NADER MUSEUM – FERNANDO BOTERO

The Nader Museum located in the Wynwood Arts District, Miami, proudly announces that ‘Botero Immersed’ in honor of Fernando Botero, will be extended through June 30, 2022. The exciting exhibit is a visual and engaging passage into the work of Botero with music composed by twenty-two times Grammy winner world producer Emilio Estefan. We’re inviting top media and influencers to visit this wonderful initiative from Monday to Saturday between 10:30AM and 5:00PM. Please let us know your availability so we can coordinate coverage.

Gary Nader, curator, and director of the museum, defines the exhibit as “a remarkable cultural event and multimedia experience, and features Botero’s iconic body of work from the 1960s to the present day through 360-degree interactive digital projections, lights, music and sounds.”

Guests will witness a selection of significant pieces representing his works over the last six decades, such as the circus personages, life in Latin America and its people, bullfighting, and adaptations of the work of art history masters. Botero’s narratives go beyond the represented object; a single image is full of connotations, and it may take spectators to a vast and unique universe of experiences. Botero’s “baroque” exaggeration of the portrayed objects reminds you that his signature style stands as an array of influences, from Renaissance masters to the 20th-century expressionist movements.

Fernando Botero was born in Medellin, Colombia (1932). In 1950, he graduated from Medellin University. He went on to study in Spain and Italy before eventually moving to New York in 1960, where he won the Guggenheim National Prize for Colombia. Over the next few years, Botero began to develop his trademark style. The small-town life he experienced as a child and the Colombian people of his youth would become his most rich source of inspiration. In 1973, Botero moved to Paris and began making sculptures. Botero has achieved international recognition for his painting, drawings, sculptures, and exhibitions around the world. His art is collected by many major international museums, corporations, and private collectors around the world.

Botero, with his immense sculptures, manipulates forms, proportions, volumes, and sizes to create smooth, round, and plump humans and animals that transform their surroundings and generate an immediate response from the viewer. He once said of his sculptures, “I never give particular traits to my figures. I don’t want them to have personality, but rather represent a type that I create. My sculptures do not carry any messages, social or otherwise. What matters for me is the form, the voluptuous surfaces, which emphasize the sensuality of my work. I like the enormous size; it is the fulfillment of my longing for voluptuous round forms.”

The Nader Museum, with over 1200 works of art from over 150+ important modern and contemporary masters, is compromised to elevate the importance of our culture by promoting excellence, a work performed by his founder Gary Nader for over 40 years.

Botero Immersed is also intended to promote the Nader Museum, a not-for-profit organization with 501(c)3 tax status. The museum is dedicated to showcasing a myriad of acclaimed art that fosters knowledge through a continuous process of appreciation and reinterpretation of modern and contemporary art from Latin American and its diaspora. Through a permanent collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, installations, and other media, the museum’s audience can experience and appreciate one of the world’s most significant regions of today’s contemporary art scene.

Tickets can be purchased here.

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.

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. 

Founded by Isabel Tassara in 2018, Coral Contemporary Gallery is a contemporary art gallery that represents emerging and established artists worldwide. The gallery works as a commercial space to buy art as well as a place to enjoy different art shows. All exhibits are planned, and most works are site-specific. The gallery works together with the artists to help them expand and show whatever they have on their minds. 

“By providing a space to immerse the public into various forms of art, the gallery serves as a place to contemplate, acquire and connect the art and the viewer, while expanding their boundaries,” says Tassara. “I consider it extremely important to love the art that we show and nurture an effective and trustful relationship with the artists that we work with,” she adds.

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. 

Coral Contemporary Art Gallery also has created the Coral Contemporary Store, which is an online platform to bring art closer to the public. The shopify store features artwork of over 30 emerging and established artists from all over the world.

TapStats is a “fan-certified” digital platform, and Bitcoin Latinum is a newly released cryptocurrency 3.0. The partnership of two leaders creates an exclusive event that features a never-before-seen combination of power brokers, combat sports, and crypto. This celebrity-filled event will be attended by the best-recognized MMA fighters and tomorrow’s superstars and will include a special musical performance by Quevo of Migos.

GENESIS tickets are NFTs themselves, and the inaugural event tickets will be issued as a tradable NFT that grants perennial access to the GENESIS annual event in the future. Only 200 GENESIS tickets will be minted, and future GENESIS attendees will need to hold or buy an existing Genesis Ticket NFT.

 Dr. Don Basile, Founder of Bitcoin Latinum & CEO of Monsoon Blockchain Corporation expressed, “We are very excited about the opportunity to allow end consumers to participate in the blockchain future of NFT and use crypto in this emerging exciting sports metaverse…”  about the partnership with TapStats!
