NOULA

In honor of Haitian Heritage Month, the Miami Design District‘s latest art exhibition takes place at the Buick Building. NOULA is an exhibition that challenges the idea of Haitian experience and existence. This exhibition brings together contemporary Haitian artists from different parts of the world, who disrupt and confront the negative notion about Haitian culture, societal standards and the perceptions of self-identity in relation to imposed narratives.

About NOULA

NOULA addresses historical and contemporary systemic issues, while using the homeland of Haiti as an example and beacon. This exhibition illuminates the great contributions Haiti has offered throughout history. These artists, in their cultural context, are addressing stereotypes, biases affecting self-perception and the misconception of their own country.

These Haitian artists encourage us to celebrate an emerging cultural exhibition, transforming the Buick Building into an immersive gallery. All from different parts of the world, these artists showcase original art, sculptures, drawings and mixed-media in hopes of sparking new expectations in the world of Haitian art. The exhibition notably features conceptual art from Michaelle Sergile, film projection from Steven Baboun and sculptures from Nico Vorbe. In the spirit of Diasporic engagement, NOULA bridges the gap between classic works from old masters and contemporary masters to the most recent work by contemporary artists. This thematic exhibition displays Haitian Heritage through the lens of today’s most prominent and contemporary Haitian artists.

ROBOT DIGIT LEARNS PAINTING via 360 magazine

ROBOT DIGIT LEARNS PAINTING

Robots have been given the gift of human creativity. 

Artist Agnieszka Pilat is currently out West at the headquarters of Agility Robotics, where she has made a new friend with the humanoid robot DIGIT, and started a series of paintings with him that will be included in her upcoming show, ROBOTa. 

“This is the era of the new, intelligent machine,” says Agnieszka. “The works created by DIGIT are full of mistakes. This innocence in mark-making gives them a sense of spontaneity, like children playing with crayons.”  

Watch DIGIT paint here

Agnieszka is no stranger to painting with robots. She has worked closely with Boston Dynamics‘ SPOTselling one piece created by the robot canine for $40,000 during a fundraiser to benefit Ukrainian refugees. The pieces with DIGIT and SPOT will be featured in Agnieszka‘s upcoming fall show at the gallery Modernism in San Francisco. 

Agnieszka’s Talking Points: 

  • This is the era of the new, intelligent machine. This is not a printer – an enhancement of a human hand, or a camera lens – an amplified human eye. The new machine is close to man’s nature – interested in the sublime, the essence of what it means to be human. It’s slow and curious and playful. Unlike clean, perfect classical machine esthetics, new machine esthetics are fraud with errors and imperfections.
  • If a human is the ideal – then robots strive to imitate their human creators. We are the parents to the machine – and intelligent machines like proper children believe in their naivete, that they can someday surpass their creators.
  • The new machine is close to man’s nature – interested in the sublime, the essence of what it means to be human. It’s slow and curious and playful. Unlike clean, perfect classical machine esthetics, new machine esthetics are fraud with errors and imperfections.

Agnieszka Pilat Bio: 

Polish born artist, Agnieszka Pilat studied painting and illustration at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. She is an award-winning artist and her works can be found in public and private collections in the United States, Poland, and Canada. Pilat currently lives and maintains a full time studio in San Francisco and is represented by numerous galleries throughout the United States and has exhibited at the Carnegie Museum of Art.

Persepolis Reimagined

Getty has launched Persepolis Reimagined, an immersive web experience that lets visitors explore the ceremonial capital of the ancient Persian Empire at its height. Visitors can walk in the footsteps of ancient dignitaries through the most accurate recreation of Persepolis to date, and learn about the art, architecture, and customs of this iconic monument to imperial power.

The experience is available across desktop and mobile and will soon be viewable in multiple languages, including Arabic, Farsi, French, Hindi, Spanish, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, and English.

Founded by Darius I around 518 BC, Persepolis was an embodiment of the Achaemenid imperial ideology, which is reflected in its art and architecture. It served as the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Persian kings and thrived for nearly 200 years. Though Alexander the Great looted and set fire to Persepolis in 330 BC, its ruins survive and are a source of national pride for modern-day Iranians as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Visitors begin their tour at the Gate of All Nations, the main entrance into Persepolis. After traversing a massive flight of 111 steps, they reach a gateway flanked by two massive and brightly painted bull statues that served as symbolic guardians of the city.

After the grand entrance, visitors encounter the Apadana (a great reception hall), the Palace of Xerxes (a place for ceremonies and rituals), the Southeastern Palace (royal residences), and the Royal Treasury, ending their journey with the impressive Hall of 100 Columns.

Along the way, visitors can also click to learn more about the many art objects and rituals that characterized the city, including modes of proper tribute and gift-giving, royal banquets, and Persian court dress. Additional present-day views of surviving architecture and artworks can also be viewed on the website.

The experience highlights that Achaemenid royal art incorporated craftsmanship and traditions from their vast and diverse empire, including Iranian architecture, Assyrian and Babylonian palace decorations, Egyptian design motifs, Greek and Indian craftsmanship and more.

Persepolis Reimagined is the result of a collaboration between historians, creatives, and technologists, including Getty’s own experts in the Museum and Digital departments, academic consultants from the University of California, Los Angeles and creative and technical production from MediaMonks. The immersive website is a part of the Getty Villa Museum exhibition, Persia: Ancient Iran and the Classical World, on view through August 8 at the Getty Villa in Los Angeles. The web experience presents select objects from the exhibition in the context of life at Persepolis, bridging surviving physical artifacts with this standalone digital recreation.

Primamore

Coral Contemporary Gallery will present an exhibition of Argentinian artist Maria Chiara Baccanelli on May 19, 2022. Titled “Primamore,” this exhibition reflects the striking spontaneity of Baccanelli’s work, characterized by powerful colors that decant into floral forests. The aroma of these bouquets comes off as in a sunny spring afternoon in the countryside and surpasses her creations, enthralling the viewer. This enchantment is also due to the strength that emerges from her canvases, thanks to a varied palette of bright, pleasant and energetic colors. To further enrich this experience, she adds ceramic sculptures of organic forms of exquisite elegance, recreating, in its entirety, a fantasy refuge where the power, appearance and light of color irrefutably prevail.

Located at 30 NW 34th Street in Midtown Miami, the gallery program not only includes exhibitions but also Artist Talks, discussion panels and gallery lectures, all free and open to the public.

About Memphis Milano

The first collection of 55 products of the Memphis-Milano brand, under the guidance of Ettore Sottsass and the artistic direction of Barbara Radice, was presented in Milan on September 19, 1981 at the Arc ’74 showroom of Brunella and Mario Godani at number 2 Corso Europa. This was the period of the Salone del Mobile, and more than 2,000 people crowded outside the gallery, blocking the city traffic, for what immediately felt like an epoch-making event. The new language mixed elegance and kitsch, dialoguing with absurd and irrational shapes, using plastic laminates with patterns that simulate precious materials, but most of all it introduced the pleasure of play into the rational language of industrial production: Memphis-Milano quickly conquered public press and attention from all over the world.

New Miami Exhibits

In the Miami Design District, a new pop-up exhibition debuted: Metonym, by Nadir Souirgi, which displays paintings that challenge human positionality in relation to other animals. Additionally, an eclectic group of Ukrainian artists are featured in the pop-up exhibition: The Memory on Her Face Pt. 2 which addresses issues of national identity from creators Nikita Kadan, Lesia Khomenko, Nikolay Karabinovych, Maria Sulymenko, Vlada Ralko and Oleksiy Sai

Nadir Sourigi: Metonym | April 4 – May 27, Palm Court

This pop-up exhibition of new paintings by Nadir Souirgi challenges human positionality in relation to other animal realms through disorientation, interweaving, and framing. Souirgi’s work ranges from moments of ludic evolutionary force in Pink Light, where the background creates a levity to a scene that could otherwise be interpreted as simply agonizing, to moments of upturned abstraction which upon further examination reveal a code of phantom spaces and faces as in Carnival. The exhibit is presented by Bas Fisher Invitational as part of “Waterproof Miami,” a series of environmentally-informed projects done in collaboration with Bridge Initiative.

Ukrainian Artists: The Memory on Her Face Pt. 2 | April 2 – 25, Laverne Building

Presented by Voloshyn Gallery, The Memory on Her Face. Part 2 is a collective exhibition of Ukrainian artists. Addressing issues of national identity, destruction and renaissance, the exhibition highlights the artists’ take on historical events and processes, interactions between the past and the present, and ideas for the future. The first iteration of this exhibition, The Memory on Her Face, was presented in Miami between February 5–March 28, 2022. After the Russian Federation invaded Ukraine on February 24, the exhibition project gained new relevance. Documenting the events that unfolded in Ukraine over the last 8 years, the works in the show trace the physical

destruction and collective anguish caused by unfathomable events that demand global attention.

Amani Lewis | Baltimore’s Finest: Mr. Girlyoucrazy and Dev

Amani Lewis, known exclusively for canvas work, unveiled their first-ever mural in The Miami Design District‘s  Jade Alley. Being a Black and nonbinary artist, Amani Lewis creates works of art with the mission to move and inform. They pull from their personal adversity and social and creative circles to make stunning portraits that point out prevailing narratives and societal misconceptions. 

In the mural, Amani constructed a double portrait highlighting a creative couple from their hometown of Baltimore. Spanning a massive 40ft x 12ft, the mural depicts musician Mr. GirlYouCrazy and fashion stylist Devrene in tender embrace. 

Fainzilber | Melin Windows

This window installation comprises three photographic series: Somewear, 2014; Wild Flowers, 2016; and The Cookbook, 2019) by New York-based Argentinian photographer Lucía Fainzilber. Arranged in the Melin Building windows, these highly stylized visual compositions trigger an enhanced sensorial perception through a deliberate manipulation of the artist’s preferred subjects: fabrics, food, and color. As an immigrant female artist working in New York City, the experiences of cultural and gender difference inform Fainzilber’s approach to photography, and distinguish her idiosyncratic body of work.

Guggenheim Museum Collection

Guggenheim Museum Bilbao’s Motion, Autos, Art, Architecture, covers over a century’s worth of automotive creation, exploring its multiple connections with the visual arts and architecture. The impressive selection of vehicles, works of art and architectural documents that it comprises, covers the main technological achievements in the sector and melds them with their enormous social and cultural implications.

Practically since the invention of the automobile, both its fabulous appearance and its association with speed, a sense of adventure, autonomy, modernity and progress seduced artists and architects to the point of quickly becoming a constant in their creations. Likewise, ideas and forms originating in the artistic avant‐garde impregnated automobile design, giving rise to the important collaborations of figures from art and architecture that we all know today. In addition to proposing a complete review of the nearly two hundred years of creation, the exhibition addresses the unstoppable trend towards electrification that the automobile shares with so many other productive sectors and even ventures to sketch out future scenarios for this industry. Scenarios that, according to the experts, share three major axes: the use of new digital technologies, innovation in design, and maximization of care for the environment through renewable energies and the circular economy. 

The car was born mainly to solve the problems of pollution and traffic jams caused by horse‐drawn carriages in the emerging big cities. At the time, internal combustion vehicles were considered the more sustainable option. Nearly two centuries later, we find ourselves at a similar crossroads, which, thanks to technological progress, leads us to the adoption of the electric vehicle as the most efficient and environmentally responsible solution. In reality, electricity has always been present in the history of automotive invention.

Right from the beginning, propulsion by means of an electric motor competed with prototypes based on steam and gasoline, and, in the 1830s, Robert Anderson developed the first fully electric car, which Sibrandus Stratingh designed and manufactured on a small scale.

This major exhibition of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, curated by Norman Foster, affords us a splendid opportunity to contemplate the past and present of this sector. It also acts to imagine a future in which the automobile goes even further in contributing to social progress and sustainable development—both of which are hallmarks of Iberdrola—while it continues to be the best example of the industry’s capacity to combine aesthetics, function and technology. 

Individual mobility is a major driver of our freedom. The most emotional and most-used mode of transportation is the car. And the car is here to stay. By 2030, the world of mobility will have undergone the greatest transformation since the transition from horse-drawn carriages to automobiles at the beginning of the twentieth century. The journey of individual mobility is exciting and greatly reflected in automobiles, art and architecture; and is being turned into an extraordinary experience in one of the most remarkable museums in the world. The exhibition brings together around forty automobiles—each the best of its kind in such terms as beauty, rarity, technical progress and a vision of the future. 

These are placed center stage in the galleries and surrounded by significant works of art and architecture. Many of these have never before left their homes in private collections and public institutions, and as such are being presented to a wide audience for the first time. The exhibition is spread over ten spaces in the museum. Seven galleries are themed in roughly chronological order. They start with Beginnings and continue as: Sculptures, Popularising, Sporting, Visionaries and Americana, closing with a gallery dedicated to what the future of mobility may hold. The remaining four spaces comprise a corridor containing a timeline and immersive sound experience, a live clay-modeling studio and an area devoted to models. Unlike any other single invention, the automobile has completely transformed the urban and rural landscape of our planet and in turn our lifestyle. We are on the edge of a new revolution of electric power, so this exhibition acts as a requiem for the last days of combustion.

Zeitz MOCAA × Gucci Gala

Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) and longstanding partner Gucci are pleased to announce the museum’s first annual fundraiser event to be held on Saturday, November 29, 2022. Inspiration comes from When We See Us, the new exhibition opening on November 20. The gala, themed “Art & Opulence,” will see notable figures from the art, fashion, film and entertainment industries join Zeitz MOCAA to celebrate contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora.  

Gucci has long been a supporter of the arts and this partnership speaks to the House’s commitment to promoting culture and preserving heritage. The Zeitz MOCAA x Gucci Gala marks a return for the museum’s continuous fundraising efforts and is set to become an annual highlight on the social calendar of the African continent.  

“The Zeitz MOCAA Gala and its theme is a celebration of excellence, triumph and affirmation of the global Black experience, and is true to our relationship with the larger art and culture field,” says Koyo Kouoh, Executive Director and Chief Curator, Zeitz MOCAA. “We are thankful for our long-standing partnership with Gucci. At a time when many institutions across the globe are continuing to feel the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, this event provides Zeitz MOCAA with an opportunity to further its goals and continue to strive towards access for all and the education and celebration of art from Africa and its diaspora.”

A Celebration of Black Excellence

The When We See Us exhibition is a large-scale, global exploration of Black self-representation through figurative painting and portraiture spanning more than a century. In the lead-up to the exhibition opening, the museum will host various programs that speak about the global Black experience, including a series of webinars that began on March 29. These programs, as well as the gala theme, will address the exhibition’s key themes of perpetuation, essence and radicality of Black joy, celebrating the continent of Africa, Africans and African-ess in all its forms across the global African diaspora. Gucci’s partnership allows for the exhibition to travel to major museums across the United States and Europe. 

In addition to supporting When We See Us as a traveling exhibition, the funds raised from the Zeitz MOCAA Gala will go towards the institution’s mandate of a civic space that furthers the contemplation of and education about art from Africa and its diaspora as a crucial and unique catalyst for the analysis of our societies. 

“In its role as a site for public dialogue, exhibitions, research and collection, and storytelling that contemporary art enables, the institution promotes narratives that are important to the building of communities, and we see this gala as a significant milestone in working towards this vision,” concludes Kouoh.

“Zeitz MOCAA looks forward to welcoming its board of trustees, Global Council members as well as special guests to a night of Art & Opulence.”

mahJ Proust Exhibit

The Museum of Art and History of Judaism (known as “The mahJ”), located in the exquisite 17th-century Hôtel de Saint-Aignan in the historic Marais neighborhood of Paris, has announced its upcoming exhibitions for 2022, including showcasing Marcel Proust through a new light, as well as spotlighting the work of photographer Jacques Perez.

From April 14 to August 28, 2022, the mahJ will present a new exhibition titled: Marcel Proust. On his Mother’s Side. Marking the centenary of Proust’s death, the exhibition explores the personality and work of Marcel Proust (1871-1922) who, after her death in 1905, had a desire to “do something that would have pleased mother.” Featuring 230 paintings, drawings, prints and documents, the exhibition includes major works by Monet (one of his favorite painters), Rodin, Bonnard and Vuillard, as well as a proof of Swann’s Way. The exhibition is the first in France to focus on Proust through the lens of his relationship with Judaism. The exhibition illustrates the author’s social life and opinions, while also exploring the similarities between the structure of Proustian manuscripts and that of the Talmud, as well as focusing on the Jewish characters in In Search of Lost Time.

From June 2 to December 31, 2022, visitors will be able to view works by photographer Jacques Perez in the exhibition Pilgrimage to Djerba. Photographs by Jacques Perez, 1980. The island of Djerba in southern Tunisia is home to one of the oldest and most famous synagogues in the world, the Ghriba. The community around this synagogue, which dates back to the Middle Ages, was documented by Jacques Perez in 1979-1980 in a series of colorful photographs that illustrate their ancestral traditions. Perez, now 90 years old, was born in Tunis in 1932, the son of a Tunisian Jewish father and a German mother; throughout his storied career in photography, he focused exclusively on Tunisia and its inhabitants.

The mahJ also continues to host tours of the Marais neighborhood to help visitors discover the Jewish history, food and culture that surrounds the museum. The experience starts with a tour of the permanent collection followed by a walk around the neighborhood, led by an English-speaking guide. Upcoming tours will be held on June 19, August 7 and August 22, 2022.

Beyond King Tut

Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience, a new exhibition developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society, commemorates the 100th anniversary of one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Beyond King Tut will mark its world premiere with the start of its North American tour in spring 2022.

The world premiere showings include a special installation at the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C. (June 2022-February 2023) and SoWa Power Station in Boston (July 8-September 18).

Beyond King Tut will take visitors on a time-traveling journey flooded with sight, sound and intrigue through the world of King Tut—the boy who reigned as Pharaoh of Egypt more than 3,000 years ago—and the discovery of his tomb and treasures in 1922. The discovery of the intact tomb of King Tut captured the imagination of the world, and the mysteries surrounding the tomb still resonate to this day. Drawing from the storied archives of the National Geographic Society, the exhibition combines the power of cinematic storytelling and soaring imagery made possible with state-of-the-art projection mapping to invite visitors into the golden king’s world like never before.

Beyond King Tut will be a must-see for anyone interested in Egypt and the history of King Tut,” said Kathryn Keane, vice president of public programming for the National Geographic Society. “New technologies are making it possible to fully immerse people like never before in important stories from our past, allowing us to develop connections and understand history’s influence on our present and future generations.”

Beyond King Tut is produced by Paquin Entertainment Group and Immersive Experiences. Paquin Entertainment Group’s exhibition portfolio includes the acclaimed Beyond Van Gogh and Beyond Monet exhibitions that have attracted more than 3 million visitors around the world.

The North American debut of the award-winning virtual reality experience “Tutankhamun: Enter the Tomb” will be presented alongside Beyond King Tut in select venues, including SoWa Power Station, as an optional add-on experience. Created by immersive cinematic storytelling company CityLights and voiced by lauded English actor Hugh Bonneville, the groundbreaking experience whisks guests through a photorealistic version of King Tut’s tomb and all its treasures, just as archeologist Howard Carter and his financier Lord Carnarvon found it when they first peered inside in 1922.

In addition to the premiere of Beyond King Tut, National Geographic is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in November 2022 with content including a documentary and a National Geographic magazine feature.
