Greetings from Miami | DosJotas
Presented in partnership with Acción Cultural Española
810 Lincoln Road Lobby, Miami Beach, Fl 33139
DosJotas is ArtCenter’s third visiting artist from Spain through its partnership with Accion Cultural Espanola. DosJotas’ project encompasses the city as with his interventions and actions. During his residency in Miami, his work takes a turn where he takes on the guise of anthropologist, meeting and interviewing Miamians from all walks of life—immigrants that range from Cubans to Haitians to New Yorkers. The project will culminate in a set of “tourist” postcards that represent the “real” Miami.
Madrid, 1982 | Lives and works in Madrid
DosJotas graduated in Fine Arts from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Masters in Contemporary Art from U.E.M. DosJotas’ work functions as social criticism. He works primarily through actions and interventions within urban spaces, not necessarily public. Through his work, he appropriates and reinterprets existing elements in the urban landscape, using the city as a stage for action and artistic intervention. He explores the disappearance of public spaces through gentrification found in all large cities and forms of control in mass societies and civic passivity. His interventions have and can be found in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Madrid, Miami, New York, Paris, San Francisco, among other cities.
