He began his career by making a name for himself through charismatic performances where he "channeled" the 2,000-year-old spirit of a shaman named Carlos in front of live audiences and through media broadcasts that have been viewed by millions of people around the world. These performances were the subject of a video work presented in the 2004 Whitney Biennial, and at a solo exhibition at The Kitchen in New York. Alvarez was detained in Krome Detention Center in Miami for identity theft for two months in 2012. During this time he created a series of portraits of his fellow detainees using ballpoint pens and whatever paper he could find. The portraits not only capture the physical being of his sitters, but also their powerful stories.</p> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:57:54 +0000 José Alvarez (D.O.P.A.) - Boca Raton Museum of Art - September 22nd 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Walk the exhibition with the artist to garner insight about his works in the exhibition, <a href="" target="_blank"><em>Jos&eacute; Alvarez (D.O.P.A.), Krome</em></a>.</p> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:59:50 +0000 André Kertész, László Moholy-Nagy, István Szőnyi - Boca Raton Museum of Art - October 18th 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition of art from Budapest includes 100 by Hungarian artists, including such figures as Andr&eacute; Kert&eacute;sz and L&aacute;szl&oacute; Moholy-Nagy, and provides a fascinating microcosm of the social and political turmoil that was raging across Europe, from the late 19th century, through WWI and WWII to the collapse of the Soviet Era, giving rise to the birth of the avant-garde.</p> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:03:58 +0000 Szilárd Cseke - Boca Raton Museum of Art - October 18th 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">To bring our suite of Hungarian exhibitions up to the present, the Boca Museum&rsquo;s Curator of Contemporary Art, Kathy Goncharov, will work with Szil&aacute;rd Cseke, the Hungarian representative to the 2015 Venice Biennale, as he constructs an entirely new site-specific installation.

For centuries, social conditions have placed women and the roles associated with the feminine character, in the house.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Using technology and sculpture as environments, <em>RPM Project</em> focuses on creating monumental narratives from traditionally feminine rituals. In this four-part exhibition, they will create metaphorical realities that address classic dilemmas for women and push the boundaries in today&rsquo;s feminine culture.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Through video, sound and sculpture, RPM&rsquo;s installations serve as pathways in an imaginary house, creating multi-sensory experiences that lead you through a labyrinth within a woman&rsquo;s psyche.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">RPM is made up of Rhonda Mitrani, Patricia Schnall Gutierrez and Marina Font.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:09:27 +0000
