Remember that time when Autumn Casey walked through Art Basel screaming at the top of her lungs?  That was December 2012, and from whatever bottlenecked, manufactured experiences came from visiting Miami’s mammoth art fairs during peek hours, Casey channeled them perfectly.  She later explained to HuffingtonPost, "The actual idea came from the pressures of feeling like you have to do something for Basel - like now is your time because the whole art world is going to be [in Miami].  So I thought, what if I just scream? Like a release of this frustration from the pressure."

How to make Zaha Hadid’s “Elastika” installation in Miami’s distinct Moore Building come alive; who was Peter Pan before he became THE Peter Pan; and how to meld psychedelic funk, rock and reggae with slam poetry.  All questions asked and answered at Miami Design District’s September “Site-Specific Performance Series,” which featured roving acts by Mad Cat Theatre Company, the cast of Peter and the Star Catcher (a musical slated to open in October at the Arsht Center with University of Miami’s School of Theatre), and the crew from Speakfridays.

On Wednesday September 10th, The District Miami, hosted the Taste For The Arts fundraising dinner to benefit the Copperbridge Foundation as part of Copper Fest.

Atis Rezistans isn’t your garden-variety lowbrow space.  Occupying two square blocks in Port-of-Prince Haiti’s Grand Rue district, it houses an elaborate labyrinth of studios, workshops and living areas.  The Atis Rezistans campus looks like a junkyard of champions from a distance; but walk closer, and visitors quickly realize how each artist space is interconnected with another, the informed relationship between discarded materials and assemblage, and the prolificacy with which residents are producing new work.
