Art Wynwood 2015
Last FEBRUARY 12-16, 2015 Art Wynwood fine art fair featured 70 international galleries presenting emerging, cutting edge, contemporary and modern works and will have its own distinct identity and design. A unique feature is the highlight of street art, murals, pop surrealism and other genres from the contemporary underground movement.
Art Wynwood is perfectly positioned to further the growing worldwide recognition of this movement by providing the enthusiast and seasoned art world traveler alike a distinctive opportunity to explore, learn and collect one of the most significant art movements of our time. Art Wynwood 2015 coincided with the 27th edition of the prestigious Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach (based less than five miles from the Art Miami Pavilion), which transforms Collins Avenue into a multimillion-dollar presentation of yachts and super-yachts.
The art fair showcased a diverse range of fresh and edgy works by established, mid-career and emerging international contemporary and urban street artists from around the globe. Art Wynwood shines a spotlight on Midtown Miami and the Wynwood Arts District as an international cultural destination flourishing yearlong. The fair will continue to distinguish the Wynwood Arts District as Miami’s epicenter where art, fashion, design and the culinary arts intersect.
February 14, 2015 - April 26, 2015Mónica Bengoa’s works in felt, paper, embroidery may be best understood within the interdisciplinary contexts of contemporary artistic practices. The artist’s grounding in Post-Minimalist strategies including repetition, labor-intensive hand work, and subjective content reflect her passionate interest in the ordinary details of seemingly unimportant activities, events, places, things, and routines as subject matter.
Exercices de Style / Exercises in Style are directly based on the French writer Raymond Queneau’s book of the same title. Bengoa has reproduced nineteen stories from Queneau’s ninety-nine stories, each of which is an unusually inventive literary variation of the first brief story titled “Notations / Notation.” Bengoa has followed Queneau’s titles for each story and retained the page numbers on each of her works. Her principal objective was to create a visual form in diverse mediums corresponding to his innovative literary exercises.
In realizing this extraordinary visual-literary dialogue, Bengoa developed a series of processes, beginning with tearing out the pages, wrinkling them, photographing them, working on them digitally, hand tracing and then cutting each word to create a visual transformation of a literary gem.
Nationally and internationally recognized, her work was shown at The Drawing Center, New York (2014); MOCA Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2007); 52 Venice Biennial (2007); IV Biennale Internationale de la Photographie et des Arts Visuels de Liège, Musée d’Art moderne et d’Art contemporain, Liège, Belgium (2004). Among her many awards: The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, New York (2015); FONDART Grant, Ministry of Culture, Santiago. Bicentennial Grant. Project, “Felt as a new material for an optic exercise.” (2009)
The translations of the French stories in English will be accessible as an e-book in an iPad inside the gallery. This exhibition is curated by Julia P. Herzberg, guest curator. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile, Embassy of Chile provided the transportation of the art work. Additional support has been provided by the Facultad de Artes, The Pontifical Catholic University of Chile and the Isabel Aninat Galeria de Arte in Santiago.
The Perez Museum
Getting ready for Art Basel Season in Miami
The Perez Museum, after all, your new museum of art in Miami is a $131 million haute-design showcase for modern and contemporary work that also manages to extend an open, dare we say homespun, welcome. The PAMM's Art Basel Season public exhibitions will open its doors to the public on December 4th 2014 until late February 2015.
When it opens to the public at the edge of Biscayne Bay on Wednesday, on time and on budget, the strikingly original and meticulously thought-out Perez Art Museum Miami will put art front and center on the city’s landscape for the first time. In doing so, supporters and civic leaders fervently hope it will redefine Miami as a cultural destination.
With wrap-around verandas cooled by lush gardens and a monumental overhanging roof, 360-degree views of bay and city from within and without, and an adjacent new plaza, park and bay walk, the unusually porous museum could also become something else, backers say: a spectacular new front porch for the people of Miami.
PAMM leaders asked the architects not to strain for the iconic, but to come up with a cost-efficient building that would reflect Miami and make the most of the site’s waterfront location in a public park. That also meant making the place inviting to a broadly diverse audience, and flexible enough to show off a growing collection that attempts to connect modern Latin American art to its U.S. and European counterparts.
Beaux Arts Festival of Art | Miami 2015

Location: University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida (South) Show Dates: 1/17/15 - 1/18/15

The Beaux Arts Festival of Art is run entirely by Beaux Arts Miami, a volunteer support organization of the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami. The first festival, originally called the Clothesline Sale, was held in the spring of 1952 in order to give young artists a chance to meet the buying public. The festival became an annual project, and is now a juried show recognized as one of the leading art shows in the country. Proceeds from the Beaux Arts Festival of Art go to the Lowe Art Museum for the purposes of funding exhibitions, capital improvements, children's programming (including Art and School Camps and Hands on Community Outreach) as well as acquisitions for the museum's collection.
