DESCRIPTION

WEIRD MIAMI is the chance to ditch our jaded views of Miami and become "tourists in the ‘weird’ pockets in our own city.” - Adler Guerrier

There is a much more interesting -- sometimes dark -- and never boring side to Miami, one only known to the people who inhabit this town.  For any Miamian a typical day's experiences could range from strange to the swampy sublime.  Is there any such thing as "Flori-duh?"  It is only when one accepts the city in all its glorious weirdness that one can unearth the cracked and quirky gems that lie hidden within.

The artists, both Miamians and non-natives, consider their experiences with people they have come across, through mysterious topographies they have discovered, and objects they have excavated or exhumed, as a way to make sense of or share their unique findings.

Exhibition is free and open to the public.
