ERNESTO BRIEL: IRIDESCENT GEOMETRIES

DATE: Thursday, November 19, 2020 –
Saturday, March 20, 2021

TIME: Tuesdays to Fridays 10:30 am – 5 pm, Saturdays: 11am – 4pm

PLACE: Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection

The Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection presents our new exhibition of cuban artist Ernesto Briel:Iridescent Geometries. 

Since its inception in 2005, the driving force behind the Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection, JCMAC, has been to recognize and generate awareness on the contribution that Geometric Abstraction has made to art history in the twentieth century. With the title Iridescent Geometries, JCMAC gives continuity to the exhibition project that began six years ago.

Since then, its objective has been to promote the study of modern and contemporary art at an international level, with an emphasis on abstract-geometric practices. On this occasion, and after having exhibited part of the collection, he focuses his attention on the work of Ernesto Briel, a Cuban optical artist whose production is practically unknown, even among specialists in Latin American art.

Institute of Contemporary Art
4040 NE 2nd Ave,
Miami, FL 33137

Fall Semester invites you to its second iteration of public lectures and open forums happening from Nov. 16—18, 2016.

Fall Semester brings together a diverse group of theorists, critics, researchers, and interested individuals to engage in multifaceted discourse on contemporary society and culture. Through public lectures and a digital platform, the second iteration of Fall Semester addresses current intersections of what constitutes the self. After discussing Miami as a globalized city in its inaugural session in 2014, Fall Semester now turns its focus to the city’s inhabitants, those directly affected by current social and economic change.

Fall Semester is the project of artists Felice Grodin, Odalis Valdivieso, Angela Valella, Marcos Valella, and Antonia Wright. Collectively they have developed an organizational strategy to unite the contributors’ discussions into a cohesive program providing a platform for both speakers and attendees. The project arose from their concerns with global issues which have influenced their individual practice and research.

School of Visual Arts
335 West 16th St Fl 1,  New York
 

MFA Art Practice presents site-specific performance artist, social choreographer and faculty member Ernesto Pujol discussing his practice.

His performances have often served as mausoleums or monuments to forgotten or remembered but unresolved social issues, which have been mourned or reflected upon during the experience. He is the author of Sited Body, Public Visions: Silence, Stillness and Walking as Performance Practice and numerous anthologized essays.
