ICA MIAMI PRESENTS BEWITCHING INFINITY MIRROR ROOM

ICA MIAMI PRESENTS BEWITCHING INFINITY MIRROR ROOM

Visual Arts

Published 11/21/19

The installation – presented by the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami in an off-site exhibition space at 112 NE 41st St., Suite 106 – is meant to be a full-body experience.Bathed in a warm buttery yellow, the room has what appears to be millions upon millions of pumpkins, those familiar harbingers of fall, now headily and magically transformed with black polka dots spangling their voluptuous curves.This presentation marks the first time one of Kusama’s enormously popular Infinity Mirror Rooms has been shown in Miami, according to the museum.Kusama is a 90-year-old artist living in Japan who has received years of international attention and acclaim. Pumpkins and polka dots have appeared throughout her storied artistic career, which has included painting, performance, room-sized installations, sculpture, fashion, and film.Polka dots in Kusama’s art are both childishly playful and obsessively, even ominously, repetitive. A grotesque undercurrent lingers in this pumpkin …

MUSEUM OF ART AND DESIGN AT MDC PRESENTS THE LECTURE-PERFORMANCE ARCHIVO VIVO BY MAPA TEATRO

Visual Arts

Published 10/11/19

In front of projected images, documents, and video testimonies,Rolf and Heidi Abderhalden, directors of the Colombian group Mapa Teatro, will reflect on five projects in the Santa Inés district of Bogotá, also known as El Cartucho, “the cartridge.” In one of the most ambitious urban renewal projects in Colombia, the extremely impoverished neighborhood was demolished, and a monumental park was constructed on its ruins. Between 2002 and 2005, Mapa Teatro recorded the destruction of the barrio while developing projects with its displaced former residents. These collaborative and communal endeavors resulted in theatrical performances, installations, and site-specific presentations that reflect Mapa Teatro's self-description as a "laboratory of the social imagination." Equally political and poetic, the lecture-performance Archivo Vivo constitutes an experimental investigation of the myths, histories, and contemporary sentiments that live within an archive.Archivo Vivo is part of …

DANCE ON CANVAS

DANCE ON CANVAS

Visual Arts

Published 9/5/19

Italian painter Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo had a knack for depicting aspects of everyday life. “A Dance in the Country” shows a troupe of performers dancing and playing music. The focus of the piece is on the vibrantly-colored dancers shown in mid-step against a background of viewers dressed in muted tones. You could almost hear the music blaring in the background as a band bangs on horns and stringsThe several representations of Isadora DuncanIsadora Duncan had a profound effect on the painter Abraham Walkowitz. Duncan was a prominent dancer, achieving acclaim throughout Europe. Walkowitz said of Duncan “She had no laws. She did not dance according to the rules. She created. Her body was music. It was a body electric.” While Walkowitz painted subjects other than Isadora Duncan – she was certainly his muse. He uses a gestural style and delicate colors to evoke the groundbreaking, sentural and contravercial flair of this legendary dance pioneer.Location: Metropolitan Museum of …

10 TIMELESS MASTERPIECES HOUSED ACROSS THE US

10 TIMELESS MASTERPIECES HOUSED ACROSS THE US

Visual Arts

Published 5/2/18

Certain art pieces are imbued with so much history, culture, emotion, and life that even the most exact replica couldn’t pin down their exact essence. For the casual observer, this might be irrelevant, and therefore a search for their original source – pointless. But for many true art lovers, like myself, experiencing an original in person is like looking at the world from the same, unique vantage point from which the artist once saw something nobody else could.The Starry Night hardly needs an introduction, but here’s ours anyway: Vincent Van Gogh’s most signature masterpiece and an international symbol of art; a beautiful island of serenity, floating amidst a sea of torment inside a mad genius’ mind. It actually depicts Van Gogh’s view from the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum near Saint-Remy-de-Provence where the artist checked himself in after suffering a mental breakdown and famously cutting off his own ear. The artist left out the bars and focused on the night’s vibrant …

PEACE70 - Celebrating Peace Through Art

Visual Arts

Published 3/1/18

By Petar PetrovThis year,the State of Israel is turning 70. For a country, younger than some baby boomers, it has certainly made every year of its newly found freedom count. The State of Israel strides toward becoming the epitome of agricultural and high-tech innovation. But the industrial landscape is not the only global picture in which the young state has firmly positioned itself. Perhaps the country’s most tangible sign of all-around progress is the fact that its citizens’ aspirations spread far beyond the capitalistic world and into the artistic one. Amidst all the political tension which has been hanging over the small state in the Middle East like a dust storm, art is becoming an oasis where beauty and humanity can flourish unharmed. In celebration of 70 years of independence, the Sagamore Hotel Miami Beach will be displaying the works of many Israeli artists. And as if this wasn’t an occasion historic enough on its own, the actual venue is “incidentally” …
