Renowned environmental artist Xavier Cortada will host a kickoff Art Basel event for “Antarctic Ice Paintings: Global Coastlines and Underwater HOA,” a series of 60 untitled, never-shown-before paintings that the Pinecrest Gardens’ artist-in-residence created while in Antarctica, using the very glacier ice that threatens to drown Miami. As part of the exhibit, Cortada will invite General Consuls to name the works after other global coastal communities impacted by sea-level rise. The exhibition serves as the launch of the Underwater HOA participatory public art project, which aims to engage citizens across Miami-Dade County in addressing rising sea levels. FREE and open to the public. The exhibit is open until January, 13, 2019.
