Teresita Fernandez Exhibition: “Amethyst Cinema” at La Galerie Pfriem | Rue Saint-Trophime, Lacoste, FRANCE

Jul. 02 – Sep. 03, 2011

Galerie Pfriem at SCAD Lacoste

Rue Saint-Trophime
84480 Lacoste, France

The SCAD exhibitions department presents a site-specific sculpture by acclaimed artist Teresita Fernández. A continuation of her “Eruption” series and inspired in part by the surroundings of Provence, this work engages the viewer in an active exploration of surface and space. Nuances reveal themselves in her alluring use of materials-in this case a vast plane covered in glass beads that shimmer and reflect the painted surface just beneath. In a subtle yet evocative experience, gallery visitors become immersed in a field of color, form and texture suggestive of topography and natural phenomena.

Anthony Goicolea in group show “Late Summer Blues”, an exhibition curated by Sara Reisman + Ian Daniel- in Brooklyn, New York

July 22-August 7, 2011
Opening Reception: Friday, July 22, 6-9PM


16 Wilson Avenue
Brooklyn, NY

Featuring the work of:

Salvatore Arancio
Anthony Goicolea
Pablo Helguera
Mary Mattingly
Francesco Simeti
Letha Wilson

Late Summer Blues is an exhibition of collage-based works in video, photography, and sculpture that reflects on our collective impulse to reconfigure and manipulate the landscape – both urban and rural – as a means of escape from the compression of summer in the city. Coupled with the desire to find respite from the concrete hardscapes that permeate our vision and movement, Late Summer Blues also suggests an imminent inversion of desire. As the middle of summer passes, a premature sense of nostalgia for the end of summer as an end of freedom comes into focus. How do we spend the last days of summer?

Each of the artists in the exhibition offer us with views of summer that involve conceptual and formal manipulations as a means of re-orienting the viewer’s understanding of place, time, and the atmosphere we occupy.

STOREFRONT was started by Jason Andrew and Deborah Brown. It is Bushwick’s leading gallery presenting both emerging young talent and established historically significant artists.

HOURS: Weekends 1:00-6:00PM or by appointment 646-361-8512.

De La Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space

George Sanchez-Calderon received his MFA from The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1995 and a BFA from Florida International University (FIU) in 1993. For Art Basel Miami Beach, Sanchez produced a re-production of Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye under intersate I-95 in downtown Miami as well as hosted an art circus.

Ajiaco: Stirrings of the Cuban Soul at Newark Museum, NJ

June 8 – August 14, 2011

Newark Museum

49 Washington Street,
Newark, NJ 07102-3176

In 1939, anthropologist Fernando Ortiz characterized Cuban culture as ajiaco, a rich stew consisting of a large variety of ingredients. The ingredients of the “stew” include Catholicism brought in by the Spaniards; the spirituality of the Yoruba slaves and their cultural traditions from Africa; and the Chinese indentured servants who brought Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism. The base of the stew is the indigenous people, such as Tainos, who were almost wiped out by the Spaniards. This exhibition is a survey of modern and contemporary Cuban artists that explores these rich cultural roots of Cuban art. In contemporary society, the “stew” has become thicker and richer as the influences become more complex and intermixed: the artist now borrows not only from the traditional cultures that populated the island, but also appropriates from contemporary everyday life. The exhibition includes works by leading artists in a variety of media, from paintings, works on paper and photography to mixed-media sculpture and installations.

Through August 28, 2011

Boca Raton Museum of Art

501 Plaza Real,
Boca Raton, FL 33432
In Mizner Park

Twentieth-century and contemporary Latin American art is international in nature, and its leading figures have achieved international stature. This sampling of Latin American art from the Museum’s collections introduces the work of several major Latin American artists whose works reflect the interaction of politics, society and art, a dialogue between avant-garde movements and “indigenist” thinking, and the search for cultural -identity.

Twenty works by many of the most important 20th century Latin American artists range from the traditional figurative sculpture of Francisco Zúñiga, to the the modernism of Rufino Tamayo and Matta, the contemporary abstraction of Enrique Castro-Cid and Carlos Cruz-Diez, and the poetic realism of Julio Larraz.

The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu

2411 Makiki Heights Drive
Honolulu, Hawaii 96822

The Contemporary Museum will present both an exhibition and a performance work by American artist Ernesto Pujol (born in Cuba, 1957), a conceptual artist and educator with an interdisciplinary art practice who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Pujol first became known during the 1990s for a series of site-specific installation projects that dealt with collective and individual memory. His more recent work has taken a political turn in addressing subjects such as war, ecological issues, loss, and mourning. Since 2006, Pujol has been exploring the notions of interiority and public and private spaces. He strives to reclaim public space from the noise and congestion to create silent spaces of solitude and seeks to awaken the consciousness of the viewer through the creation of such spaces.

ALL ABOUT WATER, videos by MARIA LINO at 6th street container

June 17, 2011 7-10pm

6th street container

1155 (rear) sw 6th street
LiHa (Little Havana) Fl

To Maria Lino, water is a treasure that we seek for both internal and external survival.

It safely cradles us in the womb and supports us as we float on its surface. It can also overpower us
regardless of our physical strength.
Water can be a barrier between two destinations, and as an artist navigating two cultures separated
by a body of water, it has defined her sense of isolation and connection, of safety and freedom.

Ms Lino has always lived in port cities. She now lives in South Florida where humidity is a constant palpable sensation.
She produces multi-channel video installations recreating this feeling, and in the process, rediscover the landscape of home, its light, physicality, atmospheric changes, and the enticement of being voluntarily in water, whether for pleasure, adventure or escape.
Maria Lino’s process is dynamic and interrelated to my daily activities. She observes and records the landscape and the cityscape, and their reflections in any appearance of water: morning dew, rain, puddles, or the ocean.

It’s a live exhibition that will talk to you only if you talk back to it. This living and breathing exhibition will tell you stories, and the more time you spend there the more it will speak to you. It will teach you to dance, and it will ask you to listen. It will require positioning and it will let you get lost. If you are afraid of intimacy – you better not enter.

Ruben Millares in group show NOISE FIELD at Dorsch Gallery, Miami

Friday, June 10, 2011 – Saturday, July 9, 2011

Dorsch Gallery

151 NW 24th Street,
Miami, FL 33127

Noise Field examines the field of consciousness where language patterns begin to form or where, conversely, they dissolve into nonsense. In this in-between place, language has an unsettling vertigo effect. Dreamlike logic rules and nightmare characters are born.

Noise Field looks at written, spoken and non-verbal languages. Throughout the exhibition, words fall apart and images get caught between old and new media. Technology is cast as a set of questionable tools that produce chaotic excess in combination with incomplete information – a psychologically murky terrain that can produce as much anxiety as the dark space under the bed.

Clara Morera, Reinaldo Arenas, and The Color of Summer at Imago Art Gallery, Miami

On this occasion, Imago announces its new exhibition “Clara Morera, Reinaldo Arenas and The Color of Summer” (Homage), a tribute to the Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas. Considered by many as one of the most eloquent and daring literary figures of his generation, Arenas was not only a novelist, poet, essayist, and a playwright, but also a sensitive and spiritual individual beset by the forces of political and sexual repression throughout much of his life.

Opening Reception,
Friday June 10, 2011 7:30pm – 10:00pm

Fredric Snitzer Gallery
2247 NW 1st PL
Miami, FL 33127


This June at Fredric Snitzer Gallery, we modestly aim to pay homage to Kurt Schwitters in our group exhibition MERZBAU – NOW. In this group exhibition we will present works by artists Maria Martinez-Canas, John Bock, Michael Vasquez, Christian Holstad, Ida Ekblad, Bert Rodriguez, Mauricio Gonzalez, Yasue Maetake and Jose Bedia. Kurt Schwitters’ comprehensive influence on art history resonates with each of these artists uniquely. While each of the participating artists has a distinctive style of their own that has surely evolved since the early 20th century, cohesively their collages, sculptures, photographs, and installations are intertwined with the multidimensional artistic relationships that Kurt Schwitters himself explored.
