Brisky Gallery Miami is proud to present Affiliated: The Art of the Urban Experience; an exhibition curated by Luis Valle, Brisky Gallery’s Director in collaboration with Jesse Henderson. The show will reflect a diverse approach at creating work influenced by urban settings. The exhibit will feature works by over 20 artists local, national and international. It will include a large yet cohesive range of work from painting, drawings, photography, sculpture and new media. “Affiliated”, is a result of the current movement in art, which reflects on the urban experience. Many urban, street, muralist and as well as fine artists rely on certain affiliations in order to succeed and accomplish their goals. Whether they are traveling to a new city and need someone to show them around or maybe they need to locate a wall to paint, artist use their affiliations to get the job done. Artists are affiliated but not limited only to by crews, peers, countries, medium, sponsors, galleries and friends. Without this an artist job is much more difficult. This also reflects on the old saying, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Every connection leads to a new adventure and is part of the process of the artist’s creation. This exhibit brings to Miami a solid lineup of artists who have a diverse background of both urban and fine artwork. Each artist is well known in their respective circles yet somehow were all affiliated by a different source. Opening reception is on December 3, at 7PM, the Art Basel Reception on Saturday, December 7th at 7pm, and Brisky BBQ on Sunday Dec. 8th 4-9pm.

García Rodero’s ground-breaking work and expansive career has documented the celebrated and mystified worlds within ritualistic ceremonies of Haiti, as well as festivals – religious or pagan – throughout Spain, India, Mediterranean Europe and the United States. For Rituales en Haití, García Rodero traveled to Haiti over a period of four years, where she documented voodoo rituals, producing a series of expressive portraits and moving scenes flanked by engaging documentary observations.
Rituales en Haití is the first major solo museum exhibition by the Magnum Photo photographer in the United States, whose work has been included in exhibitions in venues throughout the world, including MoMA PS1, New York, N.Y.; Museo del Prado, Madrid; Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy; Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, Spain; Bogota Museum of Modern Art, Bogota, Colombia; and Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, Paris. García Rodero’s extensive accolades include the prestigious W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund award, and she was recently elected to the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, taking the chair of the great Spanish writer and film director, Luis Garcia Berlanga. The exhibition is open Wednesday to Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free and open to everyone.
