2009 Sink 2024 Sunk: An Incomplete History of Artist Collectives and Artist-Run Spaces in Miami

Join us on Saturday, June 1, 2024, at 3 pm for a performance lecture by Carlos Rigau in conjunction with the exhibition the end / SPRING BREAK. This event is free and open to the public.

Artists frequently collaborate to make art works. These collaborations can lead to bodies of work, exhibitions–and in special cases– give way to artist-run spaces and collectives. These collaborative processes are rarely formally archived, yet it’s the invisible labor of these collectives that accumulate over time to create visible communities and identifiable movements. This performance will illustrate how crucial these activities have been to the “Miami” we live in today. 

—Parking available in rear lot or along the front of the building—

Programming for the end / SPRING BREAK is made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners; Teiger Foundation and The Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation at The Miami Foundation.
