"Who Am I to You?" It's a very generous question for an artist to ask an audience. Not enough artists present this self-reflective inquiry. The ultimate value of art is not monetary, but what it offers in terms of in its experiential value.
Organized by the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale and curated by Freddy Jouwayed, South Florida can be proud of the 14 artists who were awarded a South Florida Cultural Consortium Visual and Media Artists Fellowship. Their resulting work is now in a truly memorable exhibition that runs through September 1.
The musical elements were displayed with the A S T R [ E L ] V E R A N D A installation at the close of the evening, a 3PQ collaboration, which includes artists Freddy Jouwayed, Sinisa Kukec, and Stephan Tugrul. They brought up Miami's finest music-makers, metal duo Holly Hunt and electronic dance master Panic Bomber, to perform as part of the art.
