Art and Innovation Abound at MDC Galleries
MDC’s Art Gallery System (AGS) is offering a slew of exciting exhibitions designed to please everyone from novices to connoisseurs.
Transforming the Present
Conceptual art graces MDC’s Kendall Campus Art Gallery in All in the Present Must Be Transformed, featuring the work of Joseph Beuys and Matthew Barney. Combined with text explaining key elements of their work, this exhibition celebrates their use of materials, mutual interest in metamorphosis, employment of narrative structures and the relationship between action and documentation in their art.
Estopiñán Reigns at West
One of the pioneers of modern sculpture in Cuba and Latin America, Roberto Estopiñán has enjoyed a prolific 60-year career. Celebrating his 90th anniversary, the exhibition Homage to Roberto Estopiñán (A Latin American Modernist Master) at the gallery at MDC West reaffirms his place in the annals of contemporary art.
Innovation at North Campus
Students at Miami Dade College once again participated in the annual League for Innovation Art Competition hosted by Gallery North at North Campus. Out of 52 student works submitted from all campuses, five were selected by the jury to earn awards.
Through conferences, events and competitions, the League for Innovation promotes arts education and fosters the next generation of artists. In one of its closest collaborators since the organization’s establishment, Miami Dade College will host the League’s National Art Competition next year.
“The League’s commitment to the arts goes beyond just appreciation,” said AGS Director Jorge Gutiérrez. “It fosters a unique environment for artists and students from which new ideas emerge that can change the way we see the world.”
