Dual Frequency envisions artist initiatives to steer creative culture in support of their communities. Many participating artists curate, organize, perform, and teach as expansions of their individual practices. This exhibition activates the Art and Culture Center with interdisciplinary work from 14 preeminent South Florida artists selected to receive awards of either $15,000 or $7,500. These awards are among the largest such honors accorded by local arts agencies to visual and media artists in the United States.
The South Florida Cultural Consortium is the largest government-sponsored grant program for artists living in Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, and Palm Beach. It provides significant support to individuals who contribute to the cultural fabric of a vibrantly expanding arts community with no strings attached.
Four of the artists reside in Broward County: AdrienneRose Gionta, Jenny Larsson, Vincent Miranda and Marla Rosen. Other winners are Miami-Dade County: Alan Gutierrez, Aramis Gutierrez, Amanda Keeley, Christina Pettersson, Vickie Pierre, Julian Rodriguez and Barron Sherer; Monroe County: Roberta Marks; and Palm Beach County: Raheleh Filsoofi and Isabel Gouveia.
The Center’s Curator Laura Marsh was part of the Regional Panel that selected the recipients. “It was an honor serve on the Regional Panel along with Ricardo Mor from the Miami Center of Art & Architecture; Maria Elena Ortiz from Perez Arts Museum Miami (PAMM); Alpesh Kantilal Patel from Florida International University; and artist and previous consortium winner Sri Praba,” said Marsh. “I’m very proud to curate the show, Dual Frequency, at the Center. This group of artists represents some of the most committed and community engaged in South Florida.”
The South Florida Consortium is funded in part by The National Endowment of the Arts, The Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Arts Council, the Boards of County Commissioners of Broward, Miami-Dade, Martin and Monroe Counties, and the Palm Beach County Cultural Council.
Participate in a workshop led by Meredith Clements of the Broward County Cultural Division and Amanda Sanfilippo of the Miami-Dade Cultural Division at the Center before the opening on Friday, September 8 at 4:30 pm
