Carlos Cruz Diez: The Embodied Experience of Color
Curated by MAM Adjunct Curator Rina CarvajalThis exhibition marks the artist's first exhibition to focus solely on sensory chromatic environments and interactive projects. It presents four, interactive environments that challenge visitors’ perceptions as they experience shifting chromatic space and color in movement.

Internationally known as a leading practitioner of kinetic art in the 1950s, Carlos Cruz-Diez began experimenting with color, perception and sensation during the 1960s and 1970s. His pioneering work from those decades proposed a dematerialization of the art object in favor of immersive environments incorporating the viewer's body, senses and subjectivity, and changing the audience from passive spectators into active participants.

Pearl and Stanley Goodman Latin American Collection, and Recent Acquisitions from the Museum’s Latin American Collection
This major exhibition mirrors the diverse Hispanic landscape of South Florida with influential artists from Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Guatemala, Uruguay, Venezuela, Argentina, El Salvador and Brazil represented among the works on view.Acclaimed Fort Lauderdale art collectors Pearl and Stanley Goodman began their collection of Latin American modernists in the 1980s. They were attracted to Latin American art because it tells “a story, usually with clear political and social messages.” Together, they have built an impressive collection that includes masters such as Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Joaquín Torres García, José Clemente Orozco and Wifredo Lam.

Complementing the Goodman collection are works by Latin American contemporary artists from the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale’s collection. Curator and Head of Collection Research Jorge Santis mounted this exhibition of works by artists from Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. Featured artists include Puerto Rican photographer and Miami Beach resident Carlos Betancourt, Cuban-born artist Ernesto Oroza, Mexican photographer Dulce Pinzón,Salvadorian painter Benjamín Cañas and Argentine painterGuillermo Kuitca

A visual journey through the design of record covers in Latin America.This show, created and coordinated by Zona de Obras, the company responsible for many of the album covers by masterAndrés Calamaro, as well as a long list of Latin American recording artists, is a tribute to the record itself and to the condition of being listened to, observed and felt. The show proposes a visual journey throughout Latin American graphic design exploring the covers of 519 historic contemporary rock albums. It’s a visual adventure far away from charts and ranks. Music to contemplate, full of colors and suggestive surprises that prove that graphic design is in great health in that region.

Visual music composed by many generations of designers, photographers and illustrators that are key players on the“Rock in Spanish” concert. May 22 to June 12 at the Awarehouse, 550 NW 29th Street, Miami, FL 33127.

Manuel Carbonell. Modern Master Sculptor
An important collection of maquettes, sculptures, bas-reliefs and monumental sculptures by Cuban Master SculptorManuel Carbonell. His commissioned work as the creator of two of Miami’s most important landmarks, “The Tequesta Family” at the Brickell Avenue Bridge and “El Centinela del Rio” at the entrance of the Miami River in Brickell Key, denotes his more classical and figurative style. The works exhibited at the Gallery are modern, where Carbonell searches for the essence of the form and the absence of detail while giving a sense of monumentality to his work.We invite you to visit our gallery to see an important collection of the works of Carbonell ranging from maquettes to monumentals and the paintings and sculptures of Mauro Arbiza.

On May 12 at Art Shangai
Beaux Arts is pleased to announce that we will be participating in the Art Shangahi 2010 Art Fair on May 12, 2010, with the sculptures of Manuel Carbonell and the paintings of Humberto Calzada, Rafael Soriano, Philippe Dodard and Humberto Bermudez.

Emma Pineiro: Terra Firma
Daniela Montana, Curator
In Terra Firme, serene horizontal bands intercepted by abrupt dips and dubious perches find themselves in a progressively fragmented landscape, as Pineiro’s representational abstraction raises salient questions pertaining to the national ethos, a collective memory and the sacred mysticism of the Pampas. Terra Firma’s intimist topographies --layered in rich colors, applied freely to create contrasting patterns, depth and perspective-- have an inspired allure. Pineiro reveals a broken peace at the core of our existence --an ecological shift..Pineiro -- whose work reflects the influence of Masters with whom she studied including Eugenio Daneri, Krishna Reddy, Bob Blackburn, Tony Smith and William S Hayter – has been exhibited and collected by cultural institutions worldwide.

(Inside the Sanford and Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House)"BroadSword is must-see theater!" -The Miami Herald

Sixteen years ago, the Jersey band BroadSword broke up. Now their lead guitarist has gone missing. What the hell happened to Richie and who's the strange man with the disturbing news? BroadSword is all about myths, music, fantasy—and heavy metal deals with the devil!

Get ready for the reunion of the year, featuring some of Mad Cat Theatre's hottest actors, including actor and director Paul Tei (Barry on TV's "Burn Notice"), Erik Fabregat, Todd Allen Durkin, Gregg Weiner, Sofia Citarella and Ken Clement.

Written by Marco Ramírez (of TV's "Sons of Anarchy") and nominated for 5 Carbonell Awards, BroadSword is "insightful, beautifully modulated writing coupled with great acting and design!" The Miami Herald
