new phase of evolution. Disciplined, yet explosive in his use of color, his signature gestures are vibrantly raw and wild. Slonem uses his new mediums with the same deft hand that rocketed him into the coterie of New York art world luminaries in the 1970s. "This exhibition,Through the Looking Glass, is a first for Hunt. New River Fine Art is so proud and gracious to be selected to be the premier gallery to showcase the new collection of innovative artwork. For an international artist, who is widely revered in New York and across the globe, choosing Fort Lauderdale for this coveted launch is astonishing...with this decision, he is actively acknowledging the integrity and respectability of the South Florida Art Market, and spotlighting the vibrant and strong collector base that flourishes outside of New York," says Lisa Burgess, President of New River Fine Art.

Art Exhibit: The Undercurrent by Gustavo Prado

Sunday, Jan 31, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM - English

The Undercurrent is a series of sculptural installations that aim to amplify and manipulate the spectator's field of vision. Made from concave and convex mirrors of many sizes that Prado attaches to industrial metal structures, the sculptures create something akin to an anti-camera that reconfigures the viewer's vantage point and amplifies notions of (dis)location.

MOAD Presents The Body Electric

Sunday, Jan 31, 2021 at 12:00 AM - English

The Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) at Miami Dade College (MDC) presents The Body Electric, a major exhibition that looks at our fraught relationship to technology, particularly the increasingly inescapable interface between our bodies and screens. The remarkably varied art in the exhibition examines the last 50 years of artists addressing the way technological mediation has come to dominate our interactions with the world, with each other, and with ourselves.

In an age dominated by digital technology, The Body Electric explores themes of the real and the virtual, the organic and the artificial, moving from the world into the screen and back again. The exhibition presents an intergenerational and international group of 55artists and collectives that have seized upon the screen as a place to rethink the body and identity, with a particular emphasis on questions of gender, sexuality, class, and race. It contextualizes contemporary artists who today engage with digital technology and the influence of the Internet within a broader art historical narrative to reveal shared interests that emerge across generations, despite differing technological means.
