ArtSlant - Openings & events en-us 40 - The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum - October 1st 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">As one of the most scrutinized and depicted subjects, the human face is perhaps the most important theme in the history of art. The&nbsp;face has perpetually captivated and inspired artists and artisans. From ancient Egypt to the Renaissance, from photography to Pop&nbsp;Art, man's fascination with the face is eternal. Drawn from the permanent collection of the Frost Art Museum.</p> Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:39:11 +0000 Koizumi Kishio - The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum - October 1st 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">The Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 was the worst natural disaster ever to strike Japan. Using art as a social record, the woodblock&nbsp;print artist Koizumi Kishio (1893-1945) produced this famous art series between 1928 and 1940. These works are fond memories of&nbsp;the old imperial capital, as well as his accounts of the resurrection of Tokyo.&nbsp;</p> Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:41:19 +0000 - The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum - October 1st 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">A Frost Art Museum Community Gallery Exhibition</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 2013, Professor Tudor Parfitt, Director of FIU Global Jewish Communities Program, and the world's leading authority on the Lost Tribes of Israel, led an expedition to Papua New Guinea, accompanied by 4 FIU students, to try to unravel the mystery of the Gogodala people's identity. This exhibition, a representative presentation of recent Gogodala carvings and other martials, brings this research to life.&nbsp;</p> Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:43:27 +0000 - Museum of HistoryMiami - October 10th 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Fifty years ago The Beatles came to America. On Friday, February 7, 1964, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr arrived from the U.K. and stepped onto American soil for the first time as a band. After an appearance in New York City, on Sunday, February 16, 1964, The Beatles flew to Miami Beach. They made their second television appearance on&nbsp;<em>The Ed Sullivan Show</em>, which this time was broadcast live from the Napoleon Ballroom of the Deauville Hotel in Miami Beach. Ed Sullivan introduced them to a captivated American audience of more than 73 million viewers&mdash;at the time a television record.&nbsp; And just like that Beatlemania was launched!</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Ladies &amp; Gentlemen&hellip; The Beatles!,</em>&nbsp;a traveling exhibition curated by The GRAMMY Museum&reg; at L.A. LIVE and Fab Four Exhibits examines the musical and cultural significance of The Beatles&rsquo; arrival on the U.S. and American culture. The exhibition covers the period from early 1964 through mid-1966&mdash;the years Beatlemania ran rampant in America. During this time the band affected nearly every aspect of pop culture, including fashion, art, advertising, media, and, of course, music. On display are more than 400 items from private collectors and The GRAMMY Museum&reg; including memorabilia, records, rare photographs, tour artifacts, video footage, as well as correspondence, instruments, interactive displays, and an oral history booth in which visitors can leave their own impressions of The Beatles.</p> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 10:30:15 +0000 James McNabb - Robert Fontaine Gallery - October 11th 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Robert Fontaine Gallery</strong>, located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District, will showcase new works by artist <strong>James McNabb</strong> in a solo exhibition entitled &ldquo;<strong>Metros</strong>.&rdquo; The <strong>opening reception</strong> will be held <strong>Saturday, October 11th&nbsp;</strong> from <strong>5 to 8 p.m</strong>. during Wynwood&rsquo;s Second Saturday Art Walk. The <strong>exhibit will be on view October 9th through October 28th 2014</strong>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">James McNabb is a Philadelphia based artist working primarily in wood. His creations of cityscape inspired sculptures explore sociological concepts regarding transformations of cities and urban landscapes, their beauty, uniqueness, and overdevelopment. In his sculptures, McNabb uses scrap pieces of wood,, some with very unique and alluring characteristics, that are contextualized to draw new meaning out of the material and force the viewer to create his or her own perspective of the urban landscape. McNabb blends traditional woodworking technique with experimental mark making using a bandsaw. This intuitive process, referred to as &ldquo;sketching with a bandsaw&rdquo; allows the artist to generate forms rapidly, working through new and exciting ideas without preliminary design development. This approach to woodworking is an attempt to capture the fast paced, crude mark-making that is commonly found in contemporary urban art. The resulting works in &ldquo;METROS" are distorted compositions of abstracted architectural forms, exploring the limitless possibilities of the urban landscape and our human relationship to it.</p> Sun, 28 Sep 2014 18:37:29 +0000 Alexander Solotzew, Goran Tomcic, Connie Mae Oliver, Joana Fischer, Bianca Pratorius, Christoph Morlinghaus, HENNING HAUPT, PIP BRANT, Babette Hershberger - Deering Estate at Cutler - October 15th 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">The reception for the Fall Fine Art Exhibit Wunderbar will be held on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Deering Estate at Cutler, and is free and open to the public. Light refreshments and a cash bar will be available. The exhibit will be on display daily, 10 am to 4 pm, from October 4 &ndash; November 21, 2014 and is free with regular Estate admission.&nbsp;<br /><br />The art exhibition Wunderbar, a featured element of our ticketed signature fundraising event,&nbsp;Wine on Harvest Moon&nbsp;on Saturday, October 11, 2014, brings together South Florida, German-born/based and German-American artists whose contemporary works show influences from the Modernist and "Dekorative" movements as well as from self-defined German cultural traditions.<br /><br />Curator Kim Yantis, wishes to present this group exhibition as &ldquo;a diverse selection of personal voices and interpretations.&rdquo; Each artist has been asked to write a brief statement to accompany their work where they reflect on the &ldquo;German&rdquo; influences within the scope of their practice.&nbsp;<br /><br />Artist Statement: Joana Fischer<br />Born in Ahlen, Germany and raised near Muenster, Germany, my work developed when I was studying in the atelier of Guenter Wintgens. Coming from a small town in Germany and now living in Miami, almost everything I encounter is manufactured and it is almost impossible to find seclusion. My work generally reflects this conflict between my urban situation and my longing for nature. The backgrounds are often broad and vague color fields combined with intimately drawn narratives; elements from childhood memories of Germany and secluded landscapes that I have come across in my travels.&nbsp;<br /><br />Artist Statement: Pip Brant<br />The Verfremdungseffekt (alienation effect) of German playwright, Bertolt Brecht&rsquo;s epic theater, discovered in my graduate school years, is the German thread throughout my work. My works don&rsquo;t entertain; they destroy illusion and appeal to reason, through contradictions or absurdity.&nbsp;<br /><br />Artist Statement: Christoph Morlinghaus&nbsp;<br />My German upbringing and education helps me to perceive and make sense of the sometimes strange world that surrounds me in here the States. Exactitude, craft, technique, emotional detachment and a need to bring order into chaos are (stereotype) German virtues that are essential for my work. The images in the show are influenced by the German 'Neue Sachlichkeit' (New Objectivity) movement of the Weimar Republic as practiced by e.g. Albert Renger-Patzsch and August Sander.</p> Fri, 26 Sep 2014 14:05:53 +0000 Zammy Migdal - Armory Art Center WPB - October 24th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Zammy Migdal, a native of Tel Aviv, Israel, has created a language in metal that transforms spaces and walls into shapes, colors and shadows. In his work, energy flows to form clarity, definition, and purpose. He shapes metal into forms, but it is the emptiness inside the forms that holds the shadows. While some of his very architectural work is firmly grounded on Earth, other work has its origins in his interest to suspend objects against gravity. Such work is created by the relationships among metal foregrounds, attaching pins, spaces, light and shadows, in which hard metal resembles ribbons that flow and twist in the wind.</p> <p><strong>Armory Art Center &ndash; East Gallery</strong><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p>Zammy Migdal is also showing large polychrome steel sculptures from October 25, 2014-April 30, 2015<br /> <strong>Armory Art Center Sculpture Garden</strong></p> Sun, 28 Sep 2014 18:11:03 +0000 - Red Dot Miami - December 2nd 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p align="center"><span style="font-size: xx-large; color: #e91522;"><strong>Let&rsquo;s keep together!</strong></span></p> <p align="center"><span style="font-size: x-large;"><strong><span style="color: #e91522;">Teaching Tolerance on Canvas</span> </strong></span></p> <p align="center"><span style="font-size: x-large;"><strong>&nbsp;</strong></span></p> <p align="center"><span style="font-size: x-large;"><strong>Carmen Rantzuch-Doll </strong></span></p> <p align="center"><span style="font-size: large;"><strong>at Red Dot Miami 2014</strong></span></p> <p align="center"><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p align="center">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <img src="" alt="" />&nbsp;</p> <p align="center"><strong><em>&nbsp;Copyright Carmen Rantzuch-Doll</em></strong></p> <p align="center"><strong><em>&nbsp;&ldquo;Community&rdquo;, 2013, Mixed Media on Canvas, 50 x 60 cm</em></strong></p> <p align="center"><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In the heart of Midtown Miami&rsquo;s Wynwood Art District, Red Dot presents upcoming contemporary art in an elegant, gallery-style exhibition space.

The artist, who lives in Freiburg (Germany), is represented&nbsp; at the booth of Gallery Studio 26 Eastvillage, NYC.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Working in her own studio in Opfingen, Carmen Rantzuch-Doll describes that she feels tension, but also harmony and inner freedom during the creative process of painting. In reviewing her artistic concept, she explains the meaning behind&nbsp;her work: "My paintings are playful explorations of life. I am thinking about how people are living together, how they respect each other, their dignity and their individual needs. My aim is to feel the spirit of live, no matter if in the urban space or in the country side &ndash; this approach of living together in peace connects us all.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Carmen Rantzuch-Doll studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lahr, Germany (2006-2010).

How are people living together? How do they communicate &ndash; in the neighbourhood, in villages, in social relationships or social media? Carmen Rantzuch-Doll proposes how contemporary art can offer a language to read them against the complexity and concerns of our times. The final result are direct and spontaneous gestures on canvas, which give the paintings their inescapable explosiveness.&nbsp;It is her central motivation that contemporary art should be experienced in dialogue with the audience and community.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Carmen Rantzuch-Doll seeks to bring a playful spirit to the task of discovering what is needed, what is plausible, and what is challenging within the context of daily life &ndash; so let&rsquo;s keep together.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><span style="color: #e91522;"><strong>LOCATION</strong></span></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Red Dot Miami</strong></p> <p><strong>December 2-7, 2014</strong></p> <p>Wynwood Arts District</p> <p>3111 NE 1st<sup>t</sup> Avenue at NE 31<sup>st</sup> St</p> <p>Miami, Fl 33137</p> <p></p> <p><strong></strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Gallery</strong></p> <p>Marina Reiter Gallery</p> <p>179 East 3<sup>rd</sup> Street</p> <p>Manhattan, NYC 100009</p> <p>US States</p> <p><strong></strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Opening Party</strong></p> <p>Tuesday, December, 2: &nbsp;6-10pm</p> <p>VIP Preview : Access for VIP Cardholders &amp; Press</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Fair Hours:</strong></p> <p>Wednesday, December 3:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 11am - 5pm</p> <p>Thursday, December 4: &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 11am - 6pm</p> <p>Friday, December 5: &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 11am - 8pm</p> <p>Saturday, December 6:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 11am - 8pm</p> <p>Sunday, December 7: &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 11am - 6pm</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>General Admissions:</strong></p> <p>Day Pass: $15&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Week Pass: $ 25</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><span style="color: #e91522;"><strong>CONTACT ARTIST</strong></span></p> <p><strong>Carmen Rantzuch-Doll</strong></p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><span style="color: #e91522;"><strong><span style="color: #e91522;"></span></strong></span></a></p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><span style="color: #e91522;"><strong></strong></span></a></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><span style="color: #e91522;"><strong>CONTACT&nbsp; AUTHOR</strong></span></p> <p><strong>Source/ Copyrights</strong></p> <p>Dr. Barbara Aust-Wegemund</p> <p><span style="color: #e91522;"><a href="" rel="nofollow"><span style="color: #e91522;"></span></a></span></p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><span style="color: #e91522;"><span style="color: #e91522;"><strong></strong></span></span></a></p> <p>&nbsp;<strong><br /></strong></p> <p><strong>About the Author:&nbsp; </strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">PhD Barbara Aust-Wegemund, born in Zuerich/ Switzerland, is a German Art Historian and Managing Director at Art History Consulting (AHC).
