Curated by Quinn Dukes

2210 NW Miami Court, Miami, FL (Wynwood District)
We are thrilled to announce our durational performance art and video performance selections for this year's Alive at Satellite Miami during Miami Art Basel Week 2019. All live performances will feature performance artists exploring durational performance actions. Durational performance allows artists the ability to employ repetition and endurance. Within an extended timeframe, conceptual actions can be more deeply explored allowing for discovery both within the artist and viewer. Durational performances will be presented by Coorain (Atlanta, GA, USA), Rae Goodwin (Lexington, KY, USA), Kiyo Gutiérrez (Guadalajara, Mexico), Amanda Kleinhans (Tallahassee, FL, USA) and Ginger Wagg + Mike Dimpfl (Carrboro, NC, USA).
Our Alive at Satellite Miami programming will also feature video performance projects from Sylvain Souklaye (Copenhagen/Denmark), El Putnam (Galway, Ireland), Katina Bitsicas (Columbia, MO, USA), Lariel Joy (Chicago, IL, USA) and L'Idylle | arts vivants (Montreal, Canada). This diverse selection of performative video works investigate a wide-range of social and political topics. Sylvain Souklaye's vulnerable video highlights the negative influence of digital stimulus. El Putnam explores the future of Irish borders post Brexit. Katina Bitsicas offers an opportunity for a heart transplant survivor to reclaim and transform traumatic hospital experiences. Lariel Joy draws on their traditional Korean heritage in the age of diaspora. And the Montreal-based collaborative, L'Idylle | arts vivants proudly celebrate LGBTQ+ diversity.
We look forward to seeing you back in Miami for Satellite Art Show's fifth edition during Miami Art Week!
It is a great pleasure to continue our FIAP2019 Artist Feature + Interview series with Montréal and Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez based artist-author-composer(+), André Eric Letourneau. Letourneau has performed since the 1980's and truly enlivens multi-media within his performance practice. His upcoming work for Martinique's International Performance Art Festival (FIAP2019), Standard III, employs the notions of chance and social practice. In our interview discussion, Letourneau clarifies the term "transmedia artist" and expands on his call to participation performance, Standard III.
In honor of Martinique's upcoming performance art festival, FIAP 2019, we are pleased to highlight NYC based artist, Hector Canonge. This is Canonge's second time presenting performance for FIAP. During our discussion, Canonge discusses the influences of place and community building on his performance and curatorial practice. Canonge performs a new solo work on Monday, November 11th from 3-6pm and in collaboration throughout the festival.
