Locust Projects: Meet the Artists Reception and Performance

Join Locust Projects, Miami’s longest running nonprofit alternative art space, in its new home in Little River for a reception to meet exhibiting artists Tania Candiani and Cornelius Tullo. The event will include a special performance by Tania Candiani, and refreshments will be provided. For Miami Art Week, Locust Projects is featuring two new commissioned installations including, Waterbirds: Migratory Sound Flow by Mexico-based artist Tania Candiani. The work, originally commissioned for the 23rd Biennale of Sydney and re-imagined for Miami, is a hanging “river” made with tree branches collected from a riverbank in Mexico, many of which are also native to South Florida. The massive, suspended organic shape will respond to Locust Projects’ architecture and reference the waterways and migratory path and birdsong of water birds that pass through the Everglades and South Florida. On view in the Project Room is Poetics of Place, an interactive architectural installation recreating a porch of a Miami home by Miami-based artist Cornelius Tulloch that foreshadows a future impacted by climate gentrification and the rapid development that threatens to erase the cultural fabric of our growing city.
