FLASHBACK: Miami 1980s is a multi-media art project/exhibition conceived by freelance photographer, Alexia Fodere in collaboration with The Miami Herald veteran photographers, Donna Natale Planas and Charles Trainor, Jr. Inspired by Fodere’s interest in the lifestyle and culture of Miami in the 1980’s, FLASHBACK is a strategically curated exhibition placing  archived still images inset into vintage television sets. Featuring over 15 works, the exhibition exemplifies a testament to the final era of film photography, prior to the dramatic shift in technology with the advent of digital processing, and a new way of seeing through the lens.

Invisible Presence is Yovani Bauta’s first solo exhibition at the MDC Museum of Art + Design. A Cuban-born American Painter, Bauta’s artwork has manifested in many forms including traditional painting, drawing and sculpture; as well as installation, performance and interactive art. Spanning a career of over 25 years, Invisible Presence is an exhibition of recent works, including a new interactive installation, Head in the Bathroom, which explores levels of privacy and false senses of security.

Several lectures and talks throughout the exhibitions and a complete schedule will be announced in early June. The exhibition will be on display through August 10th. Museum hours are Wednesday – Sunday, noon – 5 p.m. Admission is free and private tours are available.
