An Aluna Art Foundation Project Presents “Concerning the Spirtual in Art”

Saturday, August 25, 7pm - An Aluna Art Foundation, 172 West Flagler, Miami

“Concerning the Spiritual in Art” gathers together thirteen artists living in Miami, or who have been linked to the city who share the wish to make the invisible visible, and the knowledge that each work transforms the space and the reality of the beholder. The participating artists are the Argentinean Nicolás Leiva, the Venezuelans Andrés Michelena, Evelyn Valdirio and Lili(ana), the Cubans Heriberto Mora and Raimundo Travieso, and the Colombians Jorge Cavalier and Sara Modiano (1951-2010). With the exception of  Modiano’s  seminal installation, Ser, included as a tribute to this valuable artist who passed away, and who embarked with this work on her search for a representation of the soul, the rest of the pieces reveal little known phases in the production of the invited artists, either because they are part of their most recent work, including pieces that mark the beginning of a new type of exploration, or because although being of great interest, they have never been exhibited before. Also in the adjacent spaces we will have the participation of the painter Margarita Lega and the photographer Juan Carlos Mirabal. Parallel to this, the “Mad Cow Project Room” will be hosting a performance by the US artist Billie Grace Lynn.
