Mere Façade is a curated group exhibition consisting of twenty Miami-based artists and cultural producers. The multimedia exhibition includes new, old, and revisited works by Kevin Arrow, Eddie Arroyo, Zack Balber, Franky Cruz, Cara Despain, Nicole Doran, Mauricio Gonzalez, Sinisa Kukec, Angel Garcia , Justin H. Long, Michael Loveland, Nice’n Easy, Jessy Nite, Oliver Sanchez, Tom Scicluna, Serge Toussaint, Agustina Woodgate, Antonia Wright and Bunny Yeager.
It illuminates the fetishized ideas of Miami and its manufactured histories, proposing moments that are marked by both nostalgia and absence. Here those moments also address topics like rapid neighborhood redevelopment or gentrification. Eddie Arroyo’s paintings document the vibrant facades of Little Haiti by serially depicting them as they become obsolete. Cara Despain’s sound installation, Sea Unseen, is a soundtrack to a world overcome by water. Mere Façade is a survey of creative production while signifying our recent past, drastic present, and possible futures.
