Jorge Sanchez: AREAS THAT ARE, at 6th Street Container, Miami

September 18th, 2015

6-9 pm

6th Street Container
1155 (rear) SW 6th Street
Miami, FL 33130

 

On Friday, September 18th, Jorge Sanchez (BFA ’13) will open a new solo exhibition at 6th Street ContainerAreas That Are include Sanchez’s photographs that highlight South Florida’s rapid urban development.

Jorge Sanchez wrote the following statement to describe Areas That Are:

Urban development in South Florida is growing with ferocious velocity. This, unfortunately, has been extended to areas that are environmentally sensitive, which will have adverse impact. [T]housands of acres of vacant or unused land [are] within the county’s boundaries. I strenuously believe that our resources can be used in wiser and environmentally conscious ways. This can be achieved by rezoning more land from restricted commercial use, to mixed residential-commercial use; also, by lifting some existing arbitrary building height restrictions, and building more mixed-income developments. Other cities and counties around the country have successfully applied these solutions when faced with similar challenges.

Gustavo Acosta: “Timeline”, at Latin American Masters Art Gallery, Santa Monica, CA

September 12 – October 31, 2015

Reception for the Artist: Saturday, September 12, 2015, 6 – 8 PM

Latin American Masters Art Gallery
2525 Michigan Ave E2,
Santa Monica, CA 90404

Latin American Masters is pleased to present, Timeline, an exhibition of recent paintings by Gustavo Acosta (Cuba, b. 1958). Acosta’s Timeline paintings feature the neo-romantic architecture of a seemingly abandoned city. Acosta’s treatment of surface, particularly the staining and layering of color, reinforce an awareness of time’s imprint. Yet, his paintings have an enigmatic, A-temporal quality, as if haunted by history. Rather than ghost towns, they appear as constructions from a parallel world that can never be entered, where threedimensional space flows seamlessly into two-dimensional geometry.

Hamlet Lavastida: Prophylactic Life, at Dot Fiftyone Gallery, Miami

August 22 – October 10, 2015

Opening Reception: Thursday, August 20, 2015

7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Dot Fiftyone Gallery 
187 NW 27 Street –
Wynwood Arts District,
Miami FL 33127

Curator: Janet Batet  

Hamlet Lavastida’s sophisticated artistic proposal focuses on the field of history, ideology and collective memory. The artist is interested in the diagnosis and the reconstruction of a particular iconographic memory associated with the ideological notion of “prophylaxis” wielded by the Cuban Revolution of 1959 as an indoctrination tool aimed at the conversion of the individual in the long awaited archetype of the “New Man”.

By the term “prophylactic work” is known in Cuba the ideological prevention, and educational guidance designed to ensure the full integration of the individual into the realm of the Socialist construction project.

Circumscribed to the period 1960-1990, this body of work, a sort of post structuralism scrutiny, centers on the review of official documents and images directly associated with the imagery of prevention, orientation, and coercion.

Revision: Angel Delgado at Aluna Art Foundation, Miami

April 18th to June 27th, 2015

Aluna Art Foundation
1393 S.W. 1st. Street
Miami Fl. 33135

Curated by Aluna Curatorial Collective

Aluna Art Foundation inaugurates a new headquarter in Little Havana, Miami, on April 18th of 2015, conceived as a space for art and culture to generate new dynamics in the sector and in the city.

Delgado incorporates sculptures and drawings from the last decade, with media such as soaps, trays or sheets derived from the practices of survival from prison. It also presents serigraphs inspired by an alphabet invented then and large paintings about forms of oppression in a dizzying and globalized world but corroded social indifference. This show will take place with the release of several exhibitions dedicated to the concept of Parrhesia, a term which in ancient Greek meant “speak the truth,”- and the contradictions between censorship and the exercise of freedom of thought in artistic creation and literary.

Glexis Novoa – Painting on Canvas, at Juan Ruiz Galeria, Miami

Thursday, 16 October, 2014 to Saturday, 22 November, 2014

JUAN RUIZ GALERÍA
301 NW 28th Street
Miami, Florida 33127

Painting on Canvas is Cuban artist’s Glexis Novoa’s first solo exhibition at Juan Ruiz Gallery, specifically noteworthy for the following two aspects:  the artist’s revisiting of an early period interrupted by exile in the mid 1990s and the context in which the work was created, Havana, where the artist recently set up a studio after a twenty-year hiatus.  Novoa’s return to the formal qualities of the Etapa Práctica [the Practical Stage] and to the specificity of the Cuban context reveals poignant aspects of contemporary Cuban art today and the artist’s place in it.
