TRANSMITTING NEW CONCEPTS IN CONTEMPORARY ART
SATELLITE is a new alternative exhibition that will be presented during Miami Art Week at several beachfront venues, each stewarded by renowned art curators and groundbreaking art organizations.
Satellite is transforming an entire neighborhood into a destination for the arts with new and exciting projects that span the gamut of art, music, performance, installation, new media, and technology activations, featuring groundbreaking work by artists and arts organizations, including Pussy Riot and Jacolby Satterwhite.
SATELLITE was conceived by artist Brian Whiteley and produced in partnership with Miami Project and Art on Paper Miami.
Celebrating the inaugural Satellite Show, the internet, and all that is digital, interactive and connected, Tropicult and artist, Michael Powell, proudly present “The Visit” a web-based artwork in which users can come together to create and share. Tropicult and Satellite invite web users around the world to log in and participate in the Miami Art Week festivities by collaborating on the digital canvas takeover by visiting: Tropicult.com/canvas (coming soon).
Once on tropicult.com/canvas, users may collaborate on an appropriated and altered looping video of Picasso painting on a large sheet of glass which is overlaid on the online canvas. Picasso appears to paint onto the screen from the virtual world and we paint back.
Michael Powell’s digital canvas takeover is set to go live on Satellite’s opening date (December 1st ) and will be available on Tropicult.com/canvas through January 2016. To document and archive the project, Tropicult will collect user’s drawings throughout the month long run, which will later be showcased in a photo gallery on the website
Launch Date: December 1st Time: TBA
