Second Saturday Art Walk Guide: Sluts, Dauphins, and More
While some top tier Wynwood galleries will be closed this Saturday in preparation for the season launch in September, this month's edition of the Wynwood Art Walk promises to be less crowded and there are still plenty of fresh opportunities to scope out some provocative art on our radar.
Among the best offerings opening at 6 p.m. Saturday are a sprawling photography show featuring the work of 14 international artists, a conceptual duo exploring third-wave feminism and a solo exhibit by a young Cuban painter whose vision of the French monarchy's waning days offers scathing commentary on absolute power. There's even a showcase of the bumper crop of talent emerging from the New World School of the Arts and a peek at a Wynwood dealer's burgeoning collection. Here are our picks for what not to miss this weekend.
Summer Photo Show 2012
This compelling photo-based show features scores of stunning images from 14 international artists. Now in its second annual edition, the exhibit includes entries from all styles of the genre, including mixed-media works employing photography. On view is everything from conceptual and documentary photography to narrative photography, photo essay, iPhoneography, and photo collage. Look for Noah David Bau's portraits of young professional muay thai boxers at a training camp in Bangkok's most notorious slum. Another artist worth attention is Miami's Lissette Schaeffler, who focuses her lens on the Magic City's seedy hot-sheet motels.
