El Raft de Madeinusa at The Sagamore Hotel South Beach
December 2, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - December 7, 2020 @ 6:00 pmFree
Opening December 3, at the Sagamore Hotel, South Beach, we have the pleasure to be invited by curator and art maven extraordinaire Grela Orihuela (founder and executive director of PLACE Project Group , founder and executive producer of 1meter50, and co-founder of Wet Heat Project ) to be part of the many art happenings onsite.
For CAMP, we kick off with works from F.A.M.A artists: Alina Rodriguez-Rojo and Damian Rodriguez, also on site will be flags from: Yolanda Sanchez, Angela Bolaños and Debra Rosental. We are also ecstatic to announce that CAMP is also part of the art in the Sagamore Bungalows project where we are proud to present the latest collaboration of artists Aurora Molina and Edison Peñafiel with their piece: El Raft De Madeinusa (pictured above), an installation which presents a moment from a journey across the ocean — a scene that appears as an echo of Géricault’s Raft of the Medusa.
El Raft de Madeinusa captures the struggle of migrants facing the dangers of the open sea to find new land, made in collaboration between fiber artist Molina and multimedia installation artist Peñafiel. The artists — immigrants from Cuba and Ecuador, respectively — have explored themes of human movement throughout their careers.
