New York & Miami Emerging Artists Collide at ArtCenter/South Florida's New Mashup: "I-95 South"

Through September 28, 2013.

Affectionately known as New York’s sixth borough, Miami Beach has long beckoned New York artists and collectors seeking fresh perspectives and revitalization. This cross-pollination forged strong links between the art Mecca up north and the tropical artist colony down south.

ArtCenter/South Florida, South Beach’s first art incubator, opened its doors in 1984 with a pioneering mix of artists, presciently perched in the middle of Lincoln Road.

Fast-forward 29 years … ArtCenter re-boots its New York-Miami affair, opening a new window into the future of this symbiotic tale of two cities with its new exhibition, I-95 South featuring the works of seven emerging artists – four from New York and three from Miami (ages 24-33).

The Miami artists are Johnny Laderer, Gustavo Oviedo and Luis Pinto. The New York artists are Tyler Healy, Dean Levin, Evan Robarts and Kyle Yanagihara.

Concurrent with this exhibition is On Location: Artha Project, a working open studio transplanting the shared Brooklyn collective of three of the New York artists.

This show coincides with I-95 South and debuts ArtCenter’s Project 924 as a working open studio featuring New York artists Tyler Healy, Dean Levin and Evan Robarts.
