Weird Miami at Bas Fisher Invitational

From Jul 10th through Sept 18th, 2010.

altThere is a much more interesting – sometimes dark – and never boring side to Miami, one only known to the people who inhabit this town.  For any Miamian a typical day’s experiences could range from strange to the swampy sublime. Is there any such thing as “Flori-duh?”  It is only when one accepts the city in all its glorious weirdness that one can unearth the cracked and quirky gems that lie hidden within.

The artists, both Miamians and non-natives, consider their experiences with people they have come across, through mysterious topographies they have discovered, and objects they have excavated or exhumed, as a way to make sense of or share their unique finding.
Artists in the exhibition are Autumn Casey, Alyse Emdur, Adler Guerrier, Jason Hedges, Nicolas Lobo & Kenneth Andrew Mroczek, Justin Long, Isabel Moros and Peggy Nolan.

Weird Miami Artist-Led Bus Tours

During the 3rd Sundays of July, August and September the BFI will kick-off a series of monthly school-bus tours each led by 2 artists from Miami, taking tour-goers to unexpected locations around the city. Each location is selected by the artist-leaders, and will not be revealed ahead of time in order to keep riders in suspense. “We’ll load into the big yellow school bus and be completely at the artists’ mercy!” – Agatha Wara, BFI. The artists leading the tours are Kevin Arrow, Clifton Childree, Christy Gast, Adler Guerrier, plus other guests. Contact Bas Fisher Invitational to reserve tickets.
