A Metaverse experience for Miami Art Week 2022

A metaverse experience in Wynwood. Article  source peakd.com/@artblogmiami

This year as galleries prepare the collective exhibitions for Miami Art Week, the entire world is learning about metaverse and the artistic technology involved in it. In only two years we went from paintings on a canvas to surreal creations in digital platforms. The technologic jump in art is fascinating and is happening very fast.

Art exhibitions have step to another level and as we are entering the second decade of the century twenty-one. Lately art and technology must go hand to hand. Artists, galleries and art centers are adapting to coexist with the new technologic advances that sped up during pandemic.

Now on these days every artist and gallery need a platform to sell online, the NFTs must be part of an art portfolio. And with all the excitement of this new era Miart Space gallery’s tenth anniversary in Wynwood will be a total new technologic experience in art. You are welcome to join this art event in December during Miami Art Week from December 1st to 8th. The gallery studio Miart Space is a fun creative place located in the main art district in Miami named Wynwood at 151 NW 36 St. Miami FL 33127. Definitely this new era expanded the parameters of art by incorporating new technologies and new perspectives of the cultural and physical frontiers in art. There are no physical limits for artists nor for galleries that had to adapt themselves. Who would imagine before that we could have a multiverse experience for customers at a gallery space? 

HISTORY MUSEUM MIAMI

Photography fellowship program winner

History Miami Museum is pleased to announce the launch of the show "A Portrait of the Pandemic.

The museum’s Center for Photography serves as the backdrop for Rashaan Alexander's largest show to date, with dozens of never-before-exhibited photos. The exhibit will open to the public with a VIP event on the evening of August 4th and to the general public on August 5th. 

The exhibition has more than 60 images that are a visual representation of experiences and attitudes resulting from the life-altering year of 2020 when our community struggled with the realities of a pandemic, racial injustice protests, homelessness, and the entertainment industry on the brink of implosion.


KOREAN  ART  SHOW

June 11th to August  10th in Wynwood

A group of talented South Korean artists will exhibit their artworks in Wynwood from Saturday June 11th. This collective art show will take place at  the gallery Miart Space at 151 NW 36 St, and the exhibition will showcase the artists: Jee Yoon, Hyeon Joo Park, Erion Cha, Sophia Kwak and Choo Kyung. In the image above the artist Jee Yoon who is the only from the group of artists who lives in Miami.

Modern Korean artworks and paintings require some understanding of the styles employed in Korean traditional arts such as ceramic or pottery.  To fully appreciate the aesthetic that Korean artists are trying to replicate it is important to understand about their history.

During the Japanese invasion in the 1880s, Korean art suffered a huge blow when the institutes of art education were shut down, famous works were destroyed or stolen, and Japanese subjects and styles replaced traditional Korean art.
