Tin Marin de Dos Pingue

Anthony Ardavin Installation Shot

Tin Marin de Dos Pingue
By Anthony Ardavin
On view September 20 – November 2, 2014

Ardavin eludes the boundaries of ordinary life in his paintings. He has been incorporating 3-D elements to his paintings for several years. Ardavin has even traversed in the world of sculpture. In this exhibition, he combines it all to create paintings as free-standing sculptures. These surreal and colorful pieces are meant to engage the viewer in their fantastical narratives where cultures overlap, coexist and intermingle.

The work is intimate, delicate, and poignant. Ardavin has exhibited extensively throughout the US and Mexico. He is currently a resident artist at ArtCenter/South Florida in Studio #800-102.

During Art Basel in Miami Beach at ArtCenter, Mozuc installs a second branch of Banco ESA! equipped with original handcrafted currency that may have different valuations depending on the day, much like the stock market.

CLOSING RECEPTION Sunday, November 2 | 11:30am

Close to Home explores Moussawel’s observations of everyday moments, activities and cultural traditions in the home of her maternal grandparents. What began as an exercise in posterity became an exploration of assimilation, aging and family dynamics. Through photography and video, Moussawel further explores loss and memory in the food traditions of her Cuban and Lebanese heritage. The preparation of food has a visceral quality that not only satisfies human need, but also brings together people, conjures up memories, tells stories and speaks to the cyclical nature of life through its ritual process. Through this work, Moussawel continues to find ties to the fading vernacular of her family’s roots.

Her work has been exhibited internationally and is part of various private collections. Moussawel is currently a resident artist at ArtCenter/South Florida.

OPENING RECEPTION  Wednesday,  October 8, 7-10pm

ArtCenter continues with its series, On Location with Dimensions Variable (DV), an artist-run space based in downtown Miami and currently celebrating its five year anniversary. DV has organized an exhibition with Nellie Appleby, Allison Matherly and Cristina Lei Rodriguez at ArtCenter’s Richard Shack Gallery. These artists take their inspiration from natural forms and materials to develop works and narratives informed by the natural, the artificial and the manmade.

ArtCenter has also invited DV’s directors, Adler Guerrier, Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova and Frances Trombly as visiting artists, to develop site specific works during their residency at Project 924. Guerrier, Rodriguez-Casanova and Trombly explore notions of place. After Rodriguez-Casanova and Trombly recently developed a project for Prosjektrom Normanns in Stavanger, Norway, they all considered Miami Beach as a site of research and artistic output in the same way.
