Miami Art Week Exhibits Latino Artists, Culture and Style
The last month of the year is exiting for the locals of South Florida with the launching of Miami Art Week 2019 on December 5. It is also high time for collectors and curators of the art world, including Latino artists, to gather in the name of art with events like Art Basel Miami 2019 and other shows scattered throughout the city, according to an article by Remezcla. To give you an idea and help you decide which ones to explore, here are some deets on exhibits and events featuring Latino and Latin American artists this Miami Art Week:
Your Miami Art Week won't be complete without visiting Art Basel. The sought-after art show features renowned artists and more than 260 galleries from all over the world, including the Barro Arte Contemporáneo from Buenos Aires, Argentina and Galería Agustina Ferreyra from Mexico City.
Art Basel 2019 will run until December 8 at Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, Florida. For those interested, the entrance fee costs $65 for adults and $45 for students with ID.
Faena Festival: The Last Supper
Open to public until December 8, the entry is free at Faena Festival: The Last Supper at Faena Hotel and Faena Beach.
If last year, artist George Sanchéz-Calderón set a house on fire on the beach, this year, the fetival promised to be just as powerful and culturally relevant. For its second year, the festival is anchored in the theme, "transformative bridge across the Americas, between the south and the north, the popular and experimental." Some of the highlights of the festival are Argentine artist Gabriel Chaile's bread-baking ceremony during the opening at the Faena Hotel, and wCuban-American artist Ana Mendieta's two seminal film pieces, Creek and Alma Silueta en Fuego, which are presented on an LED-board floating up and down Miami Beach.
