ARTIST TALK  Wednesday, May 20 | 7pm

For this Art@CMS exhibition, works were selected from artist/scientist collaborations as well as video artists who were invited to create pieces inspired by the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment. The CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics that sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. CERN is one of the world’s largest and most respected centers for scientific research. It operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world where physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter—the fundamental particles—that provide insights into the fundamental laws of nature. CMS is designed to measure the properties of previously discovered particles with unprecedented precision, and be on the lookout for completely new, unpredicted phenomena.

Interstate is a project by Madrid-based artists Esther Mañas and Arash Moori. Mañas was a visiting artist at ArtCenter in April-May 2014 through the additional support of Acción Cultural Española. Mañas’ interest in urban space led her to explore Miami’s highways, their history and how they have and continue to transform neighborhoods by creating hierarchies—symbolically and structurally.

Their collaborative work can be placed within the field of experiential installation where they often use sound as a sculptural medium to transform and interact with the perceptions of the visual and architectural. Both artists were invited to present Interstate, a photographic dérive published in the form of a book documenting Mañas’ exploration. Moori, a multidisciplinary artist who works with sound, completed a residency at the Audiotheque operated by He developed the sound component to their site-specific installation at the Richard Shack Gallery, Listening Gallery and the Lincoln-Meridian windows of ArtCenter’s iconic 800-810 building.

Resident artist Karelle Levy and participating resident artists will take over the ArtCenter with art installations inspired by KRELwear’s latest Spring Petals Collection 2015. Starting at 8pm, KREL models will be discovered in vignettes in various themed-inspired studios throughout the 800-810 building.

KRELwear, designed by Karelle Levy was launched in 2002 at the GenArt Fresh Faces of Fashion Show.  She continues to blur the lines of fashion and art through her signature knit dresses, hotshorts and rompers. Best known for her unique fabrics, Levy continues to draw inspiration from her community using cottons, lightweight materials and bright colors. All hand loomed one-of-a-kind knitwear made just for Miami’s hot and sultry climate, she combines colors of floral petals to create a pastel mood with pops of brightness and shades. Her hand made fabrics are a work of art, using the body as the canvas, accentuating the female curves.

Come to KRELwear Takeover: Petals Collections and enjoy the work of Levy as well as other resident artists as they continue to offer special prices in their studios as part of the ongoing moving sale through the end of this month.

Gender and Patterns: an unanswered question | Veronica Fazzio

ON VIEW through April 30, 2015
OPENING & PERFORMANCE April 4, 2015 | 7-10pm

ArtCenter/South Florida | 810 Lincoln Road #203, Miami Beach

In this installation work, Fazzio explores the traditional role of the female set by societal norms dictated by religious attitudes. She uses icons from the faith she is most familiar with as representative of all religions. Fazzio presents popular religious images of female saints and virgins juxtaposed with images of war as a metaphor for the different behavioral patterns set by cultural mandates unconsciously followed by each gender. During the April Studio Crawl, Fazzio’s performance will incorporate movement inspired by Japanese butoh reflecting this lack of consciousness.
