Project 924 | 924 Lincoln Road, Second Floor, Miami Beach
The inaugural exhibition for Project 924, As The Ferris Wheel Turns, features works by Anthony Ardavin, Katerina Federici, Alexander Guerra, Regina Jestrow, Hugo Moro, John Sanchez and Damian Sarno. Project 924 is a project space at ArtCenter/South Florida for exhibitions, performances and site-specific installations. Project 924 is located at ArtCenter’s second building at 924 Lincoln Road on the second floor. As The Ferris Wheel Turns utilizes the carnival as a backdrop to tell a universal story of life, love and loss. Works that appear whimsical and amusing are also quite poetic and profound. The exhibition includes multigenerational artists working in different mediums to tie the narrative together. The opening reception, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Wednesday, October 17, 2012, 6-10pm. The exhibition will be on view through November 18, 2012.
As part of the exhibition, Regina Jestrow presents The Patch Project, an environmentally sustainable barter patching project using scrap fabrics from past works that allows the participants to hold on to their special garments. Alexander Guerra creates a performance installation with his new works, Hybrid Bunnies. Utilizing Subtropics’ Fluxus Piano, Guerra creates a game of darts that allows the participant to try to hit the bull’s eye 2 of out of 3 times in order to win one of his Hybrid Bunny Prizes. During the opening reception, additional performances by David Rohn, Octavio Campos and others will be featured.
