May 16 – July 11, 2013

The Screening Room is a new media exhibition and project space located in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Video artist, filmmaker and Miami native Rhonda Mitrani recognized a need in the community for a multi-disciplinary space dedicated to host curated film and video programs, lectures and gatherings.
Carola Bravo is known for her immersive site-specific installations, urban interventions and intimate studio artworks that address space, changing territories and their geometry. Her video is a representation of a moment in a space that might sometimes coincide with reality itself. As Janet Batet, curator and critic of El Nuevo Herald describes: “The artist’s silhouette projected in real time, as she draws on a wall, creates an interesting contrast between reality and representation, presence and absence, expectations and disillusion.”
