Locust Projects is proud to present Philadelphia-based artist Raúl Romero’s new project Onomonopoetics of a Puerto Rican Landscape, an interactive mobile art project that explores how sound can evoke memory and a sense of place for Miami’s immigrant communities. The evolving multi-city project will be based at Locust Projects starting September 12 with initial performances in the public sphere taking place through October 24, 2020. Admission is free.
Rest Ashore is a new large scale multi-channel video installation by LatinX multi-disciplinary artist Juana Valdes. Rest Ashore reexamines the Cuban migration experience over the past sixty years and how it relates to the current global refugee crisis. The installation explores similarities in how the refugee crisis has been documented and disseminated in mass media throughout the years, both past and present, while creating a new visual vernacular honoring those who died at sea in their travels. Rest Ashore marks Valdes’s first significant expansion into video and a dramatic shift in her artistic process.
Please join Locust Projects and Oolite Arts for an online conversation with curator Dan Cameron on Facebook Live.
Dan Cameron is a New York-based curator, art writer, arts administrator, archivist and educator whose international career was launched with the 1986 exhibition Art and its Double at Fundació la Caixa in Barcelona.
Today Cameron is perhaps best known for founding and administering Prospect New Orleans, the triennial art exhibition that began operations barely a year after Hurricane Katrina (2007 to 2011); and for his exhibition program as Senior Curator at the New Museum from 1995 to 2006.
Dan was recently Artistic Director of Open Spaces, a citywide visual and performing arts festival that took place in Kansas City, Missouri, from August to October 2018, and a year prior served as guest curator of Kinesthesia: Latin American Kinetic Art 1954-1969 at Palm Springs Art Museum (2017), part of the Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time initiative. Cameron was also Chief Curator at Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, California from 2012 to 2015, and Curator of the 2016 Bienal de Cuenca in Ecuador. He most recently organized a retrospective survey of sculptor Leandro Erlich that was on view through October 2019 at MALBA in Buenos Aires.
