Weaving the Tension Between Nature and Urban Sprawl
January 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Aluna Art Foundation is organizing an interpretative guided tour of the exhibition Life at Street Level, which is part of the part of the first city-wide event THREADING THE CITY, a concurrence of Fiber Artist Miami Association (FAMA), and World Textile Art (WTA). The exhibition features local and international artists: Alissa Alfonso, Sharon Berebichez, Nancy Billings, RemiJin Camping, Maritza Caneca, Mabelin Castellanos, Alex De Yavorsky, Jocelyn Flores, Amy Gelb, Isabel Infante, Jeanne Jaffe, Marlene Kohn, Oriana Lacau, Adriana Lo Mascolo, Aurora Molina, Vero Murphy, Juliana Navarro Torres, Cynthia Passavanti, Felisa Prieto, Rosario Salazar, Debora Rosental, Denise Shapiro, Silvana Soriano, Laura Villarreal and Mirele Volkart.
The exhibition interweaves fiber with photography, photo collage, and installation works to capture an instant view of Miami at the street level. The title of the event, “Weaving the Tension Between Nature and Urban Sprawl” reflects the multiple ways in which the participant artists are representing the frictions between the increasingly urbanized environment and fragile ecosystems in continuous displacement.
This program is free to attend. HArtVest Project is located in a beautiful and historic space surrounded by tropical gardens: Cypress Hall in Pinecrest Gardens. There are many spaces for parking. Programming is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Aluna Art Foundation.
