Stephanie Mercedes: I bite the brass between my teeth

"I bite the brass between my teeth" explores the precarious emotions of being queer in a society riddled with violence. Through kinetic sculptures, intimate photographs of the artist and her partner, sound, and melted bullets, Mercedes explores queer love through brass, one of the most sonically potent metals on this earth.

Stephanie Mercedes is a queer Latinx interdisciplinary artist who works between kinetic sculpture, photography, sound and performance. She is interested in creating rituals of mourning and primarily melts down weapons to create works of art. Mercedes has exhibited and performed at the Bronx Museum, the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian, the National Gallery of Art, the Museum of the Americas, and the Daura Museum. She has been funded by the Foundation for Contemporary Art, NALAC, Light Works, and Open Society Foundation. Mercedes recently produced their first opera "Never In Our Image" with CulturalDC.

Current Exhibition

Ileana Tolibia: The Impossibility of Nostalgia

The South Gallery will feature the paintings of Ileana Tolibia in her solo exhibition, The Impossibility of Nostalgia.

Ileana Tolibia is a Cuban-born artist based in Miami, Florida. She is known for her evocative and richly textured oil paintings that delve into the intricacies and paradoxes of human emotions. Her works can be characterized by the skillful and unexpected layering of ambiguous mixed images, which are inspired and chosen from nature, dreams, memories, art history, poetry, mythological and folkloric stories, photographs found in books and magazines, and even from social media. Through painting she metaphorically explores how sensory perceptions shape our experiences of our environment, leading us to become aware of complex interconnections, correlations, and congruences. As rapid technological advancement is aggressively changing the ways in which we interact with and engage our surroundings, Tolibia's vivid works, filled with swirling fluid brushstrokes, encourage viewers to engage in a reflective journey through memory and sentiment.

Upcoming Exhibition

Borders & Gutters: The Personal in Sequential Art

As a part of the gallery's Curator's Co-Lab program, exhibiting artist and lecturer Eduardo Rosas has organized this group art exhibition, which showcases nine emerging South Florida artists who specialize in narrative illustration. The artwork in Borders and Gutters deviates from the popular trope of superheroes and villains. Instead, it will feature pieces that draw from the underground world of Sequential Art, where the actions of each of the nine artists' distinctively rendered characters explore actual human truths and personal experiences.
