Post #421 • December 3, 2004, 9:20 AM • 10 Comments

Sites-Miami at Lummus Park, organized by William Kiddell and Brook Dorsch, offered the opportunity to run around outside in half-darkness looking at art. Very fun. Below, giant Legos by Bulika.

Carlos de Villasante.

Tahu Deans & Brad Downey from England.

Robin Griffiths (check out his review in Art in America this month).

Rebecca Guarda.


Guerra de la Paz.

A formidable piece by Robert Huff. I come up to the second crossbeam.

Charo Oquet.

Ralph Provisero, with Brook Dorsch standing alongside to demonstrate scale.

At Lucid, curated by Jordan Massengale, a little knockout of a painting by Jeremy Brochue.

Veronica Fazzio.

Demet Koc.

Again, off to see more...

Where is the Lucid show (as in exact address) and what are the hours?



December 3, 2004, 8:26 PM

Lucid is on NW 3rd ave. and 28 st. The closing of the show is this Saturday from 8 - 11 p.m.



December 3, 2004, 9:44 PM

there are hours? Isn't this an outdoor park?



December 3, 2004, 10:02 PM

i believe lucid is a seperate event from lummus park. Lucid being the one with hours.

This is only sort of tangientially related to the current post, but it IS relevant to the importance of blogs to arts coverage, and subsequently to artblog, MAeX, etc. covering ABMB and other Miami arts stuff. Yesterday, over at The Artful Manager, Andrew Taylor posted about Shrinking media and lagging coverage, referencing a new study on major metropolitan news sources by Columbia University's National Arts Journalism Program. The report doesn't tell us anything totally new, but just underscores that what folks like Franklin and Onajide are doing is even more important. Thanks for the local coverage, guys! (I'm cross-posting this comment at both blogs...)

enough already with the self portraits villasante
we get it painted it
its like the psychology of you is not even present so how am i to sense any sympathy or apathy with your image
its just too predictable with many of your paintings
where is change
is this about marketing?

Franklin, I went to the address given above for Lucid, and it was either wrong or the show was not open Friday night. Please post the EXACT address. Thanks.

Jack, Lizzie gave you the address they have listed on the card. I don't have it any more exact than that, but it is correct. It should be open tonight.



December 4, 2004, 11:35 PM

-the show will be open tonight Sat. dec. 4th. at 8:00
- hope the design district does'nt drown out this important little exhibition...

Well, I managed to see Lucid tonight. The reason I went out of my way for a decidedly unglamorous show of student work with no "names" (not even of the local starlet variety) was the picture posted above of a painting by Demet Koc, whom I'd never heard of (she's an MFA student from Turkey at Miami International University). I was right. It's small (about the size of a standard sheet of paper) but choice. The photo is pretty good but it deadens the colors, homogenizes tonal variations and flattens the textures; the real thing is much nicer. I found it elegant without being decorative, sensuous but sober, complex but coherent. I bought it, and I'm sure I did better than some deep-pocket types at the Convention Center.
