Art Naples Presents: Miami Wave
Art Naples is proud to present the exhibition “Miami Wave,” curated by Miami artist Sergio Garcia. Miami has since been promoted within Spanish and Latin American culture by means of a steady program of art exhibits, literature, film, theater, music and the humanities. It has evolved in tandem with demographic changes and the ever-growing cultural dynamism of Miami.

“During the these four days, the Art Naples will become a meeting point for participation and exchange. In support of Art Naples mission to highlight the dynamic world of the art and culture from Miami, I have enlisted 12 galleries with 16 artists to exhibit,” notes Mr. Garcia. For the first time in the art fair industry there will be a “live” web cam Art Talk titled, ”Are We on the Same Wave?” This will be a “live broadcast” Naples-to-Miami and back with a meeting of the minds with those tailoring the making of Miami’s 1st Biennale to be scheduled in 2012.
The “Art Talk” moderator in Naples will be led by Miami Biennale’s chief director, Jorge Gutierrez. In Miami at the Biennale’s headquarters, the 25,000 sq.ft Dorissa building in Wynwood, the Art Talk will be led by Miami Biennale’s founder, Milagros Maldonado, and its director, Ariana Testamarck Orellana.
Sergio Garcia presents a wave of work that has been brought about through a dialogue among the arts with a pre- selection of the “Best Of Miami” contemporary art. This show, as the curator says, “is only the tip of the ice-berg.” From painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, objects, and installation, this show will captivate us with its beauty and outstanding quality.
