Mid-Century Modern - Church of the LIttle Flower

Friday, Apr 26, 2024 from 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM - Other

James K. Bass, Conductor
Furniture or architecture might come to mind when one hears the phrase mid-century modern, but the creative style also impacted the music of the time. Inspired by rapid technological advancements and a post-war world, artists in the mid-20th century strove to predict and create the art of the future. Composers like Arnold Schoenberg experimented with new sounds and compositional techniques. At the same time, others like Alan Hovhaness and Samuel Barber returned to styles of the past with new understanding. You'll likely discover a mid-century work you've never heard before on this program for a cappella chorus.

Join us for a Pre-Concert Conversation 1 hour before the concert with Dr. Brad Diamond, tenor!

Silhouettes: Image and Word in the Harlem Renaissance

Friday, Apr 26, 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. Silhouettes: Image and Word in the Harlem Renaissance considers the role of art in this movement, paying special attention to collaboration between artists and writers on illustrated books—works that reached a broad audience with stories and images that challenged demeaning stereotypes and asserted African Americans' capacity for self-determination.

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 26, 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.

Germane Barnes: Ukhamba

Friday, Apr 26, 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.
