Jose Bechara
Until March 6
José Bechara. Pássaros geometricos e pelo menos um pássaro rectangular!
Bechara was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in this most recent exhibition of his work, Pássaros geométricos e pelo menos um pássaro rectangular! (Geometric Birds, a Rectangular Bird at Least), he continues to explore dualities. They remain traditional in that most are two-dimensional works of oil on canvas, yet contemporary in their incorporation and manipulation of rust as a medium. They include very rigid elements of geometry, but couple them with soft transitions of tones and colors.
Uisuk Byeon, Young Cho, Jessica Labatte & Briana Schweizer. The Triumph of Patience
Materials transform over time. The artists in this exhibition investigate and capture the frailty of their respective materials, while also reworking and transforming them. Working in Chicago, a city with deep foundations in labor, these artists employ common materials as a means of transcendence.Colectivo MR. Marina Garcia Burgos. Ricardo Ramon Jarne.

Kito Mbiango. 'L'Orange Elegans',
2008
Mixed Media on Canvas

Kito Mbiango. Solo Show
Mbiango draws from his wide-ranging travels and photographic experience in producing works that excite the imagination by crossing and blurring cultural borders between Eastern and Western spheres of influence. Elements of post-colonial commentary (initiated via found 18th and 19th Century engravings in the style of John James Audubon, J. Barralet, and James Fittler) and modern cultural references (through the use of turn-of-the-century photography and silkscreens) converge in a rich, complex layering of color and graphic embellishment.Above all, however, emerging artist Mbiango’s more pressing concern is the unity of both artistic and human ingredients: the integration of Eastern and Western influences seeks to peacefully reconcile the inherent cultural differences so ubiquitous in postmodern society. Overall, the goal forMbiango is to gather both art and its viewer into one stunning, deeply spiritual achievement.

Kito Mbiango was born in Brussels in 1966. He is completely self-taught in his technique and utilizes multiple production methods including image transfer and mixed media assemblage all applied meticulously by hand.

Jesus Soto
Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

Derek Yaniger. Paintings
Here is a brief bio in Derek's own words...“Okey Dokey Doggie Daddy, lemme give ya' the skinny on what makes me tick tock.

I sprung off my squawkers in 1960 in SwineCity Arkansas. Once I ponied up the bread, I split. I blew into Atlanta 'round the mid '80s and gotta gig scratchin' out art at a local sweatshop. I copped a squat there for 3 years but the cabbage was like, nowheresville, so I just had to cut out. I gave that nogoodnik from creepsville the heave-ho. I still roost in Georgia but nowadays I print my own foldin' green. Over the past 20 years, give or take, I've rolled out chicken scratchins for some way solid big wigs like Marvel Comics and Cartoon Network. Today I spend my dims and brights pedalin' my art to such mags as Atomic, Barracuda, and Car Kulture Deluxe. I also land a lot of gigs doin' prints for shows like Tiki Oasis, Hukilau, and the Wild Weekend.

Once you get a load of my art I hope you dig it the most. If it really flips your wig and you want me to scrawl somethin' out just for you, snap the whip, I'l make the trip. Here's wishin' you a one way ticket to Flipsville.

Plant ya' now, dig ya' later!”

Magnus Sigurdarson & Paul Stoppi , Beefeater, series 2009, C/print 24 x 36 in.

Until March 11
Magnus Sigurdarson and Paul Stoppi. Operation Beefeater.
Known for his witty pieces Magnus Sigurdarson is back with a ‘documentary’ tale of his trip to England. He worked in this project with Paul Stoppi and this is not the first time that both artists have worked together in collaborative projects, they also produced The Stranger: El Vikingo-Loss of an identity.Magnus’ work is characterized by a peculiar sense of humor and for being autobiographical, showing an existentialist view of life. As an Icelandic living in Miami now Magnus has been going through a process of adaptation to this environment, a situation that has made him aware of his distinctiveness. This questioning is what has driven him to look deeply at identity, hence the ‘posing’ as different characters. For this exhibition he has worked in various media: photography, sculpture and his trademark newspaper installations.

Marina Font, Untitled, 2009. El Contrato Series.

Until February 27
Marina Font. El Contrato
El Contrato (The Contract) is a series of photographs depicting a woman's journey of self discovery and identity. Although inspired by the artist's personal experience, many universal themes are presented that create a dialogue with the viewer. Gender, family, life cycles and memory are symbolically represented with elements charged with ritual and spirituality. The contract of loyalty with the fears and prejudices of the past is broken and the woman becomes free to discover herself in the many roles within contemporary society.Dina Mitrani Gallery opened in November 2008 and specializes in international contemporary photography. The gallery represents emerging and mid-career artists, offers artists talks and lectures on photography as well as photo-based books. The gallery is committed to promoting its artists, as well as working with independent curators to produce unique group exhibitions.

Magdalena Atria. Monstrous Moonshine
Magdalena Atria’s first solo exhibition in Miami presents us with a well-balanced display of her most recent works. Living and working in Santiago de Chile, Atria has developed a significant local and international career, with multiple solo exhibitions and participation in important international exhibitions at venues such as The Museum of Contemporary Art, MOCA (Los Angeles), The Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art (Austin), Bienal de Mercosul (Porto Alegre, Brasil), among others.Atria’s work connects with the modernist tradition of geometric abstraction, but with the express intent to relate it to specific visual situations encountered in the world. Abstraction within the modernist tradition searched for the absolute, for a disembodied realm of pure relations and correspondences, while Atria’s interest focuses not on the possibility of approaching pure relations but rather on its impossibility.

The main piece, which gives its name to the show, is a large scale painting made with plasticine (non-hardening modeling clay) directly attached to the wall of the gallery. Plasticine, a kind of modeling clay commonly used by children at a very young age for making small figures or similar crafts, is a material Atria has been working with for some time now, creating paintings with intricate surfaces composed of highly detailed and precise abstract images.

Fragmentary Memories
Anja Marais & Guillermo PortielesAnd Artformz Outzide Hosts a special guest performance by:The Oscar Fuentes Combo

Guillermo Portieles grew up studying art in Cuba from the I.S.A Institute of Superior Fine Arts to the San Alejandro School of Fine Arts in Havana. In the early 90’s he immigrated to the US and began winning awards and showing nationally in galleries and .

Portieles’ works are predominantly 2-dimensional, however in this show we will see a unique and compelling sculptural object accompanying his paintings in this exhibit. The figurative and symbolic works are distant yet familiar at the same time, powerfully conjuring up his recollections of youth, homeland, and way of life in a Cuba, ever-present in his thoughts.

Anja Maris’ work examines the fragility of life and identity. In the gallery her installation work addresses the same theme yet pushes one’s imagination to the edge of possibilities. She is from South Africa where she grew up and received her degree. After graduating from the University of South Africa, Marais immigrated to the United States .

Her piece in the main space is explained as a hypothesis of ‘Cellular Memory’ (also the title of the work). Cellular memory is the speculative notion that human body cells contain clues to our personalities, tastes, and histories, independently of either genetic codes or brain cells. Will your cells encoding include the sins of your fathers, will your body’s memory be inherently filled with these genetic conflicts?

José Antonio Hernández Diez. Recent Work
This exhibition presents new work in progress from José Antonio Hernández Diez and will evolve as it travels to new venues. After its presentation at KaBe Contemporary this exhibition will travel to Periférico Caracas among other venues in 2010.This show features the Venezuelan artist’s first solo exhibition in Miami, his most recent work, an installation consisting of video and photography, reflecting the sentimental side of human beings. People who were touched by a personal tragedy, perhaps the loss of a loved one due to everyday crime, seek some sort of consolation or closure. His work explores time travel and the possibility to say one last goodbye or undo facts, such as death, thus contributing to a more humane and happy society.
