Elisa Turner's Picks for September 2014
September’s art positively stuns. Don’t miss “Beatriz Milhazes: Jardim Botanico” at Pérez Art Museum Miami, promising landmark addition to our cultural scene: major US survey for Brazilian Beatriz Milhazes, with over 40 large-scale paintings, collages, and screenprints. Discover Cultural Legacy Gallery at MDC Museum of Art + Design, presenting “Cuba Out of Cuba: Through the Lens of Alexis Rodríguez-Duarte in Collaboration with Tico Torres,” with photos shot across the map, capturing Cuban figures from Celia Cruz to Nilo Cruz. At CCEMiami, art by Willy Castellanos, with Coco Fusco & Juan Si González, witnesses displacements of immigration, spurring collective memory. At Dina Mitrani Gallery, photographic portraits by Rafael Diaz simultaneously reveal and conceal.
