Carlos Estévez: CELESTIAL TRAVELER, at Frost Art Museum, Miami

Sept. 12 through Jan. 3, 2016

Frost Art Museum
10975 SW 17th Street,
Miami, FL 33199
 

The Frost Art Museum welcomed artists to display a compilation of their best work, from giant urban-style tapestries to a collection of Everglades landscape paintings.

One of the more unique galleries, and a main attraction for the museum, is the “Celestial Traveler” exhibition by Carlos Estevez, a contemporary Cuban painter and an experimental mixed media artist.

The exhibit showcases an eclectic collection of different forms of artwork that he has worked on for years as he experimented with expressing different thoughts on the universe, religion, emotions and other topics. Viewers are provoked to think on an existential level, trying to guess the meanings behind Estevez’s intricate and symbolic pieces.

Leonel Matheu: Crossroads of the Dystopia at The Frost Art Museum, Miami

JULY 12 – SEPTEMBER 14, 2014

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum
10975 SW 17th Street
Miami, FL, 33199

Cuban-born artist Leonel Matheu has been a prominent figure on the national and international arts scene for over twenty years. Crossroads of the Dystopia is Matheu’s first major survey exhibition. His works range from colored pencil drawings, ink on paper, oil on canvas, to video, multimedia and public installations. Curated by Janet Batet, the exhibition presents more than 20 years of work and provides a comprehensive overview of Matheu’s most distinctive imagery. In describing his body of work, curator Batet says: “If a single symbol could summarize the iconic work of Leonel Matheu, it would be the enigmatic head-a sort of dome-that appears as a constant throughout his work. It serves as a self-portrait and collective portrayal of a nation marked by diaspora and dystopia. This symbol embodies the symptoms and stigma of contemporary global society. With a masterful use of the synthetic graphic design language, Matheu builds up a personal and yet universal iconography that he interweaves in intimate fables of our daily existence. Spirituality, technology, passion, solitude, dreams, chimeras, and deceptions are at the core of his thoughtful body of work.”

Humberto Castro – “Tracing Antilles”

16 October  – 16 February  2014

Opening Reception October 16th from 6-9pm

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at FIU
10975 SW 17th St.
Miami, FL

Humberto Castro executes an artistic journey across the Antilles in an ever-transforming exhibition that conceptually circumnavigates the islands of the Caribbean. FIU’s Frost Art Museum commissioned the Cuban-born contemporary artist to create a new multimedia site-specific installation entitled Tracing Antilles. Curated by Ana Estrada, the exhibition is the result of an artistic investigation of the historical events that have shaped the region’s cultures through colonization and emigration.

Humberto Jesús Castro García (Havana, Cuba, 1957– ) is one of the most active members of the “Generation of the 1980s,” which transformed the aesthetic and conceptual art scene of Cuba. He studied at the San Alejandro National School of Fine Arts and at the Higher Institute of Art in Havana. In 1983 he founded the creative team “Hexagon” in which, alongside other artists, he mounted installations aimed at provoking public participation in the work. In 1999, he moved to the United States and currently lives and works in Miami.

Miami Herald on Agustin Fernandez exhibit at Frost Museum

Agustín Fernández drawings at FIU Frost museum exude lust, vulnerability

BY JOHN COPPOLA

If you know Agustín Fernández’s artwork only from its star turn in Brian DePalma’s 1980 movieDressed to Kill, a new exhibition of the Cuban master’s drawings at the Frost Art Museum offers a more nuanced take on his working method and subject matter.

Fernández’s appearance in an erotic crime thriller is hardly an unexpected pairing. Adept at painting, sculpture and printmaking, he portrayed human sexuality in a way that was both seductive and threatening.

Frost Art Museum
10975 SW 17th Street
Miami, FL 33199
Writing done with fly pigment, ping pong balls in the shape of clouds and paper shapes that seem to go on forever are just a few of the objects that bridge the line between the real and surreal, the natural and man-made and the figurative and abstract works in the next installation of Aesthetics and Values Fine Art Exhibition (A&V) at The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University (FIU). Sixty-four FIU Honors College students worked with 10 of Miami’s most notable artists at the sixth annual A&V exhibition.

“This collaboration has proven to be quite successful,” said Carol Damian, Director and Chief Curator of The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum. “Now in its second year at the museum, this is a unique experience for students to learn the intricacies of curating an exhibition within the confines of a true operational museum.”

Each of these works will have visitors challenging the concept of reality. The A&V 2011 exhibition will feature the works of Daniel Arsham, José Bedia, Ivan Toth Depeña, Jacin Giordano, Fabian Peña, Karen Rifas, Cristina Lei Rodriguez, John Sanchez, Jen Stark and Antonia Wright. Several of the artists have created works specifically for this year’s exhibition.

Maria Brito honored at the Frost Art Museum

Maria Brito is honored at the Frost Art Museum in Miami.

…..Your first encounter with Maria Brito’s show at the Frost Art Museum could be confusing. You may even wonder why it’s there. If so, you’ll please Brito, a rebel at heart who likes controversy. Celebrated Miami artist and FIU alumna, Brito traces her rebellious spirit to the long ago moment she concealed gold jewelry in clothes she wore on a Pedro Pan flight from Havana to Miami. Everyone knew that doing this risked terrible consequences, she recalls, but she couldn’t leave the jewelry, a small bracelet still in her possession, behind.
