2016 Common Field Convening Miami

2016 Common Field Convening MiamiOctober 20 – 23, Little Haiti Cultural Center, 212 NE 59th Terrace, Miami

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. #CommonFieldMIA
