Aesthetics & Values

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

The Aesthetics & Values seminar of the FIU Honors College examines the vital role visual art plays in the social and cultural dialogue surrounding controversial issues. It investigates how artists have challenged or enforced authority by creating new aesthetics. The heart of the course is the Aesthetics & Values Research and Exhibition Project. This annual project provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their resourcefulness and creativity through the research, curation, and organization of an on-campus exhibition of contemporary Miami artists.

Since August 2005, John William Bailly’s Aesthetics & Values of the FIU Honors College has immersed students in Miami’s contemporary art world. The class has curated 13 exhibitions, collaborated with multiple artists, and provided a museum exhibition platform for Miami’s exceptional artists.

Between a view and a milestone

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Between a view and a milestone presents works by ArtCenter/South Florida’s studio residents that offer contemplative meditations on place. While place can imply a certain level of geographic specificity, determining placehood can be difficult and requires certain physical and intangible elements to make it so. The exhibition’s title refers to a visual device used in landscape painting, in which the painter includes an object in the foreground as a means of framing the view of the landscape. Places call for this sort of demarcation, but they also call for a more emotive connection that is highly dependent upon the individual occupying it. Places are felt as much as they are physically constructed.

Show more >>

In this exhibition, perspective– both spatial and interpretive– plays an important role in framing the places these works address. A video game finds its protagonist navigating through an amorphous landscape that simultaneously inspires awe and dread. A set of sculptures comprised of materials native to Miami’s urban topography are used to further investigate ideas of mobility and labor. A lone figure in a grassy field desperately bobbing for apples to the sound of a mournful poem considers how recent events and contentious histories can oftentimes define the places we live in. The works in this exhibition attempt to understand the evocative nature of place and invite more nuanced explorations of time, memory and identity.

By The People: Designing a Better America

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

The first design exhibition scheduled in the MDC Museum of Art and Design after its April 2018 reopening, By the People: Designing a Better America will explore the challenges faced by urban, suburban and rural communities in the U.S. and its bordering countries. Based on more than two years of field research—traveling to shrinking post-industrial cities, sprawling metro regions, struggling rural towns, border regions, areas impacted by natural and man-made disaster, and places of persistent poverty, this exhibition presents collaborative designs for more equitable, inclusive and sustainable communities.

Organized by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian American Design Museum, and curated by Cynthia E. Smith, the exhibition features sixty design projects from every region across the United States, the exhibition will highlight design solutions that expand access to education, food, health care and affordable housing; increase social and economic inclusion; offer improved alternative transportation options; and provide a balanced approach to land use between the built and natural environment. By the People aims to empower visitors to see themselves as designers—not just of objects, but also of ideas, strategies, and solutions that improve their daily lives. The exhibition will showcase the innovative and impactful actions generated through design, and inspire creative problem-solving at local, regional, national, and even international levels.

Tickets:

  • $12 adults;
  • $8 seniors and military;
  • $5 students (13 – 17) and college students (with valid ID);
  • free for MDC MOAD members, MDC students, faculty, and staff, and children 12 and under.

DESTEFASHIONCOLLECTION 1 To 8

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

The DESTEFASHIONCOLLECTION is an incremental project conceived by the DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art to consider and trouble the boundaries between art and fashion. Each year from 2007 through 2014, DESTE commissioned an artist to survey that season's international fashion offerings and to select five related items with which to execute a capsule project, reflecting on the formal, representational, material and social economies that circulate between art and fashion. Initiated with the Benaki Museum, Athens, in 2014, the exhibition DESTEFASHIONCOLLECTION: 1 to 8 assembles all eight years of capsules and projects.

Adapted by The Bass in collaboration with the DESTE Foundation, the exhibition design in Miami Beach is created by architect Edwin Chan and marks the first time the collection is exhibited in its entirety within the United States. DESTEFASHIONCOLLECTION: 1 to 8 seeks to compare the artists' fashion selections and their interpretations, and to expose the ligatures, relays and exchanges within the components of the collection. Neither solely about fashion nor about art, the exhibition builds on the tensions, affinities, and distance between the two and the problem of contemporariness revealed in their relationship.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Augmented Reality (AR) Exhibition

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is a virtually interactive, digital exhibition of commissioned works by Miami-based artist Felice Grodin. The series employs the immersive technology of augmented reality (AR), and is accessible to visitors using iOS devices in PAMM’s outdoor areas and in the Padma and Raj Vattikuti Learning Theater on the museum’s first floor. This AR project is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Influenced by geophilosophy—a field of thought shaped by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari that analyzes the relationship between physical and mental territories—Grodin draws on her training as an architect to explore the mutable within landscape, architecture, and her urban surroundings. Felice Grodin: Invasive Species interacts with PAMM’s architecture, evolving and transforming the museum’s environment for the duration of the exhibition.

Featuring a total of four digital works, the show launches with two AR site-specific works—Mezzbug and Terrafish (both 2017)—that engage with and virtually enhance the museum’s building. In Terrafish, Grodin overlaps PAMM’s hanging gardens on the waterfront terrace with the translucent body of a digital species she created, which is suggestive of nonnative jellyfish found in South Florida waters. By drawing on the destructive impact of invasive species and creating a new digital environment, Grodin highlights the transformative and unstable state of our ecosystem, speculating about a not-so-distant future affected by climate change and overtaken by uncanny creatures.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is an augmented reality exhibition that can be viewed via the PAMM App which is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or iPad. iOS 11.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, and newer.

Karen Rifas Deceptive Constructions

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

For more than thirty years, Miami-based artist Karen Rifas has amassed a body of work that endeavors to understand and re-imagine space. Well known for her minimal cord and leaf installations, and precise, methodical line drawings, in 2016, Rifas began a focused exploration into the constructive possibilities of color. Employing densely hued shapes and irregular lines, Rifas creates spaces that oscillate between the two- and three-dimensional. Deceptive Constructions surveys this recent body of work for the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in over 10 years. Through variegated floor and sculptural installations, works on paper, and wood panel, Rifas uses a concise language of richly contrasted color to alter our perception of space.

Karen Rifas (Chicago, b. 1942) lives and works in Miami and is a professor at New World School of the Arts. Recent solo exhibitions have been held at: Emerson Dorsch (2017), Meeting House Gallery (2016), De La Cruz Collection (2010), Pinnacle Gallery, Savannah College of Art and Design (2007), Polk Museum of Art (2004), and Museo De Arte Comtemporaneo, Panama City (1993).

Laura Aguilar

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Laura Aguilar: Show and Tell is the first comprehensive retrospective of photographer Laura Aguilar, assembling more than one hundred works produced over three decades. Through photographs and videos that are frequently political as well as personal, and which traverse performative, feminist, and queer art genres, Aguilar offers candid portrayals of herself, her friends and family, and LGBT and Latinx communities. Aguilar’s now iconic triptych, Three Eagles Flying (1990), set the stage for her future work by using her nude body as an overt and courageous rebellion against the colonization of Latinx identities — racial, gendered, cultural and sexual. Her practice intuitively evolved over time as she struggled to negotiate and navigate her ethnicity and sexuality, her challenges with depression and auditory dyslexia, and the acceptance of her large body. This exhibition tells the story of the artist who for most of her life struggled to communicate with words yet ironically emerged as a powerful voice for numerous and diverse marginalized groups.

Laura Aguilar: Show and Tell is organized by the Vincent Price Art Museum in collaboration with the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, and is guest curated by Sybil Venegas.

Laure Prouvost: They are waiting for you

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

They Are Waiting for You presents Laure Prouvost’s absorbing moving image installations in which she conflates reality with fiction and art with everyday life. Often narrated in the artist’s voice, and interspersed with spoken and written instructions that directly address the viewer, her works confound expectations through a rapid-fire succession of moving images and sounds. Combining painting, sculpture, and found objects, Prouvost draws us into a shifting terrain where we lose our grasp of words and meanings, while the objects around us seem to gain theirs.

Show more >>

Laure Prouvost’s artistic output consistently returns to themes of escape into unfamiliar worlds or imaginings of unexpected alternative environments. A strong narrative impulse propels her practice, resulting in immersive, trans-medial installations with interwoven story lines that combine fiction and reality. Her videos, installations, paintings and tapestries unhinge commonplace and expected connections between language, image, and perception. Stepping away from traditional linear narratives, the artist crafts sensual environments laden with playful mistranslation that open a space for the viewer to grapple with the unstable relationship between imagination and reality.

Prouvost (b. 1978, Croix-Lille, France) lives and works in London, U.K. and Antwerp, Belgium. Recent solo exhibitions include: Softer and rounder so as to shine through your smooth marble, SALT Galata, Istanbul (2017); the wet wet wanderer, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam (2017); Laure Prouvost, wot hit talk, Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art, Gdańsk (2017); And she will say: hi her, ailleurs, to higher grounds…, Kunstmuseum Luzern (2016); GDM-Grandad Visitor Center, Pirelli Hangar Bicocca, Milan (2016); all behind, we’ll go deeper, deep down and she will say:, MMK, Frankfurt (2016); Dropped here and then, to live, leave it all behind, FRAC/ Consortium Dijon (2016); A Way To Leak, Lick, Leek, Fahrenheit, Los Angeles (2016); We Will Go Far, Musée Départemental d’Art Contemporain de Rochechouart (2015), It, Heat, Hit, e-flux, New York (2015), Der Öffentlichkeit — Von Den Freunden Haus Der Kunst, Haus der Kunst, Munich (2015), For Forgetting, New Museum, New York (2014).

Opening Reception: Thursday, October 18 at 7:00pm

Hosted by Dr. Mark B. Rosenberg. President of FIU (Florida International University) and Jonathan Plutzik, Owner of The Betsy Hotel

KINDSIGHT® uses images and words together to illuminate and celebrate the richness of everyday life, through random encounters and moments. It recognizes the extraordinary within the ordinary and shows how any encounter or moment can be a story of life’s richness, which is all around us always, within reach, there for the knowing.

KINDSIGHT® in its present form began in 2002 as a series of emails sent to friends and associates. The response was so favorable that the book KINDSIGHT was published in 2005, again with highly favorable response. Since then there have been numerous book signings, television and radio appearances, school visits (from grade school all the way to Harvard University Medical School), and exhibitions, including permanent displays at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles and Google Headquarters in New York City with more on the way.

A second KINDSIGHT® book will soon be published and talks are underway to do KINDSIGHT® projects internationally.

Meiro Koizumi: Battlelands

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Pérez Art Museum Miami is pleased to present a newly-commissioned video work by Meiro Koizumi (b. 1976, Gunma, Japan; lives in Tokyo). Working primarily in video and performance, Koizumi’s works investigate the boundaries between the private and the public, between authentic and staged emotions. They often present everyday situations transformed into sites of tension, involving conflicts between duty and desire. In this new work, Koizumi is working for the first time with non-Japanese subjects, engaging United States veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Five veterans recount traumatic experiences during these past military conflicts, while wearing body-cams that record images of their current domestic spaces and everyday landscapes in the US. The video poetically articulates how these difficult memories of war continually mix with daily life for these individuals, creating emotional, psychological battlelands.

Reflect: Healing Through Art exhibition

Friday, May 25, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM - English

Every artist at some stage in their artistic career has used their art making activities as a therapeutic tool toward the process of healing, clearing the mind, and self expression. Whether working through pain, loss, depression, illness or other emotional struggles, art helps to heal the soul.

We seek pieces which allow the art work to be a communication tool which creates a vital exchange between artist and patron. REFLECT will be a multi-media exhibition exploring how art heals the soul as both a means of expression and a therapeutic tool.

The Exile Experience: Journey to Freedom is a pictorial account of the struggles that the Cuban exile community has endured since Fidel Castro's rise to power, and the successes they have achieved in the United States. Having covered the Cuban exile community and its struggle for freedom extensively throughout the years, Miami Dade College and The Miami Herald Media Company now present this journalistic chronology, which showcases the spirit and accomplishments of the Cuban American community. The permanent exhibition is housed at the College’s National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower, itself central to the story of Cubans in the United States.

MDC’s Freedom Tower was operated by the U.S. Government as a reception center for Cuban refugees from 1962 to 1974. “The building is significant because it represents the important story of the Cuban exodus to America and resettlement during the Cold War,” reports the U.S. Department of the Interior, which has also called the Freedom Tower the “Ellis Island of the South.” Though it operated in that capacity for only 12 years, the building has become an icon representing the faith that democracy brought to troubled lives, the generosity of the American people and a hopeful beginning that assured thousands a new life in a new land.

The Words of Others: León Ferrari and Rhetoric in Times of War

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Originally organized as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA (2017–18), an initiative of the Getty Foundation, this solo exhibition of the Argentinian artist León Ferrari (b. 1920, Buenos Aires; d. 2013, Buenos Aires) focuses on his influential practice from the 1960s to the 1980s. With a particular emphasis on his literary collages—works that incorporate text excerpts from different sources that are reassembled to create an altogether new message—the exhibition features the first full live reading of his seminal 1967 publication Palabras ajenas (The Words of Others)—an important Vietnam-era anti-war piece written in the form of a dramatic script.

Show more >>

Palabras ajenas was Ferrari’s first literary collage, composed as an extensive dialogue among various characters, including President Lyndon B. Johnson, Adolf Hitler, Pope Paul VI, and God. By means of a cut-and-paste exercise, the work associates the atrocities of the Vietnam War, the horrors of Nazism, and the representations of redemption and punishment in religion through quotations selected from history books, literature, the Bible, newspapers, and magazines. The result is a chorus of contemporary voices that recite and interpret the text, which will be read in full in PAMM’s auditorium on February 15 from 1 to 9 pm.

Ferrari’s literary collages were a central element of his practice, yet most remain unpublished or have experienced minimal circulation as limited editions or sketchbooks. This exhibition revisits many of these works, exploring uncharted territory and offering a new perspective on Ferrari’s work while exploring the aesthetic forms of political intervention that emerged in Latin America in the 1960s. This profoundly contemporary project examines the obscenity of war, the ways the media represents conflict, and the role of political and religious discourse in the expansion of Western culture.

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

This exhibition responds to the multilayered aspects of the game of soccer, or fútbol. Engaging social and political issues or depicting common humanity built around the sport, these artists reflect on the role of the game with society. Coinciding with the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, the international men’s soccer tournament, this exhibition not only commemorates the spectacle of convening nations, but also reflects Miami’s diverse population through the sport’s transnational nature.

The World’s Game: Fútbol and Contemporary Art brings together works by more than 40 artists who share in diverse and intersecting dialogues formed around the sport. Featuring a variety of mediums—including painting, sculpture, photography, and video—the exhibition aims to create an experience in which the viewer employs the universal game to engage with the works of contemporary artists from around the world. Some works venerate soccer by directly referencing its vibrant essence of spectacle, while others explore how the sport acts as a platform for discussions about nationalism and globalism. Collectively, the exhibition celebrates the commonality of human experience through a sport that embodies one of the few common languages worldwide.

william cordova now’s the time: narratives of southern alchemy

Next date: May 25, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

william cordova now’s the time: narratives of southern alchemy is the first extensive museum survey of cultural practitioner william cordova (b. 1969, Lima; lives in Miami, Lima, and New York). It presents a selection of works embodying the three main themes that have inspired the work of this celebrated Miami artist for decades: transmission, alchemy, and transcendence. In his nationally and internationally recognized drawings, sculptures, installations, and collaborative projects, cordova collapses linear concepts of time and history to address contemporary notions of displacement. Like an ethnographer, he extensively researches symbols, people and the common threads that binds different cultures to one another, foregoing the boundaries between the past and the present. Then, he uses ephemeral and precarious materials to create elegant works that challenge traditional Western typologies. Striving to create a flexible and critical space for the understanding of our contemporary moment, he builds bridges between various intersecting narratives such as architecture, cinema, literature, and music. This exhibition will be the artist's first ever U.S. survey exhibition and will be accompanied by an extensive museum catalogue, available at PAMM Shop.

The Architecture of Early Miami

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM - English

Ever wonder what was in the minds of Miami’s earliest residents? Us too. Join us as we bring together some of Miami’s most unique historically focused institutions as we explore the lives and influences of Glenn Curtiss, James Deering, and George Merrick. The aesthetic vision and architectural influences of these early developers can still be seen today throughout Miami, from Opa-Locka to Biscayne Bay. Representatives from the Curtiss Mansion, Vizcaya, and Coral Gables Historical Resources will each discuss their historic buildings, the visions of their founders, and partake in a panel discussion. Have some burning questions about why James Deering names his winter home Vizcaya? Or maybe why the streets of Coral Gables are named the way they are? Now is your chance to ask! Audience question will be encouraged at the end of the program.

Book Club

Next date: Jun 6, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

The Green Book Club is devoted to the topics that green-thumbs love best: nature, gardens, conservation and the environment. New members are always welcome! We will discuss our summer selection: Plot 29: Love Affair with The Land, by renowned journalist Allan Jenkins.

Plot 29 is a superbly written testament to the power of the earth to nourish and heal. A review in The Guardian describes the book as “half memoir, half thoughtful gardener’s diary, a moving account of mental trauma told through the author’s encounters with nature. Jenkins sees his garden as a place where a person can try to escape from, and atone for, the darkness of human existence."

Please bring selections for the coming season.

The Club meets every month until May at the Garden (except for December when we will meet off site due to Art Basel.) All members are encouraged to join the Miami Beach Botanical Garden to support this beautiful subtropical garden and its mission of public education and enjoyment.

Many Visions, Many Versions

Next date: Jun 9, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Art from Indigenous Communities in India

An unparalleled opportunity for audiences to view rarely seen contemporary art from four major indigenous artistic traditions in India, Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India showcases works from the Gond and Warli communities of central India, the Mithila region of Bihar, and the narrative scroll painters of West Bengal. The exhibition features 47 exceptional paintings and drawings, selected from private collections in the United States and Europe, by 24 significant indigenous artists including Jangarh Singh Shyam, Jivya Soma Mashe, Sita Devi, and Swarna Chitrakar, among others.

Show more >>

Many Visions, Many Versions explores the breadth and variety of cultural traditions in India, revealing a dynamic aesthetic that remains deeply rooted in traditional culture, yet vitally responsive to issues of global concern. Rather than taking a conventional approach to exhibiting these four distinct indigenous artistic traditions by separating them into sections distinguished by tribal and cultural affinities, the curators intentionally display the paintings thematically; accentuating the shared cultural features and contemporary concerns of these four communities that underlies the diversity of the artists’ unique expressive forms, techniques, and styles. The exhibition is divided into four broad categories: Myth and Cosmology, Nature – real and imagined, Village Life, and Contemporary Explorations.

India’s rise as an Asian power on the global scene has focused the world’s attention on the country and its culture. For American audiences eager to know more about Indian art, Many Visions, Many Versions offers an opportunity for viewers of all ages to learn about life and culture in India through these remarkable artworks.

Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India was organized by BINDU modern Gallery and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC and curated by Drs. Aurogeeta Das and David Szanton, with assistance from consulting curator Jeffrey Wechsler.

This exhibition was made possible at the Frost Art Museum FIU by the Jane Hsiao Asian Art Endowment.

MOCA: Monarchs Artist Reception

Thursday, Jun 14, 2018 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM - English

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) will present the group exhibition “Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly” from May 24 – Aug. 5, 2018. Curated by Risa Puleo, the exhibition features the works of 37 artists who are native to the Americas separated into conceptual categories including indigenous, immigrant and assimilated.

The exhibition focuses on the monarch, the only butterfly that migrates in two directions, as a geographic range and a metaphor. Monarchs (specifically those of eastern North American) fly from southern Canada through the Midwest on their way to Michoacán, Mexico and back.

Show more >>

This survey of artists from or living in the path of the monarch, brings to life the Dakota Access Pipeline and the call to build a wall in Mexico as unrelenting issues that create challenges for people native to the Americas — being separated by conceptual categories of indigenous, immigrant, and assimilated.

Like the butterfly, which takes at least four generations to completely navigate its way through middle America with inherited knowledge, these artists also use inherited cultural memory to showcase and explore historical narratives of their respective heritage through abstract techniques.

Artists incorporate processes such as basket weaving, beadwork, copper hammering, and quilting, and materials such as stucco, plaster, ceramics, and feathers, that hold a high degree of resonance within native, immigrant, and brown aesthetics and vernacular cultures. The exhibition also charts the movement of styles and approaches through large spans of time across the Americas, speaking to an inherited means of production and genealogy of form.

William Cordova, a nationally respected Miami-based artist, is one of the artists featured in the exhibition. Other artists include Gina Adams, Carmen Argote, Natalie Ball, Margarita Cabrera, Juan William Chávez, Rafa Esparza, Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez, Guillermo Galindo, Jeffrey Gibson, Sky Hopinka, Donna Huanca, Truman Lowe, Ivan LOZANO, Cannupa Hanska Luger and Marty Two Bulls, Jr, Salvador Jiménez-Flores, Nicholas Galanin and Merritt Johnson, Rodolfo Marron III, Harold Mendez, Mark Menjivar, Ronny Quevedo, Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez, Josh Rios andAnthony Romero, Guadalupe Rosales, Carlos Rosales-Silva, Francisco Souto, Rodrigo Valenzuela, Mary Valverde, Dyani White Hawk, Nathan Young, and Sarah Zapata.

An artist reception will take place on Thursday, June 14, 2018 with an admission cost of $10 to the general public, free to MOCA members and North Miami residents.

Connectivity

Next date: Jul 1, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Through five thematic sections, Connectivity: Selections from the Collection of the Frost Art Museum examines how art objects, created across cultures and during different time periods, relate to one another and to myriad publics. In the first section, the notion of individuality emanates through an examination of portraiture and different representations of the figure. The exhibition explores shifting notions of dress and comparative elements such as gesture and pose. The second section considers belief systems, with an emphasis on myths and organized religions. Abstract languages comprise the third section and offer an opportunity to analyze works that implement color, line, and form in dynamic ways. Whether it is a longing for home or the memory of a cherished street corner, geographic spaces examines how the notion of place serves as a creative catalyst. The final section reflects on this particular moment and evokes the effects of war, climate change, and the general uneasiness of a citizenry during turbulent times.

Connectivity shares recent gifts, celebrates the collection’s treasures, and includes rarely seen objects from the vaults collected over the past 40 years since the museum’s inception in 1978. Select objects featured in the installation will be rotated periodically.

Deconstruction

Next date: Jul 10, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Deconstruction: A reordering of life, politics, and art presents the work of twelve Miami-based artists who interrogate varying notions of deconstruction in their work. By taking apart ideas and processes, they create mechanisms through which life, politics, and art can be re-examined. While some of the artists in the exhibition deconstruct current events, personal memory or cultural archetypes, others dismantle norms to suggest alternative societal and personal structures.

In the 1960’s, the philosopher Guy Debord encouraged a “reordering of life, politics, and art” and cautioned against social interaction mediated by images. He presciently asserted that humans did not interact with one another enough in person. Debord perceptively anticipated society’s reliance on small hand-held technology, social media, and the twenty-four-hour news cycle that now permeates daily life. Often read by students of art history, Debord’s declarations were written during a time of political upheaval in France. The contemporary artists represented in this exhibition live in Miami, and while certain works are infused with local realities, global and even utopic questions populate the exhibition. These artists re-order objects and imagery in disparate ways to disrupt and question conventional narratives and ways of seeing.
