Jamaican Intuitive Art is artwork created by self-trained and non-academically trained artists. These are individuals who through their paintings, drawings, and sculptures express thoughts about life and their surroundings. This annual exhibition is part of the Introduction to Museum Ethics, Policies and Procedures course, intended to teach students about the inner workings of museums. By having firsthand experience creating an exhibition, students are introduced to a portion of the collection, for which they research the artists and art movements, and work in a team to develop the curatorial threads of the exhibition.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The <em>Second Annual Museum Studies Exhibit: Jamaican Intuitive Art</em> exhibition partnered with the Consulate General of Jamaica as part of the schedule of activities commemorating the nation's 50th Anniversary of Independence across the South Florida community.</p> Tue, 10 Jul 2012 00:42:01 +0000 Jose Vasquez - de la Cruz Collection - July 11th, 2012 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Wednesday, July 11, Friday, July 13, Tuesday, July 17</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br /> The workshop will be an introduction to Architecture and its relationship to Art.

In 1962, Balart moved to New York to pursue art studies, after completing his degree in accounting and doing post-graduate studies in political and economic sciences in Havana, Cuba. Balart lectures frequently and his work, explorations of color and light in geometric paintings and light sculpture, has been widely exhibited around the world. His paintings have a geometrical exactness of the concrete art movement, which developed between the 1930s and 1950s, from the work of the futurists and the De Stijl movement. He is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation fellowship and his work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, the Mondriaanhuis in Amersfoort, The Netherlands, and the Museum of Modern Art in Huenfeld, Germany, among others.

This exhibition will open with a reception at the gallery on Saturday, July 14, 2012 from 7-9pm. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><i>Things Beyond Our Control </i>is a group exhibition featuring the work of 18 artists that seeks to address questions of agency, structure and the ability of art, specifically pictorial art, to come into contact with the conditions of its own production. The “beyond” has been, at different moments, a Platonic Ideal, a hallucinatory dreamworld, a utopian vision. But in this specific historical moment, the works in the show raise a slightly darker prospect - that what is beyond our control is specifically our ability to imagine, in a compelling way, any sort of “beyond” at all. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The artworks on display, are <em>things</em> - a term chosen to site the works in the realm of social relations rather than idealist speculation - whose purposiveness has run wild. The loss of a “beyond” forecloses on the spatial and temporal possibility of anything other than “now” and aligns processes of meaning production with an austere perspective - one whose reproducibility is its own raison d’être and main criteria for judgment. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition will feature the following artists: Dan Attoe, Hernan Bas, Naomi Fisher, Keith Haring, Rashid Johnson, Anton Kannemeyer, Marilyn Minter, Jonathan Meese, Richard Mosse, Man Ray, Lucas Samaras, Malick Sidibe, David Shrigley, Hank Willis Thomas, Michael Vasquez, Carlos Vega, Kara Walker, and Chen Wei. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Andrew Reed (born 1995) is a curator and collector who lives and works in Miami, FL. </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> Tue, 10 Jul 2012 00:56:20 +0000 Group Show - Locust Projects - July 14th, 2012 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Locust Projects is pleased to announce a collaborative exhibition by a select group of South Florida High School students. Under the direction of renowned contemporary artist Monica Lopez de Victoria of the TM Sisters, fourteen local high school students have experienced the invigorating and arduous process of conceiving and executing original artworks.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The students, currently attending American Senior High, Design and Architecture Senior High, Dr. Michael M. Krop High, Gulliver Academy, Hialeah High School and New World School of the Arts, were selected from an open call by a committee of local art professionals.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As a hallmark that makes Locust Projects stand out from other art venues, the organization embraces cuttingedge exhibitions and innovation in art. In furtherance of the not-for-profit’s fourteen-year commitment to providing an approachable arts venue for the South Florida community, for the third year, Locust Projects presents exciting new program in which a young generation of artists are given the opportunity to create a collaborative exhibition in a public venue.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The project, developed in Locust Projects’ 5,000 square foot space in Miami’s Design District, culminates with an exhibition, open to the public. The goal is to promote contemporary art and project-based learning as a means to encourage creativity, critical analysis, and problem solving, while building communication skills. This unique initiative allows young artists to learn the practical and exciting aspects of creating a public exhibition in collaboration with their peers.</p> Sat, 21 Jul 2012 05:23:12 +0000 Group Show - Boca Raton Museum of Art - July 18th, 2012 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Bring along your lucky putter July 19 through October 14  into a fully-playable miniature golf course. Designed by artists from across the United States, <em>Big Art: Miniature Golf</em> is a unique exhibition that explores the fusion between art, design and play.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Visitors will see – and play on – a diverse selection of artist-created miniature golf holes (clubs provided), ranging from an orbit around the Sun and into a black hole, playing inside an enormous golf hole cup, a surrealist pinball hole where other players can operate the paddles, to the world’s smallest version of the world’s largest miniature golf course.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Each hole offers a one-of-a-kind experience for all visitors, be they golf lovers, art lovers, or both. <em>Big Art: Miniature Golf</em> promises a singular survey of some of the most whimsical and playful American artists working today.</p> Mon, 09 Jul 2012 19:17:23 +0000 Group Show - The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum - July 18th, 2012 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><i>This and That: Unconventional Selections from the Permanent Collection,</i> which includes works executed in a variety of media and that explore different themes which at first glance seem somewhat unconventional.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>This and That: Unconventional Selections from the Permanent Collection</em> presents works which, at first glance, may seem somewhat unconventional, either through the artist’s treatment of materials or subject matter. These works, which can be complex, mysterious, irreverent or fun, will challenge visitors to reconsider their perceptions of what art is, to stimulate a response and question meanings. The exhibition, selected from the Museum’s permanent collection, features artworks in a wide range of media by artists Enrico Baj, Sandra Bermudez, Ana Albertina Delgado,  Guerra de la Paz,  Graham Hudson,  Sibel Kocabasi, Kate Kretz, Pepe Mar, Leonel Matheu,  Jillian Mayer, Freddy Reitz,  Bert Rodriguez, and Alexandra  Trimino.</p> Tue, 24 Jul 2012 07:46:27 +0000 Maria Lino - The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum - July 18th, 2012 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Shared Threads: Maria Lino’s Portrait of a Shipibo Healer</em> is a collaborative experience where two artists from vastly different cultures and artistic traditions came together in the Amazon region, in Pucallpa, Peru. The results are an extraordinary multi-media integration of tradition, design and technique in a soulful exchange of knowledge, the majority of which occurred over the course of ten intensive days of collecting video footage in Pucallpa. Maria Lino has twice been named a Cintas Fellow and, in 2011, was awarded a Fulbright US Scholar Grant and spent eight months working in Peru on an ongoing series of video portraits; Shared Threads is part of this larger work and includes a selection of Shipibo textiles.</p> Tue, 10 Jul 2012 00:30:59 +0000 Group Show - Nina Johnson - July 19th, 2012 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Gallery Diet is extremely pleased to announce the opening of <em>ASTRAL WEEKS</em> curated by Van Hanos. This show is the second in a two-part series of exhibitions ART BLOG ART BLOG is presenting at Gallery Diet during the summer of 2012. The first exhibition in the series is <em>Leave it to Beavers</em> curated by Gina Beavers.</p> <p><em>ASTRAL WEEKS </em>will feature works by</p> <p>LIZ DESCHENES<br /> BROCK ENRIGHT<br /> KELTIE FERRIS<br /> JACKIE GENDEL<br /> BRION GYSIN<br /> CORINNE JONES<br /> JON KESSLER<br /> NICOLAS LOBO<br /> RORY PARKS<br /> CHAD SCOVILLE<br /> PATRICK WALSH</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />This exhibition stems from the ideas and questions motivated by a single artwork by Brion Gysin. The Dream Machine is an anomaly within the history of art, the only known artwork that is fully activated as the viewer closes their eyes.  Taken as such, it suggests an evaluation of how artwork is viewed; its function, its value, and the language we use to engage with it.<br />  <br /> Bringing together a wide range of practices, each artist investigates both the limits of set material conditions and ways of seeing by exploring physical mechanics, preconceptions of form and abstraction, and the relationship between the object and how it is perceived.<br />  <br /> To view the Dream Machine:<br />  <br /> With eyes closed<br /> Unique to each viewer, the experience cannot be visually documented or reproduced. It expands the gap between seeing and deciphering what is seen. The Machine produces a flickering light frequency akin to alpha waves stimulating the brain’s occipital lobe, causing a waking dream, psychedelic experience with the mind’s eye view. The participant is called to a reinvigorated conversation of what, and how, one sees.<br />  <br /> With eyes open<br /> The viewer is not engaged in the occipital lobe state which allows for a shared experience and for critical observation of the work. Here, the flicker effect producing the mind’s eye view no longer holds sway. At distance, the sculpture becomes a rotating projector transforming the room with perpetual movement of shapes of light; the object itself is a center-piece, evocative of a silent bonfire. Like witnessing a performance, silent film, or sculpture, a familiarity is maintained between the viewer and work.<br />  <br /> This introduction of a new way of viewing, as simple as it may be, presents a dramatic shift in what may be the task set ahead of the artist. This is not to proclaim that new ways of viewing are now criteria for successful work but rather Gysin’s exemplar reminds us, thankfully, that no part of the art making process is fixed---calling to question the status quo of function, inspiration, and execution---and creating a productive artistic dilemma inviting a more engagedand rigorous exploration of ideas. </p> Tue, 03 Jul 2012 13:21:38 +0000 - Armory Art Center WPB - July 20th, 2012 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Sat, 14 Jul 2012 04:33:19 +0000 - Armory Art Center WPB - July 20th, 2012 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Sat, 14 Jul 2012 04:35:33 +0000 Susan Wilders - Armory Art Center WPB - July 31st, 2012 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p><b>Tuition: $45 </b></p> <p><b>Chinese brush painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world.
