Satellite Art Show
November 30 - December 4, 2021
1655 Meridian Avenue, Miami (South Beach), FL 33139
Satellite Art Show and Performance Is Alive continue their five-year collaboration by exclusively spotlighting contemporary performance art and time-based media at Miami Art Week 2021. Quinn Dukes and Brian Andrew Whiteley return to the curatorial team, creating an experience unlike any other. The fair is a platform for an international roster of live performers – an interactive space where guests can engage directly with the artists. Performance artists return to live actions, some choosing to engage virtually and others performing at an interactive distance. As the week progresses, the fair installation will evolve through the performances and the performance artifacts that remain in the space. Dukes and Whiteley have curated a multi-sensory experience with musical performances, drag shows, and revitalizing classic underground performative parties alongside a robust daytime program.
“In the wake of the pandemic, this program represents the re-emergence and reclamation of the body. The selected artists recognize the revolutionary power of the body through actions that often serve as a release from the trauma inflicted through centuries of heteronormative and colonial conditioning. In addition, this year’s program seeks work that actively rejects the systems perpetuating injustice and serves as a safe space for historically marginalized communities. This is the liberation of the body.” -Quinn Dukes
