The Secret Comedy of Women

Friday, Apr 12, 2024 at 7:30 PM - English

The Secret Comedy of Women, By Barbara Gehring & Linda Klein

From boys to bras and pantyhose to menopause, this two-woman show explores the universal female experience through a rollicking spectacle of comedy, songs, dances, stories, and spontaneous moments of discovery that all women share. Inspired by authors BarbaraGehring and Linda Klein's earnest and sweetly absurd writings in their girlhood diaries, The Secret Comedy of Women is a mix of sketch comedy, improvisation, audience participation, witty songs, and clever videos.

The show reminds audiences of the very funny and very charming similarities between all women. "It's really like a girlhood reunion," says Klein. "Our show is something highly universal, made personal. It is definitely for women of all ages," says Gehring. "However," she adds, make no mistake, the men in our audiences love the show just as much!"

Germane Barnes: Ukhamba

Friday, Apr 12, 2024 from 12:00 AM to 11:45 PM - English

Named after a type of African woven-wood basket, Ukhamba is a ten-foot-tall circular structure with four arched entrances, built of curved wooden elements stacked in horizontal layers. Its construction invites visitors to walk inside and congregate but allows the surrounding plaza and urban landscape to remain visible through the structure. Inspired by Barnes's time working abroad in South Africa, as well as in Miami, Ukhamba not only responds to Miami's sub-tropical climate but also unites architectural elements typical of diasporic communities of African and Caribbean origin. It comprises a pavilion that appears part basket, part traditional breeze wall.

Ukhamba is a space for reflection on our relationship to the built environment, urban design, its histories, and cultural memories. Barnes's pavilion continues the artists' exploration of themes of spatial identity, migration, the cultural influences of the African diaspora, and its contributions to classical architecture. Primarily using materials found in South Florida, the artist has focused on sustainability and has designed a structure in dialogue with the history and natural environment that surrounds it.

Silhouettes: Image and Word in the Harlem Renaissance

Friday, Apr 12, 2024 various times - English

The flourishing of literary, visual, and musical arts between the 1920s and '40s known as the Harlem Renaissance projected a new picture of Black life to the world.

Curated by Christopher Norwood, founder of Hampton Art Lovers, in consultation with Shawn Christian, professor of English at Florida International University, and Wolfsonian staff. Sponsored by Cowles Charitable Trust, Tamara L. Harris Foundation, and Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau Art of Black Miami.

Gary Simmons: Public Enemy

Friday, Apr 12, 2024 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM - English

Gary Simmons: Public Enemy is the first comprehensive career survey of the work of multidisciplinary artist Gary Simmons (b. 1964, New York; lives in Los Angeles). The most in-depth presentation of Simmons’s work to date, the exhibition covers thirty years of the artist’s career, encompassing approximately seventy works.

Show more >>

Since the late 1980s Simmons has played a key role in situating questions of race, class, and gender identity at the center of contemporary art discourse. Notable for his early application of conceptual artistic strategies, Simmons exposes and analyzes histories of racism inscribed in US visual culture. Over the course of his career, Simmons has revealed traces of these histories in the fields of sports, cinema, literature, music, and architecture and urbanism, while drawing heavily on popular genres such as hip-hop, horror, and science fiction. Guided by an internal logic, his approach is cool, analytical, and unflinching in its interrogation of intense historical narratives, yet the results consistently deliver a strong emotional charge.

In this timely exhibition accompanied by a major exhibition catalogue and slate of related programs visitors will gain a holistic understanding of the complex and profoundly moving work of this groundbreaking and influential artist.
