As an inaugural project, event and a Dutch initiative, Caleidoscoop is working directly with the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York is contributing with the specific purpose to produce a “satellite fair” that the Consulate can be exceedingly proud of and to demonstrate the ways in which cultural collaborations and contributions of the Dutch can be made during the highly-profiled December Art Fair week. The lot of 250 NW 24th street is empty now, but will soon be the home of a new 11-unit live/work space and the first development to break ground in the popular community since 2006. The motivation behind 250 Wynwood is “to create a neighborhood so people can keep creating and growing” a fitting mantra for this inaugural event that showcases international cultural involvement and collaboration. Providing artistic and curatorial support, Caleidoscoop is partnering with Kallenbach Gallery, Andenken and Unruly, three of the most respected galleries in the Netherlands. The promotion and organization of Caleidoscoop is made possible with the efforts of a number of entities.

Primary Projects (“PRIMARY”), an ambitious platform for contemporary artists and curators, presents Contender, new works from Kenton Parker during Art Basel Miami. In a solo show dedicated to self-portraiture through sculpture, painting, installation and photography, the artist challenges the viewer with a swell of raw emotions. On location at Milk Studios (Los Angeles), Parker calls on long-time friend and photographer, Patrick Hoelck, to capture the madness that makes-up the artist’s multiple personalities. Parker tacked on the roles of producer, director, editor and subject for this exhibition, exposing his various states of being behind and in front of the lens. Contender is the most extensive, self-referential and personal body of work of Parker’s career, revealing a narrative that ultimately speaks to the human condition.
Parker’s self-portraits challenge the boundaries between artist and subject in a process where he meticulously sketches and storyboards each photo shoot of himself. Scenarios, among others, include fighting, purging, nudity and apathy – plots so universal and powerfully executed that in pieces such as “From Bad to Worse” or “We Both Knew This Was Coming,” the line between how the artist is feeling and what he is staging is easily blurred. In “Always Sorry,” a lush installation that takes on the form and function of a flower boutique, Parker creates a unique opportunity to engage audiences with a poetic, intimate, living object. The life cycle of the flower traces the growth, beauty, decomposition and death as a ritual of existence. On a journey that asks viewers to become acutely aware of their own humanity, Parker invites them to relive their memories in his safe space at PRIMARY.
PRIMARY Opens New Gallery Space in Downtown Miami. Curated by Cristina Gonzalez, Typoe and Books Bischof, Contender will inaugurate PRIMARY’s new Downtown Miami 5,000-sq. ft. space.

PRIMARY’s relocation to Downtown is one of several organizations finding inspiration in the city center, including the Perez Art Museum of Miami, a satellite space by the Wolfsonian Museum, DWNTWN Arthouse, Dimensions Variable and more.

National YoungArts Foundation and Visionaire Present Free World Premiere of “A Portrait of Marina Abramovic”
The National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts), a non-profit organization that recognizes and supports the nation’s most talented young artists in the visual, literary, design, and performing arts, and Visionaire, the creative producers behind the limited-edition art and fashion collectible, today announced that YoungArts will present the world premiere of the new short film installation A Portrait of Marina Abramović by emerging artist Matthu Placek. Free public screenings will be held during Art Basel in Miami Beach, December 4 – 7, 2013, every 15 minutes beginning at 6:00 pm in the Jewel Box on the YoungArts campus, located at 2100 Biscayne Boulevard.
An internationally celebrated pioneer of performance art who was the subject of a blockbuster retrospective in 2010 at The Museum of Modern Art, Marina Abramović is best known for works that explore the physical limitations of the body, as well as the body’s potential to be a vehicle for spiritual transformation. Created by Placek, A Portrait of Marina Abramović marks the international premiere of his first major work. The 3-D film installation documents Marina Abramovic standing in the middle of a derelict building in Hudson, New York, that will be converted into the Marina Abramović Institute. The camera pans to capture the volume of the space, while evoking a sense of the life of the artist, her keen sense of transition and the imminence of renewal. Accompanying the image is an ancient Greek song, translated and recorded by the world-renowned Serbian singer Svetlana Spajić, recalling the cycle of birth, maturity, decay and rebirth.
The screenings will take place in a building going through its own rebirth. The “Jewel Box” has been stripped down to prepare for its transformation into part of YoungArts’ multi-disciplinary arts campus, designed by Frank Gehry. These screenings offer a one-time-only opportunity to experience the interior of the iconic Jewel Box as an open and exposed space, showcasing the building’s hammered stained glass “tapestries.” The creation and presentation of A Portrait of Marina Abramović marks the launch of VisionaireFILM, Visionaire’s film division, a multi-media forum for creative expression for internationally renowned artists, filmmakers, and personalities. The presentation of the film is made possible in part through the generous support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
