“In What We Trust”

Tuesday, November 30 – Sunday, December 5, During Fair Hours

Curated by Julia Draganovic, the show “In What We Trust” gathers a variety of works in which artists show how people, follow sets of beliefs without further questioning. It reveals expectations that depend on cultural, sociological and personal experiences and may help discover some blind spots in our field of vision. ”In What We Trust” is the third video program sponsored by Art Miami. It follows the fair’s well-received 2009 Art Video | New Media Lounge, also curated by Julia Draganovic.
