Artists Open -Everyone is Welcome!!

Add it to your calendar now and RSVP here so you don’t forget!

Fountainhead announces the inaugural edition of Artists Open, the first ever Miami-Dade County-wide open studios day.  Initiated by Fountainhead and supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, 19 artists complexes and studio communities and over 250 artists will open their studios to the public May 11, 2019 from 11am to 6pm.

With the support of Knight Foundation, The Fountainhead will host a countywide open studio event in Miami-Dade county, the first of its kind. The Fountainhead is on a mission to unite artists and raise awareness of the vast, incredible talent right here in our own backyard. 

On Saturday, May 11, 2019, from 11am to 6pm, 19 art studio complexes and studio communities, and artist’s studios within close proximity, will open their doors to the public.  Over 250 artists are participating.  The Fountainhead has been thorough in connecting with as many art studio complexes as possible for the big event. To keep navigation easy, we have focused on complexes and clusters of artist’s communities and studios.Complexes and communities, listed north to south, include; Bridge Red Art Complex, 8365 Studios, Fountainhead Studios, Visual Art Group, the Milk District, The Collective 62, Laundromat Art Space, ArtHood 56, Doral Art Studios, Hialeah Arts District, Bakehouse Art Complex, 27/20 Studios, Oolite Arts (Miami Beach), Mana Contemporary 777, Void Projects, Calle Ocho Arts District, 4700 @ Bird Road Arts District and Deering Estate. Dimensions Variable is hosting their grand opening and will be open 6-10pm ONLY.

Kathryn Mikesell, Co-founder and Executive Director of Fountainhead believes, “intimate access to artists and art opens people’s minds to the value of diversity and fosters dialogue, creating a more tolerant, engaged and inspired world.  To have a voice, artists need a sustainable career.  To be heard and to affect change, artists need a broad audience.” 

Because many of the studios are not generally open to the public, information regarding ADA accessibility, parking and nearby public transportation is being provided for each location via the website. 

As a green initiative we will not be distributing printed information or flyers.  We will be providing a comprehensive map via the website, www.artistsopen.miami linking all complexes and artists and well as utilizing social media and communication platforms.

 

Many artists will have works available for sale in their studios.

RARANAVAL
Buena Vista – Design District
Sunday Mar. 17th, 2019, 3pm

Raranaval is a collective performance in the streets, taking the form of a phenomenal procession. RARA is a popular street procession with dance and music celebrating the end of carnival in Haiti. Bodies are highlighted in colorful costumes to transcend social taboos and question borders between modernity and tradition in a public space. Overall, it is a collective response to contemporary individualist practices and habits.

Dancing from the streets of Buena Vista to the Design District is a symbolic act of reappropriation of a gentrificated neighborhood. Through rhythmic dances, chants and sounds of drums, spectators in the streets will be invited to join this reappropriation act in an intergernerational and uniting spirit. RARA costumes will resonate with contemporary fashion designers and art of the Design District.

A performance curated by

GISCARD BOUCHOTTE

Ft. Artists:

Henri Tauliaut
Rachelle Geneüs

Echo-Nature – Cannibal Desire

EXHIBITION OPENING RECEPTION
Little Haiti Cultural Center
Saturday, Mar. 16th, 2019, 6pm

Exhibition on view from March 13-April 17, 2019

Guided tour (30min)

Cannibal Desire responds to the powerful pulsions, longings, and fantasies of a violence from another time. In this project, the dimension of power defines an ambition, which aims at multiplying new sensations and experiences, free of any rule and form of control. The impetus of cannibal desire thus becomes a state of consciousness, a way to consider the world. Cannibal Desire is composed of 11 Caribbean artists, who share an emerging artistic international journey. Through some selected paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, videos and performances, the curator Jean-Marc Hunt, tries to explore a poetic state of transe, similar to an unlimited fantasy with all sorts of possibilities.

Curated by Jean-Marc Hunt with Marie-Vickles
