Intersections (after Lautréamont) – 2015 CIFO Grants & Commissions Program Exhibition — Miami, USA — 3 SEP - 1 NOV, 2015

CIFO Art Space, 1018 North Miami Ave., Miami, FL. 33136

Caught in the dilemma between being the edge and the top, between being surface and symbol, the idea of reinventing Miami as ‘the capital of Latin America’ can be problematic. A sense of belonging and spreading roots have gained authority over the stereotypes of ‘the city of sun and frivolity’ or ‘the nostalgic city of temporary refuge.’ While that does not exclude the risk of replacing old labels with new, seen from another perspective, the willingness of acceptance, and even pride, in becoming ‘another capital for Latin Americans’ is remarkable.
