Miami and artist Juan Luna-Avin will be hosting a mixer event at the Sonoma Valley Art Museum as part of the exhibition Sonido Pirata!
The event will involve a live food tasting of "authentic" Cuban tapas prepared by Miami and friends, the transporting and attendance of Miami's biggest fans (many of which are local San Francisco artists, costuming), gifts and Dj performance by Juan Luna-Avin. Funds raised for the event will go to food costs (such as shipping Cuban bread from a Los Angeles bakery), costumes for Miami and her two assistants in the event, the printing of digital recipe books, materials for gifts and documentation for event and the transportation of SF artists because quite frankly, Miami is nothing without her posse!
Here is information on the show!
Sonida Pirata: What You Need You Have to Borrow
September 17, 2011-January 1, 2012
In Latin America it is common for popular music to be pirated and sold by street vendors as commercial merchandise. The artists in this exhibition take their cue from this phenomenon of sonido pirata (literally, “pirated sound”), making use of appropriated sounds and images and utilizing approaches to art-making that mimic and reflect black market economies. Working with video, music, performance, sculpture and installation, the artists create new sound and visual landscapes that function as forms of economic and cultural resistance. Curated by Julio César Morales.
