Lost Spaces and Stories opening party is May 5
The exhibition commemorates Vizcaya’s centennial by exploring its history, original design intent, and daily life at the estate in its early years. Over the past century, nature, man and time have transformed Vizcaya, and many of its spaces and stories have been lost or forgotten. Following a competitive selection process, eleven local artists were commissioned to create works that claim and inhabit these spaces and stories.
Phase II of Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya opens on November 17, 2016 and features installations by Brookhart Jonquil, Mira Lehr and Yara Travieso, Kerry Phillips and Leyden Rodriguez Casanova.
Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya marks the tenth anniversary of the Contemporary Arts Program (CAP), a Vizcaya-based commission program that invites artists to develop work inspired by the estate for onsite exhibitions. CAP draws on the spirit of creative dialogue that characterized Vizcaya’s founding, continuing Vizcaya owner James Deering’s patronage of the arts by engaging contemporary artists to create site-specific works that explore the estate in new and intriguing ways. From painters John Singer Sargent and Gari Melchers, both houseguests, to sculptor A. Stirling Calder, responsible for the figures on the Barge, Vizcaya consistently has been a source of inspiration to artists.
The opening event on May 5 is from 7:30 to 9:30 pm.
Tickets are $7 for members; $15 for non-members, purchase here.
Vizcaya Museum & Gardens is located at3251 S Miami Avenue.
