Jenny Larsson: Searching for Arctic Winter

June 18th, 2018 · Comments

Dancer choreographer Jenny Larsson enlivens our understanding of how the Far North's deep cold is essential to the balance of the Earth's biosphere. With the group known as Wild Beast Collective, she creates the interpretive dance performance Searching for Arctic Winter.

“In the winters up in the arctic when there’s no sunlight and no snow to reflect the moon, all that’s left is darkness. It’s a scary thought, these weather changes…”

Born in Sweden and based in Miami, Larsson is artistic director of the multidisciplinary international collective that hosts an annual residency in Florida. Wild Beast’s mission is to explore, stretch and deepen the experience of contemporary art by presenting site-specific projects and staging free public events to connect with local communities. Environmental issues inform and influence their work.

Deborah Mitchell: The Artist as Guide to The Everglades

June 4th, 2018 · Comments

Today, we take you to meet to artist Deborah Mitchell in her studio on Miami Beach, to talk about the ways that Florida’s southwest coast inspires her. The contested landscape, endangered by encroaching urban development and sea level rise, is where she engages as an artist and an advocate for North America’s only subtropical wilderness: The Everglades. Mitchell’s mindful practice expresses her affinity for this fragile ecology, and her desire to learn, share and preserve its science and history.

Live from Dakar 2018-Jolt Radio-16May2018

May 21st, 2018 · Comments

Today, we bring you Fresh Art International LIVE from Dakar, Senegal. We made the journey to West Africa in May 2018, to capture sounds of local art and culture and to document our first encounter with the biennial of contemporary African art known as Dak'Art.

In the first of our two live streaming broadcasts, you'll hear Marisol Rodríguez (Mexico City/Paris), one of the biennial's guest curators, talk about her work with a team of creatives based in the Hurricane Zone (Mexico's Yucatàn Peninsula, Central America and the Caribbean).

Also LIVE: our show from la Boite à Idée, or Idea Box, a cultural hub in Dakar's Mermoz district. In the garden of this space is where cultural activist Ken Aicha Sy, founder of Wakh'Art Music introduces us to a few of the creatives engaging in the local art and music scene. You'll hear from Ms. Sy, along with Franco-Senegalese artist Gabriel Dia, jazz guitarist Paride Pagnotti, I Science vocalist Corinna Fiore, and composer Nathan Fallou Fuhr. A modest local songwriter introducing himself simply as "Jean-Pierre," steps up to the microphone with his guitar to voice our melodic good-bye-for-now.

Key West: Creativity at the end of the Road-Jolt Radio-18Apr2018

April 23rd, 2018 · Comments

 

Come with us to the legendary Key West for conversations about creativity on two live streaming Fresh Art International radio shows. This cultural outpost sits quite literally at the end of the road, Mile 0 of U.S. Route 1, the highway that runs up the Atlantic Coast, from Florida to Canada. At the Studios of Key West, you'll find out what inspires the Studios’ director, why a painter who came to visit never left, and how three artists in residence have fallen in love with the island dream. Inside The Green Parrot bar, you'll meet Key West's Minister of Culture, the Parrot’s resident poet and a band from New Orleans that loves to play here!

Art and the Rising Sea-Jolt Radio-10Jan2018

January 20th, 2018 · Comments

On this live streaming radio program, we consider how artists, curators, architects and writers are responding to climate change in South Florida. King tides, flooding and eroding beaches are now part of everyday life. Our guests reveal how the rising sea has inspired two artist residency programs and an upcoming exhibition.

Natalia Zuluaga, Artistic Director at ArtCenter/South Florida, introduces the Center’s new Art in Public Life residency, a year-long opportunity for the selected artist to participate in shaping in the City of Miami Beach resiliency plan. She also talks about the exhibition Intertidal that imagines Miami's intertidal zone future, as a city above water at low tide, and flooded at high tide. 

 Also in studio, Ombretta Agro, Simon Faithfull, Will Rey, and Gustavo Oviedo share their roles in ARTSail, an ArtCenter residency exploring the Miami waterways, the South Florida coastline and the Keys. Our field recordings with recent ArtSail residents Blanca de la Torre and Mark Lee Koven to complete the picture of the floating residency's first year.

Special audio features: Archival Feedback, Stormtrack and Gustavo Oviedo, Boatski Tours

Fresh Talk: Ola Kolehmainen

June 2nd, 2016 · Comments

Finnish artist Ola Kolehmainen talks about his large-scale photographs of imperial Turkish architecture from the 16th century. Turkish collector Ahmet Kocabiyik–chairman of Borusan Holding company and owner of a significant contemporary art collection—made the project possible by commissioning the artist to photograph buildings designed by the great Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan. Prior to this commission, Kolehmainen’s work featured abstractions and reflections of contemporary and modern architecture. A six month residency in Turkey was a chance to explore the legendary architect's expansive design history.
