OPENING -


No Whispering in the Dark

Gabriela Gamboa

No Whispering in the Dark is comprised of six video projections of mouths quietly voicing different clichés. Gamboa’s installation speaks about political correctness and issues of hypocrisy in our current tumultuous, and oftentimes violent, political situation.

On view through March 12, 2019.

Pool Series

Maritza Caneca

Pool Series is a selection of three immersive projections that recreate the sensation of being submerged in a pool. The looped feed is meditative in its repetitiveness and is meant to recall the universal relationship between man and water. The motion of the water is juxtaposed with the solidity of the walls it is projected on, allowing the viewer to exist in solid and liquid states simultaneously.

On view through March 18, 2019.

Holiday

Kayla Foster

In her series of works entitled Holiday, Kayla Foster explores the pertinence of gender roles and societal norms on the female body. As her personal take on modern-day society, she considers the different cultural constraints that impede women socially, economically, and emotionally and uses her installation as a symbol of rebellion. Holiday is displayed from a woman's perspective, making it society’s turn to be the viewer. Photographs by Andrea Valeriano.

On view through February 28, 2019.

Platform stage

Tropical Malaise Soundtrack by Wilted Woman (7:30pm)

Domingo Castillo


Tropical Malaise is a multipart film that explores the speculative space created by images in Miami, Florida. The film explores how images have operated in projecting the future of South Florida. Part science-fiction, part dreamscape for the global elite, Miami exists as a place where these fantasies come to push up against the natural environment, the built city, and the citizens who inhabit it.

The project itself isn't a completed film as such, but a slow accumulation of parts working towards a whole. The original soundtrack for Tropical Malaise was produced and composed by Wilted Woman, a Berlin-based American musician and will be released in March on Primitive Languages, an experimental record label based in Brooklyn, NY.


This project was commissioned by Bakehouse Art Complex as part of the group exhibition COLLECTIVITY.

Preview for Tabdeeli (Transformation) (7:00pm, 8:00pm)

Qinza Najm

Tabdeeli, meaning “transformation” in Urdu, is a performance exploring cultural, political, and personal displacement. The movements of the dancers represent a journey that depends on the individual’s determination to reach his/her full potential, to change his/her narrative from one of trauma to healing. The audience becomes witness to this transformation and is encouraged to consider how their own narratives can be rewritten and seen in a better light.

Artist talk and full performance April 5, 6–9PM.

Second Floor - Studio 6U

Sweep it Under/Out of the Rug

Qinza Najm

Sweep it Under/Out of the Rug is an ongoing project that explores the duality between internal/external violence and healing. Participants are invited to write about objects that have symbolically created violence and healing in their lives on silhouettes created out of sticky notes. This exercise, of writing about things we normally keep secret, is meant to create a sense of both individual awareness and community, as things that are normally “swept under the rug” come to light.
