HOW TO: Oh, look at me deepens Gonzalez’s commitment to creating provocative, participatory social spaces within institutional settings. As acts of queer infiltration, class—aware interventionism, her work wants us to see and explore, to dance and read—outloud the potential of our embodied cognition. We are only when we interact, when we commune.

From April 1 to June 30, the Miami Design District will feature Outage by Jennifer Levonian and Eva Wylie in its Jade Alley Films Series, a collaborative year-long art video feature of four artist video selections by the District's key institutions, including Locust Projects, de la Cruz Collection and ICA Miami.
Originally commissioned and premiered by Locust Projects in 2019, Outage is a video that utilizes Levonian's signature cut paper animation technique, which incorporates deftly rendered watercolors into short films that wryly depict prescient social narratives and Eva Wylie's unique printmaking techniques. The single-channel animation was made from over 3,000 frames and more than 275 screens were used to create pieces for the animation.
Viewable 24/7 at the Garden Building Lobby in Jade Alley.
Rujeko Hockley is an assistant curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art. She is the curator of the upcoming retrospective Julie Mehretu, opening in March 2021, and co-curated the 2019 Whitney Biennial.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Locust Projects has commissioned a new video by GeoVanna Gonzalez that will premiere on Thursday, April 15 at SoundScape Park in conjunction with the City of Miami Beach's Third Thursdays Culture Crawl and Poetry Month. Additional support provided by Miami Light Project.
HOW TO: Oh, look at me is a film that captures the multi-layered, interdisciplinary performance by GeoVanna Gonzalez, conceived as an activation of her sculptural installation of the same name. The performance features an original musical score by Batrypowr, involves two dancers, Cheina Ramos and Alondra Balbuena, and two poets, Zaina Alsous and Arsimmer McCoy, who interact with and exist within the structure.
WE ARE OPEN, Wed-Sat, 11AM-5PM! Appointments available and walk-ins accepted by capacity, masks required. Book here!
