Subculture: Microbial Metrics and the Multi-Species City

 

New York City
Through January 12, 2019

 

Storefront for Art and Architecture
97 Kenmare Street, New York, NY

Subculture questions the common perceptions of our interactions with the microscopic world, providing insight into the future of design. The exhibition brings together work in biology, data science, material science, and design to flip the notion of a “healthy” city on its sterile head. An active metagenomic sequencing laboratory in Storefront’s gallery space explores the invisible ecologies of our built environment, provoking deeper analysis of the character and evolution of the abundant genetic landscape of our cities.

Kevin Slavin / Elizabeth Hénaff / The Living (David Benjamin, John Locke, Danil Nagy, Damon Lau, Dale Zhao, Ray Wang, Jim Stoddart, Lorenzo Villaggi), in collaboration with Evan Eisman Company

Cuban Streams: 1855 – 1965

 

Miami
Through May 19, 2019

 

Miami Dade College’s Cuban Legacy Gallery
Freedom Tower, 600 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, FL

Cuban Streams: 1855 – 1965, a multi-media installation by the Miami artist César Trasobares. The installation features captivating and immersive video projections that highlight historical photographs of the island nation from the collection of Ramiro A. Fernández. In 1980, Fernández began collecting photographs that chronicle more than 100 years of the visual heritage of Cuba. Trasobares has sequenced hundreds of these images to create videos that provide vivid evidence of a culture and people transitioning from colonial rule, evolving through decades of urban and social growth, and surviving momentous historical upheavals.

 

Best book to pair with this exhibition:


Cuba Then: Revised and Expanded
by Ramiro A. Fernández is a welcome new edition of this seductive and lush photographic survey of the small island that continues to fascinate the world.
