Spectrum Miami announces interactive programming
|“Estigmas” by Darian Rodriguez Mederos|
Spectrum Miami, a juried contemporary art show taking place Dec. 2-6 in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District, announced its lineup of specially curated programs, including Art Labs, ArtSpot International, LaunchPad Program, and Spotlight Program. The abundance of trend-setting artists and galleries exhibiting at Spectrum Miami will reflect this year’s theme, [EMERGENCE]—Innovative Vision Coming to Life. Spectrum Miami is known for showcasing one-of-a-kind art in a gallery-style exhibition space, along with live performances, curated projects, and late-night parties.
These programs provide a dynamic experience for attendees, allowing them to view and interact with works produced by leading international artists, experience the work of those artists outside of museum walls, and enjoy exhibitions that showcase the thriving art landscape of Miami.
Art Labs feature specially curated projects by several prominent Miami-based art institutions, alternative spaces, and universities within the show. Major Art Labs this year include:
Watch art come alive during Artplay, as local non-profit Life Is Art’s specially selected group of artists create their next masterpiece right in front of the crowds at Spectrum Miami. Inspired by Spectrum Miami's [EMERGENCE] theme, the artists will offer a glimpse into how each piece of art uniquely emerges, giving light to the artist's creativity and medium.
LIGHT THE NIGHT
Spectrum Miami presents the work of three artists at the forefront of video, light mapping, and interactive installation. Their work will illuminate the façade and Sculpture Garden of Spectrum Miami, celebrating the ways we are shaped by art that intervenes with our built and natural environment. The front entrance façade of Spectrum Miami will be illuminated by a video installation created by Tiffany Carbonneau and Brian Harper. Their work explores the impact of our surroundings by presenting familiar structures in an unfamiliar setting, allowing the viewer to experience subtle architectural influences in a significant way. Beginning on Thursday evening, Philip Noyed's "Rainbow Pyramid Light Experience" joins Light the Night. Located in Spectrum Miami's Sculpture Garden, Philip's installation is an orchestration of a series of distinct colors changing in time. The viewer experiences visually both outside and "in" different colors, experiencing the effect of each color frequency.
Spectrum Miami will once again host ArtSpot International—a show within a show—curated by director Aldo Castillo, one of the most respected authorities on modern and contemporary art. ArtSpot will present carefully selected modern, contemporary, and cutting-edge galleries with a strong Latin-American slant that specialize in painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, and ceramics.
Every year, Spectrum Miami’s Spotlight Artist Program provides collectors a focused look at several cutting-edge artists who will each be creating a site-specific solo exhibition. This year, the artists selected are James Paterson, Humberto Benitez, Nicole Furman, Jeanne Bessette, and Max Zorn.
Each year, an emerging, unrepresented artist is selected to create a site-specific exhibition at the show. This year, the search for the LaunchPad artist is a collaboration between Life is Art and Spectrum Miami. The artist will be announced in the beginning of November 2015.
Tickets for Spectrum Miami are priced at $20 for general admission. For opening preview attendance, tickets are priced at $50. A percentage of all ticket sales benefit Life Is Art, a local Miami-based charity. For more information on Spectrum Miami, please visit www.spectrum-miami.com.
