It’s that time of year again, when the art world and everyone associated with it descends upon Miami. Now, it might not be Art Basel, dahling, but there will be tons of events happening over the next few days — and since there are so many choices but so little time, Deco’s got a roundup that will make your choice on where to go a little easier.
Opa-locka is home to Ten North Group’s “Art of Transformation.”
Willie Logan: “We believe that art does transform lives as well as places — whether it’s visual art, performance, music or dance. The theme this year is ‘Africa Global,’ and the idea is that Africa is global. There’s not a place you can go in the world where you won’t find its culture, its people, its music and its food.”
The exhibits will be in a three-block area, but make sure you explore “Garden of Humanity” from James Brazil.
James Brazil: “The ‘Garden of Humanity’ really kind of was born out of, where does knowledge come from? The wood itself is almost 130, 140 years old. You’re actually going to be experiencing the sculpture by walking in the water, because it’s a very thin layer, and then you really are part of the presentation.”
Willie Logan: “It’s going to be an exciting week for people to come together, for people to discover new places, as well as to see beautiful, engaging art.”
