1. Good & Plenty @ ArtCenter/South Florida (ends January 2)
A concise exhibition featuring resident ArtCenter artists from the last 26 years, Good & Plenty is a mixed bag with some great pieces, including Gavin Perry’s delightful epoxy-covered hanging area rug. The exhibition closes tomorrow, so try to catch it before it’s too late!
2. Second Saturday Art Walk @ Wynwood and Design District (January 8, 7-11 p.m.)
Still riding a post-Basel high, Miami’s art galleries should have some exciting shows this month (fingers crossed). With art lovers and scenesters alike out in full force, the streets and galleries should be packed. (Check out our previous Art Walk coverage and our Top 5 list for the January 2011 Art Walk.)
3. FotoKonbit Panel Discussion @ MOCA (January 8, 2 p.m.)
In conjunction with Bruce Weber’s woefully overshadowed photography exhibition Haiti/Little Haiti, this panel discussion will feature Haitian activist Jan Mapou and photographer Maggie Steber sharing their insight into Miami’s large and still-marginalized Haitian community.
4. Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth @ Norton Museum of Art (ends January 9)
If you live in Broward or (worse) Miami-Dade County, you may be reluctant to make the trek up North. But trust me: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth is worth the gas money. Cave’s sound suits and assemblage works are nothing short of breathtaking. And while you’re there, make sure to check out STARE, a fantastic photography exhibition including works by Walker Evans, Diane Airbus, and others.
