Here are Costa’s 40 Years of surprising shifts. From Fashion Fictions to Theater Pieces, from Interactive sounds works to a Poem for the Deaf-Mute, from immaterial pieces to heaviest paintings ever. Art history turned around, emptied of its meaning, triumphant again.

Carlos Betancourt. Solo Exhibition.
Lapidus Infinitus
In Betancourt’s most recent photographic artwork, the artist continues to assemble explosive compositions consisting of thousands of photographs of objects, people, flowers and other elements that occupy the superb glitzy realm of beauty for which he is known. The images appear in their full kitsch splendor, possessed by an enchanting light and seemingly crystallized by a magical sorcererIn addition, there is a sprawling three-dimensional installation of multiple column pedestals, each supporting an accumulation of auspicious objects to be worshipped. A symmetrical assembly creates spaces for interaction within this fantastical world. As with the photographic compositions, this large-scale installation, Portrait of a Garden, iconizes these pop objects the artist has gifted with a unique sense of dignity.

PROJECT ROOM – Geo Graphic
A group exhibition brings together gallery and guest artists including Luis Alonzo Barkigia, John Bailly, Clifton Childree, Irene Clouthier, Felice Grodin, Jill Hotchkiss, Laura Kina, Alberto Latorre, Michael Loveland, Michael Scoggins, Carlos de Villasante, and Annie Wharton. Each artist is working with the same initial element, a world globe, and transforming it, thereby providing their own vision.

Beloved Structure: The Argentine Legacy.
Curated by Eva Grinstein
Fabián Burgs, Martín Di Paola, Marcolina Dipierro, Verónica Di oToro, Lucio Dorr, Silvia Gurfein, Silvana Lacarra, Adriana Minoliti, Karina Peisajovich, Pablo Siquier and Andrés Sobrino.
Latin American Abstract Geometric painting, with its strong ties to Europe yet with its undeniably great, regional protagonists, has left an enormous legacy to the contemporary art scene of the continent.In this opportunity, Alejandra von Hartz Gallery has invited the curator, Eva Grinstein, to present a carefully selected group of artists, who inherited and continued this rich tradition in Argentine art. They “reinterpret and---in a way--- render homage to the masters of the vanguard, who changed the direction of Latin American art in the mid 20th century.”

Grinstein notes: “This selection presents the work of eleven accomplished Argentine artists of the new generation, who through the use of very diverse materials and techniques---painting, reliefs, light pieces, and drawings---reignites and updates the passion for structure that characterized the artists that challenged the paradigms of representation.”

Carlos Irijalba, Twilight, 1
20 x 120 cm

Carlos Irijalba. Twilight.
Irijalba, (Spain, 1979) presents us with an exhibition about the way in which Western culture perceives reality through the use of artificial light. The placement of a light fixture, like those used in football stadiums with expectant audiences, within a natural, untouched forest creates a surreal atmosphere. The focus shifts away from the habitually illuminated scene, to the artifact that emanates light.The artist generates an amalgam of contrasts: western culture, which reconstructs reality with lighting effects with the eastern concept, which focuses more on shadows. We are faced with a critique of the society of the spectacle, the insignificance, the noise and the general conformity that dominates contemporary culture.

Dina Mitrani Gallery opened in November 2008 and specializes in international contemporary photography. The gallery currently represents eight emerging and mid-career artists and will be offering a lecture series and photo-based books. The gallery is committed to promoting its artists, as well as working with independent curators to produce unique group exhibitions

Looking at a diversity of artworks from different perspectives it is easy to see why abstractionism has survived. With that thought in mind we organized this collective exhibition in which we show different approaches to abstract art.

The exhibit brings together pieces by artists from different countries, periods and trajectories. Some are very well known internationally while others are best recognized in their own countries. Some of these artists dab at abstraction as part of their creative journey, as is with Ferrari and Raul Martinez, while the rest can be seen as maintaining it as a sort of more permanent trend.

Manuela Ribadeneira. If you are sinister…
Ribadeneira's Ribadeneira's practice can be understood as an interrogation around the phenomena of the territories. Territories interpreted not only as physical entities but also in relation to the processes that contrast ideological, political and identity wise horizons. The poetry contained in her works have the virtue of relativizing the individual gaze towards the sensible themes that she depicts, making the perceptive experience complex by not using obstinate rhetoric that wants to teach a lesson or denounce.

Jose Bedia. Ritual of Passage
First solo show of new work for Cuban contemporary artist Jose Bedia to take place in Miami, in 2 years. The artist will exhibit over 15 new mixed media paintings in which he continues to explore connections between our spiritual origins, indigenous cultures and our contemporary selves. Omar Pascual-Castillo writes:“We have the truth, the reality, of a man who finds in these cultures the hopes of life and the solution to the ethical-religious disaster of contemporary society, a man who finds in art a way to make them worthy as “new fetishes of adoration”, as if making a “conceptual ready-made” that uses art to recreate the force of his contents, of his inheritance, of his energy.”

Born in Havana, Cuba in 1959 Jose Bedia has come to the forefront of contemporary artistic production as is recognized as one if not the most important artist to have emerged from Cuba during the past 20 years. He has exhibited in countless internationally renowned museums, receiving a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1994 and is part many of the most significant private and public collections across the globe including the MOMA in New York, The Whitney Museum, the Tate Gallery and the Hirschorn Museum in Washington D.C.

There will also be a retrospective of the work of Jose Bedia at the MIA Art Fair 2010 taking place 7th – 10th of January at the Miami Beach Convention Center

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.

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.

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.

The exhibit displays the unique way in which each of the two artists has chosen to develop their work using found materials. Both approach the technique of assemblage of found objects with thematic similarities yet each achieves a striking difference as is evident in the presentation of the final artworks.Rivera-Bond places an installation in the galleries project room as well as works in the main space. Also in the main space, Haynes will be exhibiting 3 dimensional constructions and directing an audience participatory piece involving a new work designed around the theme of words as text, written or typed.

Both artists address the “feminine” as a means of personal expression in reference to common societal rolls, consumerism, and the body.
