Kiki Valdes. Back in the Club Days

Cafeina. From May 6th through Jun 5th, 2010

altCafeina is presenting the latest exhibition of Miami emerging artist Kiki Valdes. Back in the Club Days showcases a collection of work from 2004 to 2006 in which Valdes spent live action painting at various nightclubs around Miami Beach and New York. The subject matter spans across narratives of Hispanic stereotypes amplified by motifs of Latin women and symbols of Caribbean culture and folklore.  Valdes created each piece in the show in a hurry amongst various venues’ spectators, in a fashion which he compares to Keith Haring’s New York City subway chalk drawings.

Cafeina is a multi-room, restaurant-lounge-art gallery with a lush outdoor garden. It is located at 297 Northwest 23rd Street in the Miami Wynwood Art District. The kitchen, led by Executive Chef Guily Booth, offers light bites and is open Wednesday through Saturday 6:00 p.m. to midnight. The bar is open until 3:00 a.m. Complimentary valet parking is available.
