Autopia explores the ubiquitous presence of the automobile in contemporary culture. “Autopia” combines the words auto and Utopia to highlight the importance that the car industry played as one of the paramount symbols of progress in the 20th Century. What is its place in contemporary culture? Does car culture remain central to our ideal of progress? In this exhibition, the legacy of automobiles is being reviewed and reassessed through the work of artists from three continents.

The exhibition is divided in four thematic groups, dealing with the central role of cars in the American High/Way of Life, the USA-USSR fight for consumers’ hearts and minds during the Cold War, the impact of automobiles in the natural realm, and the ways in which it has affected human lives, rewriting maps through commerce and migration, and changing urban centers like Miami.

Participating artists include:
Jairo Alfonso, Adrián Balseca, Yael Bartana, César Beltrán, Timothy Buwalda, Carlos Luis DeMedeiros, Rigoberto Díaz Martínez, Daniel Evans, Luis Gispert, Pablo Helguera, Alex Heria, Marisa Jahn, Ernesto Kunde, Volodymyr Kuznetsov, Carlos Marcial, Frank E.

Wednesday, Nov 16 – Friday, Nov 18, 2016

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.
