There’s nothing short of excitement at the Bass Museum in Miami Beach these days.
This season, the cultural mecca will host Tracey Moffatt, an Australian artist known for works on the human condition, an eight-week lecture series on art history topics, and dance works by Hannah Baumgarten and Diego Salterini.
Tracey Moffatt, known for her formal and stylistic experimentation in film, photography and video, will exhibit “The Cabinet,” from January 23 through May 2. The exhibit is a story based on images and memories she retained from watching TV and movies in her childhood. Moffatt’s presentations are held in the collections of the Tate, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Los Angeles, and The National Gallery of Australia.
Additionally, running January 26 to March 16, the museum will host an eight-week lecture series focusing on topics in art history related to the Where Do We Go From Here? selections from la Colección Jumex exhibition. The lectures will examine how content and form have evolved through the ages by reviewing major movements, time periods and artists. Guest lecturers will include Susan McGuire, Silvia Karman Cubiñá and Victor Zamudio Taylor among others.
Celebrating their 10th anniversary of performances and education, Dance Now! artistic Directors Hannah Baumgarten and Diego Salterini will present EKPHRASIS: Art from Art at the Bass Museum on February 20. Site-specific to the unique features of the facility, the presentation will correlate directly to the three exhibitions on view at the museum. Each performance will include several separate and complete dance works, migrating through the museum, and will run approximately 60 minutes. Performances will begin at 12:30 PM and 2:30 PM and are free with museum admission.
The Bass Museum is located at 2121 Park Avenue in Miami Beach. To purchase tickets, call (305) 673-7530 ext. 1001.
