Opening reception: August 11, 2012. 6:00 p.m.
From August 4 through 25, 2012.
Thirty one artists – all graduates of the New World School of the Arts high school and college unite for one exhibition in Miami called “Young Blood: Homecoming 2012”. This is the fifth installment of Young Blood, an annual fundraiser exhibition featuring NWSA high school and college alumni founded by high school graduate Michelle Gomez, 08’. A portion of the sales benefits the NWSA high school and college visual arts department, which helped shape and develop the artistic talents of this group.
A new addition to the Young Blood team is the guest curator, John Witty. “My aim as guest curator is to create a coherent presentation of the cross section of attitudes and media that express our relationship to our physical and conceptual home. This can describe a literal place of origin, such as Miami or South Florida, as well as the conceptual structures we create to embody more abstract notions of home, like a sense of belonging or the recollection of a moment of learning or discovery.
Artists submitted work in a variety of media, investigating notions of home from a range of perspectives, at once celebratory, nostalgic, and critical,” says, John Witty; who graduated from NWSA high school in 2005.
Participating artists are Roman Arevalo, Barbara Bollini, Grace Berler, Nicole Burko, Tamara Cedre, Morel Doucet, Alice Eagle Michelle Carmen Fernandez, Diana Garcia, A.G. Viva, Sheena Klimoski, Matthew Krawcheck, Melissa Leandro, Danielle Levine, Ray Lopez, Amanda Madrigal, T. Eliott Mansa, Alexander Moir, Yamel Molerio, Nicole Mucher Carlene Muñoz, Adriana Cristina Sánchez, Carlos Sanjurjo, Daniel Santa Vincent Serritella, Nicole Serize, Gabriel Sosa, Erika Suhr, Jessica Suhr, Jose Luis Telot, and Jovan Karlo Villalba.
