Pirate radio has a rich history in Miami, one of the most concentrated areas in the world where the production and dissemination of unlicensed sounds have long usurped unused airwaves. Emerging in the early 1980’s and all but busting in the late 1990’s, pirate radio continues to occupy unregulated frequencies despite harsh FCC regulations and corporate agendas. Adopted by independents broadcasting from rooftops to Miami’s mostly flat metro area, pirate radio stations have been effective in prov... [more]

New Work Miami 2013 currently on view at the Miami Art Museum has churned up several points that are both unremarkable and as unique as the composition of the dirt beneath our feet. In Miami, the bay-dredged soil is composed mainly of oolitic limestone, a mixture of sand and the prehistoric creatures that left their legacy in shell. It is an unusual composition found only in this region. Engaging in an experimental exhibition format, curators Diana Nawi and Rene Morales encouraged two design-minde... [more]

There is standing tradition of innovative gallerists choosing to site exhibition spaces in their homes, a tactic embraced so enthusiastically in Miami in fact as to have generated the term “Miami model” with the help of celebrated individuals like Sarah Gavlak among others. In this light the inaugural exhibition of The Jacqueline Falcone Bed and Breakfast entitled Marriage, Blood and Adaptation has a value added approach. In addition to installing works in the proprietor’s bedroom/gallery, Falcone expands... [more]
What is the promise of a vacant warehouse? The easily romanticized notion is being realized by a two-year, rent-free contract for a 20,000 sq ft complex in downtown Miami at the site of the former Capt. Harry’s Fishing Supply. Inaugurated September of 2012, the arrangement is a product of nearly a year of conversation and negotiations between the independent entities of Dimensions Variable (DV), Bas Fisher Invitational, Turn-based Press and the TM Sisters, all Miami-based artist collectives/initiati...
