Visit lost spaces at Vizcaya
The event is Tuesday, November 29 from 7 to 10 pm. Tickets are $10 for General Admission, FREE for Vizcaya Members and can be purchased online as well as at the door.
This second installation of Lost Spaces features local artists creating works in four areas related to Vizcaya's gardens and leisure spaces: the Casba, South Property, the Casino, and Basement Recreational Rooms. Like Phase I, these projects highlight elements of Vizcaya that no longer exist or are inaccessible to the public.
The Casba is a small, exotic pavilion that was originally part of Vizcaya's southern gardens and is now on the grounds of the Archdiocese of Miami. Leyden Rodriguez Casanova's piece will create an architectural reference to the Casba that appears as either unfinished or deconstructed, depending on the viewer's perspective.
Mira Lehr and Yara Travieso's installation will personify Vizcaya as Queen Dido, the first queen of Carthage according to ancient Greek and Roman writers. Their work will be activated through performances, and evoke the exotic wildlife that once existed on the South Property. Kerry Phillips will create an installation for the winding white marble staircase in the Shop and Café area that once served as quick access for Deering and his guests from the East Loggia to the recreational rooms. The project will consist of found furniture installed with a sense of movement suggesting that the pieces are rushing down the stairs.
Brookhart Jonquil is developing a piece for the two rooms in the Casino on the Garden Mound. This piece will focus on the original fixtures in the rooms, while using architecture and light as a bridge between the physical and immaterial. His work will also speculatively reference the daily activities that might have taken place in those spaces.
Tickets are $10 each and may be purchased here.
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is at 3251 S Miami Avenue.
