Enemy of the Good
PERFORMANCE: Friday, December 7th @ 7pm
Premiering at photo MIAMI 2007 is multi-media artist Janet Biggs’ powerful new work exploring control, obsession and Man’s relentless pursuit of perfection. Biggs’ work will be presented as a performance with prestigious Van Cliberg Prize winner José Luis Hernández-Estrada on grand piano and cellist/composer William Martin, along with Equestrian Andres Rodrigues. Sponsored by Claire Oliver Gallery and photo MIAMI

Optical Borderline: Housing Development Project
Optical Borderline: Housing Development Project by Héctor Madera González is a multimedia piece that pays homage to Puerto Rican culture and comments on aspects of this culture that have been in flux since the 1970s. Using neon lights, slide projections, and wall paint, Madera creates evocative installations that trace a pattern based on antique fences found in homes from the 1950s-1970s.

Sex, Gum, Corruption and a Dead Pony
For photo MIAMI 2007, FGA has invited John Neff, (Chicago) and Ozzie Forbes (Argentina/Puerto Rico) and Stefano Pasquini (Italy) among other international artists to develop a virtual collage that investigates the role of corruption in contemporary society. The works featured comment on political, corporate, aesthetic corruption, and sociological corruption in a variety of media, including college, video, and sound. The exhibition, curated by Pedro Vélez, will be screened throughout the week in the photo MIAMI lounge, in the rear of the marquee.

Purified by Fire
Philadelphia-based artist Matthew Suib’s installation, Purified by Fire, is comprised of seamless video loops constructed from just a few seconds of iconic cinematic imagery and commercially available special effect stock footage. The individual works in the exhibition challenge the physical and moral gap that separates Westerners, and specifically Americans, from war and destruction. Purified by Fire will include an outdoor window projection visible after sunset outside the photo MIAMI marquee. Commissioned by photo MIAMI

The Last Painting Show
A show about painting, without painting — curated by Paco Barragán, head of the photo MIAMI selection committee. Participating artists include Lidia Benavides, Chus García-Fraile, Raphael Di Luzio, Jesús Portal, Ryno deWet and Mariana Vassileva. The Last Painting Show challenges the traditional boundaries of painting –flatness, canvas, frame, brush, paint, referentiality- by means of a series of pictorial photographies and moving paintings that call into question its status. Photo-based and new media art become thus an unconfessed but essential element in the actual painting debate, turning PhotoMiami into one of the most conceptually attractive art fairs.
