Her Hunt for Pink October
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as such this month’s exhibition picks are not only “pink” inspired but also dedicated to two admirable women artists. Taking motivation from an archival rendering of the “Pink House” by Miami-based architectural firm Arquitectonica, the exhibition layout of “An Image” converges time, the imaginary and the real. Curated by Domingo Castillo and Natalia Zuluaga and on view at the ArtCenter/South Florida, the artists in “An Image” explore the architectural fictions and actualities of Miami real estate. Partnering with Peter Fetterman Gallery in Santa Monica, Dina Mitrani Gallery features work by inspiring fashion photographer Lillian Bassman (1917-2012). An angular, high-contrast and elegant aesthetic defines her photographs, many of which were published in Harper’s Bazaar between 1950-1965. This exhibition shows a selection of her most celebrated images picturing fashionable women. Also centralizing the female form, “Lidzie’s Looking Glass” by Cuban artist Lidzie Alvisa is on view at Diana Lowenstein Gallery. Curated by Marilyn Sampera, the exhibition features photography and installations that activate the body along with symbols of birth, life and death, as a tool to question notions of truth. October is also tickled pink that PRIMARY re-opens its doors with a group exhibition “OMGWTF,” featuring many Miami-based artists, and more, with whom this progressive gallery works.
