The Common Field Convening is an itinerant annual gathering created by and for the field of visual artists’ organizations. These organizations support artists and foster experimental projects that are responsive to and embedded in the places and communities in which they live and work.
This years convening in Miami investigates the contexts and conditions of experimental arts organizing in a time of accelerated capitalism. The convening is organized in collaborating partnership by Miami’s BFI (Bas Fisher Invitational), Cannonball, Dimensions Variable, and Locust Projects, an alliance of local Miami organizers and a national Common Field team.
The 2016 program includes panels, breakouts, data blitzes, workshops, events, tours, and celebrations throughout the city. This year’s program includes a variety of formats for intimate conversation, peer-to-peer exchange and cross-pollination around both practical and value driven issues. It also provides forums for Common Field members to connect and strategize trajectories for the year ahead.
Tickets for the event are $150 / $125 for Common Field members. The tickets include access to the Thursday opening, two full days of panels and sessions, Sunday tours, light breakfasts and lunches on Friday and Saturday, and a dazzling array of social events. Tickets also include opportunities to present and share project and organizational information with other attendees. #CommonFieldMIA
