Second Saturday Art Walk Guide: May's Best Gallery Shows
In each of the past two years, as the Miami Heat has warped up to turbo speed while chasing the Larry O'Brien Trophy, there's been an added nervous energy in Wynwood during playoff time.
Edouard Duval- Carrié's Silver Landscape
This weekend's edition of Second Saturday promises to be no different, as local galleries and watering holes will be tuned into an anticipated Big Three smack down of hated Brooklyn on their home court in prime time.
You can also look forward to plenty of art on tap while Miami looks to go up in the series 3-0 on their way to a sweep of the Nets and that hoped for elusive ThreePeat.
Here is our slam dunk lineup for a sizzling Art Walk starting at 3 p.m. at most of the galleries where, like everywhere else in the Big Mango, a white hot fever is on full display.
Edouard Duval Carrié: Solo Exhibition
If you missed the Haitian-born, Miami-based talent's beguiling showcase currently on view at the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) here's the chance to catch a more expansive view of the artist's game. At Pan American Art Projects you'll encounter a mixed bag of moves ranging from older, more colorful pieces placed alongside the new. Duval Carrié dishes off on issues that have shaped the history of his homeland from colonialism to slavery, immigration and myth with a critical eye and a deft shooter's hand.
Pan American Art Projects 2450 NW Second Ave., Miami. 305-573-2400, panamericanart.com.
Since his rookie debut at Gregg Shienbaum Fine Art last year, this local street artist, known for his trademark latex paint-on-paper posters depicting protesters, police in riot gear, portraits of strangers, and others -- all with the words Clandestine Culture emblazoned across the bottom -- has refined the strokes. For his sophomore exhibit at Shienbaum, the artist, who goes by the moniker Poska, delivers unexpected back door cuts with new mixed media works and eye-catching installations that riff on everything from the sex industry and its workers, to medical marijuana and seedy, hot sheet motels in a gritty, in-your-face street baller way.
