Vizcaya Museum and Gardens’ Contemporary Arts Program (CAP) presented A Futurist Evening at Vizcaya on December 7, 2013, during Art Basel Miami Beach. Eight local artists and/of collaborations were commissioned to create site-specific, performance-based works for a one-night only exhibition. The artists’ works were installed throughout Vizcaya’s Main House and Gardens. More than 1,000 guests attended the event.
Free School: Disruptive Pattern in Literature and Art
Michelle Weinberg and Denise Delgado invited guests to participate in a lesson inspired by Futurist poetry and rhetoric in Free School. The class congregated in a tent-like room decorated—as were the instructors’ uniforms—with “dazzle patterns” inspired by those created by English Futurists and used to camouflage warships beginning in the First World War.
