Real estate speculation, virtual environments, and developments in technology and fabrication now require a reconsideration of what ‘dwelling’ is. How does the scale of a home adjust in relation to these new, “fluid” elements and forces? Residential Properties explores recent shifts in living spaces through site-specific interventions within an existing house/artist residency in a Miami neighborhood, The Fountainhead Residency. Contributors to this exhibition come from a range of disciplinary backgrounds including visual artists, industrial designers, architects, filmmakers, web designers, and writers.
Time and Materials is a formula that helps one determine the value of one’s labor: it is the cost of the materials and equipment required, plus a rate multiplied by the time it takes to complete the job. While the Time and Materials equation is a way to arrive a specific quantitative value, this project presents artists whose work puts the variables of this equation into play. The exhibition examines the work of six South Florida artists who mix a language of drawing with labor-intensive processes that deconstruct, conflate, and transform ideas about both labor and drawing, and who propose new models through which we may consider the value of one’s labor.
The show will feature the following artists: Nathalie Alfonso, AA.CM.FG, Ernesto Oroza, Frances Trombly, Odalis Valdivieso, and Agustina Woodgate.

Herbert Matthews published the first report on the Cuban Revolution, written during guerrilla warfare in the Sierra Maestra, that reached an international readership in The New York Times in February 1975. It was an article that turned him into a pioneer, as it was the first to voice the West’s fascination with the revolutionary venture and it also launched the revolution’s young leader. Such was the impact of the piece that Anthony Depalma went so far as to describe Matthews as the “man who invented Fidel”. More info here. En castellano aquí

Affective Architectures at Aluna Art Foundation

Amidst the flood of banal images, what artworks created through an inter-subjective dialogue with the architecture or the spaces inhabited by the artists, have the power to move us and remain in our memory?
This question was the point of departure in Affective Architectures, as a mirror reflecting our biographies within the failure of the grand narratives in Latin American and Caribbean cities, but also as a window into alternative passages.

Laboratories for Design, Craft, and Art in Latin America
New Territories explores the collaborations between small manufacturing operations and craftspersons, artists, and designers, and demonstrates how the resulting work addresses not only the issues of commodification and production, but also of urbanization, displacement, and sustainability. The exhibition will explore a number of key themes, including: the dialogue between contemporary trends and artistic legacies in Latin American art; the use of recycled and repurposed materials and objects; the blending of digital and traditional skills; and the reclamation of personal and public space.
New Territories is organized by MAD’s Acting Chief Curator Lowery Stokes Sims and Adriana Kertzer, Curatorial Assistant and Project Manager. It follows MAD’s groundbreaking 2010 exhibition The Global Africa Project, which presented new craft, design, and art that transcended nationality and regionalism in its presentation of the new nomadic paradigm of African identity. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated, full color catalogue that will be published in separate English and Spanish editions by Turner Libros of Madrid and Mexico City.
Major support for New Territories: Laboratories for Art, Craft and Design in Latin America is provided by the Ford Foundation and the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation. Additional support is provided by Furthermore: a program of the J. M. Kaplan Fund, The Venezuelan American Endowment for the Arts and The Louise D. and Morton J. Macks Family Foundation.
