“Pleasure, Fear and the Pursuit of Happiness” Preview and Reception

Pleasure, Fear and the Pursuit of Happiness Preview and ReceptionFriday, June 28, 5pm-7pm – Miami Beach Botanical Garden, 200 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach

The Bass Museum of Art along with Miami Beach Botanical Garden and the ArtCenter/South Florida present Nayda Collazo-Llorens: Pleasure, Fear and the Pursuit of Happiness, a public textual intervention consisting of text bubbles throughout the walking paths of the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. Collazo-Llorens works are based on thoughts and memories, both real and invented, collected from Miami Beach locals and visitors. The text was collected by completing on-site questionnaires, informal surveys and casual conversations in and around Miami Beach. Pedestrians will experience the narrative by participating in an open-ended journey, a textscape or mental mapping to accompany them as they walk the gardens. The artist will be present and available for on-site interviews and photos from Tuesday June, 25 through Friday June, 28 during her installation process. There will be a reception and preview on Friday, June 28 from 5-7pm at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden with cocktails and artist interactions.
