Tico Torres. Paintings. Retrospective.
Tico is a world class musician who is internationally recognized as the drummer for the rock band, Bon Jovi. He is showing his paintings at the MacArt gallery displaying his wide-ranging talent. It is an unprecedented retrospective of his fine art.

His aspirations as a painter are as ambitious as those as Tico the musician. His growing body of work continues to receive notice of collectors and the art press. Whether sketching while on tour with his band, Bon Jovi, or painting in his New Jersey studio or home in Florida, Tico's inspiration comes from life experiences.

Beloved Structure: The Argentine Legacy.
Curated by Eva Grinstein
Fabián Burgos, Martín Di Paola, Marcolina Dipierro, Verónica Di Toro, Lucio Dorr, Silvia Gurfein, Silvana Lacarra, Adriana Minoliti, Karina Peisajovich, Pablo Siquier and Andrés Sobrino.
Latin American Abstract Geometric painting, with its strong ties to Europe yet with its undeniably great, regional protagonists, has left an enormous legacy to the contemporary art scene of the continent.

In this opportunity, Alejandra von Hartz Gallery has invited the curator,
Eva Grinstein,to present a carefully selected group of artists, who inherited and continued this rich tradition in Argentine art. They “reinterpret and---in a way--- render homage to the masters of the vanguard, who changed the direction of Latin American art in the mid 20th century.”

Grinstein notes: “This selection presents the work of eleven accomplished Argentine artists of the new generation, who through the use of very diverse materials and techniques---painting, reliefs, light pieces, and drawings---reignites and updates the passion for structure that characterized the artists that challenged the paradigms of representation.”

Carlos Irijalba, Twilight, 1
20 x 120 cm


Until December 26th
Carlos Irijalba.
Twilight.
Irijalba, (Spain, 1979) presents us with an exhibition about the way in which Western culture perceives reality through the use of artificial light. The placement of a light fixture, like those used in football stadiums with expectant audiences, within a natural, untouched forest creates a surreal atmosphere. The focus shifts away from the habitually illuminated scene, to the artifact that emanates light.

The artist generates an amalgam of contrasts: western culture, which reconstructs reality with lighting effects with the eastern concept, which focuses more on shadows. We are faced with a critique of the society of the spectacle, the insignificance, the noise and the general conformity that dominates contemporary culture.

Dina Mitrani Gallery opened in November 2008 and specializes in international contemporary photography. The gallery currently represents eight emerging and mid-career artists and will be offering a lecture series and photo-based books. The gallery is committed to promoting its artists, as well as working with independent curators to produce unique group exhibitions

Jorge Perianes, Untitled, 2009. 2 panels: 40 x 17” in. each.


Until January 2nd., 2010
Denarrations.

Collective exhibition: Rodrigo Facundo (Colombia); Cristina Lucas(Spain); Aernout Mik (Holland); Jorge Perianes (Spain); Tracey Snelling (US); Vibeke Tandberg(Norway) and Nina Yuen (US). Curator: Gerardo Mosquera

This is the first work curated by internationally known curator and art criticGerardo Mosquera in a commercial venue. Mosquera’s guidance as an art critic and curator was seminal during the ‘80s, a period known as the Cuban Renaissance in the arts. Most of his curatorial work has been done outside of Cuba, related to museums and institutions worldwide. He has also worked associated to prestigious institutions and organizations such as the Prince Klaus Foundation, Holland and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York. As an art critic he has written seminal texts, published in important books and catalogues. As curator he has organized and presented many influential exhibitions in diverse institutions.

In Denarrations Gerardo Mosquera brought together these seven contemporary artists whose works are aiming at similar concerns. According to Mosquera:

“This exhibition presents works that use a narrative structure and simultaneously discuss, deconstruct or even subvert narrative conventions. While the artists included have very different poetics, and their works range from installations to video-performances to paintings, all of them share a will to narrate and to denarrate. These denarrations tell diverse stories by re-inventing narration in unexpected ways and questioning the internal mechanisms of narrative. The works relate distinct tales –some humorous, some disturbing–, but their main story is story-telling. This is not a conscious, programmatic or conceptualized process by the artists, but just a natural way to deal with complex meaning in their works.”

Manuela Ribadeneira. If you are sinister…
Ribadeneira's Ribadeneira's practice can be understood as an interrogation around the phenomena of the territories. Territories interpreted not only as physical entities but also in relation to the processes that contrast ideological, political and identity wise horizons. The poetry contained in her works have the virtue of relativizing the individual gaze towards the sensible themes that she depicts, making the perceptive experience complex by not using obstinate rhetoric that wants to teach a lesson or denounce.

Until January 30th , 2010
Jose Bedia.
Ritual of Passage
First solo show of new work for Cuban contemporary artist Jose Bedia to take place in Miami, in 2 years. The artist will exhibit over 15 new mixed media paintings in which he continues to explore connections between our spiritual origins, indigenous cultures and our contemporary selves. Omar Pascual-Castillo writes:

“We have the truth, the reality, of a man who finds in these cultures the hopes of life and the solution to the ethical-religious disaster of contemporary society, a man who finds in art a way to make them worthy as “new fetishes of adoration”, as if making a “conceptual ready-made” that uses art to recreate the force of his contents, of his inheritance, of his energy.”

Born in Havana, Cuba in 1959 Jose Bedia has come to the forefront of contemporary artistic production as is recognized as one if not the most important artist to have emerged from Cuba during the past 20 years. He has exhibited in countless internationally renowned museums, receiving a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1994 and is part many of the most significant private and public collections across the globe including the MOMA in New York, The Whitney Museum, the Tate Gallery and the Hirschorn Museum in Washington D.C.


There will also be a retrospective of the work of Jose Bedia at the MIA Art Fair 2010taking place 7th – 10th of January at the Miami Beach Convention Center

Jesus Soto
Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999


Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

Kito Mbiango. 'L'Orange Elegans',2008
Mixed Media on Canvas




Kito Mbiango. Solo Show
Mbiango draws from his wide-ranging travels and photographic experience in producing works that excite the imagination by crossing and blurring cultural borders between Eastern and Western spheres of influence. Elements of post-colonial commentary (initiated via found 18th and 19th Century engravings in the style of John James Audubon, J. Barralet, and James Fittler) and modern cultural references (through the use of turn-of-the-century photography and silkscreens) converge in a rich, complex layering of color and graphic embellishment.

Above all, however, emerging artist Mbiango’s more pressing concern is the unity of both artistic and human ingredients: the integration of Eastern and Western influences seeks to peacefully reconcile the inherent cultural differences so ubiquitous in postmodern society. Overall, the goal for
Mbiango is to gather both art and its viewer into one stunning, deeply spiritual achievement.

Kito Mbiango was born in Brussels in 1966. He is completely self-taught in his technique and utilizes multiple production methods including image transfer and mixed media assemblage all applied meticulously by hand.

Carlos Betancourt. Solo Exhibition.
Lapidus Infinitus

In Betancourt’s most recent photographic artwork, the artist continues to assemble explosive compositions consisting of thousands of photographs of objects, people, flowers and other elements that occupy the superb glitzy realm of beauty for which he is known. The images appear in their full kitsch splendor, possessed by an enchanting light and seemingly crystallized by a magical sorcerer

In addition, there is a sprawling three-dimensional installation of multiple column pedestals, each supporting an accumulation of auspicious objects to be worshipped. A symmetrical assembly creates spaces for interaction within this fantastical world. As with the photographic compositions, this large-scale installation, Portrait of a Garden, iconizes these pop objects the artist has gifted with a unique sense of dignity.

This exhibition presents new work in progress from José Antonio Hernández Diez and will evolve as it travels to new venues. After its presentation at KaBe Contemporary this exhibition will travel to Periférico Caracas among other venues in 2010.

This show features the Venezuelan artist’s first solo exhibition in Miami, his most recent work, an installation consisting of video and photography, reflecting the sentimental side of human beings. People who were touched by a personal tragedy, perhaps the loss of a loved one due to everyday crime, seek some sort of consolation or closure. His work explores time travel and the possibility to say one last goodbye or undo facts, such as death, thus contributing to a more humane and happy society.

Artformz winter group show addresses the current global concern for “money”. How money, the abundance of it, or the utter lack of it, affects everyone’s lives is the topic of conversation everywhere. The outcome has been decidedly personal with each artist coming up with decidedly different work in each of their own styles, yet all reflect the current focus on currency. Everywhere there seems a conversation of sales, consumption, need, the economy, the paycheck, the job, retirement, bills, mortgages, college funds, layoffs, and studio rent.

The dilemma is more relevant now as artists tiptoe through this recession. While we listen to the hype and propaganda on how everything is getting better, the work struggles to get made and each artist finds there own creative way to survive. Money certainly does facilitate making art, but at the same time, the lack of an abundance of money in the wrong hands, may just possibly make better art.

The exhibition explores the mundane, the gritty, the sordid and the glamorous side of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District. It will feature an array of photography, sculptures, light installations, and mixed media. And in the middle of it all lies the thrilling marquee-like lights of Klaus Guingang’s “MAFIART.”

This is a collaboration of video installations with O Cinema, it is a video art gallery showcasing the work of video and new media artist –with particular emphasis on local artists. Relatively nascent to the art scene, video art emerged during the 1960s and 1970s and has engendered artist with opportunities to express themselves through motion and technology.

One of today’s leading fashion photographers, Arnaldo Anaya-Lucca, will be presenting his first fine art solo exhibition, “Adam and Eve,” at Luis Perez Galeria in Wynwood, Miami during this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, hosted by Manuel Norena. Anaya-Lucca is a renowned fashion photographer known for capturing the world of Ralph Lauren rethinks classic imagery as his own personal expression of events in history.

For his first exhibition of its type, Anaya-Lucca rethinks classic imagery in a more personal way, animating events in history with a curiosity that is both critical and sensual. Adam and Eve is a nude study inspired by 17th and 18th Century renaissance paintings. The images reflect the struggle of sensuality, temptation and shame that underlies the human condition as well as the joy of sexual innocence. The artist also wanted to address situations where the line between internal and external sense of self was/is in conflict throughout human history. The set design for the exhibition is also by Manuel Norena with Jed Root in New York.

Sensory Overload. Curated by Lauren Wagner
In its 2,600 square foot Main Gallery, BAC artists confront the idea of the overwhelming sensory qualities of Art Basel in Sensory Overload. Based on the traditional five senses- touch, hear, see, smell, and taste, BAC artists cross and blend these senses together to create an experience of a sequence of synesthetic encounters, attacking one sense and at the same time evoking another.

5X7
The BAC presents a small works exhibition 5X7 in its Swenson Gallery. All of the work measures 5" X 7" or 7" X 5". The show will consist of a variety of media, from painting, drawing, sculpture, fiber art and on. There is sure to be something to please every aesthetic. Patrons are encouraged to purchase these small, unique works of art at $100.00 each.

When a guest purchases a piece from this exhibition, a photo will be taken of them and their new purchase. The picture will then be hung on the wall in place of the piece, thus becoming part of the exhibition.

Through a punctual framing and a poetic in focus lens Azoulay renders evocative sites many of them already gone. From old towns to abandoned motels, from gas stations to bars interiors, from neon signs to eroded old trucks, from fast food to fancy dinners, from panoramic lonely planes to close ups of old west relics, Americana show exposes a parcel of the American identity and its paradoxical realities.

Myth and reality intertwine in the complex composite of images of Rodeo Cowboys, majestic Las Vegas resorts, native cemeteries, old silos and factories, defining the present tense of the American culture, its history and geography.”
Milagros Bello, Ph.D.

Daniel Bottero. The Love of the Poet
“Our past, our present and our future all influence my paintings. Each painting I create is an essential part of my inner being. My work speaks many languages, communicates on several levels at the same time. A unique psychological interaction between reality and fantasy, one that transports the observer into a dreamlike encounter with the sublime.” Daniel Bottero

"Bottero is ... a poet painter, that is, a painter who uses the medium to convey the poetry of his emotions ..." Donald Kuspit


Today Bottero works in his studios in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami and in Buenos Aires. Bottero graduated from the National School of Fine Arts, Buenos Aires. He earned his Master’s Degree at the Academia Italiana di Belle Arti, Lucca, Italy. From 1986 to 1990 Bottero resided and worked in Paris. Since 1990 he has lived and worked in New York. Bottero’s work has been shown throughout the world. His paintings are featured in the corporate collections of Citibank, Xerox, Avon, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan Chase Bank.

Andres Ferrrandis, Wall, Mixed Media Installation / Dimension Variable.


Until January 10
Andres Ferrandis. THAW
Andrea Chehebar. Purusha (Project Room)
About THAW: Using color, non-conventional media and materials, and strategic placement, Andres Ferrandis accomplishes pieces that capture the spectator’s curiosity for truth and thought. Andres’ work depicts an evident influence from constructivist and architectural trends. The appeal lies in the fact that there is no abstraction in the creative process of his pieces. Born in Spain and a resident of Miami since 2002, Ferrandis’ concept of footprints left behind is portrayed in his work through his tactical minimal brushstroke and linear panels; just as time has passed by in our dimension, his brush has passed leaving reminiscent color behind.

Purusha (Project Room)
About
Andrea Chehebar: As a Miami Resident, this Colombian artist will be presenting Photography, Video Installation, and mixed media pieces

“We are all different on the outside; no one human being is or thinks exactly the same as another. So, what is it that unites us all? What is that imperishable, unchanging essence we all seem to share?

Purusha, pure consciousness, is the divine self that abides in all beings and guides us. What is due to us will eventually reach us naturally and with no need to worry.
