Dimensions Variable: Multidisciplinary @ Open Source Gallery
Sep 1 – Sep 24 all-day
Dimensions Variable: Multidisciplinary @ Open Source Gallery |  |  |

Dimensions Variable presents “Multidisciplinary,” a collaborative exhibition at Open Source Gallery. “Multidisciplinary” will be on view from September 1-24 with an opening reception on September 1 from 7-9pm.

There’s sometimes a misconception that artists should only have a studio practice and should follow a traditional path often specified by the art establishment. However, artists who engage in activities beyond the studio reflect the true tradition of artistic practice documented throughout art history. Artists have always been writers, critics, curators, organizers and initiators of change outside the studio. From founding historically important cultural spaces and curating exhibitions that changed the course of art history, artists have always been at the helm.

“Multidisciplinary” was conceived as a response to the Open Source 2016 program which invited international artist-run projects to curate its entire season. With this concept in mind, Dimensions Variable amplified the idea and invited a select group of artist-run spaces in South Florida. The idea is not to invite them to curate special projects, but rather to include the work of the artists who run these projects as a way to honor their work and what they bring to the community. The diverse works in the exhibition reflect the practices and interests of all these “multidisciplinary” artists. They engage the community within and beyond their studio practice contributing vital programming to the contemporary art landscape in South Florida.

Dimensions Variable (DV) is an exhibition space committed to the presentation and support of contemporary art. Through a collaborative exchange with artists and institutions, DV develops an exhibition program that engages the community and promotes new and experimental ideas. DV was founded in 2009 by artists Frances Trombly and Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova, who currently serve as directors.

Bas Fisher Invitational (BFI) is an artist-run space dedicated to creativity, experimentation, and discourse in contemporary art. BFI aims to create a bridge between Miami and the International art world by curating a program that alternates between the local and the global. Naomi Fisher’s (director) work spans painting, drawing performance, photography, video and site-specific installation.

Bridge Red Studios is an artists’ complex in North Miami. Bridge Red is run by sculptor and painter Robert Thiele, his daughter, painter Kristen Thiele, and his son-in-law, photographer and graphic designer Francesco Casale. Kristen Thiele, Robert Thiele and Francesco Casale, the co-directors of Bridge Red Studios.

Girls’ Club is a non-profit private foundation and alternative exhibition space that educates and nurtures the careers of contemporary female artists and act as a resource for artist, curators, writers, students, scholars and the community. Michelle Weinberg (creative director), Francie Bishop Good (founder) and Sarah Michelle Rupert (gallery director) are visual artists.

Noguchi Breton was founded in 2013 and located in the Little Haiti district of Miami. Noguchi Breton presents creative content that reflects and critiques the regional and vernacular culture of South Florida. Loriel Beltran and Domingo Castillo are co-directors and co-founders of Noguchi Breton.

Although dance music is no stranger to supergroups, few ever manage to find a place in our hearts. Metroplane – the brainchild of OWSLA house maverick, Alex Metric and Belgian nu-disco savant, Aeroplane – makes the cut. With stamps of approval from tastemakers like Annie Mac, the newly minted duo is bringing their sense of adventure and experimentation to our favorite anything-goes spot, House of Yes. Sexy aerialists, intoxicating lights and hunger for curiosity will set the tone for a night.

Born out of a random b2b set on an Asian cruise, the core of the project is made up of Aeroplane’s famed disco grooves and vintage synths, paired with Alex Metric’s edgier tones and sharp drum racks.

Free the Art #2 at The Living Gallery! @ the Living Gallery |  |  |

We are hosting another one night only event with all FREE ART!

The goal is to erase the competitive elements of money deciding the value of art- as well as liberating the artist from equating monetary value to his/her artwork.

Guidlines:
**Humans can take 1 piece of art per person (You will put your name next to the piece and take it at the end of the event)-

If your name falls down, or something happens… theres nothing that can be done!! Let it go and pic something else!! ♥

Even though an exchange is inevitable, the mentality of this event is not an exchange- the notion is that the artwork is free- it is about giving something away without needing to get anything in return!

Babyfather (Live) at The Panther Room @ The Panther Room @ Output

Babyfather (Live) at The Panther Room @ The Panther Room @ Output |  |  |

Get tickets: http://ticketf.ly/2apjSGn

Babyfather isn’t an easily digestable talent. His contrarian and genre-swapping sounds lead to music that can be confusing, undefinable and yet still hopeful: all the makings of true protest music.

Babyfather is one of the lastest projects and monikers for artist Dean Blunt, known for his solo work and also as part of the duo who created Hype Williams.

Babyfather’s sound is a painfully raw, emotionally generous and politically charged with recent heralded EP, has made timely waves in today’s turbulent climate.

The group’s live act is a fascinating peek into the psyche of a man who we are still miles away from understanding. The internationally renknowned sound system in Panther Room was the draw for the artists, looking for impeccable sound for his NYC show. Please purchase tickets in advance as capacity is limited for this intimate set.

Taking place from September 17th – 22nd during IFP’s signature event, IFP Film Week, the Screen Forward Conference features public programming, panels, and the opportunity to meet with today’s most exciting independent filmmakers, content creators, and industry leaders. The first wave of Conference programming includes special appearances from Academy Award winner Laura Poitras (CITIZENFOUR), actress and activist Rose McGowan, Rebecca Hall and Antonio Campos (of the upcoming Christine), Ezra Edelman (O.J.: Made in America),comedian and podcaster Phoebe Robinson (2 Dope Queens), Refinery29 CCO Amy Emmerich in conversation with writer and comedian Jacqueline Novak, and case studies of 2016 hits Weiner, The Fits, Hello, My Name is Doris, and The Witch, with more programming to be announced in the coming weeks.

As you may have heard, after 37 years in Manhattan, IFP Film Week is moving across the river to Brooklyn. The event will set up shop in DUMBO anchored around our headquarters, the Made in NY Media Center by IFP. Since its downtown beginnings as the Independent Feature Film Market (IFFM) in 1979, IFP Week has evolved into a must-attend gathering for the global storytelling community. It remains the only international co-production market for film – and now television, web–based series, and VR projects – in the United States, with over 150 projects from over 22 countries curated and presented as works–in–progress each year.

We would appreciate your help in spreading the word! To make this year’s Film Week better than ever, we are relying on the support from our community to get the word out about all the amazing programming that’s headed to DUMBO, centered around our home base at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP. More information about purchasing passes, Screen Forward Conference programming, and general questions about Film Week can be found at our new dedicated website. Any and all ways that you can share this information with your readers goes a long way and is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your continued and past support of IFP and independent film!

Revered for 90’s club anthems like “Push The Feeling On”, “Always” and “Love Changes”, MK is the face of masterful reworks in 2016. The icon has been using his Area10 parties to spread the gospel of house to raving millennials everywhere – reminding dancers to throw out the molly, pick up a beer and focus our energy on feeling ourselves on the dance floor!

After a wildly buzzed about 21-city tour dubbed ‘Area10: The Warm Up Sessions’, MK is going hard with the party series and bringing it to the place where home-grown American house music lives in Brooklyn, the legendary vintage nightclub Sugar Hill Disco.

Marc Kinchen’s masterful house taste has provided us with a fully stacked lineup of talent – we’re being treated with Omar S, CamelPhat and 808 resident Turtle Bugg as specials guests (not to mention those delectable Sugar Hill Chicken plates…) for this special partnership between 808 and Area10. This for those who can appreciate the realness – no b.s., just full-throttle fun!

Brooklyn Raga Massive: John Coltrane Birthday Celebration @ Littlefield

Brooklyn Raga Massive: John Coltrane Birthday Celebration @ Littlefield |  |  |

World Music Institute Presents:
In celebration of John Coltrane’s 90th birthday, the dynamic and hugely popular Brooklyn Raga Massive, a collective of forward thinking musicians rooted in and inspired by the classical music of India, pay tribute to his legacy through their interpretation of his music. John Coltrane remains a pivotal force in the styles of modal jazz, avant-garde jazz, hard-bop and world music. Through his truly unique music, Coltrane bridged seemingly disparate cultures the way only few figures in modern music ever did. With records like Om and songs like India, Coltrane and his legacy have led a movement towards bringing Indian music influences closer to the world of Jazz music. For this performance Brooklyn Raga Massive will be joined by special guest, the highly revered post-bop jazz pianist Marc Cary.
