How Deep Is The Ocean?
Modern Self-Discovery at Miami River Art Fair
December 3 - 5, 2018
Art Basel Miami Beach is one of the world's most successful art events, which takes place at the same time as numerous satellite art fairs in the first week of December. In the heart of Miami Downtown, just a few Metromover stops away from the new Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Miami River Art Fair reflects the urban landscape of Miami and responds to the city's rapid growth as a cultural destination.
One of the exhibitors at Miami River Art Fair Dr. Barbara Aust-Wegemund, Director at Gallery AHC Projects (booth B1), is invited to curate the group show "How Deep is The Ocean?" Modern self-discovery in Philosophy and Arts. A curated group show with Pioneer Artists. About her concept and intention, the curator and art historian explains:
"The Romantic natural philosophers interpreted the sea as a source of life, continuing in the creation of modern criteria of ethical behavior, which culminates in a new bio-ethics and a new understanding of the sea. The curated exhibition is asking "How deep in the Ocean?" as a philosophical question. Ocean Philosophy delves into aesthetics - the sea as the symbol of the sublime - and modern self-discovery - the sea as a mirror of the soul. The exhibition invites to explore connections between Romantic and Modernity, real and (inner) journeys, identity, infinity and space.
Celebrating international emerging and established artists in Miami, the juried show presents original artworks by:
Louis Atelouis, Tracy L. Barwick, Khalilah Birdsong, Carole Kohler, Marianna Kupriyanova, KanKan Ramos-Lim, Claudia Mini and Sal Sidner.
