FALL SEMESTER 2016 public lectures, at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, FL

Wednesday, Nov 16 – Friday, Nov 18, 2016

Institute of Contemporary Art
4040 NE 2nd Ave,
Miami, FL 33137

Fall Semester invites you to its second iteration of public lectures and open forums happening from Nov. 16—18, 2016.

Fall Semester brings together a diverse group of theorists, critics, researchers, and interested individuals to engage in multifaceted discourse on contemporary society and culture. Through public lectures and a digital platform, the second iteration of Fall Semester addresses current intersections of what constitutes the self. After discussing Miami as a globalized city in its inaugural session in 2014, Fall Semester now turns its focus to the city’s inhabitants, those directly affected by current social and economic change.

Fall Semester is the project of artists Felice Grodin, Odalis Valdivieso, Angela Valella, Marcos Valella, and Antonia Wright. Collectively they have developed an organizational strategy to unite the contributors’ discussions into a cohesive program providing a platform for both speakers and attendees. The project arose from their concerns with global issues which have influenced their individual practice and research.

In 1926, El Lissitzky designed the Abstrakt Kabinett for the Hanover Museum. The spectator, conceived as an active participant in the staging of a modern aesthetic, moved through a changing but perfectly complete environment: The angle of the point of view fused with the total vision, a vision in which the seeing subject, the modern spectator, was in possession of an ordered, progressive and universal visual language. (On Abstract Art, Briony Fer (1997, 2000).

The exhibition Human, so human migrates across media including installation, sculpture, photography, prints, collages and video. For this, the exhibition takes the cue from a seminal phrase, “Is better to be an artwork than to be an artist” by Friedrich Nietzsche after which the show paraphrases its name. It results in a multiple groupings of objects both found and fabricated to construct internal relationships.
