Serebrennikov’s colorful art and architectural renderings capture each building in its splendor. Exhibition continues through December 31, 2016.

Susan Miller: Testament In Stone
Continues September 11, 2016
Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, 301 Washington Avenue
305.672.5044 www.jmof.fiu.edu
Susan Miller "sees" through stone. She has the ability to perceive and reveal, through the density of weighty blocks of marble. The subjects of the pieces are connected to names from history, mythology and the Old Testament, like Solomon, Moses and Job and Leah, Hannah, and Ruth. The Biblical passages, poetry, and prose that accompany the works serve as inspiration and are further invitation to reflect.

An Image
Opens September 15, 2016
ArtCenter/South Florida, 924 Lincoln Road
www.artcentersf.org
Curated by Domingo Castillo and Natalia Zuluaga. Miami is a place where past, present, and future have been rendered by the proliferation of images. Here, advertising and architectural renderings converge into imaginaries that fuel real estate speculation, class divides, racial inequality, false centers, and shadow economies. An Image, reflects on this process in order to reveal how the future and the past are re-calibrated by images in order to keep the present in a state of becoming. The title is borrowed from Harun Farocki's film under the same name and references an acute awareness of these image logics. As a result, the exhibition-in the shape of objects, lectures, screenings, printed material, and education platforms-highlights the inherent political project at the core of this observation. Each occurrence over the course of this program seeks to think about the ability of an image to mutate, supplant, or intersect with reality and scale its effects across a gamut of impact zones and temporalities. Exhibition continues through December 18, 2016.
